The last holiday of the summer is fast approaching, and planning a Labor Day celebration should already be in the works. Choosing an event space, decorations, and menu are crucial to throwing a fun and exciting Labor Day party for your friends and family.

Start Early
Labor Day is similar to other holidays in that people start making their weekend plans well before the date arrives. Since many businesses may be closed or have shortened hours, employees will plan a long weekend trip or come up with their own celebration. If you plan on throwing a big Labor Day soiree at a beautiful party space, then notify your intended guests early on. Give people at least a month’s notice, so they can plan their own events or trips around your Labor Day celebration.

Decorate Patriotically
Labor Day was created over 100 years ago, and it has been an important American holiday celebrating the workforce that has built this country on its back. Labor Day is often celebrated like Memorial Day and the 4th of July. Decorate your party space rental in patriotic colors and American flags. If you are celebrating a particular company or industry, then consider how you might decorate your event space to reflect that industry, as well.

Build a Summer Menu
With the end of summer creeping closer, use the opportunity of a Labor Day celebration to serve yummy summer food. Barbecued foods, fresh fruit, and vegetable kebobs are popular choices that everyone can enjoy. Finish the night off with some warm apple pie and cool ice cream for dessert. Your guests will appreciate the effort you have gone to in your catering, and everyone will be happy they chose to come to your Labor Day celebration.
