Full Moon & Baby Welcome Party celebration

Baby Welcome & Full Moon Party

Theme: Full Moon
Venue: Show.case Kelana Jaya
Date: 2 Feb 2015
Package: Super Basic Party (curtain backdrop, poster on tripod, minimal table props & 30's helium balloons)

As we learnt from Chinese traditions, as the baby turns one month old, a ceremony is held to celebrate her first full month of life. Make sense to us, considering that during the early days right after delivery, the baby is still to fragile to be exposed or receive a lot of visitors.

This coincides with the end of the new mum's confinement period, and both mother and baby are formally introduced to the extended family and friends. For many of them, this will be the first time they are meeting the new baby.

Before the party, some parents do significant ceremony like trimming the eyelashes or trimming/cutting the baby hair so the baby will look good. Others choose to give voucher or "red egg" for those people who give your present as a thank you gesture.

Other than the Chinese, the Baby Welcome or Full Moon party is also celebrated by the Malays and Indian community, accordingly to their traditions and beliefs.

This was party was booked around Chinese New Year month, it was a good time for them to introduce their babies to all relatives and friends who are still around for the CNY holidays.

Thank you for having us!
