Celebrated on the first Monday in September, Labor Day was originally dedicated to the social and economic achievements of the American workforce. Today, it serves as an unofficial end to summer, an extra chance to sleep in and a fabulous excuse for a party!
Here are a few ideas to help with your celebration inspiration:
The Labor Day Barbecue
As classic as gingham tablecloths at a picnic, the Labor Day cookout is a timeless celebration that you can easily turn into an annual affair. Make it a potluck, or prep your kebabs and meat marinades in advance to give yourself plenty of time to mingle instead of being cooped up in the kitchen all day.

The Sizzling Summer Cocktail Party
Bid a fond farewell to summer with a classic cocktail party. Host a sleek white party, or keep the mood light with comfortable outdoor seating, fruity drinks, summery music and a range of tasty small bites and appetizers.
