Celebrate Working Hard By Not Working

It might have the word ‘labor’ in its name, but Labor Day is actually a holiday centered around not working. Go figure! Celebrate how hard you’ve been working by relaxing and doing nothing! Labor Day is the last hurrah before the end of summer so embrace it and enjoy the beautiful season we’ve had. The first Monday of September is coming up on us quickly so get ready for the holiday with us.

A gazebo is a great way to enjoy the outdoors without being in the sun all day long. Relax under one of our lovely Amish-built gazebos. It’s easier to appreciate doing nothing when you have an especially comfortable place to do it from!

If you’re throwing a picnic for your friends and family, you need some delicious snacks to keep everyone’s bellies full. These red, white, and blue fruit kabobs are super easy to make and super delicious to eat! Fruit is a great refresher on a hot day, so these are the perfect patriotic treat.

Add some splashes of patriotic color to your decor with a red, white, and blue bandana tablecloth. All you’ll need are some bandanas and a sewing machine. This tablecloth will keep the mess off of your nice polyvinyl outdoor dining set and look stylish while doing it!

Don’t forget about the kids! They’re probably coping with the sadness of summer being over and having to go back to school, so they need cheering up more than any of us. Give them a reason to rejoice and a place to relax with a new playset. Choose from already built sets or design your own to personalize it. Check out our selection here.

If you’re getting ready to close your swimming pool and have some old pool noodles lying around, you don’t have to just throw them away. With a little tape and some craftiness, they become a fun lawn game. Practice your aim as you toss the noodles through rings. Get a little friendly competition going on amongst your family, but not too competitive!

Summer is on its way out but there’s still time to get outdoors and enjoy the beautiful weather and your gorgeous Amish Yard furniture. Does your family have any Labor Day traditions? Share them with us on Facebook!
