The AG Millworks team would like to wish you a Happy Labor Day! In celebrating all the hardworking individuals on this special day, we encourage you to take advantage of your beautiful outdoor space and throw a party! Being surrounded by friends and family is the best way to celebrate the holiday.
When hosting a party, it is important that you do some tidying up and prepare your beautiful home so that it can shine in its best light. Although your Labor Day party will be held on your luxurious patio, it is equally important to tend to other areas of the home. Start by clearing your yard of any toys or debris, and give it a good trimming. While you are working in the yard, don’t forget to cut and display some fresh flowers throughout your home and patio.
Since your bi-fold patio doors will be secretly tucked away, allowing the outdoors and indoors to blend together, you will want to tidy up the inside of your home as well. Display healthy snacks for guests who are walking through your beautiful patio doors into the outdoor space.
After all the tidying up is complete, you can finally start prepping the patio. Start by preparing your outdoor bar and grill. If you have regrettably not touched your grill all summer long, give it a good cleaning before the party begins. When choosing which delicious items to toss on the grill, think about what your guests will most enjoy. Consider trying one new creative recipe along with your tried and true barbecue favorites for Labor Day celebrations.
Now, it is time to decorate. Since your barbecue will likely be concluding during the evening hours, you will want to set up exterior lighting. Spread strings of holiday lights around the perimeter of your yard for a beautiful and relaxing atmosphere. You will also want to put out citronella candles for both additional lighting and bug repellent. Lastly, add some colorful decorations to your patio, and make for a memorable Labor Day!
Most importantly, make an effort to enjoy your party just as much as your guests. While you may be inclined to tidy up and clean throughout the party, it is important that you have the opportunity to celebrate Labor Day as well.
The AG Millworks team hopes you enjoy your Labor Day celebrations safely and responsibly! Happy Labor Day! Click the Match Me with a Dealer button to get started building or remodeling the entertaining home of your dreams!
