Ugly Christmas Sweater Party Invitations
I love finding a perfectly themed invitation for a party!

Etsy is one of my favorite places to find the perfect invitations and here are two of my favorites for this Christmas party theme…

Ugly Christmas Sweater Outfits
Let’s be honest, the outfits are what this party is all about! Most Ugly Christmas Sweater Parties have a contest for the ugliest sweater and you’re going to want to bring your best game! Whether you opt for a DIY sweater and make your own, rummage through thrift stores for a special find, or purchase something new (the company Tipsy Elves has some pretty amazing options), you’ll want to take some time making your choice. Here are a few we really love…
Christmas Party Decorations
Now that your party invitation and your ugliest outfit are sorted, let’s talk decorations and party supplies! Your home is already decorated for Christmas, so you just need to add a few small details to tie in your theme. I love hanging a party banner, using special plates and napkins, dressing up dessert and maybe even decorating my wine bottles. And to make your job super simple and easy, we have ideas for all of that right here!

Christmas Party Photo Booth
I kind of feel like a photo booth is a must at an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party, don’t you?! Everyone puts so much effort into their outfits, so a special place with photo props, balloons or a fun backdrop is a great addition for your celebration!

Christmas Party Games & Activities
The last piece of party planning to consider is what your guests will do during the event. It’s nice to have one or two activities or games planned, but you don’t need to go overboard. Most people will enjoy grabbing a drink and catching up with friends. And remember, your main activity will be a contest for the Ugliest of Ugly Christmas Sweaters. Why not have a formal voting ballot box and awards? Here are a few ideas we love…
