Tips for Your Labor Day Party at the Lake!

Image
The unofficial end of summer, Labor Day is THIS weekend! Many of you are probably planning parties for your family and friends here at the Lake. While you have probably already sent the invites and planned the menu, there is a lot that needs to be done leading up to your party. Your favorite construction company at the Lake of the Ozarks has tips for ensuring your end of summer bash is a success without losing your sanity!


Get an Official Head Count  The day before your Labor Day Party, you should make sure that you know just how many people are going to attend. Someone may have mentioned they were planning on coming a few weeks ago but have since changed their plans. Having an official head count will help you know how much seating you need and much food to prepare. If you are asking people to bring a side dish, make sure that both of you know what they are bringing.
