What’s black and white and adorable all over? You’re about to find out. Mama and event planner Party With Chloe has totally outdone herself on this one. With a towering cake that’s borderline too cute to cut into, tiny felt houses and a box filled with gummy favors, she’s going to be hard pressed to top this one for sweet baby girl’s 2nd. Complete with photos from Babypink Studio, there’s more right here.
From Party With Chloe… My daughter Nayun’s 1st birthday was held at Ritz Carlton Hotel, Toronto. The staff was amazingly hospitable and food was great. As a mom and as a party stylist, I wanted to make her 1st birthday very special.
The main concept of the party was Scandinavian owl. Like a modern Scandinavian kid’s room, I wanted to style the party as Chic and Cute – using bold patterns, little lux touch of gold and vivid color accents, warm felts, natural plants and cute owls. My two girls were dressed with Scandinavian designer’s black dress and black hats to match with the party. Sharon from Bloom Cake Co. made a birthday cake, matching cupcakes and cake pops and those were absolutely beautiful and of course tasty!
As a Korean traditional ceremony, during “Doljabi” for 1st birthday party, the baby is propped up at a table of various foods and an assortment of objects and urged to pick up one of the items. It is believed the item the baby picks up symbolically foretells his or her own future or would influence his or her fate.
For examples money means wealthy, traditional book means scholar, five color threads means artistic skills, horse medallion means high ranked government officer and stethoscope means medical doctor. During Doljabi ceremony, Nayun wore Korean traditional dress and picked yellow thread. She may become a famous designer one day!
In the theme of my princesses’ black hats, we hired famous kid’s magician Tricky Ricky. Everyone had a fabulous time!
