DIY: Labor Day Holiday Weekend

The Labor Day Holiday Weekend is upon us and this means three days to enjoy doing the things we love most as we celebrate the fruits of our labor.   Most of you will either embark on a road trip, host a barbecue or a pool party, have a picnic, or just simply relax.   Whatever you decide to do this Labor Day Holiday Weekend, here are our top picks of simple design ideas to help you create a beautiful and memorable holiday.

Table Setting Design Ideas

Here’s an unusual idea for decorating your picnic table with flowers.  All you need for this simple DIY is some old used wine or beer bottles, some light rope, and your favorite flowers.  We like this idea because you can have an assortment of flowers and hang the bottles at different lengths to give it a little something extra.


Patio table setting ideas


Spice up your umbrella patio table this Labor Day Holiday Weekend with this simple design idea of hanging votive candles from under the umbrella.  You may also use small mason jars or tea light candle holders to create this type of mood lighting.


Labor Day Table Setting


This beautifully decorated picnic table is our top pick here at simple design ideas  to draw inspiration from to decorate your own table this Labor Day Holiday Weekend.  Red, white, and blue are traditionally the main colors associated with the holiday.  This table top does a great job at incorporating all these colors by using a larger white table-cloth draped over the entire table with a smaller striped red/white table-cloth placed on top width-wise.  The blue flower vase adds a little splash of the third color in a very subtle way.  The added bonuses in this picture?  The red bench, American Flags, and the vintage truck!!!   Absolutely stunning!
