Easy Labor Day Entertaining Ideas

Now that Independence Day is in the rearview mirror, many Americans already are looking forward to the next big holiday weekend: Labor Day. This is a great opportunity for friends and family to get together and enjoy delicious food and great company, and here at Deli Direct we have the necessary items to improve upon the culinary quality of any Labor Day gathering.

The following are some of our top tips for Labor Day entertaining this year:

Keep Drink Options Simple

Even in early September, the weather is still warm enough that your guests will want to enjoy a nice cold drink, but consider keeping the beverage options simple for efficiency. Other than a cooler full of soda and beer, you could consider setting up ice tea and lemonade stations so people can make their own Arnold Palmers.

Make Snack Foods Abundant

Even more than the main course, people at parties want to nibble on delicious appetizers and snack foods all afternoon, and Deli Direct has an abundance of those available for order. Meat-and-cheese trays always are a party favorite, or you could consider setting out a delicious port wine cheese with crackers or pretzels for dipping. Any cheese spread is an excellent option for a spread full of snacks, and our variety of party dips make for great appetizers, too.

Ensure That Outside Place Settings Are Weatherproof

Assuming you are planning on doing most of your partying outdoors, make sure that your table settings and exterior decorations are able to stand up to the weather. Even a dull wind can blow up table cloths and whip napkins all around, so consider putting together a windproof tablecloth by fastening an oilcloth in place with bungee cords or grommets. Heavier cloth napkins are less prone to blowing away, as well, and they look a lot classier than the paper versions.

Stuff Your Burgers

Everybody loves a good cookout on Labor Day, but this year consider stuffing your burgers with some of our delicious block cheese, some vegetables, or even some bacon bits. While you certainly are welcome to barbecue whatever you want at these types of gatherings, people love a good hamburger—especially when it offers a twist on the traditional version.

Provide Delicious Desserts

Another nice thing about party dips is that they also serve as delicious desserts. Here at Deli Direct, we have a scrumptious Kokomo Key Lime dip, a decadent Chocolate Lovers Dream mix, a White Chocolate Raspberry Swirl dip, and a Sinfully Cin-a-bun dip, all of which pair well with various cookies and fruits and make for delicious after-meal snacks.

The trick to a perfect Labor Day party is keeping things simple so your guests can enjoy a beautiful day outside with family and friends. Make the most of your holiday weekend this year by letting Deli Direct handle at least part of your catering needs with foods that be can mailed directly to your door. Your Labor Day guests will thank you!
