Can you believe summer is almost over? Labor Day is considered by many as the unofficial end to summer and the last chance to host an end of the season soiree. Before we get into the season of cozy layers, flannels and all things pumpkin spice, we have to send off summer with one last bash! Here are some ideas for celebrating Labor Day weekend:
Who says you can t wear white after Labor Day? Finish off summer with an all-white party! Ask your guests to wear their best white attire for the season s end. Serve white dishes like coconut cake, white chocolate dipped strawberries, cheese dips or alfredo pasta!
Classic Backyard BBQ
You can never go wrong with a classic BBQ for your Labor Day festivities. Have the pool ready, plenty of delicious plates and lots of fun activities planned for this one. Not sure how to host? Check out this blog post we wrote about hosting a Memorial Day party to get you started.
Pool Party Movie Night
This one is such a fun and unique idea. Rent or make your own outdoor movie screen and set up a projector for an outdoor movie night! Have lots of blankets, lawn chairs and popcorn ready for your guests when they arrive. A pool party movie night would be the perfect idea for a group with lots of little children.
Outdoor Game Night
Kids or no kids, everyone loves a game night! Keep the classics like corn hole and horse shoes, but add a twist to some old favorites. Use spray paint to create an outdoor twister board in the grass and check out giant versions of your favorite games like Jenga or Connect Four. Create teams and make a friendly competition out of the night!
Tired of the typical summer cookout foods? Host a delicious seafood boil! Most seafood boils include foods like cod, snow crab, shrimp, corn, mussels, vegetables and tons of spices, but everyone has a preference on how they like it best! Gather a group for the boil, spread some newspaper over a picnic table and get to cooking!
Having that extra day off is the perfect excuse to pack up the car and head on a little road trip. Virginia Beach is so close to many fun and relaxing places. Plan a camping trip by the lake, a drive to the Outer Banks or a weekend in Richmond.
Whatever your plans, we wish you a fun and safe Labor Day from Willis Furniture & Bedding!
