perfect labor day party

I am going to be incredibly cliché in declaring I cannot believe Labor Day is this Monday.

Totally snuck up on me this year.

We are planning a small shindig, and I am mixing classy with lowbrow, cocktail party with casual barbeque.

We really just want a low key comfortable thing – friends over grilling and chilling. A couple friends can only come for a short time, so I decided to split it up and have a little cocktail thing beforehand. Hey, any chance I can dress it up and use my shiny chic accessories, I will take it.

I also wanted another reason to make those stuffed caperberries.

I am also excited to use that vegan goat cheese for these:

apricot goat cheese fig crisps

 

There will be cocktails and nibbles at what I could probably call the pre-funk?

Then we head outside, kick off the shoes, pull up a comfortable chair and fire up the grill.

Because I keep looking at photos of these, cannot stop thinking about them, have wanted to make them again since the first two times we had them:

wiener wraps

Yes, our Labor Day party will feature wiener wraps. I am so excited for them.

 

and it has been too long since we had grilled jalapeno poppers:

 

Are you doing anything on Labor Day or over the three day weekend?
