Get maximum use out of your decorations for even non-patriotic holidays. This set of pom poms and paper lanterns ($14) is easy to assemble, and its colors can be mixed and matched for any future party regardless of whether the theme is red, white and blue.
Just because summer’s almost done, doesn’t mean you can’t still break out fun colors and patterns for your party. This 16-piece melamine set ($44) is perfect for outdoor use thanks to its durability and light weight. And there’s a dish for every course, including Labor Day salads, entrees, and desserts.
For a more subtle way to decorate for Labor Day, this pennant banner ($9) is the perfect touch. It features the official print of summer (gingham, like a picnic tablecloth) plus a handful of other patterns to close out the season in style. Then, store it for the winter and break it out again for all of next summer’s parties, too.
Whoever thought of filling balloons with glitter and confetti should win some sort of party-hosting award, in our opinion. These super-cute transparent white balloons ($10) are filled with little red, white and blue stars, perfect if you’re into more subtle decorations.
