Election Day is one of the most important events of the year, especially when it comes to the presidential election. Host an election party to celebrate American patriotism and the responsibility that comes with casting one's ballot.
Prepare for the election theme party by sending out invitations well in advance. The invitations can also serve as reminders to fellow voters and friends that they should register and vote. One can also host a pre-election fundraising party or dinner to support a candidate.
Dress table linens in an American flag pattern with a mini flag surrounded by flowers as the centerpiece. Use the traditional symbols to represent the party one supports. For example, Republican parties should have tableware with an elephant on it. For a party supporting Democrats, choose tableware with the donkey. Adorn the entranceway with a flag pole, and spread patriotism with red, white, and blue balloons, streamers, and pennant banners. Paste campaign posters from a candidate on the walls, and hand them out as party favors
On election night, screen the election results from each state throughout the night until a winner is declared. You can also watch memorable campaign speeches. Attire can range from cocktail attire to fun patriotic hats, pins, and American flag colors. You can also wear campaign T-shirts from whichever candidate you support. Accessorize with red, white, and blue beads, stickers or leis.
