Ugly Christmas Sweater Party

So looking for a new way to spice up your Holiday Party?

One of the latest crazes is to have everyone where an ugly Christmas/Holiday Sweater to the party. Most of have one that we were giving hanging around, collecting dust, so why not have a little fun with it?

Just Plan your party as normal and have your guests wear their most obnoxious holiday sweater or encourage them to make one or get one from a Thrift Store. Be sure your party invitations include specific instructions on what your guests are expected to wear - The Ugliest Holiday / Christmas Sweater they can find.

Just by everyone wearing these sweaters will encourage lots of fun interaction among your guests.

PS: Don't forget the Eggnog and Mistletoe!

Time to start planning your party now!

Here are a few ugly sweater party ideas to get you started:

  • Decorations: How do you decorate a tacky Christmas sweater party? With more sweaters, of course! You can use them as placemats underneath trays of food or just hang them on a clothesline as a modified holiday garland. Another idea is to display awkward or embarrassing old family photos from Christmases past. Have a good laugh looking at old fashions and uncomfortable, forced poses. Ask others to bring their contributions to share!
  • Food and Drinks: Bake cookies in the shape of sweaters or make gingerbread men and decorate them with colorful icing in crazy patterns like polka dots or stripes. Another traditionally “tacky” Christmas food is fruitcake, although there are many delicious recipes available. You can also serve brightly colored drinks to match the garish, festive colors of your ugly sweaters.

  • Activities: Your ugly sweater Christmas party will be full of fun with these games. Have a fashion show and award a prize. based on guests’ votes for the most outrageous outfit. You can also host an “Unravel the Sweater” race. Ask for volunteers who are willing to dismember their sweaters for the sake of a good time. The goal is to unravel the sweater in one long continuous string, working through knots. The first person finished wins! Award a gift certificate to a nice clothing store so the winner will never again have to wear their ugly sweater.
Your ugly Christmas sweater party is the perfect excuse to keep that horrible garment you’ve had for too long and instead turn it into the sensation of the season. Have a great time and remember that anything goes with this humorous theme!
