Now that summer is almost over, the time has come to say goodbye to it with a bang by throwing the best Labor Day barbecue possible!
Since this is the last bash of the summer, it should be the best one. All you need to do is make sure that you cover the basics when it comes to throwing the best Labor Day barbecue, making it one that all of your friends and family members will be talking about all season long.
First thing’s first – you want to make sure that you have your decorations set up and ready for your Labor Day barbecue. Since Labor Day is an American holiday, you will want to decorate with red, white, and blue. The most inexpensive and fastest way to do this is to place American flag colored balloons throughout your backyard. Tiki torches are a great touch for when it starts to get dark outside, as well as hanging up some hammocks for your guests to relax in during the party.
Aside from laying back and relaxing, you will also want to make sure that your guests have plenty of activities to keep them entertained. The best way to do that is to make sure that there are plenty of games to keep everyone on their feet the whole time. Sheplers suggests picking American classics that honor the holiday, such as corn hole, football, and horseshoes.
Perhaps the most important part of any barbecue, what you choose to grill should be chosen carefully, especially since this is one of the last opportunities that you will have to grill for the rest of the year. Hamburgers, hotdogs, chicken kabobs, grilled corn on the cob, potato salad, and a variety of chips are a must. If you want, you can challenge your guests on who can make the best desserts, by hosting a bake-off for everyone to participate in.
