We love summer and can’t believe it’s coming to an end so soon! Not to worry, there is still plenty of time to celebrate over the Labor Day weekend. At HHHunt, we believe it’s how you live that matters and love a fun reason to bring people together to create lasting memories. If you’re ready to start planning a fabulous end of summer celebration, check out these hosting tips:
The Time: The ideal time for a summer cookout or party is later in the day or at night when the temperatures cool off. Hosting at night also gives you tons of fun ways to make the evening special! Chowhound recommends scattering blankets and using candles and tiki lights to set the mood. Make it a full-blown evening soiree by offering sparklers to your guests!
The Food: Food is a big part of any gathering, and luckily the summer offers many fresh and tasty options. When planning your Labor Day party menu, the key is to keep it seasonal and easy. Delish has nearly 50 recipes that are perfect for all ages and incorporate grilling and summer produce. There are even make-ahead recipes, so you spend less time in the kitchen and more time with friends and loved ones!
The Decor: To really wow your guests, consider including fun decorations that celebrate both summer and Labor Day. Martha Stewart has several ways to pay tribute to the season and holiday with striped sand candles, star-topped s’more sticks, and pom-pom napkin rings.
We hope these tips encourage you to host an incredible end of summer party on Labor Day! If you have your own party tips, feel free to share them on our Facebook page.
