Throw a Backyard Bash for Labor Day

You’ve been working hard and school is finally back in session. It’s time for you to relax! Kick back next to your swimming pool, soak up the sun and embrace your day off.

To get you started, we’re sharing with you some of our favorite backyard bash ideas!

With Labor Day around the corner, that can only mean one thing – Monday Night Football! Have your friends and family over to watch the game or invite the neighbors over for a block party. Whichever you choose, get ready for a spirited night by the pool! Toss the old pig skin in a game of touch football, or jump in your swimming pool and play a game of water polo or volleyball. Feed your guests with game day food such as barbequed burgers or wings accompanied with an ice cold drink. Don’t forget the chips and dip!

Using your Labor Day to have fun with the kids? Liven up your day by playing pool games with the family! Embrace the classics like Marco Polo or try a new game such as Ping Pong Scramble. While the kids are swimming, fire up the outdoor grill and feast on some homemade barbeque or try one of our unique recipes!

For those looking for a rejuvenating day at home, enjoy an at-home spa day. Start your morning off with a healthy breakfast, such as yogurt topped with fresh fruit and granola, and invite your friends over to be pampered by the pool. Listen to tranquil music while receiving massages or manis and pedis, and arrange a misting fan for all your guests to stay cool. Sparkling water or champagne and petite finger foods should be served to your guests to keep them feeling refreshed and relaxed all day.

Party Tips:

  • Tape the ends of table cloths underneath the table

  • Refrain from using glass outdoors

  • Use a kiddie pool as an ice chest to serve drinks

  • Have extra towels for your guests

  • Keep food that spoils out of the sun

  • Don’t forget the sunscreen!

Whatever route you choose to celebrate, enjoy your backyard pool or hot tub. Happy Labor Day!
