Simone had her first birthday party today! In Korean tradition, a child’s Doljanchi is a big deal, and Simone’s mom created a gorgeous party with a French travel theme and including lots of pink, gold sparkles, and whimsical designs.
The afternoon started off with Simone’s one year portraits…and her brother joined her for some as well!
They are just the cutest!
This party was birthday party paradise. Face painting, a bounce house, crafts, cotton candy, and the most delicious food and desserts!
Later in the afternoon, Simone was dressed in a traditional hanbok and guests watched as she played a game called doljabi. Family members guess what profession she is going to choose and then the child picks an item that says what she will be when she grows up. Simone chose a paint set…though also the stethoscope, so maybe she’ll be a doctor and a painter!
Time for singing Happy Birthday and the cake smash!
It was such a pleasure being a part of the festivities today! Enjoy the sneak peek!
