4 Savvy Ways to Decorate for a Labor Day Party

Every year, people look forward to the first weekend for one main reason: Labor Day parties. It’s the perfect time to close out summer celebrations while hosting a tribute to the workforce in America—and a Labor Day party is sure to be a crowd pleaser. To make the party as fun as possible, you’ll want to create an atmosphere that’s perfectly themed for the occasion. Wondering how you can host your own stylish party this September? Follow these four ideas for decorating for your Labor Day party this year.

1- Go Patriotic with Red, White and Blue
Nothing says Labor Day quite like the colors of red, white and blue. This color combination is effortlessly patriotic and perfect for your end-of-summer party. Luckily, these colors will also be easiest to find decorations to decorate your party space with.

With a casual Labor Day party, you can set up food and drinks buffet-style on a table decorated with a bright red table cloth and blue and white runners. Or, decorate the table with mason jars filled with a fun arrangement of red and white flowers. Hosting a more intimate party with place settings? Martha Stewart suggests patriotic napkin rings for a fun twist that’s uncomplicated yet elevated enough for a well-decorated Labor Day party.

Round out the decorations with small bunted flags and twinkle lights strung around the house or patio for a sweet and memorable touch.

2- Opt for Bright Colors
While red, white and blue are the classic colors that come to mind for Labor Day, that doesn’t mean you can’t go for something a little different. Because Labor Day marks the beginning of the end of summer, it’s only fitting to close out the season with bright, fun colors. With everything from bright blue to sunny yellow and everything in between, guests will love the energizing burst of color. You could also opt for decorations in electrifying neon colors.

Like the idea of bright colors but still want to keep your party on the traditional side? Mix and match them with red, white and blue. Try mixing a yellow tablecloth with flag-inspired centerpieces or hanging decorations, or hang bright blue pom pom decorations to spice up your party.

3- Let Your Food and Drink Shine as Decoration

When you think of decorations, food and drink are probably separate entities in your mind. However, that’s all changing in the age of Instagram–people are now creating food displays that look too good to eat! Take advantage of this exciting trend by creating food and drink stations with on-theme treats, including patriotic cocktails, desserts, main courses and more. Think red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and blue sprinkles or white wine sangria with strawberries and blueberries mixed in.

Even classic barbeque foods can be dressed up for a Labor Day party. You can serve burgers and fries in red, white and blue wrappers and containers or sodas with blue- and red-striped straws.

4- Celebrate the Work Force

As you’re trying to decide on Labor Day party decorations, it’s important to remember the roots of this holiday: the American workforce. Find decorations celebrating different professions in the United States. You could also make your own decorations by creating cutouts of popular professions, such as doctors, nurses or construction workers. Place these throughout your party space, and write descriptions about each and how they are important to fabric of the U.S. workforce. It’s a sweet touch that brings the party together in a way all your guests will love. Best of all, they will be decorations that everyone can relate to!
