Party planner Sally Strebal, of bestpartyever.com, has a few tips on how to throw an at-home Barack Obama inauguration party that truly celebrates his historical win.
Strebal recommends pouring black and tan brews for guests, serving up the new prezs favorite foods, and even dressing up like Obama, Michelle Obama, or the First Daughters at a shindig to commemorate Obamas presidency.
She says, You dont want to offend anyone, but he is the first black president. Why not celebrate that? Its kind of exciting.
Strebal assures that if youre coming from a good place you wont look like a racist.
If youre unsure of the response youll get, Strebal says you could always throw a Hawaiian blowout since Hawaii is Obamas birthplace or have a Chicago-themed or Harvard-themed party to honor the 44th presidents roots.
