  • Jonah's 1st Birthday
    march 8, 2013

    Hi friends!

    Spring is around the corner and 2013 seems to be zipping by.  Call me crazy but I ‘m already scheming ideas for Deacon’s 1st birthday!  The 1st birthday is a huge milestone in the Korean tradition and the party planner in me already has the wheels turning in my head.  Unfortunately, Deacon’s 1st birthday won’t be for a while so until then I’ll hold you over with this dinosaur-themed 1st birthday I helped plan and coordinate in December.

    Jonah’s mom wanted to incorporate fun, bright colors of teal, lime green, and orange into her son’s party through the stationery, decor, and desserts.  Throw in some dinosaur tracks to help guide guests to the main dining area, a grand head table filled with scrumptious desserts from A Cupcake Story and Chef Julie Yoon, and spotted balloons from The Rabbit Hole (I accidentally popped one as we were setting up), edible favors, and you’ve got a recipe for success!

    Check out the images from Tim Park of Tim Park Photography:


    I made “dinosaur egg nests” using cupcake liners, kraft filler paper, and Trolli eggs (one of my fav candies ever!)


    Vanilla bean cupcakes made by the talented Chef Julie Yoon


    Pistachio & Mango macarons made by Jessica of A Cupcake Story (beats Bottega Louie any day!)


    Dinosaur cake made by the mom’s friend who works at a very popular bakery nearby!


    You can’t really see it but we cut out letters to spell out RAWR and stuck them in a potted plant to round out the head table + how great are those giant, round balloons??


    The beautiful family in the train we used as a photobooth



    Taro bread aka “dinosaur eggs” were served as favors for the adults


    Mini burlap bags filled with Trolli eggs for the children’s favors



    Happy 1st Birthday Jonah!!
