5 Ways to Honor the End of Summer
For many beach lovers, the final weeks of summer also mean the end of sunny days and warm, magical nights at the beach – until next year, at least! Whether you are spending the last moments of your favorite season at the beach or at home, why not celebrate all the fun you’ve had this summer with a special occasion? Here are five of our favorite ideas for saying goodbye to sweet summer:
Seize the day
For many, Labor Day signifies the end of summer. It’s usually the last holiday before the start of the school year, and sunchasers flock to barbecues and beaches to squeeze out those last few drops of sunshine and warm weather. Labor Day falls on a Monday, so why not celebrate the end of summer with a party either at home or at the beach? Invite your friends and family, and make patriotically-themed meals and desserts to really embrace the holiday. Reminisce about your favorite summer memories and talk about plans for next summer, too!
Hit the beach
As a beach lover, we’re sure you’ve thought about how to sneak in a few more beach days before the end of summer. We’re right there with you – so go for it! Pack up the dog, the kids, the friends, and anyone else you want to bring along, and head to the beach for one final hurrah before autumn sets in. Make sure to do all of your favorite activities like looking for shells, playing miniature golf, visiting the boardwalk, playing in the waves, or watching the sunset to honor everything that summer and time at the beach mean to you.

Make a meal
If you’re looking for a low-key, intimate way to celebrate the end of summer, try cooking a refreshing summer meal for family or friends. If you grow your own produce, incorporate some of your fruits and vegetables into your summer dish ideas for a fresh, garden-to-table experience. Consider offering guests a crisp glass of white wine or a signature mocktail that will help them relax and think about all of the fun they’ve had this summer. You could also ask them to bring their favorite dish along, too!
Plan a picnic
If you’re feeling adventurous, plan a picnic at the beach, a favorite park, or another summer spot that holds significance. If you’re having a small gathering with family or friends, bring a few blankets, a basket filled with your favorite summertime foods, and some beverages. You could also add a flower arrangement, themed plates and cutlery, and some cute decor if you want to go all out! If you’re inviting a few different families, encourage them to bring blankets, chairs, and their favorite dish to share, if they’d like. Depending on how much room you have to carry things, you could also set up a few lawn games for guests who want to play. Check out this resource for more ideas for picnicking!
