In the past two years, I've set up more Dol parties than I would have ever imagined in my entire life. And every time I get approached by a mom facing 1st Dol of their little precious, it is my duty to guide them in staying within the budget, setting up a nice decor, and most of all, making sure that the birthday child and the family become the main star of the day.
1st birthday is an occasion to show off how well you have taken care of your child through the very 1st year of their life and how healthy & well they have grown. It definitely is an occasion when all moms deserve to be recognized for their efforts.
These days, it seems to be a trend to add much of traditional elements to the Dol table setting. But, dilemma with this is that most of the modern table is not suitable for traditional set up and may or may not be perfect match with the intended look. For moms seeking to incorporate traditional elements into general Dol setting, I recommend that there be a simple traditional set up for photo taking & Dol jabi purpose.
You can easily set up the 'low-rise traditional table' by displaying any item you'd like. This table can be displayed by putting baby's "go moo shin" which is worn with Han-bok, Bok ju mu nee, or even a traditional fan... decorate it to your taste.

Depending on where the Dol party is held, guest centerpiece should be set up accordingly. Another factor which determines the type of guest centerpiece to set up may be the hour of day.
If you use fresh flowers on the Dol table, it's always a great idea to 'share some' for either the photo table or dol jabi table. Even if it just a small amount, this becomes the finishing touch for the Dol set up
