The end of summer is right around the corner, but we’re ready to help you end it in style this Labor Day weekend! This holiday calls for fun times, good food and relaxing moments, and we’re here to help you figure out what you need for a perfect celebration.

In addition to great layouts with plenty of outdoor space, this private, master-planned community offers two grand clubhouses with resort-style pools, kids’ water parks, elegant ballrooms, fitness centers, and more.
Celebrate with Patriotic Decor
There are so many options when it comes to incorporating red, white, and blue, as well as the stars and stripes for holiday decor. Consider using wreaths, lighting, paper lanterns, banners, centerpieces, napkins, chair covers, serving buckets, place cards, or other creative ways to add a touch of color and pride to your party. Use food as a decorating platform for fun patriotic treats and enjoy a snack that looks as good as it tastes!
Be Ready to Grill
Most celebrations revolve around food, putting pressure on the grill master, but providing a nice selection ensures that everyone will enjoy their meals. Buy items such as brisket, chicken, ribs, hot dogs, steaks, patties, and fish, as well as plenty of vegetables and other options for non-meat eaters, and your celebration is bound to be a success. While grilling, make sure to clean the surface periodically. This not only ensures cleanliness, but also prevents food from sticking. Surprise your guests with a grilled dessert too, such as grilled pineapple sundaes or fruit skewers!
Keep Kids Entertained
With a lot of sweets around, it’s important to have fun ways to help kids burn off all that excess energy. Set up activities for them to enjoy throughout the day and use both the inside and outside of your home. Red, white, and blue water balloons, slip-n-slides, or poolside games are all good ways to keep the kids cool and having fun. By setting up a station inside with coloring pages, board games, and puzzles, kids will have their own place to hang out and cool down.
Remember the Basics
If you’re hosting a few guests or trying to entertain the family, it’s important to make sure everyone is comfortable. Choosing to celebrate outside means having sunscreen, towels, and bug spray on hand. Make sure everyone drinks plenty of water and washes their hands.
This Labor Day, whether you’re celebrating with friends, family, or enjoying the day on your own, stay safe, healthy, and enjoy the day off work! You’ve earned it!
