PARTY DETAILS, as told by Angie
;

THEME & INSPIRATION

For Eliana’s 1st birthday/Korean Dol, we were inspired by a photo of a tiered ruffle cake & a photo of beautiful pink/blue cupcakes that became our color palette. Eliana’s mom loved the softness and mix of colors which we incorporated throughout all the details of this special occasion.

DECORATIONS

As guests entered, they were directed to their seats with wooden chalkboard hearts and a manzanita photo tree. On the “dolsang” / head table, we displayed a trio of ruffle cakes along with varied height floral arrangements in pinks, green and white. We also included crepe paper peony flowers in crystal candle holders to accent the sugar and fresh flowers for a clean but romantic look. A soft pink banner with Eliana’s name was printed as our backdrop. For centerpieces, wach table had alternating high and low arrangements of manzanita branches with hanging flowers, peonies, roses and hydrangeas. At each place setting, we added to the textures of flowers by greeting guests with a handmade DIY crepe paper peony. These were made following this Martha Stewart tutorial.

DOLJABI CEREMONY & RAFFLE

The highlight of the Korean 1st birthday is the doljabi, a ceremony where the baby chooses an item that will foretell her future occupation. For the doljabi raffle, we gave guests 2 matching numbered charms and asked them to drop one in the container showing the item they thought Eliana would choose. After the doljabi ceremony (she picked the gavel!), we selected raffle winners from those who guessed correctly. Guests had a great time cheering Eliana on!

FAVORS

Guests were welcomed to a dessert/candy bar that included candies and baked goods including strawberry Pocky sticks, cookies, macarons, cake pops, marshmallows, strawberry milk and more. Eliana’s young friends received customized canvas bags or mini cardboard suitcases filled with age appropriate goodies.

ELI SAYS:

Where did you find the matching numbered charms? I am searching for small, inexpensive charms to attach to friendship bracelets for a raffle and haven’t had any luck yet. We anticipate 3-4 bracelets per guest, with 300-350 guests. Having matching numbers makes the raffle easier and more fun. Any alternative to the number charm though is greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Sincerely,
Stumped

The charms were ordered from Oriental Trading. Then we wrote on the charms with paint marker that can purchased from any craft store like AC Moore or Michaels.
