A first birthday celebration

Earlier this month, we celebrated Baby Pizza’s dol, which is a traditional Korean first birthday celebration. I kept telling myself we were going to have a simple party, but it started getting more elaborate once we started planning, and somehow we ended up with a guest list of over 100 people. With large families on both sides and friends who are like family to […]


1st Birthday

Last month was Max’s first, which I’m still in denial about. I always knew I wanted the event to be small, since Max would be too young to remember anything.

Purple Elephant 3rd Birthday Party

I am still a little misty eyed over the fact that my sweet and silly first born is now 3 years old! My oh my how the time has flown. In planning Miss H’s 3rd birthday party I knew one thing for sure – the general theme was going to be “purple” because Miss H […]
