It’s hard to believe that Labor Day is almost here, like many of you I feel like it was just March! In both the United States and Canada, we celebrate Labor Day on the first Monday in September to honor and recognize the contributions of laborers. Most of us only think of Labor Day as the perfect occasion for one last clambake, beach day, or canoe trip. Whatever you choose to do, please take the long weekend as permission to relax. At Piper and Dune we have lots of fun games for you to choose from, check them out here. For those late nights under the stars grab our Moose blanket, and do some stargazing. For others, your idea of a good time might be reading a new book or stocking up on groceries. We have some great cookbooks pick one up to help you prepare your Labor day menu.
While this year was different in many ways, one thing that remains is that the end of summer came much sooner than we'd like it to. Have you texted a friend “where did the summer go?” This year, allow yourself to indulge in the season's finest foods and activities before we go back into hibernation mode. During your three-day weekend, celebrate summer's last hurrah with some juicy watermelon, buttery corn on the cob, and some fresh seafood if you can. Fizzy cocktails and drinks are highly encouraged this go round, we all deserve it! Pick up a few of our silicone unbreakable cups for your picnic or our rocks glasses to make your picnic complete. If you happen to need recommendations, here’s a couple of our family favorites - for adults only, please!
This Lime Rosé Spritzer is sure to please since it’s super light and refreshing.
Or, here’s a recipe for a mojito* that is sure to satisfy just about any guest- plus it might make use of the abundance of mint you might have in your garden. Be sure to pick up a muddler at piperanddune.com; these make great hostess gifts too!
Enjoy your time with family and friends, happy Labor Day!
