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.

Once they got to the party, each kiddo was given a Jedi robe—a hint at what was to come later in the afternoon.
