I gotta say, Balloon Monster was awesome! He was a show on his own! We had him do his “magic” on the outdoor patio area and it was perfect! He had his own music and he was putting on a show. I’ve been to other parties where they had balloon twister and face painting, but they weren’t entertaining. THIS GUY WAS ENTERTAINING. I could watch him all day twisting balloons. All of my guest loved him! I loved his balloon designs, including his unique headbands and different type of balloons. He also does bubble madness at the last 15 minutes but most of kids left by then. But he was so fun. I highly recommend him!

The ladies, Ivy and Joyce, were such a sweethearts! I emailed them first and then we had 2 meetings. They spent all the time with me since the beginning. They made me feel comfortable and less stressed about the event. They were both very courteous, kind and understanding of my budget. And there was no shape or form of pushing me for the service. They made sure I had enough time to think about my daughter’s first birthday. They were very responsive by email (which I LOVED). They gave me many different ideas that would make my event beautiful yet not overwhelming. I felt that they shared the same vision as what I was visioning for my baby’s monumental event! I think that’s one of the reasons why I went with them.

They have two styles: traditional/fusion and modern. I went with the fusion design for the head table and modern for the welcome and photo table. The price was GREAT for the service that I received. They went above and beyond during the day of the event. They came and set up for the event early. We had to make few changes to the setup because of unforeseen circumstance but Ivy pulled it through. All the decorations were above and beyond my expectation. It was soooooo beautiful. The first word that came out of guests’ mouths were “WOW”. IT WAS THAT GOOD! Ivy also helped us with the Doljabi event and clean up. Even after the event, my parents and husband’s parents kept telling me how beautiful the decorations were. I wish I known them for my wedding =)

I’ve been wanting Ovenstudio to take pictures for my baby even before she was conceived! I made an appointment. I usually don’t spend this much money on pictures but because your baby celebrates her 1st birthday once so I decided to invest! And IT DID NOT DISAPPOINT!

It’s a wife and husband team. They had a helper too (I’m guessing because the wife was pregnant?). The wife and the helper was so sweet to my daughter. Playing with her and making her laugh and smile. I was REALLY worried because my daughter does not like stuff on her hair, but the wife and helpful totally distracted her and was about to take ALL the photos with the hair pieces! IT WAS MIRACLE!!!

They were so great that they’re sooooooo accommodating . The pictures turned out great! My husband didn’t like as much (but still loved it) because he said it was too overexposed (too bright!). Well, that’s the style I was going for, so I was happy with it.

안녕하세요.  저희딸의 돌잔치을 이번주말에 잘치루웠어요.  준비하느랴 진짜 스트레스도 많이 싸이고 했는데요 주의 사람들이 자 너무 잘했다고 칭찬해 주셔서 너무 다행이였어요.  

 

이 후기로 다른 맘들에게 조금 도움이 될수있었으면 좋겠어요!

 

전 영어가 편해서 영어로 할께요! 

  

Originally we had about 50 people in mind... but guest list grew to about 70 people (60 adults and 10 kids/babies). But last second we have about 60 people attending. I was so thankful! 

 

 

행사장: Los Coyotes Country Club (4*)

 

This was the most difficult part of planning: the venue.  The venue itself was beautiful. Compared to other venues, the minimum charge was more do-able. I worked with Sharen.  They were pretty good about emailing you back (~2 days).  I asked her a LOT of questions and she was very patient with me.  I was very grateful.  The venue itself was very busy, they have many events going on all the time.  We were fortunate that there was no other events going on at the same time.  We booked Cypress Palm room which can accommodate up to 80 guests.  TIP: If you want two tier head table, then you do not want more than 7 tables in the room.  I had 7 tables and 8 tables would have been too crowded.  We had a nice patio area where we had balloon artist.  

 

I wish there were more servers available during the party. I had to run to the kitchen to get someone to get my question answered and get items for the party. There was only two people taking care of us for ~65 guests.  I think that's too little but I don't know the standards these days.  

 

The food was on the saltier side. We got NY Steak and Mahi Mahi. The food was overcooked (but expected) but I think the flavor was above average for the banquet food.  Thankfully, people actually enjoyed the food.  I was too busy with everything I didn't get to eat too much.

TIP: Make sure you give event planners the floor plan beforehand to make sure they know what goes where.  If you’re brining something for decorations, make sure you bring all the items ahead of time before the event  so that everything gets set up on time! 

 

TIP: I think the side-curtains next to the banner (현수막) make a huge difference!

Centerpiece/Flowers: 엄마표!

 

I went to LA Original Flower Mart on the day before the event.   We found a flat fee parking at $6 all day. Admission was $2 per person. Check the times here: http://originallaflowermarket.com/ TIP: Bring cash!! They didn’t charge me any taxes in any of the places… I’m thinking because I had cash??

 

I got:

Hydrangeas : $7 / 5 stems  (I got 7)

White Roses: $5/ 25 stems (I got 1) 

Pink Roses: $4.75/ 2 dz (I got 1)

Pink Carnations: $3.75 (I got 3)

Pink fillers: $5/ bunch (I got 3)

 

I got 12 mason jars for $9 at Walmart. 2 rolls of laced burlap for $5 each (use Michael’s coupon!).  I was able to make 12 jars of flowers and center piece for the head table all for about $110! Not too bad right? Everyone LOVED the flowers. They ALL wanted to take them home.

디저트 바 = 엄마표!


I opted out on getting a cake because they charge $2.50/person for cutting fee. There’s no cake cutting fee if you serve your guest yourself but didn’t want to do that.  So we decided to do dessert table instead.  Turns out it was more economical than getting a sheet cake!  I called around numerous bakeries and they were charting about $100+ for full sheet cakes.  This way I was able to save more money. 

 

Cream puffs = 만미당(40 cent/puff)

Cupcakes = Wholefoods ($1/cupcake)

Cheese rolls = Portos

Guava rolls = Portos

White Cuban Cake = Portos

Mini dessert platter = Portos (THIS WAS A HIT!!)

Cheesecake Factory Cheesecake = Costco

Macaroons = Costco

떡 = 임방아

 

Tip: If you’re picking up your desserts from Portos, there was 30 min wait (even if you ordered ahead) to pick up your order.  Time accordingly.

떡: 임방아 (4*)


Of course you need to have rice cake for 1st birthday.  We got 3 assorted tray ($50) with 무지개 떡, 꿀떡, 팥 수수떡.  I wanted to use some for decorations for the head table and put some on the dessert table for the guests.  There were a LOT of rice cake left over, we packed everything for the guests.  I think Korean people loved it more than non-Koreans, well expected.  We prefer 임방아 because their rice cake is more tasty and I like the texture (chewiness).  Minus one star for no delivery!

   

 

Chalk board: designed by MY SISTER! (5*)

 

My sister is an art major so thought she would be a perfect person to ask for help on this!  I sent her a website on how to make chalkboard printables. 

http://howtonestforless.com/2013/01/04/how-to-make-chalkboard-printables/

 

Costco has 16x20 poster board for $14.99.  I asked my sister to make a chalkboard with writings on a 16x20 and send it to Costco to print.  You can pick it up at your local stores.  Mine was done the next day and picked it up from their store. 

There’s a really good site for free font!: http://www.dafont.com/

You can sign up here for free fonts a week: https://fontbundles.net/free-fonts

Place cards and Programs: 엄마표!

 

I invested this machine called Cricut (https://us.cricut.com). It’s essentially a cutting machine.  I was able to make place cards, guestbook, programs and cupcake hearts with this machine.  It took me awhile to cut everything and assemble, but I think it turned out well.  My sister
in law wrote the names in Calligraphy!

답례품: 아빠표!​ (5*)

 

Wholefoods jams were $2.19 for 10oz bottles.   TIP: If you buy in by the box, they give you 10% discount!  I bought 5 boxes of 12.  I soaked it in baking soda + water solutions over night and label came off very easily. You have to scrub off the glue with sponge but it was very easy.  And then I made the label with butterfly and hot glued onto the jar.  Everyone complimented on the design =)

Party Favors for kids: 

 

I had ~10 kids/babies coming to our party and I wanted them to be entertained during lunch. So I put goodie bag together.  

 

I got canvas bags from Amazon and I decided to iron-on each kid’s name onto the bag to be more personalized.  

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0134D4W9O?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=ox_sc_act_title_5&smid=A2HPCTZPCCVCQP

 

And then I put some stamps (50 count/$8.45), bubbles (24 count/$8.86), crayon (8 colors pack of 4/$2), and activity book (8 books/$2) into the bag.  All from Amazon. 

 

I got some boardbooks for the babies since they probably won’t be able to use the party favors but I wanted to get something for special baby guests.

 

Dr. Seuss’s ABC ($3): http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0679882812?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=ox_sc_act_title_2&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

 

Baby Touch and Feel ($3.43): http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0756634687?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=ox_sc_act_title_1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

 

One of my friend had Happy Baby organic teething crackers in the goodie bag for her baby’s party and I thought that was a good idea.  You can get them from Target and babies love them! 

 

I also bought $1 items from Target, Walmart, and Dollar Tree.  I hope kids liked it.

Guest Book: 엄마표!


I wanted to do something special AND remember who voted for what items for Doljabi.  So I came up with this idea!  Each page has items for Doljabi and people sign-in as they put their guesses into the jar.  

I got the scrapbook stickers to decorate each page.

사회자 – 엄마!


It was very nerve wrecking because I HATE speaking in public but since they’re all friends and family so I thought it was less nervous.  I have to say, it was hard to juggle everything from coordinating, music, emceeing at the same time. TIP: Have someone emcee the event for you. I was doing everything by myself and at the end I appeared more flustered and disorganized. 

 

For the 돌잡이 event, she grabbed money and stethoscope  (dream for all Korean parents, lol).

 

Prizes (target giftcards): 

Raffle for “money”, 아차상

Quiz questions: what color hat did baby wear when she was born at the hospital (from the video), What time was she born (from the video), how many teeth does she have (from chalkboard), what’s her favorite song (from chalkboard), what’s her middle name.  

 

Tip: I think more quiz questions the better.  People were engaged!

 

 

성장 비디오: Animoto, 외할아버지표 (5*)

www.animoto.com

This video editor is REALLY easy to use. You basically upload your photos/videos, choose music, choose spacing (fast/slow pace), and DONE! So easy. You can put captions and you can choose some pictures go slower, etc.  I love the whole transition between pictures, very smooth.  There’s a 14 day trial if you want to try (but has “trial” watermark on the final video).  I paid small fee of $16 for monthly subscription (had animoto logo at the end but I didn’t care).   The video turned out pretty well. TIP: I think guests enjoyed the videos more than the pictures (baby crying, first food experience, first time rolling over, first time crawling, rolling over, etc).  My video was about 7 minutes.  



Entertainment: Balloon Monster (5*)

 

I gotta say, Balloon Monster was awesome!  He was a show on his own!  We had him do his “magic” on the outdoor patio area and it was perfect! He had his own music and he was putting on a show. I’ve been to other parties where they had balloon twister and face painting, but they weren’t entertaining. THIS GUY WAS ENTERTAINING.  I could watch him all day twisting balloons. All of my guest loved him!  I loved his balloon designs, including his unique headbands and different type of balloons.  He also does bubble madness at the last 15 minutes but most of kids left by then.  But he was so fun. I highly recommend him!  Tip: carry/wear the twisted balloon with you so that it encourages your guests  to get one too!
