The holidays are here, and you know what that means: ugly Christmas sweater parties. It’s time to get your party started!
We’ve got the best tips and tricks to hosting an Ugly Christmas Sweater party:
•Choose a holiday invitation: You could choose to send out an invite that says “Ugly Christmas Sweater Party” or “Ugly Christmas Sweater Night Out” in your invitation. This is a good way to let people know what they’re coming to, and it helps them plan accordingly.
•Plan out your menu: There’s no need to go overboard with specialties, but you should make some appetizers that people can munch on while they get their sweaters on.
•Outdo all your guests with the best sweater: First, you need to have a nice big closet full of sweaters. You can’t just go for the ugly Christmas sweater—you must outdo everyone at the party by getting one that’s even uglier than theirs. This is a great way to get people to come over more often (and not just because they want to look at your collection of sweaters)
•Create awards and prizes: You need a way to recognize your best ugly Christmas sweater-wearing friend or relative, don’t you? And what better way to do that than by giving them a special award? Give out something like this “Ugly Sweater of the Year Award” or this “Ugly Sweater of the Month Club.” One thing is for sure: your guests will love it.
•Create a DIY photo booth: This can be as simple as setting up a backdrop or as elaborate as installing a fun light show that plays music when someone snaps a photo. Just ask each guest to stand in front of the backdrop so they look like they’re standing behind an old-fashioned Christmas tree.
•Drinks: Do not forget to bring traditional Christmas flavours into the mix and make nostalgic and heart-warming drinks that are sure to go down a treat. The Ugly Christmas Sweater cocktail is one of these drinks that is sure to be a hit at your party!
