Labor Day, which falls on the first Monday in September each year, honors the hard work of social and economic achievements made by the labor force in America. On this day, many businesses are closed, so it makes for a great time to plan a gathering of friends and family. Take a look at a few simple ways you can prepare for your Labor Day bash.
Food for the family
There is nothing like sharing a meal with the people you love. Plan a barbecue or a casual dinner party to soak up the last few days of summer and celebrate a long, relaxing weekend. Invite your closest friends to bring a side to share for a backyard bash, or pack a picnic and enjoy an afternoon of catching up at the park.
Décor for days
Dress us your event with some light décor to get your guests in the spirit. Sometimes, less is more when it comes to casual events like a Labor Day bash. Subtle details like simple centerpieces and atmospheric lighting can take your party to the next level. If you love decorating, take advantage of the holiday to show off your skills and create a space of celebration that is unique to you.
Games for all ages
Whether you’re observing Labor Day as a member of the workforce or as a kid going back to school, a game night can always bring in the laughs. Set up a volleyball net outside or gather around the living room for your favorite board games. Set the table with a few tasty appetizers for an easy night of fun.
Celebrate with community
Labor Day marks the beginning of a new season for families and for communities. Check your local events calendars to discover more ways to celebrate in your city. Spend your three-day weekend at the local fair or festival, or enjoy a night on the town to take advantage of those Labor Day deals and discounts.
Whatever you decide to do, be sure to retreat from the day-to-day tasks of work this Labor Day weekend, and contact Event Rentals by Hicks for all of your rental needs.
