When your dad is event planner Troy of Simply Troy you know it's going to be an amazing party! His son's love of Kuba inspired Troy to design a Ninja and Japanese themed party for his fifth birthday. And he delivered big! Complete with ninjas, candy artists, a stilt walker, and more – all surrounded by amazing backdrops – Finnley and guests had the time of their lives! Thank you to photographer Phillip Van Nostrand for helping to capture and submitting this action-packed event. (Please look for the complete list of participating vendors after the photos.)

Inspired by the lovely pink bird the mom-to-be admired on her vacation, LTJ Events and Designs put together a baby shower they knew she would think was fun and elegant. Varying tones of pink were combined with tropical banana leaf prints and floral centerpieces for the tables. Amid the festive decor, guests enjoyed mini pancakes, fruit, macarons and mimosas. A beautiful floral hoop created the perfect setting for a photo booth. Guests left with a yummy custom monogrammed cookie. Thanks to Georgia's Emily Richardson Photography for capturing the event for us to enjoy.

This is one of those parties I always think about having with my girlfriends! For this birthday girl, it was all about bringing back the fun memories of being a young girl, but bringing in the sophistication of being an adult. With the help of event designer, Opal & Ivory Events, they put something together that is very fun and glam! Girlfriends were greeted by handmade watercolor signs, given a sparkly crown to wear--and even cute polka-dotted socks. Wouldn't you just love to dive into that pile of pillows?! All the fun was captured and submitted by North Hollywood's vonMedicus Photography. Enjoy!

Relatives from all over the world came to celebrate this little girl's 1 year birthday! The Little Mermaid was the perfect theme to commemorate the event. As Katie Messer of Salute Life Photography explained, when a little girl turns one "it's almost like staring into the ocean, not knowing what is around the next wave." Looks like this is just the beginning of many fun memories to be made.

Whimsical meets fairytale elegance with a sprinkle of madness in this styled shoot submitted by Ontario, Canada photographer Audrey Mills.  As you peruse the amazing picturesque details put together by White Rabbit Events, you'll notice the efforts made to incorporate something old, something new, and something blue into the decor. There is so much to revel in and be inspired by in this tea party that would even make the Mad Hatter proud! The myriad of vintage tea cups, books and candles playfully strewn across the table, the themed cookies on each plate setting; the vintage furniture I wish I owned, and so much more!
