There’s no denying that 2020 has been a difficult year that’s left our country divided. Throw an election on top of that and wow! However, why not do your part to bring people together by hosting a non-partisan luncheon to encourage your friends and family to educate themselves before they go vote! Take a look at this creative Election Party and gather inspiration to empower your community to make a difference!
With just a few weeks left before the big Presidential Election, there’s still time to make an impact and encourage those around you to get out and vote. Photographer Victoria Petrovsky decided to gather friends for a lovely Voting Luncheon to increase awareness about the importance of voting. Join me as we take a look at these fun decor details, but first, grab our Party Planning Checklist and take notes so you can plan a simple gathering of your own!
Election Party Table Setting & Decor Ideas
Whether you end up hosting a voting party before the election, or an Election Party the night of November 3rd to watch polling results come in, this luncheon is full of decor ideas to inspire you! If you’re going for a non-partisan theme (which we love for its inclusivity), consider a classic black and white color theme like Victoria used here (or alternatively, go totally patriotic with red, white and blue).
The table was set with lovely black charger plates topped with white dinner plates, a “Don’t Forget to Vote” custom place card and a donut with the word VOTE on top. Stemless wine glasses with a VOTE cocktail pick were also at each place setting.
The centerpiece was a lovely arrangement of white flowers and black berries in a black vase designed by Pavan Floral, flanked by black candlesticks on each end.
At the end of the dinner table and between the dessert and food tables, hung a festive black balloon banner made up of the words VOTE. Designed by Sharp Balloons, the VOTE balloon banner was hung between two beautiful matte gold balloon bouquets.
Voting Party Food and Dessert Inspiration
Guests enjoyed a delicious lunch catered by Sarah Kleinknecht of Active Palate that included seasonal fall salads, charcuterie boards and roasted root vegetables. And how cute are the breadsticks served in those custom paper cones? Such a clever little detail!
For dessert, each guest had a pencil cookie with their name on it made by Janice Wong, and these awesome looking “Don’t Forget to Vote” Rice Krispie treat pops.
After great discussion with friends, these Voting Party guests actually sat down and filled out their ballots and then walked together to drop them off. How cool is that?! If that’s not possible in your county, perhaps you can spend time during lunch discussing the important issues, reviewing the choices and propositions on your ballot or deciding where and when you will go to vote.
I hope you loved this non-traiudional “party” as much as I did! There is always a reason to celebrate, and in our great nation, the right and privilege to vote is always a fabulous reason to throw a party! Share this post with your friends and encourage them to get out and vote this year!
