Verity's Red Egg Ginger Party
Jerry & Rosanna invites families and friends to meet their newest family member Verity to the world!
A red egg & ginger party is traditional Chinese celebration of a baby's first month birthday. The event celebrates the baby's first time meeting other families and friends to the world where guest will bring gifts and "Lai-See" (Lucky Money). The guests don't leave empty handed, either. The parents will hand out red-dyed eggs, symbolizing happiness and the renewal of life. Ginger is also important because in the yin (cold) and yang (warm) balance of Chinese food, ginger adds a touch of 'hotness' to the nutritional needs of the new mother, who is tired and weak (or too yin) after giving birth. In addition to red eggs, the parents, Jerry and Rosanna also had these delicious red-gold velvet cupcakes for guest to take home. Yummmm~
