Summer is coming to an end, and Labor Day is right around the corner. Time sure does fly.

This Labor Day, it’s time to throw a bash that your friends and family will be talking about well after Christmas.

In this article, we’ll show you exactly how to throw the ultimate Labor Day party without breaking the bank.

Now, let’s dive in.

1. Invite the Right People

A bigger party isn’t always the best party. If you invite everybody you know, you might end up with a group of wallflowers or gossipy types that drag the entire party down.

Instead, choose a select group of people that you know will enjoy spending time together. The right people create the best environment for everyone to enjoy.

2. Food, Food, Food

Labor Day is one of the best days of the year to fire up the grill and make all of the neighbors jealous of the aromas.

For your Labor Day party, focus on outdoor foods that everyone will enjoy. Of course, you’ll want plenty of burgers and hot dogs. But think outside the box by working in veggie skewers, roasted vegetables, and even rotisserie chicken.

For side dishes, pick up some pre-made pasta salads and potato salads from the grocery store. Put them in your own bowls and take credit for them if you want!

Desserts should be light and refreshing. A simple fruit salad with whipped cream will get the job done. Or, if you’re feeling more aggressive, strawberry shortcake with a side of chocolate will be a huge hit.

3. Fireworks Aren’t Just for the 4th

If you only shoot off fireworks on the 4th of July, you’re missing out.

A proud display of fireworks during your Labor Day party will make a huge impact while keeping attendees around well after the sun has set (if that’s what you want).

4. Stoke the Fire Pit

When 8:00 pm rolls around and the sun starts to set, it’s time to get the fire pit roaring.

Buy some hot dogs, marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate so that your guests can cook up some goodies while they sip on beer or wine.

Another workday might be coming on Tuesday, but tonight’s Labor Day. It’s time to celebrate.

5. Don’t Set Hours

Avoid a pre-set constraint on what hours your party will be happening. A simple invitation to your party should say something like, “Labor Day afternoon until you’re ready to head home. Come and go as you please.”

Setting specific hours will cause pressure on your guests to arrive on time, then make them feel obligated to leave at the time you specify.

Keep it general so the atmosphere is more relaxed and inviting to all guests.
