Election Night Watch Party

Thank goodness the final hours of this crazy election year are upon us!  I have been voting for 38 years and I must stay this is the most heated election I've ever witnessed.  I plan on enjoying a bottle of bubbly and celebrate the end of the nasty ads from both sides tonight.   Hopefully no matter the outcome tonight, our country will come together as one and have a strong future ahead of us.   

Chilled bottle of bubbly will be ready for the watch party tonight.

Living room credenza decorated with election items.

I found this great White House cookie kit at Trader Joe's.  It was fun to assemble, but I doubt I will be eating it.

This is the first cookie house I've assembled in my entire life.  Not even a gingerbread house over 50 plus years.   Thinking I may try a kit for Christmas.

I'm not the greatest at decorating cakes, cupcakes etc., but this was fun.

I love my little metal president collection surrounding the White House cookie.

Get out and VOTE my friends!  


  1. How special this is Catherine. You are so creative. Since this is your first cookie house, you did an amazing job. So patriotic and lovely. I hope our country does come together. I checked your blog name and is available for $9.34 for two years from Godaddy. Your blog will be the same and you will not lose a thing.

    1. Hi Linda,

      Thank you. My tired old hands are not as steady as they used to be. I will get with you very soon and get this changed over. That is very reasonable for two years.

      Have a lovely evening. I'm heading home to pop a cork not matter which way it goes tonight I have a feeling I'm going to need it.

  2. What a great way to encourage people to vote. You created a beautiful table!

    1. Thank you Christine. I'm so happy the political season is over. Planning my inauguration day table now then will put it all away for another four years. :)
