Our son Nathan turned 8 in January and since the weather is usually cold and wet during that month, we wanted to create a fun indoor party at home for him and his friends to enjoy. Nathan loved the idea of having a carnival theme with games, tickets and prizes!

My daughter is a real girly girl - she insisted on 'no boys' for her party, bar her beloved toddler brother. So I went for bright and cheerful colours and patterns and a menu designed to whet the appetite of the fussiest of kids.
Korean first birthday parties are a big cultural celebration called "dol janchi". The main event is a "doljabi" which is when symbolic items (such as string - health, pencil - scholar, money - wealth, etc.) are placed in front of the child to choose as a prediction of his future.
