This month we will celebrate another inauguration of our elected president. Regardless of how you voted or how you feel about President Barack Obama’s second term, we can all celebrate the fact that we are Americans and we have the right to vote. The artisans at Etsy don’t disappoint when it comes to patriotic flair so grab your hot dogs and your root beer floats and let’s celebrate!

This little piece of pop art history will make a fun addition to your inauguration party.
Serve it up
Arrange your Obama face cookies or your mini-corn dogs and burgers on a patriotic platter. This large dish from Etsy shop owner Diane Ziegler will be the perfect piece to have throughout the year for other patriotic holidays.
