Five Labor Day Tablescape Ideas

Labor Day is the official end to Summer. As we say goodbye to parties on the beach, backyard barbecues, and the endless hours spent lounging by the pool, let’s celebrate this last hurrah in style with summertime-inspired tablescapes.

The traditional red, white, and blue themed table setting symbolizes this American holiday set aside for working men and women. The tablescape pictured above is embellished with fresh cut flowers in mason jars, place cards cut into the shape of stars, and fresh lemonade set atop “Old Glory”.

The view is centerstage here, so a “less is more” tablescape is used to compliment this setting. A striped table cloth in summertime colors is the perfect backdrop for this simple table setting.
