While you may be sad summer is coming to an end, it doesn’t mean your last summer bash can’t go out in style! Go big or go home this Labor Day using these tips to throw a larger than life end of summer celebration!  

1. Go Big on the Decor

Nothing says party like a festive environment! Go with a summer theme or try something a bit more patriotic. Either way, over the top, fun, festive decor takes any party up another notch, and if you have little ones, this is a great way to get the kids involved in party prep! 

2. Keep Guests Entertained with Giant Lawn Games

From giant Jenga to larger than life connect four, giant lawn games are a great way to keep guests entertained at an outdoor party. To make things even more fun, split into teams and have a tournament. The prize can be anything from a 6 pack to a gift card.. the real fun is in the games themselves!  

3. Giant Pool Floats

It’s no secret that giant pool floats have been having a moment this summer. Take advantage of those end of summer sales and snatch up any giant inflatable pizza slices and flamingos that are still floating around to make your pool party a whole lot more fun! 

Bonus tip: These can also double as the prizes for your tournament in tip number two!  

4. Supersized Outdoor Movie Screen

If your idea of fun is ending the night with a movie, there’s no need to take the party indoors! Soak up the last bit of summer weather by watching an outdoor movie. This setup can be as simple as a projector on your outside wall, or as elaborate as building a more permanent outdoor theater that you can cozy up around a fire to watch during fall. 

5. Extra Large Food Spread

No good party is complete without good food! Ditch the usual hot dogs and hamburgers for an extra large menu this Labor Day. Have everyone you invited bring their favorite dish to assemble a potluck fit for royalty. You can either assign categories of food, or just let people bring whatever they make best! Either way, you’ll be less stressed, and you’ll know there’s something there that each person likes!
