For her Star Wars-obsessed son Brody’s fifth birthday party, Vanessa wanted to give him a party worthy of a Jedi Master. From Jedi training to a visit from Darth Vader, this party pretty much had it all! Instead of going for the typical black and green Star Wars colors, Vanessa opted for a brighter color palette of red and turquoise with touches of black and white. Click through the slideshow below to see how she pulled everything together.
