Kimmi Junior Dolls are very adorable Japanese kokeshi dolls collection. They are super cute and charming, exactly what Singapore-based mom Aileen Brigole-Abadilla had in mind for her youngest daughter, Jillianne Christalle’s 1st birthday bash. The Grand Men Seng Hotel gorgeously turned into a Kimmitown fantasy land themed venue.
“I wanted to utilize a very unique theme with elements that were never seen before in other kiddie birthday parties. I pictured the party to be something colorful and girlie, just like Jill. At the same time, I wanted a touch of sophistication, which was new yet still kid-appropriate. This is why the Kimmi Junior dolls would be the perfect theme”, said Aileen.
Pompoms, lanterns and parasols adorned the gazebo at the entrance. Guest table centerpieces were towering balloon pillars with mylar, pompoms with parasols and high-flying balloons.
There were plenty of sweets for everyone! Take a look at their Japanese-inspired dessert buffet and cookie station where kids can decorate their own butterfly, heart and flower cookies with sprinkles, icing and mini candies.
The birthday cake was a 3-tier heart-shaped fondant in fuchsia and turquoise with a Kimmi Junior doll topper. Surrounding it were lady bugs, bees, butterflies, flowers and rainbows. Each of the cupcakes have elements found in the dolls’ kimonos. The Kimmi Junior dolls that elegantly highlighted the cupcake tower are actually Mommy Aileen’s personal collection.
Kids were able to bring home these Kimmi Junior treat bags with keychains.
