How to make your political party a success on election night
IF THE only party you're concerned with this Saturday is your election night bash, read on.
Some form of media coverage to be played in the background
Watching the night unfold is arguably the most important thing you'll be doing tonight (second to eating and drinking, of course) so make sure you've charged the laptop.
It's going to be a long night of watching numbers on a screen from places you've never even heard of, so playing games is a good way to keep your guests entertained.
Before the coverage kicks off, make up some bingo cards with phrases such as "too close to call" or "cut" or "it's a landslide" written on them.
The first person to cross off all their phrases wins.
Something to eat and drink
Politics can make you hungry.
Channel your inner Annabel Crabb and whip up some politically-themed cupcakes.
It could be fun to dress up as Tony Abbott, right?
