Looking to keep things nonpartisan for your party?  Unite your group with the steadfast red, white and blue.  Mini flags, balloons, streamers and other patriotic decorations can spruce up your space and get any crowd excited.  

Prefer to make things more bi-PARTY-san?  Allow your group to display their party loyalty with donkey and elephant themed decorations.  Coasters, cookies, napkins, plates, balloons and party hats are sure to allow everyone to show their party loyalty.

It’s fall so be sure to incorporate all the great fall beers, ciders and cocktails in your drink menu.  Signature cocktails are a great way to create a lasting impression on your guests and bonus points if you have a patriotic one.  If you don't have time to create a signature cocktail but still want to make your drink festive you can serve a "hilar-ita" or a "trump-tini".  No matter what you decide, as long as you keep your bar stocked your guests will be happy.   


Election night is long and everyone loves a photobooth.  There are endless possibilties when it comes to election props such as, presidential face masks, voting themed props, patriotic props and a variety of other election props to choose from.  If a photobooth isn't enough to keep your guests occupied then peruse the two games below to add some humor and interaction to your party.
