One of my best friends had an ugly Christmas sweater party a few years ago and I thought it was one of the coolest holiday party ideas I had ever heard of! I had no idea that her party idea would take holiday party planning by snowstorm…because I can’t tell you how many ugly Christmas sweater party invitations we see going through the system at work now.
Let’s all be honest – we all have one of those “ugly” or “tacky” Christmas sweaters in the back of our closet – it was either given to us with love by our Aunt Mildred, it’s our Mother’s or we thought it was cool about ten years ago. Well guess what guys, now you have an excuse to actually WEAR it!!
When you plan an Ugly Christmas sweater party, be sure to choose an ugly Christmas sweater party invitation, like the one in the left of our blog…with full on knit patterns and mini reindeer. Ask your guests to don their favorite, ugliest and tackiest Christmas sweater as they come over to help you celebrate the holiday season. Plan on having a wild, fun and festive night, as these ugly Christmas sweaters tend to inspire a bit of craziness! Serve up some amazing holiday hors d’oeuvres, Christmas cookies and of course an array of Christmas cocktails!
Lastly, don’t forget your camera! You’ll want to catch photos of all of the best tacky sweaters, from the sweaters that light up like your Christmas tree to the embroidered snowflakes, full-on holiday scenes and the dreaded candy cane turtleneck!
So, where will you get your ugly Christmas sweater from? Me? My mother is a fourth grade teacher, and I think her Christmas sweater vests are RIGHT up my alley!
