Make this Labor Day celebration special with these awesome party food recipes, party decor ideas, and cocktail recipes to send off summer in style. I may have mentioned to you all a time or two how much I love to plan for parties, and Labor Day is no different. Getting friends and family together for celebrations and holidays is one of my favorite things to do.
That’s why I decided to compile my favorite summer cocktails, patriotic decor, and party ideas suitable for Labor Day in this post.

This easy crock pot recipe makes a cheesy, slightly spicy addition to any party food spread. I personally prefer my jalepeno popper dip with a bag of Frito’s to go along with it. The bowl is always completely scraped every time I cook this dip making it the best easy slow cooker recipe for a crowd.
