Entertaining: Labor Day

Labor Day entertaining is usually an end-of-summer celebration. With warmer weather on it’s way out and cooler days ahead, Labor Day is known as a seasonal transition marker. If you are entertaining this Labor Day, decorate your party space with non traditional color: w h i t e. White is a “fresh and clean” party theme- a great alternative to the traditional red, white, and blue color spread used for Labor day.

Gather white items from around your house to use as party decor. No need to go out and buy all new stuff.

Decor ideas: White paper lanterns, white candles, white plates and napkins, and white linens. Gather bunches of white flowers and display on your tabletops.

Some white flowers are: Lilies, Carnations, Roses, Daisies, Orchids, Hydrangeas and Gardenias

I also love the idea of making lounge space outdoors. You can group patio furniture together or even drag a daybed or small love seat outdoors for your party. To provide a dramatic touch, hang white linens around your seating area. This is a simple way to make a statement with your decor.
