Labor day shows your patriotic passion towards the giants who stepped out and fought for workers' rights. It's all about paying tribute to the hands that build up the entire economy and to the hands that boost the development and growth of America.
There's one exciting thing you can do to pay tribute to the heroes of the labor movement, and that's none other than throwing an incredible party. Invite your friends and family to a beautiful Labor Day-themed party. But how exactly is the theme for a Labor Day party?
Well, let's find out!
Anything Around Red, White, or Blue
Show your respect and love to American workers by featuring the colors of the American flag. It's one of America's most popular ways of celebrating Labor Day. Then, decorate your party with the colors of the flag. Whether it's your hallway, dining table, dinnerware, or outdoor decorations, make sure you use appropriate colors that make sense with Labor Day.
You can choose to have a red tablecloth with a combination of disposable red and blue plates. It can create such a great contrast that your guests will definitely talk about it. You can also choose a range of colorful plate sets from Smarty Had A Party.
Labor Day Tablescape
Your entire tablescape must project the vibes of Labor Day celebrations. You can decorate your tablescape with multiple elements like plates, forks, drinkware, tablecloth, napkins, and epic centerpieces. Make sure that your decorations resemble Labor Day.
For that purpose, you can use colorful plastic charger plates (red usually looks attractive). On top of that, place patriotic plastic plates in all sizes and colors. Surprisingly, Kaya Tableware provides you with disposable patriotic plates to make your party hassle-free. There's a wide range of colorful plate sets available too.
You can also add a few other design elements to make your table look appealing and different. Moreover, having a BBQ setup alongside such a table would be epic! Tight on budget? Don't worry; here's our complete guide on how to throw a Labor Day BBQ party on a budget.
Labor Day Dessert
When it comes to desserts, nothing comes to mind other than a delicious cake. On the upcoming Labor Day, you can try one of the best American flag cake recipes that will definitely make a statement to your guests. Here's the secret recipe to it!
Get Creative with Baseball Bats
No matter your party theme, you can always ask your friends and guests to bring their baseball bats. Then, you can wrap them with insulation tapes of different colors and create something like this.
Use double-sided tape to hang them on the wall, and enjoy having some photos with it to update your Instagram and spread the word about Labor Day.
It's all about creating a patriotic theme; you can use anything you think will do the work. Just get creative with what you already have at home.
Decorate with Balloons
Decorating the party venue with balloons is one of the cheapest and most beautiful methods. You can grab some balloons of blue, white, and red colors to decorate your entire party. You can hang them all from the ceiling or on the wall.
You can also create a backdrop or make a stunning American flag with ordinary-looking balloons.
However, if you don't have time for such a masterpiece, you can work on decorating your indoors with just a bunch of balloons, which will look mesmerizing.
What's more patriotic than playing some national songs that give you goosebumps? Ask your guests to send them their most-favorite playlists of national songs and compile a thrilling playlist of patriotic national songs that you can play in the background while you have fun.
It's all about creating a patriotic environment. Since the choice of listening to music is subjective, it's always better to ask your guests to contribute by suggesting a national song.
A party without banners looks incomplete. Source some banners or make your own at home. It's so simple to make. All you need is some paper charts, a scissor, a thread, and a bunch of color markers, and you're good to go! Here's just one idea of what you can create at home. It can become one of your favorite DIY projects.

Thinking about throwing an outdoor party? You're so obsessed with the end of Summer, aren't you? Outdoor parties are fun to throw, but there are many things you'd have to manage, like a plentiful water supply (or maybe lemonade).
No doubt, backyard parties are the most fabulous parties, and there's a lot you can do to make it feel more patriotic. You might have some planks in the backyard that you think are useless, but they're not.
Today's the day to make them look amazing! Grab some spray paint bottles and spray your planks to create something stunning like this.
