Labor Day Party
Labor Day is a holiday for the working American.
It is the country's way of recognizing how important your average American is when it comes to the economy and to providing the things that make this country so great. Most people get the day off and celebrate it with cook outs and gatherings with friends and family. It also is the unofficial end to summer, so that means having one last, big outdoor celebration before heading into the fall.
It's perfect weather for a bonfire or a cook out, so get outside and fire up your grill or light that fire. You can spruce up your outdoor space with traditional red, white and blue décor. Try some patriotic designs on tablecloths and balloons to set the stage. Hang a few paper lanterns in blue or red chevron to add a bit of light now that the days are getting shorter. Stream up some red polka dotted crepe paper and put out the patriotic pop up trash bin to finish off your party space.
Since eating is a huge part of this holiday, you need some table settings that go along with your décor. Keep it simple with solid colored red, blue or white plates, napkins, silverware and cups or go for a patriotic design featuring of flags, stars and fireworks. Everyone will love this extra step as they chow down on grilled hot dogs, juicy hamburgers, potato salad, coleslaw and desserts made from the last of summer's fresh fruits.
