Floral First Birthday Party
Floral First Birthday Party Details:
This is what Anna shared about the party- “I started dreaming of my baby girl’s first birthday party as soon as she was born! Since I had been taking monthly pictures of her with floral numbers, I decided to keep it cohesive and go with a floral/garden theme for her party. My vision for the party was to keep it simple and classy with a touch of whimsical and pretty. We also incorporated Korean traditions, such as having our sweet birthday girl wear a hanbok (traditional Korean dress) for part of the day, doing dohljabi (a tradition where you place various objects – each symbolizing a different future – in front of the baby on their first birthday for them to choose), and displaying rice cakes.
Despite the rain that afternoon, our venue, Jolanes Cafe, provided the perfect amount of light in their glass-surrounded atrium. The amazing florist, Sara from Vale of Enna, truly made my vision come to life with her beautiful floral arrangements on the head table and cakes as well as her lush bayleaf garlands on the ivory white chiffon backdrop and large, round balloons. Urban Icing made the two-tiered ruffled cake, gold leafed semi-naked cake, and smash cake. Our dear friend and incredibly talented photographer, Chris Kim, captured all of the special moments and details of our baby girls big day.
I put together the dohljabi guessing game display with wooden crates and jars. I DIY’ed the monthly picture frame, wishing tree, and all of the calligraphy on the signs.”
