Nautical Labor Day Inspiration
“When is Labor Day?” you ask, reluctant to entertain the idea that — yet again — summer must come to an end. Well, you can breathe a sigh of relief (for now), because you’re safe until September 2nd… plenty of time to plan THE end-of-summer bash with all your favorite people in attendance. And we’ll help.
First on our list of Labor Day inspiration is a crisp, nautical-themed luncheon that doesn’t require Ralph Lauren-clad models or even a marina (although if you have access to both we strongly recommend that you incorporate them). The secret to a sophisticated nautical theme is to invest in glassware and decor accents that add seaside charm to your setting sans paper and plastic. And a smart invitation never hurts either.
