My Niece E's 1st Birthday Celebration

During this recent trip to CA, I was fortunate enough to celebrate my niece E's 1st birthday with her and all our family and friends. In Korean culture, a baby's first birthday celebration (also called "dol"-- see here for more info) is a very special occasion because back in the day, it was a big deal for a baby to make it to his/her first birthday. These days, a dol can be as grand as a wedding reception. So I was not surprised when I saw the amazing setup of E's first birthday party. Okay, I was a little surprised. My sister went all out... and it was beautiful!
