You are going to fall in love with little Malia in this fun and colorful first birthday smash cake session. What I especially love is when photographer Simply Sweet Snapshots took her outside in her fabulous tulle dress for some photos.  This is a great idea for right now to capture the colored leaves and rustic surroundings.  Enjoy the cheerful photos!

This crafty bride helped transform the great outdoors into a special and intimate setting for her wedding day. The rustic elements were the perfect complement to the surroundings. The games and relaxed atmosphere made it a great time for everyone. I especially love the paper fan backdrop and the vintage inspired fabrics used throughout the decor. Thanks so much to Michigan's Dan and Melissa Photography for sharing the amazing details!

As much as I love a themed party at home, how can you beat a birthday in the happiest place on Earth?! This little lucky boy got to spend his 4th birthday at Disney World with, not just one, but all his favorite Disney characters. What a treat to go on an adventure with Donald Duck, pose with the characters from Cars, Watch Nemo come to life and so much more! Take inspiration from the colors, the wall of drawings, the Mickey desserts and favor treats for your own party ideas.  A big Disney thanks to mom and photographer, Gage Blake Photography in Ohio for sharing the special trip.

I'm sure you have plenty of plastic Easter eggs bagged away in your holiday bins.  Here's a great reason to pull them out and re-use them as favors or a special treat for kids. They would even be fun to use as part of a scavenger hunt.  Find the full tutorial, plus other fall crafts, at Better Homes & Gardens here
