Labor Day Weekend is the last big holiday of the summer season, as well as a long weekend for everyone to enjoy before we bid adieu to warmer weather. This is also a popular time for culinary enthusiasts to plan a fun get together for friends and family to enjoy good food, good drinks and good times. There are many tips and tricks to throw the ultimate summer bash, but we pulled out our top three ways to elevate your Labor Day party below!
Put A Theme On It
A themed party guarantees a good time! There are many themes you can choose from for your Labor Day bash including an all-white party! It’s no longer a fashion faux-pas to wear white after Labor Day and it would be fun to say goodbye to long summer nights and warm weather with your guests dressed only in white. When you have a themed party you can also get creative with your décor and menu – think pure white tablecloths and white China, white chocolate dessert and more! Just make sure to carefully serve your feast so guests can keep their pristine outfits clean.
Plan a Delicious Menu
Culinary enthusiasts are experts at putting together the ultimate feast to keep guests happy and satisfied, and a good Labor Day spread will definitely be a highlight of your party. Traditional barbecue is always a safe bet, but if you’re really looking to make an impression then we suggest this Island Fire-and-Ice Pulled Pork with Mango Salsa. Pineapple, Maui onions, honey and ginger are some of the explosive island flavors that come together in this delicious entrée that is sure to be a hit at any end-of-summer soiree.
Pair Good Food with Good Drinks
A party isn’t complete without refreshments and delicious drinks. One of our top tips is to create wine ice cubes to serve with each glass of wine, this way the wine stays cool but doesn’t get watered down! Make sure to keep white wine ice cubes in glasses of white wine and red wine ice cubes in glasses of red wine. In addition, you can keep all of your refreshments chilled to perfection with assistance from the Thermador Double Drawer Refrigerator, or pull out frozen treats from a Freedom® Collection freezer column.
Whether you elect to have a themed party or a casual get together remember to relax and have a good time on this “workingman’s” holiday – you deserve it!
