5 September Parties for Indoor and Outdoor Fun

As summer draws to a close, Labor Day is around the corner!  Want to make plans? Here are five ideas to help you and your loved ones enjoy the most that early September has to offer-- whether in the great outdoors or in the comfort of your home.


Outdoor

First, consider a classic. If you have a grill, you can throw a Labor Day barbecue! This event is casual, and it can accommodate small or large crowds. All you need is some outdoor furniture for your guests. It's also a nice base for other fun activities. Horseshoes? Dancing? Cooling off in the patio room? It's up to you!

Speaking of classics, everyone loves the beach (especially in warmer parts of the country)!  Have a swimming pool? Why not throw a beach themed party in your backyard? Invite people to bring their swimsuits, towels, and beach balls. Decorate with inflatable toys shaped like palm trees or sharks. You could even set up wave sound effects! And remember to give your guests a place to dry off. A cool, covered area, like a pergola or patio cover, would work well especially on those last few blazing hot days in September.



Are you more of a night owl? Set aside time for stargazing. Summer is a great time to watch the sky, because there are fewer clouds to block your view. Lay out blankets and sleeping bags, make some snacks, and enjoy yourselves. You can find excellent stargazing guides online, like this one from One Minute Astronomer and this one from Stardate.org, or you can stick to spotting the constellations you know! And if it gets chilly, you can always retreat inside, especially if you have wide windows or a sunroom from which you can watch the sky.

Indoor

Want to enjoy the soothing sunshine without risking the burns? Have a spa day! Make summer cocktails, like this classic pina colada from Food Network, put on some relaxing music, and pamper yourselves in the sunniest part of your home. Face masks are an excellent way to use seasonal ingredients; these recipes use strawberries to hydrate and exfoliate your face. You can also get your hands and feet beach-ready with manicures and pedicures!



On the other hand, maybe you're not a fan of warm weather at all. In that case, why not throw a winter holiday party in summer instead? Even the warmer months could be improved by gift-giving and feasts! Make a playlist of your favorite holiday songs, hang up lights and ornaments, and welcome your friends into your beautiful, sunny home for a festive surprise.
Now you're ready to party! But is your home ready to host?
