Korean Dol: Dr. Seuss “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” themed First Birthday Party

Little Wilson celebrated his first birthday in style!  His parents put together such an extravagant Dr. Seuss “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” themed First Birthday Party (aka Korean Dol or Doljanchi) at Los Coyotes Country Club in Buena Park.  According to Wilson’s mom, who spent an incredible amount of time and energy to plan for the big event, her inspiration came from the book, “Oh, The Places You’ll Go” by Dr. Seuss.  She loved the meaningful message of the book and the whimsical artwork and colors.  As a mom with high hopes and big dreams for her little man, it was a perfect theme!

While I was photographing some detail shots, Wilson’s mom told me that she came up with all the ideas for the decorations, which were then handcrafted by her crafty friends! From the dessert station, blue window shutters, stationary, signs, to all the small details, etc.    Wow!!  And the party was beautifully decorated and stylized by amazing event coordinators, Hanna and Christina, from One Sweet Day.  I love how they incorporated Dr. Seuss’ whimsical colors and modern decorations with some traditional korean elements.   Wilson’s mom sure knows how to bring her ideas to life!

In addition to Wilson being such a handsome little man, all the guests enjoyed the party with great food and were entertained by both the photo booth & caricature artist.  A lot of kids and their families were happy to get their caricatures drawn and pictures taken which became their keepsake and party favors!  The kids were also very happy to take a Dr. Suess book/puzzle home with them!
Now, let’s take a look at all the fun festivities!

Happy birthday Wilson! Thank you for letting me celebrate this special day with you!
