Bring out the boats and put on the bathing-suits . Its regatta time! The biggest and best regattas happen on Labor Day. Most people decide to venture out to a sandbar in the middle of ocean and others take the weekend for a journey. Some locations that I’ve heard about are the Keys, Key Biscayne, Bal Harbor , Sarasota, and the best are of course those states up north…Thinking Maryland and cannot forget New York. New York is where the original Labor Day celebrations all began. So fire -up those boat grills and start dropping anchor.
Unique cocktails, serious racing and when night falls the party continues on shore.
Dress Code Ideas
Bring on the red, white, and blue. The nautical theme is huge this season. Not only for this great holiday but also for Remembrance Day on the 11th , which is not that far away.
All White Party
The last day of the year for most to wear white…only way to conclude is of course with an all white soiree. So find those gorgeous white dresses and stunning suits and get ready to parade on somebodies lawn. There is no better way to end the summer than with a traditional all white party.
As with most parties, once you choose a theme every detail easily falls into place. The color white captures the carefree, easy essence of summer , purity and and the beginning of a clean slate: from colorless cocktails to plush white pillows for guests to lounge on. White is an incredibly summery hue, looks great against a tan and other bright colors, and is easy to pull off.
Start your party in the early evening and fill your party space with soft candlelight. White candles should be scattered all around the yard to create the warm, sultry vibe .
