We’re in the final weeks of summer, but there’s still a lot of celebrate at Abberly at Southpoint! As summer comes to a close, Labor Day offers the perfect opportunity to celebrate the end of the season. If you’re searching for ideas to gather for friends over the long Labor Day weekend, check out our top Labor Day party tips:
Timing: Summer cookouts and parties are typically later afternoon or evening affairs, but for your Labor Day party, why not switch it up a bit. InStyle recommends hosting a Labor Day brunch to start the festivities earlier. You could have lighter fare and roll into a relaxing afternoon at the pool.
What to Eat: Food is often the center of most parties. Fresh, seasonal dishes can really take a party to the next level. We love an idea from Chowhound to create food and beverage stations. No need to pre-set a table or keep all the food in one place. Spread food and drinks around to encourage guest to mingle. This approach also allows guests to nibble at their own pace.
How to Decorate: Summer offers so many seasonal décor possibilities and you can add even more with a red, white, and blue Labor Day theme! Marth Stewart has a ton of great decorating ideas for your end of summer celebration. We especially love the seersucker napkins. Plus, don’t forget to weigh down your tablecloth if you’re celebrating outside!
We believe it’s how you live that matters! Making fond memories with loved ones, friends, and neighbors is a great way to celebrate the end of summer. If you have your own party tips to share, head over to our Facebook page.
