Korean American Mommy Grace has shared her first son Nathan's birthday celebration with us. She has tons of great ideas that made his First Birthday "Doljanchi" very special. There's Nathan on his Dol Sang (Birthday table) in his traditional Korean Hanbok. What a cutie!
Also, take a close look at the decorative towers. One is made of cereal and maybe you can guess the others. I personally like how the Dduk (rice cakes) are individually wrapped to keep them moist and yummy. Its a favorite after party snack for sure! Below, is a table for the doljabi game has been prepared by Grace with a fabulous twig tree holding photo ornaments of Nathan's photo shoot.
Party favors are a great keepsake and decoration for a Doljanchi (Korean First Birthday). Here Grace used small hand towels to look like ice cream in a paper cone. Anything wrapped in cellophane, especially holding yummy cookies are another fabulous flare for the party!
The party banner was all mommy Grace's idea (colors, cow image and ice cream cones). Heesook of Dohl Posters & More gave it a final designers touch and the banner was printed with KOKO Printing Co. adding the perfect final touch to the whole celebration.
Thank you Grace and Nathan for sharing your special First Birthday with us!
