A Twist on Tradition: Sera's First Birthday

In light of my younger daughter Sera turning five this weekend, wanted to reminisce and look back at her first birthday party already four years ago!  How time flies!  As the first birthday is a significant celebration in Korean culture, for her party, we wanted to highlight many cultural elements with a more modern approach.  Even now, I still love seeing all the creative efforts and talents that came together for this event and especially love looking back at the images of my little baby - as a baby! 

 

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS

  • Sweets display with traditional rice cakes and nostalic Korean candies
  • Fusion Korean style tacos and kimchee quesadillas made to order and chilled Korean beverages  
  • Cherry blossom tree table arrangements with glass globes accented with fresh blooms
  • Vintage lace table overlays and custom taffeta garden rose chair skirts
  • Korean traditional dance performances
  • Freshly popped Korean rice crackers packaged on site as healthy favors
  • Birthday cake design inspired by Sera's traditional Korean dress

Hello Kitty Extravaganza

 

My generation was the original Hello Kitty test subjects leading to her now legendary fame, so planning this particular birthday celebration and being given permission to shop at the Sanrio store to my hearts content (unlike my eight-year old self), was pretty close to a dream come true!

 

We had the privilege of working with the greatest team of professionals at the just as iconic Beverly Hills Hotel.  Pictures were limited to just our camera phones, but hope it can provide a glimpse of all the amazing details that went into this very fabulous event!

 

Oh and yes, we know Hello Kitty and Rusty the Car aren't obvious friends, but in this case we made an exception for the birthday girl's big brother =)!
