Inflatable Invitations

I knew I wanted to create Asher's party around Geronimo Balloons. So I looked around to see if there were more creative ways to incorporate a balloon into the invitations itself. Gotta love pinterest!!! Why not use a real balloon for the invitation and print the details on the balloon?!

*the white out doesn't help with the aesthetics but it helps with privacy


I created the postcard to attach the balloon to with My Digital Studio. And because geometric is so hot right now,  I decided to use this background paper. This geometric theme became an integral part of the actual party.

Dol Towers


First birthdays are a BIG deal. (Especially in the Korean culture.) You can learn more about Dol here.

To celebrate and honor some of the modern and traditional Korean customs, I made my own Dol Towers. These Dol towers are used to decorate the main tables. The towers consist of the child's name, Chuk Dol "Happy First Birthday", zodiac animal for the year the child was born, and other fun decorations. Because of my time constraint, I only made two.


I emptied out my oatmeal containers.


Turned the canister upside down, traced, and cut out a cardboard circle to place on to the canister so I would have a flat and even surface.

Stuffed the bottom of the canister with tissue and then glued the cardboard circle on top. (The purpose of the tissue was so that the cardboard circle would not cave in the middle.)


Trimmed the card stock to the height of the canister and covered up the sides and the top. (I used two card stocks for the sides and overlapped them.)

Centered the printouts onto the towers and adhered to the card stock.




Sorted out the beans and glued them onto the canisters. (I would suggest you place them on to make sure there is enough space and then glue, little sections at a time.)




I wanted my colors to include some gold, so I spray painted the larger beans and once they were dried, glued those on.

It definitely wasn't one of my quick and easy projects, but it was definitely worth making them! It'll add the extra punch to my head table. More pictures to come in the next couple of weeks!


{Project Details}

  • Two large oatmeal canisters
  • Chip board, coaster board, or card board
  • Different colored beans
  • Whisper White card stock
  • Printouts of zodiac animal, name, etc. (Free printables here.)

First birthday celebration (Dol)

Only a couple weeks away till my baby is ONE YEAR'S OLD!!! I have myself in party mode and have been preparing a great deal, which I will share in the weeks to come. But today, I wanted to share the Doljabi.

Dol or First Birthday is a big celebration in Korean culture. The highlight of the dol is where the child is placed in front of various objects such as a pen, money, yarn, and a ball. The child is encouraged to pick an object and whatever is selected foretells the child's future. For example, if the baby picks up the yarn, then the child will be destined to have a long life.

To make it fun for our guests, they will be asked to guess what our baby will choose and then given a ticket to be placed in the corresponding jar. At the end, we will draw a winner from the corresponding jar of the object that was chosen.

Here is what the sign will look like:

Here are the coordinating labels that I will place on clear jars:
