As Labor Day is fast approaching, it’s time to start thinking about one last party! Since it’s a fashion faux pas to wear white after Labor Day, what better time for an all-white party?!
So gather up all your friends and get ready to transform your backyard. It’s time to throw the perfect Labor Day White Party!!
After you invite all your guests with the perfect all white invitations, the first thing you need to do is decorate. Make sure you have as much white as possible! Grab some white streamers and white (clear) Christmas lights, or floating Oro pool lights (shown below). Change up your furniture from old to new, and add our Apex Daybed or Park lane sectional (shown below) to your backyard to really spruce it up!
You can use white table cloths and chair covers, and even float a giant inflatable swan in the pool! This is also the perfect party to have candlelight from white candles in all shapes and sizes.
Don’t forget to hang some white pom poms and flowers around for an extra elegant touch, and make sure you have white plates, cups, and eating utensils!
Now for the food! There are so many possibilities for all white party foods, especially if you’re willing to be a bit creative! For the main dishes, why not try a white cheddar mac ‘n cheese, a chicken Alfredo pasta, or grilled scallops? For your sides, you could include things like white rice, cauliflower, mashed potatoes, and even white asparagus!
Drinks are a great way to add some fun to any pool party. For your guests who are over 21, there are so many adult beverages you can make. White Russians are a great choice! You can also offer white chocolate martinis, white wine, white sangria, and pina coladas. For your party goers who won’t be drinking alcohol, you can make non-alcoholic pina coladas or vanilla shakes – or milk and coconut water!
Desserts are always a really important part of any good party spread! Anything with white chocolate works for an “all white party”! You could have a white chocolate fountain with all kinds of sweet treats for dipping, like marshmallows, hunks of angel food cake, and bananas. You can also make white chocolate dipped pretzels or some white chocolate mousse, and don’t forget to make the white cookies and cupcakes with white cream cheese frosting!
Wardrobe: Well, obviously you want to wear as much white as possible. Pull out some extra white shirts for guests who may have forgotten about the white rule. You could also supply white party hats or white flip flops for everyone. Another fun idea is a Toga Party and have your guests arrive wrapped in white!
Music sets the mood, and is a fun way to really develop a party theme. Make a playlist including all your favorites, like Barry White, Average White Band, Jack White, White Snake… well, you get the idea.
Now you’re off to a great start in planning your Labor Day White Party! Have fun!
