  1. Using a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Combine water and sugar to create a simple syrup. Stir until the sugar has dissolved. Let it simmer for about 10 minutes until it thickens slightly. Pour in a cup and chill.
  2. After the sugar is chilled, combine the lemon juice, seltzer water, and the blueberry juice. Then add the simple syrup to taste. (Use less simple syrup if you prefer a more tart taste.) Serve over ice, with fresh blueberries.

Step 2: Pick a Labor Day Pool Party Theme

Set the mood with candles, patio lighting or torches. If mosquitos are an issue, don’t forget the mosquito netting or citronella. For an added splash, scatter a few festive touches around the spa. Decorate your backyard with red, white and blue. Encourage everyone to come dressed in the theme by wearing patriotic colors. For little extra fun, have a contest for the most outrageous attire. Upon arrival greet your guest with a patriotic hat or button. Regardless if you’re seeking shelter from the sun, or just jazzing up the backyard, embellish your patio with outdoor furniture.

Step 3: Party Games & Activities

Everyone loves party games and activities, so make sure you have plenty planned for everyone to participate in the family fun. Here are a few favorites for everyone to enjoy:  potato sack races, balloon toss, badminton, croquet, frisbee, and volleyball.
