Although this Labor Day may mean staycations instead of vacations, we’re here to help you escape no matter where you are. That’s why we’re sharing fun ideas for taking a (much-needed) break this long weekend…from your very own balcony or backyard. Here’s your perfect Labor Day itinerary, in four easy steps.
1. The Drink
If you’ve never had a cooler before, now’s the time to give one a try. A signature drink of the season, a cooler is a light, crisp, colorful cocktail that’s often served at Summer parties. Our refreshing version of a classic cooler tastes like Summer in a glass.
Birdies Summer Cooler Recipe
1. Combine 1 bottle of rosé, 1/2 cup of fresh lime juice, and 1 cup of grapefruit Italian soda in a large pitcher.
2. Stir in ice and garnish with cucumber slices.
3. Serve chilled.
2. The Snack
It’s hard to resist Summer’s best bad-for-you treats, like fried pickles and funnel cake (guilty as charged). That’s part of the fun, after all. But the warm weather also calls for lighter fare filled with fresh produce. Figs, pomegranate seeds, and edible flowers are key ingredients to the prettiest salad we ever did see.
Fig Salad Recipe
1. Slice figs and cucumbers and arrange on a serving platter.
2. Garnish with a sprinkling of pomegranate seeds and edible flowers.
3. Drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil, dash with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, and season with salt and pepper.
3. The Shoe
All dressed up with nowhere to go? Sounds like the perfect laidback Labor Day to us. Our new Swan slides make any outfit look sleek and…bonus…you’ll love them for lounging. We designed them to be worn day or night, casual or dressy, and they couldn’t be more comfortable. So whether your ideal loungewear means cropped jeans and a t-shirt or a breezy maxi dress, these slides have you covered.
4. The Playlist
Tune in to our latest playlist for chill long-weekend vibes. Jam packed with throwbacks—hello, “Hold On” by Wilson Phillips—and classics from Stevie Wonder and Fleetwood Mac, you won’t be able to stop yourself from singing along.
However you choose to spend it, we hope you safely enjoy the long weekend in style and comfort—with our recipes, playlist, and our newest Birdies slides.
