This mama loves her fur baby so much, she threw her a party for turning 6 months old! Custom beer koozies and treats wrapped in paw-print wrapping paper were just a couple of the special touches made for the occasion. Thanks to this pet owner and North Carolina photographer, Lacy Matusek, for sharing the special day!

Yes–tires! You read that right. Colored tires beautifully provide an unexpected complement to the venue's wooden setting and accents. I also love the bar which reminds me of a pop-up camper. The florals bring the whole look together, making it soft and romantic. Big thanks to San Diego photographer, Willmus Weddings, for capturing the shoot and sharing it with us. And be sure to check out everyone listed below who made up the creative team that put this all together.

This little boy turned one in February. Mom took advantage of their local library to throw a party there, complete with an entertaining puppet show. (I wonder if our library hosts parties?!) When mom was asked why she wanted a photographer to capture the event, she said, "The first-year milestone represents more than just a celebration...(but) the village it takes to bring up a child. A range of emotions are experienced in a child's first year; the deepest joy, sadness, fear, anxiety, and triumph. Through this emotional journey, you become the parent your child needs along the way. Why not celebrate?" I could not agree more! Thank you to Washington photographer, Lavender Bouquet, for capturing and submitting the colorful details.

Don't you wish you could be a child again? Everything seemed so magical and there seemed to be a very fine line between imagination and reality. Alberta photographer, Tammy Deren of Smiley Eyes Photography, styled what might at first seem like an Easter tea party for two special girls, but as you look around at all the details you'll discover some magic. There's Peter Rabbit stopping by to say hello with gifts.  A sprite singing a song with her pet owl. White balloons that become clouds, and more.

For those of you celebrating, I wish you a very magical Easter!

Do you have your Easter plans set yet? I'm sure most of you are getting together with family or friends. Before you head on over to the big gathering, why not indulge in some quality time with a significant other in the morning. If it'll only be the two of you–even better–you can snuggle and just enjoy the whole day together! I love this sweet table designed and photographed by Connecticut's Kristina Staal. The Easter touches are subtle to keep everything elegant, while still being festive.
