Happy soon-to-be Labor Day weekend! Whether you’re celebrating the final days of summer with one last barbecue, or getting the kids organized for a brand new school year, we wish you a few minutes of rest and reflection as we head into a new season.

If you’re in need of fun plans and/or tasty recipes, below is a quick guide to making the most of your Labor Day weekend. Enjoy!

SEE – Use some of your free time this weekend to walk around our beautiful neighborhoods and check out our gorgeous open houses. Please note: Our Design Studio and furnished models will be closed on Monday, September 4th in observance of Labor Day.

See our beautiful Birchwood Point furnished model for yourself, open Saturday 9/2 from 11am-3pm.

EAT – Get creative with this Arugula Peach Ricotta and Bacon Pizza recipe, which you can make in the oven or throw right on your grill. Glorious, I know.

This is a little something I like to call, heaven on earth. Image and recipe via Half Baked Harvest.

DRINK – Nothing pays homage to summer more than a mojito garnished with fresh mint and lots of lime. Pour yourself a glass (or two) of this Champagne Mojito recipe and cheers to a great summer!

So long you beautiful summer! Image and recipe via foodiecrush.

SUPPORT – Our hearts are in Texas this week as we watch the victims of Hurricane Harvey face the unimaginable. Please consider supporting those in need by donating time, money or positive thoughts.

In addition to organizations like the Red Cross, many local and national companies are donating all proceeds from the sales of their products to Hurricane Harvey disaster relief funds. We love this “Texas Forever” t-shirt from Magnolia.
