Labor Day constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. To learn more about the holiday and its history, read our post from last Labor Day. Since many people have this day off from work, it's become a day to BBQ and celebrate with family and friends as well as the unofficial last day/weekend of summer. So, to help you prepare for your Labor Day party, we've gathered a few ideas and recipes to make your bash special this year.
If you're looking for something to do the last few days of summer with the kids, why not craft a few decorations for your Labor Day party? I love these up-cycled flower pots painted with stars and stripes.
Simply adding flags to your tables and around the house is an easy way to give your party a patriotic feel as well.
