Ideas For An End-of-Summer BBQ

  The end of summer is almost here. It's sad, but true. To send summer out with a bang, why not throw an end of summer or Labour Day party? We plan to.

  Here's some ideas that are inspiring me to make our party just a bit more festive.

Don't you just love the look of bunting? I don't know what it is, but it's just so darned cute! I'm thinking of whipping some up with some colourful handkerchiefs from the dollar store.


Continuing with the handkerchief theme, I might make a table runner to match. :) 


And use them as napkins with the cutlery in mason jars. The mason jars can also be used as glasses. 


Adding some mason jars with brightly coloured flowers would be pretty. 


And because our meal is a pot luck, I'm thinking of making some of these so people can label what they brought.

I'm all inspired to party now! How are you ending your summer?
