As summer’s end approaches, you might be thinking about how to wrap up the season with a Labor Day celebration. Even though it is still a month away, planning a perfect party takes some forethought and an eye for detail.
Traditionally, Labor Day festivities include greasy food, paper plates, and a healthy dose of t-shirts and shorts. But what if your ideal social gathering is a little lighter and airier than a down-home barbeque and a game of horseshoes?
Consider upgrading that age-old American tradition to a tasteful afternoon tea, complete with finger sandwiches, champagne, and of course, delicate summer teas. In order to prepare your home and outdoor space for this type of social gathering, you’ll need to create an atmosphere of elegance and sophistication, while maintaining a warm and inviting feel.
Decorative vases and serveware are a great way to create a stylish, yet subdued canvas for the artful placement of your food and beverage selection.
