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.
My Grandma's vintage tea cups...
For this party... it was frilly, pretty, light and airy.
Cake - Homemade angel food (a family tradition)
Pastries - The Dutch Bakery (the owners are close friends of the family)
Tea - David's Tea (Forever Nuts, Organic Cream of Earl Grey, Oh Canada)
Grandma's tea cups... and Piper (of course!)
