Evelyn is the sweetest one year old girl. She had her first Doljanchi, Korean first birthday party. This event blesses the child with a prosperous
future. Evelyn’s family currently lives in NYC, but her family wants to celebrate her first Dol with their close friends and family in Atlanta,
Mia and Brett is a lucky parent having three gorgeous children, Sophie, Olivia, and little Evelyn. They did an amazing job planning the party. The party was a blast with plenty of foods, drinks, and filled with fun and laughter from the Crawford families and friends.
There was an iPad setup to play the slideshow from Eveylyn’s first year, cards for guests to write messages to Evelyn, and also guessing cards for the Doljabi. The Doljabi is a first birthday tradition where the birthday child is given a set of objects to choose from. The birthday child will pick an item to symbolize his/her future. The four Doljabi items (and meanings) were, a thread (longevity), a calligraphy brush (scholar), a bow and an arrow (courage), and coins (prosperity). Evelyn immediately reached for the calligraphy brush for her first pick. We have got a future scholar in the house!
Thank you Mia and Brett for the opportunity capturing the important milestone of Evelyn’s first Dol. Happy birthday sweet Evelyn!
