Labor Day is a federal holiday that honors working people. It’s the weekend that families and friends get together and have picnics with traditional Labor Day meals! Grilled hot dogs, hamburgers, and the best corn that summer provides! In honor of Labor Day, I wanted to do a blog saluting all of you and giving a few tips on how to throw a fabulous Labor Day picnic/party!
For a list of notable food ideas, click on the topic and you will be taken to a slew of terrific recipes from BHG.com – enjoy!
Red, white and blue is a traditional color scheme for Labor Day and one that is extremely easy to find! Here are a few ideas:
I love seersucker, don’t you? It reminds me of summer – light and flowing. Here is a sweet idea from MarthaStewart.com where you can make your own and because of the nature of the fabric you don’t have to worry about ironing! Love that! Pick out a nice red or blue stripe that matches your table covering. Click here to view the instructions.
This idea from HolidayCentral.com is so easy and lovely! Use all of those tomatoes from your garden (or farmers market) and place white daisies and bunches of Basil or Mint for a pop of green – very nice!
For those outdoor picnic-parties, pick a lovely red check table cloth and use this idea from MarthaStewart.com – a way to keep your table cloth where you want it to remain, click here for instructions.
My recommendation is to keep it simple, and enjoy your relaxing day!
