Decorating for Labor Day

Labor Day Wreath

1. Hang a Patriotic Wreath

Changing out the wreath on your front door is one of the easiest and fastest ways to decorate your home seasonally. A lovely wreath enhances curb appeal. This wreath is a great example because not only is it a great choice for Labor day, but it can also be used at 4th of July and Christmas.

If you want to further enhance the look of this holiday wreath, add a removable bow. A ribbon can be changed out from time to time to breathe new life into this spectacular wreath.

2. Add Lights to A Tree or Topiary

While we are talking about decorating the front of your home for Labor Day, let us talk about one of our favorite ways to decorate seasonally. Outdoor trees and topiaries are a beautiful addition to your entryway year-round but there is one easy way they can be transformed for the holidays.

Simply choose a strand of red, white and blue LED lights and wrap them around your topiary and tree. If you want to take it to the next level, add a bit of patriotic ribbon around the base or add a fluffy bow to the top of your topiary.
