I am here with 10 Labor Day party ideas for you. Get ready to spark your creativity with these great tablescapes. Everything from nautical to patriotic to just colorful and fun. There is something for everyone in this post. Labor Day marks the end of summer so however you choose to celebrate, do it with a bang. Grab your finest party fare for a meal on the deck with just your family or throw a neighborhood bash that they will never forget. However you do it, be sure to stir your imagination with these creative ideas.
You table setting does not have to be fussy or overdone. Grab some mismatched chairs from the house, a simple table runner, and some grocery store flowers. Your table can look just like this one from Design Sponge for a simple backyard celebration.
Try a fun spin on nautical mixed with the patriotic and adorn your table with a life preserver just like Design Empire. Fun, unexpected touches on your table are always a conversation starter.
Maybe you just want to print some decor and move on? These fun retro designs from Catch my Party are free to print and will add some color to your Labor Day party.
Host your Labor Day bash in your outdoor garden. Take a cue from Lemonade Makin Mama and add fun chalkboard potted plants to your table. A simple brown paper covers the table in this no muss no fuss tablescape.
Blue and white stripes with nautical touches adorn this table from Pencil Shavings Studio. If you are going for nautical and elegant, this tablescape is for you. The coral on the plates is my absolute favorite part.
Maybe you want a nautical theme but a bit more rustic? Add in some brown like Designs by Gollum and her fun nautical but slightly rustic tablescape. The matching coral napkins and placemats are just gorgeous.
Make your party patriotic themed, but simply, with these ideas from Ruffled Blog. I like the red and blue with touches of yellow in this slightly patriotic tablescape. To me this one is rustic, but still a bit elegant. Plus it is one that you can easily do at home with a limited budget.
I ran across a couple of great summer party tables that used table runners in new and unexpected ways. I love the series of runners on this tablescape from Sweet as Candy. This is a unique way to set a table indoors or out.
Another unique use of table runners comes from Uncommon Designs with the crossed runners on a round table. Those woven chargers and lemon centerpiece are gorgeous as well don’t you think? What a fun way to dress a table!
For my last Labor Day party idea, I have gathered together some ideas from the links above plus some of my own for a mood board. This would be my dream table at a Labor Day celebration. I would set a round table with this red stars tablecloth. Then, taking a cue from the link above, I would lay two crossed runners down with these blue jute runners. The napkins would tie it all together in these stars and stripes napkins. Then set the table with woven chargers and plain white plates. The middle would house red flowers and some patriotic candles. Finish off the table with some chalkboard placecards. Wouldn’t this make a great Labor Day party?
Try these fun Labor Day party ideas for yourself and have the best end of summer bash in history!
