Patriotic decorations usually dominate Labor Day parties. In addition to stars and stripes, you can add rich oranges, earth tones, yellows, and golds because of the slight chill in the air. If your party lasts into the night, you can add twinkle lights, tiki torches, and candles in hurricane lamps to keep things bright. Use citronella candles to get rid of flying critters.
