Ugly Sweater Party!

Christmas can be a stressful time of making sure everything is picture-perfect, so people love the opportunity to let their hair down and wear a truly horrific Christmas jumper!

Having an ugly Christmas jumper party is a great way of starting a Christmas tradition, so be prepared to host the annual event for years to come!

NO JUMPER, NO ACCESS

A colourful Christmas card or humorous e-invite works great; most importantly you will want stress that everyone has to wear an ugly sweater to be granted entrance into the party! After all that is the theme and is the best part of the entire event.

COOL AND KITSCH

To set the scene; bring out all your old Christmas decorations, the tackier the better: Christmas lights, tinsel, cheap and cheerful baubles. We particularly love this Ugly Sweater Garland from Party Pieces.

SWEATER WEATHER

You and your guests can go as tame or crazy as you want with your knitted jumpers; but naturally we recommend the latter. Make it a competition and hand out prizes for the best dressed or rather that should be worst! Other fun categories include the best DIY, most colourful and most sparkly.

THE AWARDS

To make it even more fun, have everyone participate by voting for the winners. Pin name tags to each guest on their arrival; hand out ballot papers and create a super fun ballot box; then let the voting begin.

THE TROPHIES

Adding little mini jersey tops to the top of bottles of wine or gin make for super cute trophies; check out your supermarket Christmas decoration section for something similar or print and pin on these paper award badges.

FESTIVE FOOD

What could be better than a hot apple cider bar? Serve with store bought Christmas themed hors d’oeuvres or make your own festive fondue grazing platter: cover wooden boards with hot pots of dipping cheeses, various breads, baby potatoes, cured meats, nuts and pickled gherkins and onions. And you will definitely want to give each guest one of the Party Pieces Ugly Jumper Bibs; so as to protect their “pretty” sweaters!

SAY CHEESE

Capture the craziness with a DIY Photo Booth. Set up a simple curtain backdrop, add some of Party Pieces photo booth props and you’ll have everyone fighting to get in on the goofy pictures.

SECRET SANTA

Keeping in with the Christmas spirit and for an added dose of fun, play the White Elephant Gift Exchange. Request guests to each bring a gift within a set budget that they will exchange at the party with someone else’s gift. This is sure to get everyone excited, especially as well-informed guest givers will know this is the perfect opportunity to shop for gag gifts.
