Labor Day is celebrated on the first Monday of September, which means: just a couple of days from today! It is celebrated to honor the contributions workers have made to the US, bringing strength and prosperity to the country. But you already know that, right? Let’s get to the part you’re here to see: the Labor Day party ideas! Because after all, all workers deserve a break, don’t they?
“Without labor nothing prospers.” - Sophocles
If you have a chalkboard anywhere in your home, use it! Even if it’s being used to decorate someplace else, you’ll only take it from its place for a day. You can write down “USA”, or a beautiful Labor Day quote, or even just draw some stars. Make it festive!
Plates & Napkins
Maybe you still have some decorations left from your 4th of July celebration and this will be the perfect time to use them! In case you don’t, you can run to the store and get a couple of simple things, like:
- Red plates
- Blue napkins
- Plastic cups and straws (in red, white and blue)
Whichever ones you pick, they will all work just fine for your Labor Day BBQ celebration.
Now, let’s talk about the food:
Even if you’re serving lunch or dinner, all parties still need finger food so the guests can have a taste of what they’re about to experience. These mini ham and cheese biscuit stacks will make a perfect self-serve snack for your guests - and they’re delicious!
Don’t know about you, but for me, it really doesn’t feel like a celebration party unless there are hot dogs to eat! Of course, sometimes we can get a bit sick of eating the same thing many times in a row, so if you’re not willing to make regular hot dogs for yet another party, here’s the option for you:
Since you’re serving chili hot dogs, you’ll need quite a refreshing drink to serve along. There’s no need to go searching: this strawberry + pineapple mojito is your go-to cocktail! It tastes heavenly and it can be made non-alcoholic for the kids at the party as well.
Also in the finger food idea system, these fruit skewers make a perfect snack to grab and eat. You can even serve them with a yogurt dip and you’ll have a dessert that combines it all:
Could it be any more perfect? I don’t think so!
If you want something a bit sweeter, a brownie pizza dessert may be more on your aisle. It’s the sweet and healthy combo we love to have. Also, a good way to make the kids eat some fruits instead of just the chocolate!
