The summer is the perfect time to throw a party. With beautiful weather and high spirits, guests are more than happy to attend the numerous cookouts, barbeques, and poolside celebrations that occur at this time of year.
Of course, throwing a party is always easier said than done. The summer months always seem to pass by very quickly. If you’ve let the whole summer go without throwing your own cookout, then Labor Day is your last chance to do so.
If you’re looking for a Labor Day party idea, throw a “strawberry splash” Labor Day party. This theme is both timely and original. For a few suggestions about how to throw this party, take a look at the Labor Day ideas below:
- Invitations: Use cute, themed invitations to send to your guests. Online invitations are always a simple favorite. Use them to quickly get the word out about your party and to keep track of guests’ responses. You can send online invitations with east! Not to mention, they are environmentally friendly. Browse through beautiful Labor Day invitations.
- Food: Each dish should be filled with strawberries, of course! Strawberries work amazingly well in all sorts of party dishes, from appetizers to dinner to dessert. Begin with a strawberry and avocado spinach salad, then serve a grilled fish of your choice with a puréed strawberry sauce poured over the top. For dessert, take your pick of any party favorite from strawberry shortcake to strawberry pizza (served on a cookie crust instead of the regular pizza crust) to stuffed strawberries.
- Drinks: Take your pick of any fruity favorite and just add strawberries! For the kids, serve strawberry smoothies, strawberry juice, and strawberry milk. As for the adults, opt for frozen strawberry margaritas or mojitos muddled with strawberries. The combination of strawberry and mint is delicious!
- Activities: play outdoor games to enjoy the good weather before it ends. Ask guests to bring their sneakers to play games of pick up soccer and flag football. These games will make fun ways to enjoy the last few days of summer. For a “strawberry” twist, use a red ball or make red jerseys for guests to use.
These are just a few Labor day party ideas. However you celebrate Labor Day this year, remember to relax and enjoy the end of this lovely season.
