Convention & Election Night Watch Parties

You can also use this look when planning a political convention or election night watch party! In full disclosure, I am an unabashed political wonk. My husband and I both worked at the White House many administrations ago after stints working for congressmen and senators from our respective states. We have an unblemished voting record and proudly wear our “I voted” stickers all day long.  We are addicted to everything politics including watching every possible moment of the televised coverage of both political party conventions. And yes, we almost always invite friends over to watch with us. One year we ran into some friends while casting our presidential ballots and invited them over for what we hoped would be an exciting post election celebration.  Little did we know they voted for the other candidate. Needless to say, our celebration was dialed back significantly.

Even though today's political conventions seem very scripted and lack the intrigue of conventions years ago, we still get choked up when all the balloons and confetti drop from those super high ceilings in the convention centers. The excitement in the halls seem to jump out of the TV and infiltrate our family room.  So get into the spirit and order your patriotic invitations and party supplies today! The more red, white, and blue the better.
