It’s hard to believe that Labor Day is right around the corner and the unofficial end of summer is fast approaching. Don’t worry, though, there’s still a lot to celebrate! At Abberly Avera, we believe it’s how you live that matters and always love to throw a party. So, let’s plan one more great summer gathering and offer a toast to fun in the sun!
Check out our top tips to make your Labor Day party memorable:
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.
Plan Your Menu: Food is a big part of any gathering and summer offers so much fresh and tasty treats. When planning your Labor Day party, we love the menu inspiration from Punchbowl. They key is to keep it simple, seasonal, and light. This end of summer party is all about spending time with friends and neighbors.
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.
