The Ugly Christmas Sweater Party
The idea behind the Ugly Christmas Sweater party is to invite all your friends with a sense of humor over to wear the ugliest Christmas sweaters they can find. Typically some good-humored judging of the ugly sweaters occurs, and the winner gets a prize, preferably something ugly. These parties have not only given new life to old pieces of holiday tacky but they have become quite trendy and exceptionally fun.
When the ridiculous becomes cool and everyone gets to participate. At an ugly Christmas sweater party we get to remove ourselves from the protocols and societal norms for a day. We get to let loose, take down all of the guards and just be ridiculous. We all are ridiculous on some level, and to get to strut it around with pride makes everyone feel happy and accepted.
Ugly Sweater Party Décor
It’s a must, tacky rules. Find from the bottom of your Christmas decorating barrel the tackiest plastic Santa’s, ugly pre-made velvet bows, and most of the stuff that’s left in the bottom of the Christmas bins after your traditional decorating is done, is prime material for décor. Think loud, cheap and ugly!
Ugly Sweater Party Beverages
A school time favorite sherbert punch complete with frozen floating ring or anything served out of a red plastic solo cup will be the perfect festive addition to your party. Don't forget masking tape and a black magic marker to mark the owners of the cups. Do some research and find all kinds of Christmas drink recipes that will be the perfect sip for your ugly soiree.
Food shouldn’t be labeled as tacky; however there are old favorites that are a party faux pas that can be served to compliment the ugly theme of the evening fanfare. There are a lot of throwback classics that might be considered passé and perfect like Swedish meatballs, cheese balls, chex mix, pigs in a blanket and many more. We all love to eat them, but they seem to be less than socially acceptable on a party table.
The judging of the ugly Christmas sweaters can be a party all on its own and a great ice breaker for the party. For added fun add some color to your party like a white elephant exchange. Guests bring a wrapped tacky gift that no one really to the. After unwrapping, the opener can choose to keep the gift or steal a gift from one already opened. In the end, at an ugly Christmas sweater party, you really can’t go wrong if you keep things tacky and light hearted!
