Hooray for Labor Day: Chips & Dip Style

Happy Labor Day: Throw a Party, Chips + Dip Ideas! #tostitoslaborday

Labor Day weekend is here! It’s the last hurrah of summer and the start of the new school year as we slide into fall. My suggestion? No ‘labor’ing at all. Instead, grab your neighbors, friends, and family for a Labor Day party: chips and dip style! I’m sharing a few inspiration party images to get those juices flowing for your own “Hooray for Labor Day” party! So put a pause to laboring on Monday and throw a party!

Keeping with the Americana theme of Labor Day, I created a simple yet stylish tablescape for the holiday. Red and white striped fabric made the perfect table covering and allowed simple white dinner plates to really pop. Tall glass vases were a unique and unusual “chip holder” for a fun twist. Each guest received a one-of-a-kind dip at their place setting! TOSTITOS® Original Restaurant Style Tortilla Chips are my go-to favorite! They are a hit with my friends and I love surprising them at parties with unique chip-and-dip combos.

My dips included Spicy Pimento, Onion & Blue, Feta & Dill, and Apple Salsa! Everyone loved the unique twists to classic dips. It was fun to get experimental in the kitchen! I placed each dip in a small martini-style dish and set one on each plate for a pretty place setting. I encourage you to get creative and add some pizzazz to your favorite dips. TOSTITOS Original Restaurant Style Tortilla Chips are a great complement for bold, fun dips. You can pair these chips with any dip of your choice to ensure there is something for everyone. I also love the TOSTITOS brand dips for quick + ready-to-eat options.

The tablescape was simple! Everyday white dinner plates were topped with a red and white patterned appetizer plate. The table covering was a thin red and white stripe. Blue star plates added a pop of Americana and fun “Hooray for Labor Day!” flags adorned the table. I printed off little labels for the dips so my guests knew what they were enjoying! The centerpiece was a large martini glass with the classic “7 Layer Dip”.
