If you are planning for Labor Day, take a look at these suggestions:
Food: Make sure to buy the food for your labor day party far in advance. There will be many Labor Day parties around this time, and they will mostly be cookouts. Therefore, classic cookout fare such as hamburgers, hotdogs, etc. will all be in high demand and are likely sell out quickly. You will have to get to stores first in order to beat the rush of people who will be buying these items.
Fun Idea: Add excitement to your Labor Day party with a margarita bar so guests can enjoy some delicious drinks before outside before the summer is over! One idea is to hire bartenders to create and manage the margarita bar during the cookout. This way, you won’t have to worry about refilling materials, helping people work the blenders, etc. while you try to cook, talk to guests, and have fun.
Decorations: Make sure to get your Labor Day decorations far ahead of time, as party stores will sell out of these quickly. You don’t need a lot—just basic items for your yard. Things like table cloths, balloons, and flowers are festive ideas. You can even pick a summery color to “theme” your decorations. Don’t forget the paper cups and plates!
Activities: Depending on the theme of your party, appropriate Labor Day activities will differ. However, a good idea is to get the materials for these activities before your party. For a cookout, you should tell guests to bring their bathing suits and be ready to make a splash! Plan activities such as a sprinkler obstacle course, a Slip N’ Slide, and a water balloon tournament to enjoy the last few days of the summer weather.
These are only a few ideas to get you started on your Labor Day planning. Just remember to beat the crowd and get all of your party supplies and food ahead of time!
