Labor Day is just around the corner, and for most of the working world, it will be a much-needed day of rest. But rest comes in many forms, and one of our favorite ways to unwind is with a plate piled high with all our favorite end-of-summer flavors, lots of friends and an adult beverage (or three). So pull out your favorite notepad and get planning the final bash of the summer.
Before you order a pound of pulled pork and two-dozen cupcakes, do a little research to get the lowdown on the holiday you’re celebrating. We acknowledge Labor Day on the first Monday in September to celebrate the American Labor Movement and all the laborers in our country’s history who helped paved the way for future generations of American workers.
Even though it seems obvious, planning a Labor Day party shouldn’t be laborious itself. After all, that would negate the whole point of having a day off! Make it easy on yourself by planning ahead and using the day before your party as prep time to ensure you get to enjoy your own party.
For quick and delicious recipes, pick up a SampleHouse Cookbook to find something simple to make and easy to serve, like Pulled Pork Sliders, Fresh Herb Potato Salad and cool, creamy Lemon Meringue Pie. For maximum relaxin’, focus on dishes that can serve a group and require minimum clean-up. Hint: Let your slow cooker be the star of the show.
For hosting and clean-up help, look no further than the shelves of SampleHouse for all your party gadget needs. The Corkcicle line of products keeps cold things cold and adds just a little style to your chilled beverages, while our beautiful selection of serving dishes, bowls and plates will impress even the plastic forks.
But if there’s anything to remember about throwing the perfect Labor Day party, it’s this: Don’t forget the Salsa-Holics salsa from SampleHouse! We can outfit your shindig with anything from a mild verde to a hotter-than-heck option and everything in between. Happy celebrating!
