3 Tips for The Greatest Summer Send Off Party
Summer has been good to us this year, so it deserves the best farewell. What better way to say goodbye to sun-kissed tans, BBQs and poolside chats than to invite your dearest friends over to celebrate Labor Day? Here are three tips & tricks that will leave your guests feeling relaxed, fulfilled, and ready to welcome fall!
TIP 1: Mood Lighting
Lighting makes all the difference. Set up tiki torches, have a bonfire going, hang lights, or place lanterns on the table to communicate to your guests that you have every intention of making this a night to remember! Plus, it also allows the party to keep going when the sun goes down. We’re obsessed with the Takara Lanterns – these warm golden teak wood and glass luminaries will add height and drama to your tablescape.
TIP 2: Red, White, & Blueberry
A typical theme of Labor Day is the American flag, so showcase those colors in a creative (and tasty) way. Decorate your table with red, white and blue treats (because, let’s be honest – the more food, the better!). We recommend a patriotic fruit tray, a fruit pizza, or a fun cocktail - really anything that can be both patriotic and delicious.
TIP 3: Set the Table
This trick will probably be the biggest wow factor for your guests, who will probably just be expecting paper plates and a buffet line. Dress up your table with an effortless centerpiece and simplistic table settings. We recommend using three complimentary pieces: woven placemats, simple white china, and a patterned accent plate for a pop of color. Adding different textured elements to the table can make it seem fuller than it is.
