How to Decorate an Election Party
Planning an Election party is important for someone who is running for public office. By inviting guests, and constituents, to an event, you allow them to become part of your campaign in a fun, and friendly way. Here are some décor ideas that will make your election party one that everyone will remember.
1) Balloons: Decorate your ballroom, hall, or tent with red, white, & blue colored balloons. (Tables, stairs, banisters, & hallways)
2) Photo Shoot with Lady Liberty: Your guests can take a picture with a 5’ Statue of Liberty as a way to commemorate the night.
3) Themed Napkins: Whether Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, or otherwise, use emblems on your napkins for whichever party you are throwing. This allows for a sense of unity under that party name.
4) Garlands: Red, white, & blue streamers and garlands can be draped around tables, bannisters, and walls, to add more color to your party, while filling up a lot of space.
5) Star Spangled Banner: Hanging a banner with a slogan like “We Won!” or “Changing the World!” to give your party a theme, or to show your guests your political goals.
6) Senate Seats: Transform an everyday foldout chair into a lavish seat in Congress by using pillowcases or towels to cover them. You could also mimic the actual number of Republican & Democratic seats at your party by using red and blue covers.
7) Table Skirts: Cover your tables with red, white & blue table skirts or one with stars and stripes for an instant party feel.
8) Flowers: White flowers, as centerpieces at your tables, give your party an air of class. This little addition to your tables may separate your party from others, and show your guests that you’re willing to go the extra mile.
9) Plasticware: For a more relaxed feel, use red, white & blue forks and knives at this function.
10) Napkin Ties: Patriotic colored beaded necklaces can be double as napkin ring holders by tying them around your festive napkins.
11) Lights: Use Christmas lights to wrap around the banisters. This will increase the ambiance of your party.
12) American Flag: Place American flags around your party for added patriotism.
13) Star-shaped Trays: Star-shaped snack trays will help keep the continuity of your theme.
14) Favors: Give out hats or pins so your guests can remember your party, and represent you down the road.
