Free Invitations
Print free Labor Day party invitations from reincarnationsart.com. The printable collection also includes a free wine label, food tag, cupcake wrappers and more.

Low Cost Dessert
Save time and money by serving a festive dessert. Summer is the prime season for eating food on a stick so why not serve Dessert Kabobs at your Labor Day party? Thread low cost foods like strawberries, blueberries and pre-made pound cake onto skewers for a super fast, fun treat.

Nix the Steak
Feeding steak to the masses won't be cheap. Instead select summer staples like hot dogs and hamburgers. No one will notice you opted for the budget-friendly fare.

Shop the Sales
Grocery stores will mark down Labor Day necessities such as chips and soda. You may even find great deals on crowd-pleasers like watermelon and baked beans.

Pull Out the Yard Games
Before you pack up your croquet set or bocce ball for the winter pull them out one last time. Your trusty yard games will make for great free entertainment at your Labor Day party.
