I can hardly believe summer is coming to a close. It was definitely a whirlwind for me for so many reasons. Moving from Chicago to Miami. Being pregnant and preparing for this little girl to arrive. Tons and tons of travel. And I wake up and it’s almost Labor Day! Life, why are you going by so fast?! Let’s combat that and host an end-of-summer dinner party, shall we?
Invite some close friends, make it intimate or make it big. Make it a celebration of friendship and loved ones, just because. Have everyone bring their favorite summer dish. Get fresh flowers from your local farmer’s market or even your local grocery store. Splurge on a nice French rose (the quintessential summer drink). Light some candles. String some lights on your patio. Create a theme. Or don’t. Bring the indoors outdoors. And make the last of summer the best of summer by creating memories around a table, with your closest people, during one of the best seasons of the year.
And maybe the below Labor Day tablescapes will inspire you to slow down and enjoy these last few moments of summer we have left.
