Liven Up Your Labor Day

Here are some fun and unique ways you can celebrate Labor Day and enjoy what is left of the summer sun. 

Let Your Creativity Flow  

Whether you’re celebrating with family, a small group of friends, or staying home, it’s always fun to decorate. Here are some ideas for decorations or crafts to let your festive flag fly this Labor Day. 

  • Make decorative vases using old bottles. Paint the outside of bottles or mason jars red and blue and glue white stars onto the outside. Use the mason jars as centerpieces and put flowers or utensils in them.
  • Pamper your pillows. If you have any plain white pillows, it’s time to give them a facelift. Cut a star shape out of cardboard, use it as a stencil and hold it against the pillow. Spray with red or blue fabric paint to create pillows that will leave you starry-eyed.
  • Since traditionally, you shouldn’t wear white after Labor Day take your old white t-shirts and have a tie-dye party. Click for tips on how to tie dye.

Tasty Times Lie Ahead

  • If you’re in the baking mood try making a three-layered funfetti cake with a Labor Day twist. Add red food coloring into one layer, blue into another, and leave the third layer as is. Once the layers have cooled stack them together using your favorite icing in between and when you cut into the cake you will have a red, white, and blue surprise. If you want to go the extra mile add red, white, and blue sprinkles on top!
