Labor Day at Home

Labor Day at Home

The surefire way to a disastrous at-home Labor Day celebration? Not planning ahead (or queueing up a playlist!)

Preparation IS key, so if you’re always playing catch as party host, use these tips for before, during, and after your Labor Day celebration - You'll be sure to create a memorable day that bids farewell to the summer season.

Before guests arrive: Beat the last of the summer heat by setting up shaded areas and plenty of seating for your guests to relax. Deck out your outdoor space with umbrellas, canopies, or tailgating tents to create ample shade.

Prep appetizers and finger foods. In the day leading up to your party, prep appetizers, and finger foods. This way, when guests arrive and await the main meal, they have something to hold them over! Think cool fruit kabobs, classic dips, and salty snacks.

Pro tip: Grab some to-go containers at the store to send your guests home with leftovers later!

Spruce up your outdoor dining area with color, charm, and a great playlist. Elevate the atmosphere with vibrant tablecloths, paper lanterns, and plenty of string lights to illuminate the night. Create a playlist or use one of my Spotify favorites: Feel Good Summer or Summer Hits of the 90s

During the fiesta: As guests arrive, fire up the grill and get the party started! Opt for a classic menu that's flavorful and manageable, allowing you to enjoy the party yourself while serving up food fresh off the grill.

Be prepared with insect repellent, citronella candles, or the “Bug Bite Thing” (have you seen it?) to keep bugs at bay. 

No one likes forced fun, but dotting your backyard corn hole, Tipsy Toss, or refillable water balloons will have your competitive guests right at home.

When it’s all said and done: Keep clean up a cinch with disposable or compostable plates, napkins, cups, and utensils.

Pull out those to-go containers and send guests home with a plate of leftovers (if there are any!).
