Summer's last blast: Labor Day party
August 20, 2009
It's time to say goodbye to the summer with a traditional Labor Day party that will bring you and your closest friends and family members together for one last blast.
This holiday usually marks the end of summer (despite what the weather may be like afterwards), so it's a good idea to celebrate the event with barbeque.
One idea to help your party stand out from others is to incorporate some of the pop culture events that have happened in the past three months.
This can include downloading all of the summer music hits to your MP3 player and playing them during the party.
For those who were big reality show fans, they can honor the program Wipeout, one of the summer's biggest hits. Consider making your own extreme obstacle course in the backyard.
In terms of summer movies, consider bringing out some old toys as a way to recognize Transformers 2 and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra being released in theaters.
You may also want to have a memorial for the late film director John Hughes, who died recently and whose legacy includes the movies The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles.
