Alison proves that inspiration can strike anytime and anywhere; in her case at the hardware store: Our son Finn just turned 2 in July and to celebrate we thought we'd throw him a backyard BBQ bash.

Our inspiration came from the local hardware store, every time we stopped by to pick up a random something for our house Finn would be mesmerized with a little red wagon in the back of the store. This "wagon-love" was destined to be the theme and centerpiece at his second b-day bash.

The decorations included crepe paper balls, handmade paper pinwheels, balloons, a felt birthday banner, red velvet cupcakes, handmade gocco invitations, and of course the red wagon cookies prepared special for Finn by his loving mom.

As always, every great recipe can be found on Epicurious. The recipe for the sugar cookies and tips on how to prepare royal icing came from a post at Prudent Baby.

Thanks Alison! See more of Finn's terrific party at Deucecities Henhouse.

We love a good party! We just put together a new "My Party" Submission Form. If you'd like to share the good ideas and photos from your child's celebration with the Ohdeedoh community please submit through the form found right here.
