End-of-Summer Labor Day Party Ideas
Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer. The local pool closes, school starts again and your family is ready for the fall! Celebrate Labor Day with a special end-of-summer backyard bash. Check out these easy ideas for family-friendly recipes, decor and more.
Labor Day Party Recipes
Keep your family and end-of-summer party guests happy and full with a buffet of goodies. Get the grill going and barbecue burgers. Let the kids help you to pick out toppings, such as veggies, cheese and condiments. Add in grilled eggplant, zucchini or other vegetables for vegetarian family members and guests. Your kids can also help you to make summer salads that are filled with fresh greens and fruit.
Labor Day Party Decor
The kids can craft holiday decor for your Labor Day end-of-summer party. Use butcher paper or a roll of plain gift wrap to make a summer-time mural. Give your children paints, pencils, crayons or markers and help them to brainstorm summer-themed designs. Hang the mural on a fence, the exterior of your home or a buffet table.
Labor Day Party Menus
Create a keepsake that doubles as a party menu for this holiday bash. Start with 8×10-inch pieces of card stock paper. Your children can draw pictures of each menu item, write the names of the foods and add a special Labor Day message. Include the date and each family member’s name.
