  1. Watermelon on a stick. Nothing says summer quite like a juicy watermelon. Make it party-friendly and and fun by cutting them up into tiny chunks and popping them onto the end of a stick.

  1. Food name tags. Ok, so not really a name tag like you would stick on your shirt. But stretching your creative muscle and printing off some tags with the names of the dishes and using straws or sticks to place them in the bowl is both functional and festive. The best part? There’s no wrong way to do this, so anything goes!

  1. Sliders. No Labor Day party is complete without a healthy dose of grilling. Let your guests sample a little bit of everything (without feeling guilty) by making your dishes a little smaller. Cooking up sliders rather than full-size patties allows everyone to try more than one set of toppings. So that means you should also consider branching out from the run-of-the-mill lettuce, pickles, onion and tomato toppings for an extra dose of novelty.

  1. Frozen water balloons. Skip the boring ice chest and keep your beverages on display by filling up water balloons and popping them in the freezer the day before your big party. When it’s time to get the show on the road, load up some big bowls or buckets with the frozen balloons and let them keep all the drinks cold and visible.

  1. Lawn bowling. Sure you can have your regular games like cornhole/baggo, but lawn bowling is much more unique. All you need is 10 2-liter bottles (washed and dried), some spray paint (any color of your choosing and formulated for plastic), some gravel and a ball about the size of a bowling ball but much, much lighter. Put just enough gravel in each bottle that they don’t get knocked over by the wind, but not so much that they are impossible to tip over (unless you want to play a very mean prank on all of your friends).

If you weren’t already planning on throwing a Labor Day party, give it another thought. If you pull out all of these stops (plus countless more that you can find on Pinterest), your friends won’t be able to stop talking about how great your Labor Day party was that one time.
