Celebrate Labor Day Party Food-Truck Style

It’s hard to believe, but Labor Day is just around the corner. Labor Day is the holiday that brings the long hot days of summer to a close. That means it’s time to start planning your big holiday bash! Say farewell to the season in festive style by throwing a Labor Day party that will be remembered for a long time.

Many people choose to grill out or have a picnic to celebrate with friends and family. But why choose the same old simple barbeque when there are so many other fun party options?

Labor Day Party Food-Truck Style


Having Labor Day Party Food-Truck Style is fun, unexpected, and it will make your ordinary event something unforgettable. And with fantastic Smarty's Labor Day Sale, you will easily ensure your Labor Day Party is a hit!

Do you know what I love about food trucks? The menu is so simple. You have a few options to choose from, and you know it's all going to be delicious. As much as I love the idea of hiring a food truck for a Labor Day, that just isn't in everyone's budget. But you don't actually need a food truck! You can easily create that same environment with your cuisine and your serve-ware. So put together a food truck-like menu with your favorite fare and serve it up food-truck style!

Hand-cut fries and signature cocktail

Cocktail hour: Choose a signature cocktail and serve in mini glasses with your hors d'oeuvres. Hand-cut fries and fancy sauce (ketchup, mayo, and garlic powder)...who could refuse? Our mini duo section cups are perfect for serving side-by-side!

Keep your place settings minimal. Napkin, fork and knife, and menu card. We dipped our utensils in tangerine paint to coordinate with the teal and tangerine theme, and placed a sprig of dill at each setting.

Salads: We pick was the All-American with bacon, cheddar, tomatoes, cucumbers, and iceberg, and the Cranberry Walnut with feta and field greens.
