What better way to celebrate a long weekend than a backyard BBQ? There’s nothing like firing up the grill and turning on some music to end the season in style. To make your Labour Day cookout even more spectacular this year, try our great at-home BBQ ideas and ensure your event is one for the books!

Set the Mood with Some Tunes

Although you could rely on the cacophony of idle chatter, music is a much better way to set the mood! Plus, it’s so easy with apps like Spotify, which already have perfectly curated playlists. Simply search Labour Day BBQ on Spotify, and you’ll see multiple options. Another great idea is to ask your guests to submit a song before coming and curate it all into a custom playlist. Your guests will love hearing their favourite songs as they mix and mingle.

Create a Drinks Station 

Serve up a signature cocktail but give your guests options with a cute DIY drinks station. You can quickly turn a gardening bench into a drinks bar. Simply wipe it down, add a tall pitcher of your delicious cocktail and a selection of beer. Don’t forget lemonade, punch, and water for the perfect outdoor bar.

Get Your Game On 

Now that you’ve got the tunes and the drinks, it’s time for some fun and games! Adding a few BBQ party games for both kids and adults is a great way to spice things up for your guests and gives them something to do while they’re waiting on the food. Try setting up fun games for people of all ages, such as lawn bowling, darts, cornhole, or twister.

Plan Your Menu 

Of course, you can’t have a Labour Day BBQ without food! You can go with classics like burgers, wings, and hotdogs or put a fresh spin on things like cooking up some Cowboy Caviar or a loaded baked potato salad. Don’t forget to serve a mix of main dishes, side dishes, and desserts like smores brownies or Chocolate-Strawberry Cheesecake.

Keep the Party Going 

Now that you have the perfect plan in place, why not keep the party going well into the night? It’s the ideal time to use your fire pit or buy a propane one. Add some lights and blankets and invite guests to gather around for s’mores and sparklers. It’s the perfect way to end the night.

With these fantastic Labour Day BBQ ideas, you’re sure to be well equipped for the ultimate backyard barbecue party. Just remember the most important thing – have fun! When you’re relaxed and having fun, so will your guests. Besides, you deserve it! If you loved these tips, don’t forget to read  Falconcrest Homes’ blog for more great ideas.
