Best Kids Parties: Japanese Theme

My Party

Name: Tallulah
Location: Perth, Australia

Our daughter Tallulah was born in Tokyo so we thought it was fitting to have a Japanese theme for her first birthday!

Our colour inspiration was taken from the Japanese flag so think red and white polka dots! We live in an apartment so we decided to have the party under a tree in a beautiful park in our neighbourhood. We arranged vintage crochet blankets on the grass, strung lanterns from the branches and hung happy birthday bunting.

We made all the food which really set the japanese mood of the party. Tasty treats included edamame cups, sushi, soba noodle cups and our favourite sweet sushi made from fish lollies and rice crispies! Our adult guests even sipped on Asahi which is japanese beer!

The biggest hit of the party was the photobooth we made. We strung some super cute fabric between two trees, made some fun props and set up a tripod with a remote and hey presto we had our very own photobooth! Seriously it was a blast and the photos are hilarious!

One of my favourite DIY projects of the day was the onesie I made for Tallulah which she changed into after eating her Miffy cake. She became a life-size piece of sushi complete with a wasabi and ginger headband!

Thanks Renee! Readers, say hi to Renee and Talullah on Renosslah.
