Election Day Watch Party

We use any excuse to throw a party so try these simple steps for your election day watch party!
INVITES:

Cold call, text message or knock door to door like the politicians do—looking for last minute guests

ATTIRE:

Political satire t-shirts, you can find them on ebay or a red or blue tie

DÉCOR:

Use red and blue bandanas as table toppers or red and blue tablecloths to cover the table – you can cover one table all red and one table all blue BUT you should cover each table half and half to show BIPARTISANSHIP

DRINKS:
  • Serve red & blue cocktails:
  • RED = vodka cranberry juice in a rocks glass with a squeeze of lime garnished with cranberries
  • BLUE = use BLUE Curacao “KER – a – SOW” mixed with vodka, lemon juice and champagne in a coupe glass with the rim covered in sugar crystals
  • One clear color shot – tequila, vodka, gin – because clear is neutral
FOOD:
  • It’s ALL about small plates and big wins!
  • Berry Caprese Salad: Mozzarella Cheese, cherry tomatoes, and blueberries
  • Patriotic snack mix (cheerios, chex cereal, pretzels, dry roasted peanuts, vanilla candy coating, red & blue M&Ms., and red white and blue sprinkles
    • combine the Chex cereal, Cheerios, pretzels and peanuts, melt the candy coating and pour over the dry mix, spread it on a pan, cover with candies, let it cool, break it apart and serve. This snack mix is like politics, salty and sweet!
  • DEEP DISH pizzas
  • CORN DOGS
  • BEEF SANDWICHES
  • Popcorn because 333 Illinois farms grow popcorn which makes Illinois the 3rd largest grower of the product
  • PUMPKIN PIE which was named the State Pie of Illinois in 2015
GAME:

PRINT BLANK BALLOTS TO USE AS SCORECARDS AS THE RESULTS COME IN!

NO MATTER WHAT, YOU ARE GOING TO WIN THE OFFICE OF PARTY PLANNER!
