Set the Stage
Who doesn’t love a theme party? A Labor Day Party provides the perfect theme to take your pool party up a notch. Set the party stage with balloons, specialty lighting, sparklers, or even matching t-shirts! If you’ve included lighting features in your pool design, this is the perfect opportunity to showcase those dazzling custom elements. Create a festive, exciting environment for the ultimate pool party your guests will remember. Decorate each area of your luxury outdoor living space for showstopping, patriotic fun.
Party with a Great Playlist
Labor Day Weekend is a truly American holiday, so go all-in on the patriotic theme with a fun playlist! Choose recognizable songs or check out a prepared playlist on whichever music streaming site you use. There’s nothing more fun than a pool party with everyone singing and dancing to some great tunes.
Prep the Essentials!
Every Labor Day Party should stock the basics to keep your guests comfortable and happy. Many of them are easy to miss in your party planning, so add these essentials to your shopping list:
- Floaties and inner tubes keep kids safe and help adults relax
- Have lots of towels on hand when guests finish swimming
- Sunscreen and hats are necessary to prevent too much sun exposure
- September is a buggy time of year, so grab some bug spray!
- Make sure you have lots of cool water for your guests; it’s easy to get dehydrated outdoors
