We Have A Guest! - Labor Day DIY Party Tutorial Part II

Yesterday guest poster Sophie Miller shared with you her great ideas for planning an end of summer Labor Day Party.  Now she is back to discuss the food.  My favorite part!

What to Make?

Too many times have I gone to a party with the same old food; fried chicken, spaghetti, hamburgers, hotdogs, etc.  Why not try a little something different.  Something that requires a little more effort.

While there is nothing wrong with pasta salad, fried chicken, baked beans, or rolls, people know when you put forth the time and energy to make a party memorable or when you’re just taking the easiest route out.

Dishing up with Delish Appetizers:

Buffalo Potato Skins

Tater skin filled with cheese, green onions, chicken, with Frank’s Buffalo Sauce drizzled over the top


Tomato slices topped with fresh mozzarella and a single basil leaf

"Tacos Gone Walkin’’

From bottom to top, layer ground beef, black olives, sour cream, guacamole, refried beans, and cheese all in a casserole pan. Bake in the oven. Once the cheese melts, it should be finished!

Spinach and Ricotta Eggrolls

Just roll and bake! Here is the recipe, courtesy of

Supplying the essentials:

Don’t forget about your disposable cutlery, napkins, and Red Solo cups!  It may be a good idea to get bulk when it comes to party supplies, since summer is coming there is no telling how many times you’ll have people over, sitting outside, and enjoying the sun.  Washing dishes just becomes cumbersome and a hassle, so go with disposable. Eco-friendly isn’t a bad idea either!

A Labor Day party will be a huge hit with all the invitees.  While many have events scheduled for the weekend, there are also plenty of people who will not be doing anything. If you don’t have any plans yourself, this is the perfect opportunity to throw a modest bash and make this Labor Day one to remember!  God Bless the USA!


  1. Mmmm! Sounds good! After reading those appetizers I think I'm gonna try to get an invitation to your party, Sophie- Haha!! Thanks for sharing this post and the recipes. Happy Labor Day! :)
