What better way than to send summer off with a bang than to throw a rockin' Labor Day party? This DIY version can be easier than you may think and more budget-friendly too!
What would a good party be without games? Set out your lawn games and make yourself a giant Jenga set. Jenga is sure to please both adults and children alike and requires no administration or teaching of rules from you. Purchase uniform wooden blocks from your local hardware store and decorate as you like. Your guests will love it and you will be an on-trend host!
Make your food pop! If this subject alone makes your nervous, don't be. This is actually easy to do. Consider cutting up your watermelon into small triangles and sticking them on a wooden skewer for easy-eating. Pre-freeze different fruits and popular herbs into ice trays before your party starts. Guests can choose to jazz up whatever kind of beverages they have with what suits their fancy. Assemble a sliders bar to help you control proportions, give your party some novelty and make you look good.
Don't forget about decor. Turn something old into something new to save you dollars and give you something to brag about. Make an DIY table runner by picking up something basic at your local thrift store, garage sale or your mother's house and use fabric glue and small felt additions of your choice to jazz it up. Pick a decorating theme starting with one point of inspiration (see pineapples below) and match your other items and decor choices to this point for a cohesive look that doesn't require a ton of thinking from you.
