Jonah’s Superhero Korean First “Dol” Birthday Party!
Check out this adorable Superhero Themed Dol! Event details and photos shared by Cathy Murai Photography.
“After months and months of planning for Jonah’s superhero-themed Korean first birthday party (aka “Dol” or “Dohl”), the big day finally arrived. Jonah’s Super Mom and Dad really used their super powers to throw one of the most creative and fun-packed birthday parties my husband and I have ever been to! We had such a magical time photographing Jonah’s big celebration at Maggiano’s Little Italy at The Grove! Everything was so beautifully planned and decorated that I couldn’t help but “ooh and aah” at all of the details! I also enjoyed observing the guests’ surprised reactions as they walked into the room. There were so many activities for all superheros – a caricature artist, photo booth (taken by my husband!), Korean traditional game (Doljabi), delicious food & dessert, etc. – that all the guests had a blast!
The effort that Jonah’s mom put in preparing for this big event was like planning a wedding, seriously! She went way above and beyond in preparing for this big celebration! I especially love all of her talented DIY projects that she put together! She created capes, masks, and custom superhero-themed favors for all 14 kids. Each cape was customized for each kid with their initials on the back! She also made 65 cape lollies and over 300 stars for all the garlands and Doljabi sticks!! Every detail was spectacular! To add to her creativity, I designed and created a front-page newspaper layout with an article that was written by Jonah’s mom, a Welcome Sign, and a Doljabi Board with the images that I captured from Jonah’s first year portrait session that we had prior to the party. My husband and I also made some superhero props that all the guests seemed to have fun with at the photo booth!”
