Ideas for Hosting Your Own Ugly Sweater Christmas Party

You know what you should do this weekend? Throw a little holiday party for you and your friends. Nothing serious, just a fun, spur of the moment ugly sweater party! Why not? They are easy to get (or make) and don’t need a lot of prepping and planning.

On top of the visual inspiration you’ll find below, here are some helpful ideas to hosting a successful ugly (or tacky) sweater Christmas party:

  • Have lots of holiday music on hand. Preferably livelier, upbeat songs.
  • Have refreshments on hand. They don’t necessarily have to be filled with alcohol, but it can’t hurt. People will likely feel a little uncomfortable knowingly wearing a ridiculous sweater out, so help get them feeling a little more relaxed!
  • Have back up ridiculous Christmas hats or vests on hand for those who don’t come as prepared as others…there is always one!
  • Remember the ridiculous looks of the night by having an equally ridiculous photo booth area.
  • Let people know you are having a little contest for the most outrageously tacky sweater. A small prize will do. Caution: this will almost certainly encourage some of your friends to get their game faces on and go all out with their party looks. You’ve been warned.

And without further ado, a visual inspiration board for a fun, ugly sweater Christmas party:
