In Chinese culture, a baby’s first month (or fourth month in this case!) birthday is a cause for a celebration. Proud parents introduce their latest addition to friends and family by holding a Red Egg and Ginger Party. The symbolism behind the name is that eggs have long been a symbol of life changes and their round shape symbolizes harmony and happiness in life. Ginger is known to add a spicy touch and offer benefits to the new mother and to establish balance in the yin (cold) and yang (warm).
For Kayla’s Red Egg and Ginger Party, her parents wanted to put a nontraditional spin on the classic event by hosting a party that was fun for both kids and adults alike! The event sparkled with details like the custom made rhinestone letters and fun signage to label the food options. With thoughtfully sweet treats like homemade cookies, cake pops and root beer floats the younger guests had plenty of sweets to enjoy while the adults sipped champagne and drank craft beer.
Guests came dressed to the nines with “Glam-Ma”, who is always the most fabulously dressed at the party attending in a custom designed Qi Pao from Shanghai. While baby Kayla donned an adorable cream tulle dress and a ribbon tied by mom who is well known for her superior bow tying abilities!
