Labor Day BBQs

Labor Day always feels like the last real weekend of summer.  You can already feel the crispness in the air, but the days are still warm.  We celebrate Labor Day by attending our town's Sweet Corn Festival.  I love living in a town where they celebrate the corn harvest, it puts me right in the mood for fall!  Here are some great ideas and picture inspirations for a last big summer bash....think backyard, little country touches, and a little patriotism all thrown in to make this Delightful Endeavor!
Love the sunflowers!  And since they are in season they are perfect centerpiece!

Repurposing indoor furniture in your event creates a unique little vignette, and gives a cute rustic touch!  Use scrapbooking cones to hold chips, popcorn, or trail mix for a "Grab it" appetizer

This is such a cute idea - a Shortcake bar, complete with three types of berries and whip cream! LOVE THE BACKGROUND AS WELL!

Build a gourmet hot dog! Have all the fixins' labeled so people can customize their dogs!

Some Red, White, and Blue touches complete a Patriotic look

GENIUS! Individually packaged baked beans - no more soggy buns!

Individually packing your side dishes eliminates wait in a buffet line and gets rid of the dreaded spoon mess!

Lanterns are the perfect touch of summer.  Light them and hang them from tree branches for a festive mood!

If you're a little bit country, add some bandanas to a clothes line to add some color to your party!

Love the scrapbook paper covered clothes pins as a food label - and the strainer is adorable!

Cute party favors - stick candy in these for your guest to take home!

Now if only I could find a old truck to add ambiance!! 

I love the display of the corn and the watermelon

Just use some dowels and some styrofoam, a little shredded paper for cover up and you have a cute display!

Would you like S'more?

Take it home or eat it there

Cute variation on s'mores - the s'more pop!
