Best Kids Parties: Construction Vehicles

My Party: Graham (Napa, CA)

This party didn't work out the way Lindsay had planned, but we're guessing Graham had a grand time anyway. She shares: The party that wasn't. Poor G, with rain in the forecast and a heap of outdoor activities and tons o' toddlers on the invite list we postponed the celebration but had extended family over for pumpkin curry and of course, cake!

Loosely based on "Goodnight, Goodnight Construction site" G's love of all things truck set the tone for the orange, yellow and pale blue party that turned into a pj dinner. Recycled crayons shaped like tractors and trucks, sugar cookies designed the same and a fondant cake to melt for.

Thanks Lindsay! Readers, say hi on Time & Materials.
