Labor Day Weekend Menu Ideas

Backyard Summer Patio Party Table Set Up | Making plans for the last unofficial weekend of summer? Whether you're hoping to throw an al fresco dinner party, host a backyard barbecue or head to the park to soak up some sun, I've got some Labor Day weekend menu ideas for you.

Patio Dinner Party

This is the full menu from the dinner party Sando & I threw back in June. Invite a few friends over and enjoy an evening reminiscing about all the fun you've had this summer. Over a couple bottles of nice wine of course.

Backyard BBQ

Mix up your traditional barbecue spread with a few of these seasonal dishes.

Afternoon picnic

My favorite spread to serve at a picnic is a slew of snacks.

Holiday Monday Brunch

When there's no work or school on a weekday, you must celecrate with an epic morning meal.

  • Iced Lavender Mint Matcha Lattes
  • Fun Frosted Cinnamon Rolls
  • A brunch board - It's kind of like a cheeseboard but with brunch fixings. Lay out things like smoked salmon, sliced avocado, cream cheese, ricotta, fresh fruit and other similar items on a large dish alongside an assortment of bagels and let folks go to town.
