CELEBRATING BABY’S FIRST MILESTONE SHANGRI-LA HOTEL NINGBO HOSTS ITS FIRST EVER BABY FULL-MOON SHOW

 

Chinese custom, when a baby turns one month old, a ceremony is held to celebrate his/her first full month of life in which the Chinese term translates as “full moon”. And the full moon celebration was a joyous occasion to officially show off mother and baby to the world at large and mark the beginning of the child’s life in the community. Moreover, parenting is the most important and difficult job for which people will ever apply. It is a process of promoting and supporting the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development of a child from infancy to adulthood.  Shangri-la Hotel Ningbo together with Mr. Party, Think Share and GDT Filming themed the first baby show as Welcome Baby to encourage guests to consider who they will raise their children to become and also presented the venues, ideas as well as professionalism that Shangri-La can take care of guests’ every need and bring their angels an unforgettable moment in each milestone of their life journey. 

 

A wonderful and imaginative sensory celebration had been all set for both the parents and their families in the eight-meter-tall enchanting grand ballroom. Thanks to the professional event partner Mr. Party, the staircase at the lobby was adorned beautifully with touches of blue and pink balloons, as well as a candy table filled with customized sweet treats for the guests. Once stepped into the foyer at the second level, guests were very much surprised by a “Time Tunnel” with numerous balloons fallen from an exquisite gift box and filled the whole aisle. And the extensive and lavish setups inside of the ballroom featured a marvellous central carousel, a huge angel wings backdrop and fairytale hot balloon, which transformed the grand ballroom into a breathtaking and celebratory wonderland. 

 

The baby show was started by asking each parent-to-be to write down their wishes to their upcoming babies on a post card, then hung the card by themselves on the wall of the Time Tunnel. All the cards will be delivered to their babies by a “snail mail” when they are born for wishing them happily-ever-after. Experienced hosting team Think Share kept guests entertained with warm and sweet stories throughout the show. Three meaningful videos produced by GDT filming respectively presented mother’s unconditional love for her child, a green hand father dealing with his new born baby as well as a fun-filled street interview regarding the topic of what you parents told you where you were from. As for the highlights of the show, Think Share led guests to experience symbolic rituals that would be carried out to ensure children’s good health, happiness and success in life. Some of these traditions have been passed down through the years and continue to be observed today such as Grabbing Test, Passing the Seven Bridge. 

 

Aside from the opportunity to experience hilarious performances, guests were also invited to the SKYLINE Rooftop Bar located at 35th–floor of the hotel after the show. With its panoramic three river confluence view as the backdrop, this is the picture-perfect spot to hold any lifetime celebrations. Besides, celebrate the newest addition to the family, Shangri-La Hotel Ningbo has launched a selection of enchanting packages. Whether guests dream of their wonderful baby full moon ceremony as a traditional Chinese banquet in the luxurious surrounds of a ballroom or an intimate party at SKYLINE Rooftop Bar or at hideaway garden in the heart of the city, Shangri-La’s talented Catering Specialist is ready to make their special occasion uniquely theirs with the customized menus and impeccable services.
