Get together with a group of friends, whip up some delicious treats and cocktails and celebrate in style.


  • Election Day Cupcakes

    These elephant and donkey cupcakes are so fitting for an Election Day party. Not only do they look cute, but they also taste delicious. Whip up these drool-worthy cupcakes at your Election Day party with fondant democrat and republican symbols and fluffy butter cream frosting.

  • Red. White and Blue Star Cookies

    These red, white and blue star sugar cookies are a great dessert to serve at your election party. These cookies are also extremely simple to make. All you need is sugar cookie dough and different colored icing and sprinkles. Mix and match and decorate to your liking!

  • Drink Stirrers

    These “vote” drink stirrer printables found on Etsy are the perfect final touch to your Election Day cocktail. A great cocktail is needed after the anxiety of who the next president will be has passed and people’s emotions have set in. Add a couple cherries and blueberries to the toothpicks to keep with the patriotic theme!

  • Patriotic Party Decorations

    When throwing a party it is important to remember to keep with the theme not only with your food, but also with your décor. Decorate your house with some red, white and blue flowers, table cloths, confetti and these great wall hangings. These patriotic wall hangings are a great DIY craft and hang so beautifully. They are a simple paper project that adds an instant pop of color to a blank wall.

  • Election Coasters

    These election coasters are so adorable and a great décor item for an Election Day party. Guests may not notice right away that even your coasters match the party’s theme! If you have cork boards that go untouched, try making your own coasters with printed images instead.

  • Confetti Launchers

    POP! Once the new president has been announced set off these confetti launchers with your guests. Even though some will be disappointed in the results, everyone will be proud to celebrate the new leader of our country!
