Election Day is an important day. For most, this day may bring usual hours at work, and possibly long lines at the polls. A nice way to unwind at the end of the day is great food and party ideas for a casual get-together. Use your creativity and resourcefulness to come up with party and gift ideas so that you can share Election Day celebrations with friends and family.
A celebration is not complete without good food. Throw on your favorite apron and start preparing your favorites dishes and food options to share with your loved ones. Many get-togethers like this can benefit from the simplicity of a pot-luck since people will be coming in and out during your Election Day parties. If you want to go really casual, you can never go wrong with pizza. Your favorite local pizzeria or store often has ready-to-eat or take-and-bake pizzas of your choice. Don’t forget the sweets. Throw in some cookies or brownies for the kids… and adults too.
While you wait for the results of the election and gather around the couch watching the television, people love enjoying basic munchies. Make sure to keep chips and salsa, pretzels or other snacks available throughout the night. Red and blue napkins can be placed near the munchies for a nice touch of patriotism. You can continue the patriotic tone with other color selections throughout your party, placing streamers throughout the house, etc.
Don’t forget the reason of the celebration. Remember the great freedoms that we enjoy. Remember the love you share with friends and family. This is a party. Have fun and let loose as your celebrate America.
