The table is set with plates of fruit and rice cakes, symbolising plenty and purity and other good things. But the most important objects are those which symbolise her path in life: yarn, and noodles, for long life; books representing academic achievement and learning; brushes for a life of creativity and writing; and money, symbolising, well, money.
