Birthday Party!

On Halloween, we had a joint birthday party for my two dear friends’ one year olds (one day apart).

I had the honor of helping with party decorations and the few weeks leading up to it have been so much fun preparing!

When I got pregnant with Mae I didn’t have many friends here, but within a few months into my pregnancy, I met these two girls who also happened to be pregnant.. CRAZY! They are both Japanese like me too (which is pretty rare here),  I just feel so blessed to have them in my life (along with all our little ones now:)). This birthday celebration was one that was very close to my heart:) Happy Birthday Lyllia & Hana!

Also, an added bonus, I got to help prep for a significant birthday party in person. Though I make a living on party decorations, I don’t get to attend the party, or even help set up what I made. So it was a very interesting experience. I got to see the whole process, and it was a very good learning experience for me.

Here are some pictures from the 1st birthday party!  Garlands and fans styled by me and the Number 1 hand crafted by the hosts Marie and Shinya

M and S’s taste and styling skills are amazing (Which explains their beautiful house), and I learned a lot from how they decorated with some of the pieces I’ve made.
