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.


You can even find easy, healthy kebab recipes from Woman’s 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.

The Beachside Bash

Pack up your party supplies and head to the coast for one last beach bash! Even if you are landlocked, hosting a nautical-themed Labor Day party is a great way to say goodbye to summer in style.

    Good idea to plan ahead! I always forget until it’s too late and then have to throw something together in a hurry. Thanks for the reminder!

    Hey , it’s Labor Day! I’m happy with my extra day off, and I am planning to doing something fun that will probably involve a moto trip and seeing something new in Wayne I haven’t seen yet.
