After Ro and Ree chose a Chinese theme for their birthday party, we went on several fun scouting expeditions to find unique decorations in Chinatown and local Chinese grocery stores. They settled on the bold color scheme of purple, red, and gold, and had a blast finding everything in those colors.
We had some decorations already from our China trip in 2006 and also got festive accents from San Francisco’s Chinatown like purple dragon puppets, a huge wall fan, red silk table runners, mini teacups, and red and purple parasols.
Such a fun, fun party -- it ended up being bright, bold, and zany, just like Ro and Ree!
Thank you to our ace party crew: decorating committee Ma and Pa, laddermen TubaDad and Clark, chocolate whisperer Kristina, right-hand-woman Maggie – you guys helped put together a wonderful party for our little babes. The house looks so bright and festive that we don’t want to ever take the decorations down.
