The carousel is such an icon of our childhood--and I love that this birthday celebration commemorates that. With the Brooklyn Bridge as a backdrop, this was such a sweet birthday party for little Jackson. The table featured whimsical sweets and there were carousel horses painted on the balloons. Thank you to PhotoStory Collections for sharing this day with us.

Ah, flamingos never looked so chic! This new mama and south Florida girl loves sunshine, Lily Pulitzer and anything bright and fun. Taking that all into account, a tropical theme "Pineapple of my Eye" was set to celebrate the baby's arrival. Some of my favorite details are the thumbprint guest book, wicker flamingo and of course, the champagne bar! A cheerful thank you to Florida photographer, Krystal Zaskey Photography, for sharing the bright details with us.

This bridal shower taken and submitted by Illinois' Ashley Hamm Photography brings together many of my favorite things: nail polish, sparkle and sweets! I love the cupcake dress and the shimmery gold table covering. I'm sure Sandy was one happy bride-to-be!

Sorry for the unannounced silence around here! I was on vacation for about 3 weeks. We went to NY to visit family and then on a family cruise to celebrate my parents 50th anniversary. It was so fun and honestly, it felt great to be disconnected for a while. We literally just got back yesterday and now we need to get in school preparation mode. My kids here in Colorado start Monday the 22nd, so this adorable shoot from mom photographer Maria Fasih in Virginia seemed so timely. Her twins recently turned five and will be starting kindergarten this fall. Such a bittersweet time for parents. It's a big milestone and a little touch of reality that your kids are growing up. However you choose to do it, make sure to capture these times - they come and go very quickly! You can check out more of Maria's photography by following her on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and/or Instagram.

Black and gold shapes transformed this otherwise simple baby shower into an elegant celebration for this mom-to-be. Designer and planner Jen Leslie of Seattle's Jen Leslie Events explained, "I came up with the idea of creating my own tablecloth by cutting out gold and black triangles. I didn't have a specific pattern in mind, just knew I wanted it to look geometric, so I placed them where I thought they looked good. I wanted to ensure there were a few 'baby' elements to my design so that it reflected the occasion we were celebrating. I painted wood blocks with gold paint in alternating patterns. These will be really cute in the baby's room...Overall it was such a fun night catching up with friends and celebrating the mom-to-be." And a special thank you to Kelly Lemon Photography for submitting the photos.
