Top 3 must-haves for your end of summer party

Date Created: 08/08/2011

Top 3 must-haves for your end of summer party. Labor Day will be here before you know it and many people around the country will be toasting to the end of summer and showing off their party planning skills for one last time this season. While you may think you have everything after an entire summer's worth of gatherings, an end of summer party requires a few unique accents that will ensure that you give the season the send-off it deserves!

1. Fruits and veggies. It will be a while before you and your friends can enjoy the tastes of summer in all their glory, so be sure to design appetizers and your menu around your friend's summer favorites. Set up a huge platter with sliced strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, melon and some mild cheeses. A yogurt dip is always a good choice, and you can save some money by choosing some flavored Greek yogurt that works perfectly as a tasty spread. Use some party tableware and imprinted napkins to make cleanup a bit easier, and use a party centerpiece to instantly jazz up your table spread.

2. Outdoor games. This will probably be your last chance to enjoy your favorite outdoor games, so encourage your friends to bring theirs. Bocce, ladder ball, badminton and volleyball are sure to be hits with your guests and they can be set up in no time. One way that everyone can get a piece of the action is by pairing up into teams and recording their scores from each game. You can then tally up the points to see which group was the best all-around or at each individual match, and you can hand out prizes and party favors to the participants.

3. Bright and beautiful decorations. In a few months you'll have to conform to the colors of the fall holidays, so let your personality shine through for your summer party. Use some vibrant mylar balloons, streamers and confetti to put your personal stamp on the celebration. You can also hang up a personalized banner with a special message of your choice and use some decorative lighting around your patio or game areas to help your festivities last long into the evening.

With a few of these summer party supplies, delectable cuisine and plenty of activities, your summer send-off will help you indulge in the fleeting pleasures of the season.
