Host an Election 2008 Debate Watch Party!

The political season is heating up! Get in on the action and host a party to watch the presidential and vice presidential debates! (Obama and McCain debate Sept 26, Oct 2, Oct 7 and Oct 15.)

Get your friends, co-workers and neighbors together to watch the debates and have some fun. Just make sure no one gets too serious. Remember what they say about talking about politics…

Create a festive, patriotic setting for your party. Welcome guests to the event with a personalized patriotic vinyl banner printed with your custom wording. The banners are great to use during the whole election season too. Let your voice be heard.

Add an awesome entrance to your party with the Americana Arch. The start-spangled arch is lighted and stands 9’ high x 6’ wide. It’s great for taking commemorative photos with too!

Accent your TV, doorway or buffet table with Patriotic Columns. They feature the stars and stripes plus a patriotic message of “God Bless America.” Each column is 7’4” high and 10” deep.

Serve lots of snacks during the debates and serve them on red, white and blue tableware. Cover tables in stars and stripes table covers then add a firecracker centerpiece to the top. Don’t forget some metallic star confetti!

During commercial breaks have trivia contests with questions about each candidate or about past elections. As a prize for the most write answers, hand out a political mask. We carry masks of John McCain, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. For an activity that’s a no-brainer, try the Lady Liberty and Uncle Sam Photo-op Standee. Guests will get a kick out of it and it makes for great keepsake photos.

As a fun door prize, hand out Old Glory Patriotic Skimmers. These hats are reminiscent of old-time political campaigns. Guests will love wearing them around the party and they make a fun patriotic fashion statement.
