Labor Day Party Planning Ideas

The end of summer is ushered in by an American holiday that celebrates the workers and the work ethic that has made this country great – Labor Day. Send summer off with a blast with these Labor Day party suggestions from our Atlanta event space staff.

Host an All-white Party

Whether you follow the popular fashion adage “never wear white after Labor Day” or not, say goodbye to summer in all-white outfits just for fun! Add color to the event with eye-popping decor in a rainbow of summer shades. Outrageously orange tablecloths, sunshine yellow lanterns strung all around, a cluster of late summer blooms in purple, magenta, pink and red as centerpieces – simply use your imagination.

Serve Summer Food

Grilling is the only way to cook during summer, so whatever kind of meat, fish or fowl you’re serving, make sure they arrive at your guests’ table smoky and charred to perfection. Have plenty of fresh summer produce on hand as well, such as sweet corn, juicy watermelons and succulent cantaloupes.

Catch the Last Fireflies

Start by setting out empty containers or mason jars and markers on the tables and encourage your guests to decorate them any way they wish. As it starts to get dark, give them votive candles to place inside the vials and light them up at the same time. Viola! The twinkling lights of the votive candles will recall the fireflies of summer, giving your guests one last time to bid these childhood memories a fond farewell.
