A DIY Labor Day You Can't Miss

For Labor Day, Americans honor the labor movement and contributions that hard workers have made to the strength, well-being, and prosperity of our country.

So... what does that mean for us women?
Ladies, it's a time to celebrate and embrace all our hard work. Can I get an AMEN! Let's revamp, and make Labor Day all about fun! Here are a few easy, quick, and cheap ways to brighten up any basic BBQ or dinner on Labor Day.

Nice, right? If you don't have Coca-Cola bottles laying around, mason jars are a quick flip for these. Buy some vinyl table cloths at the Dollar store, and these little sparkler decors. Add a snack mix inside, and it's a perfect centerpiece...that's edible!

Look, you don't even need to PAINT the cans. Simply put construction paper wrapped around them with the ribbon. All, again, Dollar store. But this is a super cute way to separate party utensils!
Did you know mason jars can be so fun??? You could do waters with lemon slices in them, pink lemonade, ice tea for the tea drinkers, ice water, ice water with cucumber, strawberries in lemonade. Obviously this was a freaking brilliant idea! You don't even need the metal tub it's in. Use a cooler filled with ice. And if you really want it not to look like a cooler, then take one of those vinyl table cloths, red/white/blue cuts of each or of one color, and tape it around. Be creative! Heck, you can even use a inflatable kiddie pool!
This one I picked because of the cupcakes. Everything here is a great idea. The banner can be made from construction paper of blue or red, and use a white chalk to make stars. The Jones soda is clever. BUT the stars on sticks??? Oh, come on. That was impressive. See how it just makes everything POP! Easy to do. You can buy a bag of  craft pip cleaner and cut out stars from red/white/blue construction paper. Use markers for fun creative designs. This is a fantastic way to add PIZZAZZ!
THREE fruits, wooden skewers, and BAM! American Flag. Usually you see people make the cakes. But why? Make it simple! I'm definitely going to do this one!

Hope everyone was able to get their creative Labor Day juices going. I hope to do all of these suggestions, and beef up our annual BBQ for Labor Day. Maybe it seems silly, even if it's just for your family, but these are the memories your family will remember!
Thanks for visiting me this week, everyone! Keep working hard in our country!
 I'll see ya again soon!!
