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?

Turning your Sunroom into a Greenhouse

Four Season’s sunrooms offer endless opportunities to design and customize. And the perfect touch could be to add an interior garden to your sunroom.

Covid-19 Changes Spending Habits

We all have seen the detrimental effects the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our communities. The loss of jobs, inability to stock up on basic necessities, and lack of person-to-person contact are just a few of the things we went months without. As our society is finally returning to “normal” due to the introduction of vaccines, we are all opening up our doors and spending more time with those we love. Before we discuss the bright future ahead, let's take a moment to reflect on the past. During the heart of the pandemic, many industries were struggling. A variety of businesses had to shut their doors due to a lack of customers and need for their products. Contrarily, other industries boomed due to a want for their goods and services.
