Kinsley’s Japanese Kokeshi Doll Themed Party – 1st Birthday

Konichiwa! I’m thrilled to share with you this adorable Japanese Kokeshi doll themed party. Special thanks to Intan Hermanus of Dreamflavours Celebrations for sharing with me Kinsley’s party all the way from Jakarta Utara, Indonesia.

Kokeshi dolls originated from Northern Japan. The traditional dolls are handmade from wood, they have overly large heads and don’t have arms & legs. Their bodies are painted with flowers in red, black and sometimes yellow. Read more about the theme here.

For Kinsley’s party, they chose this cute theme because of the resemblance between the doll’s facial feature with Kinsley and the family loves Japanese details.

I love how they made cherry blossom trees out of balloons!

Some of the traditional Japanese elements used in their centerpieces include origami cranes, paper kokeshi dolls, floral fans and small umbrellas. Even the chopstick paper covers are floral as well.

  1. Besides the fact that it’s a rather original party idea i must say it really fills me with happiness seeing all that cute miniature world. Are the future themed birthday parties going to grow in size just like your kid will get taller and taller?

  2. I love the art of this party i remember when my mommy bake a cap cake for my causin and i’m the who make a small greetings flag on the top 🙂
