Our school has the Patriot as our mascot.  Every year we host a Patriots’ Day celebration for all of the grandparents.  I some how, year after year, end up on the Patriots’ Day Committee, sometimes even chair it!  I seem to end up being asked to do the decorations.  It’s fun but challenging coming up with different ideas every year.  As a committee, we get together and choose a theme, and then I go from there.  This year’s theme was “Let Freedom Ring.”  I had LaPressco print this large poster to be hung on a huge chicken-wire frame we use every year.  (By the way, they can print anything for you!)I adorned the bottom with some fringe I found at Hobby Lobby.  I ordered the letter and star balloons from Party City.  And, I decorated the entry ways with long patriotic cloth drapes and patriotic circles.  I was pleased with the end result!

I wanted to share these decorations with you in case you are hosting a Labor Day celebration.  I thought it might give you some ideas.

Speaking of Labor Day!  Gosh there are tons of sales going on now until Labor Day….
