Dawn Carlson and Carol Perry of MAS Design Present a Labor Day Picnic for One and All


This long holiday weekend was brought to you by the blood, sweat, and tears of the hard working men and women of the Labor Movement. You’ll find no Labor Day picnic clichés here. Instead, the creative minds at MAS Design have created an urban picnic with a little something for everyone. Their inviting mix of high/low design elements creates a relaxed but sophisticated picnic setting that will not soon be forgotten. Shipping pallet tables meet high-end dishware meet bright pops of exotic color. The team at MAS Design has playfully celebrated the sentiment of Labor Day in every design detail. So sit back, relax and enjoy this chic but laid-back vibe of Labor Day weekend…you’ve earned it!
