Labor Day

An old custom prohibits the wearing of white after Labor Day. The custom is rooted in nothing more than popular fashion etiquette. In actuality, the etiquette originally stated that white shoes were the taboo while white or "winter white" clothes were acceptable. This custom is fading from popularity as it continues to be questioned and challenged, particularly by leaders in the fashion world. "Fashion magazines are jumping on this growing trend, calling people who 'dare' to wear white after Labor Day innovative, creative, and bold. Slowly but surely, white is beginning to break free from its box, and is becoming acceptable to wear whenever one pleases. This etiquette is also compared to the Canadian fashion rule of not wearing green after Rememberance day."

Labor Day Barbecue Party Attire

Evite tells us since Labor Day barbecues typically celebrate summertime, dress in light, colorful clothing. Throw on a western shirt, a straw hat, bright shorts or sandals. Whether you're indoors or out, sunglasses are essential, and bandanas and coral-tinted lipstick make great accents.

You can dress up in Palm Beach pink and aqua, or go more surfer dude style with flip-flops and jams. Or you can dress up in gingham by wearing anything in red-and-white checkers! This can extend to your decorations and tableware as well. Be sure to bring warmer items like sweaters, since it can get a little chilly after sundown.

Clothing and accessories for your Labor Day Barbecue Party outfit:

• Western shirt and jeans
• Straw or cowboy hats
• Bright summer tees
• Flip-flops and sunglasses
• Gingham everything
• Bandanas
• BBQ tools
• Fire extinguisher

Labor Day Barbecue Party Games

Pitch horseshoes and hold three-legged races and reward winners with trophies and ribbons. Another fun Labor Day Barbecue Party tip is to have a pie eating contest! This might get a little messy, so have bibs on hand for your contestants.
