Our favorite political party is an Inauguration Party! Here are a few tips for hosting a grand old party of your own (coupled with some fashionable patriotic looks)!
Let your affair be a space for celebrating democracy and the opportunities to successfully move the country forward in the coming years. Be mindful that not every guest may agree with the choice the majority made. Keep the partisan rhetoric to a minimum and allow for a celebration for all.
A two party system
Allowing two parties – you and them — to plan your inauguration affair engages your guests well in advance of the event. Invite your guests to cast their ballots for appetizers, desserts and signature sips! To keep controversy at bay, last make sure there are – read my lips — No Hanging Chads!
The key to a successful memorable affair are the customized aspects. Sure, you can go to the local party store and get your standard red, white and blue hats and napkins, but what makes the event something to talk about is being thoughtful about representing the overarching theme. Maybe feature gourmet fondue to represent the melting pot we’ve truly become. Cap the night off with “purple mountain majesty’s” in dessert form like the featured macaron tower or the patriotic pie.
Encourage your guests to wear attire that’s patriotic, but not cliché. Have a ballot box for voting. Best look gets the “award”! People love a good contest. We love the looks in the posted photographs.
