According to Asian Chinese custom, when a baby turns one month old, a ceremony is held to celebrate her first month of life (the Chinese term translates as "full moon"). 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 the first time. Full moon parties today are often celebrated in many ways; either in restaurant or at home with a buffet spread for guests, to smaller family-only get-togethers. Parents normally host the celebration at home if they have the space, or book and rent a venue (hotel or large restaurant) to accommodate everyone.
For this order, my customer ordered a small fullmoon themed cake, designed were leave to me and I suggested this theme. As the party was an intimate one, only closest friends and relatives, each guests were given a 'thank you gift' and I suggested to have the cupcakes to be presented into a real cup instead of the normal cupcake liners. I had lots of fun doing this order as I get to be creative doing all the different design! Time consuming? YES!! But totally worth it!! *GRIN* :P
