Five Fun Ideas for the Best Labor Day Party in Your New Home

August 22, 2017

Where did summer go?! Celebrate the final days of summer with the best Labor Day party (dare we say ever?) Bring family and friends together for an unforgettable end to our favorite season.

Pick a Theme

Labor Day is a patriotic holiday that celebrates American achievement. Choosing a theme adds a cohesive element to your Labor Day party.

  • All American
    An All-American theme incorporates red, white, and blue in everything you do!
  • White Out
    Ask guests to commit a fashion faux pas and wear white to your celebration.
  • Build Your Own
    Put a spin on “Labor” Day and put guests to work with a build-you-own food station. Burgers, hot dogs, tacos, and cocktails are all great options!

Make a Mouth Watering Menu

Plan your food around your theme of choice. Offer a variety of sips and snacks for guests to munch on before lunch (or dinner) is served. We love Delish for the best appetizers, entrees, drinks, and desserts! Don’t be afraid to try something new! Your guests are sure to love your festive feast.

Live Larger

Make your party larger than life with life size yard games – Jenga, Chess, Connect Four, or Yahtzee! Bonus Points: DIY your favorite life size yard game. A number of easy-to-follow tutorials are available on Pinterest.

Make It a Movie Night

Enjoy a night under the Nashville stars with an outdoor movie night! Set up a projector, a fun concession stand filled with popcorn and movie snacks, and you’re ready to go. What to Watch: The Proposal, Horrible Bosses, Employee of the Month, or The Office (TV Series).

Create a Memory

Create a memorable night for guests. Set out a Polaroid camera for use throughout the night. Hang the photos on a line to decorate the night, and ask guests to grab their photos on the way out.

How will you be celebrating this Labor Day?
