Election Night Party Ideas

You can throw a great election party no matter what kind of election it is. Use Punchbowl's party planning site to arrange all the details and send digital invitations too! Great for school, local, state or even national elections, Punchbowl offers a variety of election night party invitations to send to the entire guest list.

Some party ideas for election night include:

  • Setting up a bar for adults or a lemonade stand for kids. Use red, white and blue (or school colors) cups and utencils. Group balloons of the same color on either end of the bar. Make jello shots in patriotic colors and freeze red, white and blue ice cubes.
  • Do your own mock election. Create a ballot and have everyone take a stab at who will win. Hand out a fun American-themed prize at the end.
  • Prepare foods that evoke traditional American cuisine. Mini meatloaf skewers, pigs in a blanket, popcorn and potato bar are always good ideas.
  • Apple pie makes for the perfect election night dessert. Add a little red food coloring into the apple mixture for a pop of color.

For a local, state or national election some Democrat party ideas include using the symbolic donkey as a theme for invitations and decorations. Same goes for Republican party ideas and the elephant. No matter what the opinions of guests may be, get everyone together to celebrate our amazing democracy!
