Labor Day is coming up quick! For many, that means a Labor Day Party as the last day of summer fun before school starts. For the rest of us, it is a much-needed break from all the stress of getting the kids sent back to school.
But no matter when school starts for you, everyone loves to make Labor Day fun with great food, company and fun activities. But no one wants the added pressure. I mean, we have enough happening with all the back to school chaos!
So let me show you how you can still have a great Labor Day party without all the stress and mess!
3 Easy Labor Day Party Tips
Tip #1: Use Disposables! When it comes to gatherings, no one likes to do the clean up afterward. So make it easy on everyone! Use disposable table clothes, disposable dishes and silverware! This means no one has to do dishes and everyone can easily clean up after themselves!
Make sure you have a trash can easily visible so your guests can place their used disposable dishes in the trash. And now you don’t have to clean up after everyone and no dishes to wash!
Tip #2: Potluck! Hosting labor day gatherings can be fun. But if you have a big gathering of friends and family that can get quite stressful and expensive! So don’t put the pressure on yourself to provide all the food for everyone. Spread the load.
Have everyone bring a dish to share at the potluck. Let them know beforehand how many people to plan for and ask each person to bring a favorite dish to share.
This way there is still plenty of food, but you don’t have to foot the bill or spend all week cooking!
Tip#3: Easy food! Even with the guests bringing a dish, you still have to prepare food. There are many ways you can make it easy by not going elaborate on the menu!
For the main course keep it simple by grilling! This will ensure excellent flavor in the food, but the cooking and clean up is a breeze! Plus it doesn’t heat up your house! We often like to do hot dogs, hamburgers, and maybe some grilled chicken for the adults.
For the side dishes do simple spreads of veggies, bread/pita, chips and fruit with dip!
One of our favorites is a plate of various fruits using Chobani Yogurt in a bowl for the fruit dip. It’s a healthier choice versus the sugar-loaded fruit dips. Plus it still tastes divine and your guests will be asking your secret! Especially if you hide the yogurt container!
Likewise, make the healthier choice by using the new Chobani Meze Dip found near the deli section in Walmart, Target and Meijer.
The Chobani Meze Dip comes in 4 delicious flavors:
- Roasted Red Pepper
- Chili Lime
- Three Pepper Salsa
- Smoked Onion and Parmesan
Chobani Meze Dips feature real veggies, herbs and spices blended with creamy Greek Yogurt in a shareable 10oz container. They are made with only natural, non-GMO ingredients. And they have 80% less fat and 65% fewer calories than the leading hummus.
So make your side platters easy! Pop open a Chobani Meze Dip in your favorite flavors.
Set it in the center of a plate and surround it with your favorite dipping vegetables and chips!
Set it out and watch the guests dig in!
At the end, clean up is a cinch! Rebag any leftover fruits and veggies. Replace the cap on the dips – if by a miracle you have any left over. And put it all in the fridge.
Now all you have left is to take out the trash and all is done! Now you no longer need a vacation from your vacation day!
You can have a wonderful Labor Day party with family and friends without all the stress or mess! All while you enjoy the company and great food!
Toss in some fun outside games like a sack race, Yardzee and horseshoes, or even water volleyball! And you will have the best Labor Day party yet!
