Piper’s First Birthday

For my daughter's first birthday, we wanted a gathering that would be memorable for the family. I look back on the photos of my first birthday fondly, and wanted the same for Piper. I feel very lucky that my Grandma (Grams) and Grandpa (Gramps) are still with us and wanted special memories of everyone together at their home in Victoria. I grew up going to their house, putting on old dresses and having fun with my Grandma. It's a special place for me and it was wonderful to host Piper's first birthday there.

    Those teacups are gorgeous! it’s so nice to have a collection of very beautifully designed porcelain teacups like these.
