Labor Day Entertaining on a Budget

Soon the leaves will start changing, the weather will get a little cooler, and the pumpkin spice latte orders will have the Starbucks line wrapped around the corner.  Yes, fall is almost here.

Are you hosting a Labor Day party? Let’s kick off the season in style. It’s time to get your outdoor area ready for entertaining. Here are 3 ideas to help give your space the perfect upgrade before your guest arrive.

First stop, rugs. It’s time to switch out your spring/summer patio rug for nice fall/winter statement rug. You want your rug to be the talk of your party. The Barcelona collection brings a transitional flair to any indoor or outdoor space.

Here’s another option: bring visual “pop” to your outdoor space with the Colours I-O Collection. With fashion-forward styles and bold scale, each design can function in a broad range of contemporary and transitional spaces – both indoor and out. This rug gives you several different colors to play off when you start looking for furniture. The red and brown gives off the perfect fall feel.

Next, what’s a party without accents? Outdoor lights are a must and will bring your space together. As it gets later in the day, you want to make sure you have lighting to keep the party going. Just because its 8pm doesn’t mean the party has to stop. The Savona metal candle lanterns add striking color and modern flair to any space. Nice, right?!

As the night goes on, do you want to keep a more romantic ambiance? This set of two Irresistible lanterns from the Essentials by Connie Post collection boast a modern trellis pattern in metal and emit a beautiful glow, and even more fantastic shadows, when filled with twinkling pillar candles. A dimmer light goes a long way.

What happens when you have an unexpected overflow of guest? You worry about seating, but not this Labor Day because you’ll be prepared with stools for everyone. Did you know the most unexpected accent could also double as a stool? If you’re stumped, we have just the item for you. Check out this silvered stool in a tree-like design that truly blends in with nature for the perfect outdoor accent.

If you’re keeping your outdoor décor simple and would rather your accent chair pop. We’ve got options. Like this colorful woven seagrass stool set on driftwood legs. This chair will make inviting extra guest over for your next Labor Day soiree worry-free.

See, hosting a Labor Day party on a budget is totally doable. With a few décor upgrades you’ll be the talk of the neighborhood all fall & winter long. Have you made any recent outdoor décor upgrades? Head over to our Facebook page and share them for a chance to be featured.
