Do you have a fantastically cheesy, or “ugly” Christmas sweater in your closet? If so, then you’re probably looking for something to do with them. After all, it isn’t practical to wear it on a regular basis, especially if you work in an office with a strict dress code. Instead, it’s fun to have an ugly Christmas sweater party! Here are some tips:
Choose Your Sweater
Having a successful party begins with a great sweater! The goal is to find the cheesiest or “ugliest” sweater in your closet and wear that to the party. If you don’t have one that is chuckle-worthy, you can always buy one. This is especially important if people will be voting on their favorites. You want to wear the best sweater you can find!
Invite Your Guests
Most people are busy during the holidays, which means that you need to plan your party pretty early in the season. That way, people’s calendars still won’t be filled up and more people will come to your party! As soon as you decide to have the party, you should quickly invite your guests and encourage them to RSVP as soon as they can.
Decorate Your Home
How will you decorate for your ugly sweater party? Sure, you can simply decorate and leave it at that. However, it’s a lot more fun to get creative. You can even decorate with some of the ugly Christmas sweaters you have in your closet! If you have more than one, this can be a great thing to do with all those sweater that you won’t get to wear during the party.
Know What to Serve
What kinds of food will you be serving at your party? There are a few possibilities. First, you can serve a full sit down or buffet style meal. Second, you can focus on just serving appetizers and maybe a few simple desserts. You can also turn your part into a pot luck. This is an especially fun option if you don’t have a lot of time to get ready for the part. Your goal is to serve food that will please the crowd and isn’t too complicated to put together. After all, you want to enjoy your guests, not slave away over a hot stove!
Instead of giving a typical Christmas party, why not have an ugly Christmas sweater party instead? With a little planning, you can give your guests something they won’t forget.
