This modern RACE CAR + CHEVRON PRINT FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Morgan of Morgan Bayard Photography.
I love the tradition of the Korean Dol or Doljabi where the birthday girl or boy is presented with items like a football, stethoscope, string and microphone and whichever item the child picks up foretells what his future will hold! What a fun and interesting way to celebrate a first birthday! A few ideas that I like in this modern chevron print party are:
The silver sports car cake topper
The Marshmallow Pops dipped in blue candy melt
The raffle held for guests to predict which item the birthday child would choose during the Dol
This is what Kerri said about the party- “I have been doing yoga for about 6 months now and LOVE it. The instructor at the Yoga studio just started offering yoga parties so I, of course hadto host one! My daughter, Karlie loves doing the poses with me so I thought it would be fun to do a mother/daughter party with a small group of friends.
I am a freelance graphic designer (also design for an AWESOME frame company, Wild Sorbet Frame Company) so I designed all the party printables (available in my etsy shop, Big K, little k designs). I wanted to keep the food mostly healthy so I chose to do hummus cupcakes, trail mix, fruit, spinach dip, fruit water, and peach tea.
We started off by choosing toe rings (it’s a yoga thing-hehe) and then getting on our yoga mats. The instructor guided us through lots of poses that were kid friendly. Our daughters had so much fun getting to jump around and be silly. We then gave the daughters a foot massage and then they went to play while the mommie’s enjoyed a few minutes of quiet time and a foot massage from the instructor.
We then enjoyed our snacks and let the kids play while the mommies got in some gab time. Our instructor made the cutest treat bags where she shaped pipe cleaners into yoga poses.
It was such a fun party and it was great to have some mother, daughter time. Everyone had a blast!”
