President Obama won the election back in November, but he will be sworn into office for the second time this Monday, January 21. Many people will tune in to watch the momentous occasion and enjoy famous musical acts like Beyonce and James Taylor. Here are the top three ways to celebrate the event with friends and family.
1. Cook up Obama's favorite foods
A great way to get guests in the mood to celebrate is to serve up some of President Obama's favorite comfort meals. ABC News has the president's personal chili recipe up on its website, so making this could be a fun way to feel connected to the celebration in the nation's capitol.
2. Play inauguration games
You can get people excited about the historical significance of the event by setting up a few rounds of trivia with the topics centering around American history and Obama facts. Let the winner make a speech of his or her own after the win to further represent the inauguration.
3. Decorate with patriotic flowers
No inauguration party would be complete without red, white and blue flowers. A bouquet of flowers like America the Beautiful by Teleflora is sure to infuse the American spirit in your home. The mix of red roses, white asiatic lilies and blue statice are gorgeous and come in a blue vase with a miniature American Flag, perfect for getting the party started.
