Election Party- Easy Food & Decor Ideas

It's finally here. The big day that will finally decide who gets the job. Regardless of who you think should win tonight, a party is a great way to bring people together. So have some friends over and forget about all the hostility and policy talks and not so politically correct facebook posts that we have all endured for way too long. Here are some simple easy election night party ideas to get you started. 
 American food all the way. Mini burgers pre-stacked with veggies.
Hot dogs with some patriotic scrap book paper and twine. Simple and festive. 
Baked potato station. I love this idea. Easy, cheap and makes a big splash. Big a large bag of potato's and throw them in the oven for an hour. Use bowls or cups for toppings. Variety of cheeses, sour cream, bacon bits....you get the picture. 
Mini corn dog muffins with dipping sauce. Get the recipe here
Spinach dip in a bread bowl. Mix sour cream, dry french onion soup mix, chopped green onions and a bag of spinach. Hallow out bread bowl and fill with dip. Use bread pieces for dipping. 
Apple pie caramel apples. That just sounds good. Get the recipe here.
Angel food cake with sliced fruit and whip cream. Use baby mason jars and ribbon. 
Easy decor - rubber bands and a simple bowl.
Be sure to have a state map to fill in when the polls close. You can also print them out and pass out to guests to track. 

Set out an umbrella stand with mini flags inside to welcome guests.
This patriotic streamer can be found at Party City. You can also just use red, white and blue mixed together. Streamers are an easy decor item. Add some red, white and blue balloons for some festive fun. 

If you don't throw a party tonight and totally skip the mass press coverage at least go out and vote. Not because you believe in everything one guy has to say but because we get to do something that most people in the world are still fighting for.
