Come Party With Me: Election Night — Invite

November 4th, 2008 is possibly the most important day of the year. Since it's such a significant night, no one should sit at home nervously waiting for the next president to be announced. I've joined forces with LibertySugar and together we're hosting a party at a neighborhood saloon called Elixir. Owner and master mixologist H. Joseph Ehrmann has assured me election coverage will be aired. This week I'm sharing my party plan, so you can steal my ideas and host your own political party! The big day is only a week away: invites need to be sent as soon as possible. To see how I made these email-able invites,


To make a similar invite you need the following supplies:

  • image of the American flag
  • computer

To assemble the invite:

  1. Start by creating a new document in Microsoft word. Drop and drag the American flag image into the document.
  2. Insert a text box. Write out the details of the party. I used the font American Typewriter in size 12 to write:
    For an awesome election night party!

    Official Invitation
    Join PartySugar and LibertySugar
    as they Barack the Vote

    Tuesday, November 4, 2008
    6:30 p.m.
    Elixir @ 16th and Guerrero, SF

    Patriotic Attire Encouraged

    Since I live in San Francisco, I know the majority of my guests are Obama supporters. If you and your friends are partial to McCain change the text to say, "Join us as we Mac-attack the Vote." If your crew is a mixture of both sides, write, "Join us as we celebrate America."

  3. Save the document as a PDF, crop it down to size, and send in an email. Alternately, save the image in an evite or pingg message, and send. For a snail-mailable version, print on thick, white cardstock and send in an envelope closed with an election sticker.
