This past summer, my husband and I were invited to a Red Egg & Ginger Party to celebrate the arrival of our friends' new son, Griffin. Of course, I'm always down for a good theme, but I was at a loss at what to expect at a Red Egg & Ginger Party... none the less what to bring as a gift.
After a quick Google search, I learned a little more. "In Chinese culture, a baby's first month birthday calls for a celebration. Proud parents introduce their latest addition to friends and relatives by holding a red egg and ginger party" (according to About.com).
I also learned that you either bring a gift featuring a tiger to watch over the child or money in a red envelope to serve as "lucky money." I ended up finding the cutest little baby booties featuring a tiger.
The lavish celebration was held at the Oriental Wok on Buttermilk and did not disappoint. From the menu selection to the decor elements, this was one memorable event.
The monogrammed eggs at each place setting were absolutely adorable! They were filled with ginger candy, which was actually quite good.
Griffin is one precious baby. I'm talking model-qualty!
Adam and Melissa must be so proud.
We had a fabulous time! A special thanks to Melissa for allowing me to share an inside look at this special celebration.
