Eden Rose Kim Turns 1


Today, Tiger mom and Declan Chase attended Eden Rose Kim turns one. Tiger mom first time witnesses doljanchi. It’s a Korean tradition that celebrates the first birthday of a baby. This ceremony blesses the child with a prosperous future and has taken on great significance in Korea. Eden wears a hanbok and a traditional hat.

The highlight of the dol is a ritual where Eden is placed in front of a table of foods and objects such as threads, art palette, pencil, stethescope, watch, whisk, calculator and money. Eden is then urged to pick up an object from the table. It is believed the one selected will foretell Eden’s future.


Declan’s forecast Eden will pick the art palette and he is indeed right. Eden picked the art Palette. We’ll see if Eden will grow up to be an artist. Time will tell =))

The Birthday ceremony continues with the usual one. Today’s theme was humungous balloons, confetti and tassels by Cottontail Events. Below are the details of the dessert tables. It’s indeed pretty and fun!IMG_3851 IMG_3853 IMG_3854 IMG_3855 IMG_3857 IMG_3859

Here’s to more details of the adult’s table decorations. Also keeping the balloons and tassels themes. But this time, we added gold branches on the table. Loving every bit of it. It’s so pretty!

Kid’s birthday would not be completed without activities. See sniplets on the kids enjoying the caricature, water based tattoo and magicians.  Do you think Declan looks similar with the picture drawn by the caricature artist?

The milestone corner is always needed for 1st birthday. It reminds how fast the baby grows within a year. Cottontail Events nailed it by making it so pretty.
