Well everyone this Monday is always bitter sweet! Of course it is always nice to have a day off to spend extra time with friends and loved ones, but Labor Day also symbolizes the end of summer. That means our days of frolicking in the sun by the beach are counting down. Let’s all make the most out of these final glory days of summer by having a smashing Labor Day party to remind us what summer is all about.
Since Labor Day is an American made holiday, patriotic décor and accents would be very festive. Pull out the red, white, and blue and get the party started!
We just love these American Summer Fans and there are so many things that you could do with them to make your party pop. Whether you hang them from your front porch to welcome guests like the pictures or use them as photo booth backdrops, they will certainly bring a bright and fun element to your party on Monday.
Perhaps you are feeling crafty, you can go ahead and DIY your own paper fans for any occasion. Head over to the Pinning Mama and get the full tutorial so you can make these for your Labor Day fun! One thing Photo Booth of the Stars loves about the DIY, is that by using wrapping paper and coordinating 12×12 scrapbook paper you can make carrying sizes for the fans which is so visually appealing, especially in your photo booth rental.
Mason jars are still as popular as ever for weddings, parties, and all celebrations. Using a galvanized tub, or any container filled with ice to place mason jars full of your delicious beverages will keep your event right on trend. It will also keep the drinks nice and cool as well as allow you to enjoy spending time with your guests rather than mixing up cocktails and playing bartender to your guests.
Star Spangled Sangria would be the perfect signature cocktail for you to make ahead of time, and pour in the mason jars. The star shaped pineapple and brightly colored fruits floating around in the drink would look so festive on ice and ready for your guests to have a cold and refreshing beverage at their leisure. Labor Day is supposed to be a day of resting from work after all!
Get the recipe for the sangria from Simply Swider HERE.
No celebration would be complete without some Party Printables and we found some really adorable ones that you are going to love over on Hostess With the Mostess. Head on over and print out their drink flags, cupcake toppers/party circles, and a couple of decorative signs which are fabulous. Get yours HERE.
No matter what you decide to do to celebrate Labor Day, make the most out of having an extra day to spend with the ones you love and enjoy it.
