Barbecues are a little overdone, don’t you think?

After all, they keep you out in the direct summer sun and expose you to even more intense heat than the Southeastern season already subjects you to. What’s more, they’re so traditional that they’re practically boring, so why not try something new for Labor Day?

In other words, if you’re hoping to find inspiration for your upcoming Labor Day patio party, you’ve come to the right place. Here are our top three recommendations:

An extended Sunesta screen provides shade for a pool-side patio in the Southeast

Nothing Beats a Beachy Brunch

Nestled neatly along the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts, the Southeastern region sees many beachgoers in nearly every state. But if you live further inland, you probably have fewer beach-related events to attend.

So why not change it up with your patio?

Try infusing your enclosed patio with seaside ambiance, complete with seashell-inspired decor and slightly salty cocktails. And if you’re not keen on the idea of laying sand on the floor (we don’t blame you), opt instead for a straw or bamboo mat that will still cater to the aesthetic.

Plus, if you’re ready to open your backyard entertainment venue to more sunshine, simply retract your custom Sunesta screen! Otherwise, keep it lowered for a cool, shady, and beachy brunch.

Anybody Interested in an Evening Soiree?

If the daytime proves too hot for hosting, we recommend you wait it out until the evening arrives in your neighborhood.

Your personalized patio screen will still help deflect the remaining sunshine and keep you cool while you string twinkling lights or paper lanterns around the ceiling, thereby imbuing the space with starry wonder.

Otherwise, if you want to kick the class up a notch, ask everyone to attend in white — not only will this look more sophisticated, but you can all enjoy your favorite seasonal items before the “no white after Labor Day” fashion rule goes into effect.

Oh, and don’t forget the tealight candles for your tables!

Picnic with a Little Extra Protection

Picnics might be the perfect outdoor outlet for a midday meal, but there’s no rule stating that they must be in the grass. So, why not pull it back inside your patio?

After all, picnics are as classic as barbecues but leave more room for flexibility, meaning you can adapt the theme according to your Labor Day preference.

Particularly in the sweltering Southeastern heat, your guests might find that their bite-sized sandwiches, fruit bowls, and chilled glasses of punch are more enjoyable when kept 20 degrees cooler behind a screen.

Additionally, the fabric of your choice will help bar any bugs from entering your entertainment space!
