The Christmas holidays are always good for hosting a party. If you want to host a great party over the holidays, try a Tacky Sweater Party. This type of party generally is a happy, festive and fun party where the main theme is everyone wearing ugly Christmas sweaters.  Also known as an “Ugly Christmas Sweater Party”, this Tacky Sweater Party can be an excellent way to get friends and family together throughout the holidays and have some laughs at the same time.

Since these parties are becoming more popular, Ugly Christmas Sweater Party ideas are in abundance on the internet. Some of the best ideas go back to basics, like these ugly sweaters.  Starting with decorations, you should scour flea markets and second hand stores for the tackiest and ugliest Christmas themed items you can find. Since you are buying second hand, this shouldn’t be a huge expense.

Other Ugly Christmas Sweater Party ideas focus on the invitations. The more creative the invites are, the more fun they will be and the more people will want to come to your party.  Most people make it mandatory to wear ugly or tacky sweaters, but sometimes ugly hats or shirts can be acceptable.  Your invitations should have some kind of play on words or pun using the words “tacky” or “ugly” and be sure to include “Christmas” or “Holiday” in your catch phrase.

If you want to further “theme up” your tacky sweater party, require all participants to wear a matching turtleneck, make them all wear cardigan sweaters or have the men wear ladies sweaters and the women wear men’s sweaters. Another thing you can do is have a fashion show, award prizes for the ugliest sweaters, or play games like “Pin the Ugly on the Sweater”.  This can be done by buying a plain sweater and cutting up ugly pieces of fabric in Christmas shapes, allowing participants to actually pin the ugly on the sweater. Have old classic Christmas tunes playing in the background or play traditional Christmas television shows on DVD.  Christmas socks can also be a side contest should anyone be brave enough to wear them.

With a bit of creativity and a fun attitude, you can really have a great Ugly Christmas Sweater Party that will become famous among your friends and family.
