Fruity Ice Cubes
Do you want to know what makes the best parties? It’s always the details! Details make a huge difference. An average Labor Day party can be made even better by freezing cut fruit inside each ice cube that you make.

- Lemon slices
- Orange slices
- And many more!
Pool Party Turned Movie Night
Turn the usual pool party into one of the most epic movie nights ever. For this, you will need a projector which will display the movie to a projection screen. Your guests will have the option of watching the movie inside or outside of your pool. Don't forget the fun snacks and popcorn as they will complete this amazing movie night experience.
Gnome Lawn Bowling

Do you want to know how can you get your guests excited for your Labor Day party? We have the answer for you: one-of-a-kind snacks! Yes, finger foods and grilled burgers are perfect, especially if you are looking for substance, but what makes an impact are the snacks. We are thinking of custom made donuts, glitter cupcakes, and watermelon and mint popsicles! The more energy and thought you dedicate to your food, the more you'll be increasing your chances of pleasing your guests!
Keep Pests Away
Nothing can instantly dampen the spirit of your Labor Day party faster than annoying pests. Make sure you have bug wipes to offer to your guests. You can also make DIY citronella candles and place them around your backyard.
Place a chalkboard anywhere in the space where you will hold your party. The chalkboard will serve as the menu for the day, identifying different dishes you are serving throughout the duration of the party. Decorate the board with floral flourishes or ask someone else with artistic talents.
If you are going to celebrate this national holiday, remember to be safe while having fun. For those who have worked hard in order to serve the country, we honor and salute you!
