How to Throw a Memorable Labor Day Party
Labor Day is right around the corner, and that means that it's party time! This holiday signifies the end of summer to many people, so you'll want to make the most of the last of the warm weather with a big blowout bash that your friends and family will love. Here's what you need to know to do it right!
Set Up Yard Games
You'll need to have some form of entertainment to keep your guests occupied, and yard games have become incredibly popular in recent years. Things like cornhole, giant Jenga and croquet give your guests something to do in between eating and chatting with other guests. The competitive spirit that arises keeps the atmosphere fun and exciting. If you really want to take it up a notch, organize a tournament and give out prizes to the winners. Try to choose games that all of your guests, even children, will be able to play.
Lay Out Plenty of Food
Food is an essential component of any party, so be sure that you have more than enough to feed all of your guests. Because the weather is nice, you'll likely want to barbecue. While the popular favorites, hamburgers and hot dogs, are great, you can make your event truly memorable by switching it up a bit. Try making some kabobs or grilling shrimp and corn-on-the-cob. If you will be spending most of your time outside, be sure to invest in covers for your dishes to keep the bugs away. No one wants their burger with a side of fly!
Create Space for Mingling
Make sure that your party environment is conducive to mingling so that your guests have ample opportunities to interact. Arrange patio furniture in clusters to encourage conversation. Keep the furniture in a separate area from the food so that the serving area is easily accessible without having to step around those who are sitting. Don't forget to provide some form of shade near the seating areas, especially if it is hot outside. A few strategically placed patio umbrellas or canopies will do the trick. You don't want any of your guests getting sunburnt.
