Our first coverage is of adorable baby Dylan who turned 1! This fun filled circus themed party was inspired by one of Dylan’s favorite books “If I Ran the Circus,” by Dr. Seuss. An amazing DIY party pulled together by Mina, Jen (Nunn Better Design), and many more friends held at South Coast Botanic Garden. The remarkable desserts were provided by My Sweet & Saucy Shop, and, as always, they outdid themselves. All the signage, place-cards, and printouts were designs from a birthday party pack, and Jen generously customized all the additional signage. David, the balloon twister, stole the show and had guests, young and old alike, following him around. As guests entered they voted on the Doljabi game, a Korean tradition for a baby's 1st year, said to predict their future. Guests choose between Money – wealth, Book – education, Yarn – long life, and Rice – never go hungry. At the close of the party all four items were placed in front of Dylan and the one he chose would predict his future! After much deliberation on the part of the birthday boy he selected Money!
It was a blast photographing the amazing party and Mina did a great job putting it all together. Thanks for having us a part of your special day.
