When planning our granddaughter’s first birthday party my daughter-in-law wanted it to be very special.  It was their first child and they were very excited to celebrate this milestone.

We had bought an antique high chair at a cute store in Kimmswick, MO before our granddaughter was born.  Our son painted the high chair white for this special occasion and it turned out very pretty.
