Ugly Sweater Party Ideas - Tacky Sweater Christmas Party
What says Christmas Party like an Ugly Sweater Party? This post will provide you with great ideas + FREE Printables (At The Bottom) to host your own Ugly Sweater or Tacky Sweater Party! I absolutely love entertaining for the Holiday’s!! Tacky sweater parties are prob my all time favorite family friendly party theme. You can have all of the guest vote during the party for their favorite ugly sweater, and hand out prizes to the top 2 or 3 tackiest sweaters. Another fun activity idea to do during your party is a white elephant gift exchange.

Ugly Sweater Cookies

Ugly sweater party cookies for a fun christmas party idea!
The Ugly Sweater Party cookies are simply adorable! Sugar Coma Cookies (Who Ships) created these fun and adorable cookies for me. I love the fact that they can hang. You could also do just tacky sweater cookies and set on a platter instead of the holes for hanging.

    H! Thank you so much for the free printables. They gave me the inspiration I needed to create something fun far away from home. I do have a question…where do I find the invitation and the tent cards? It does not give me the option to download them and I couldn’t find them on your Etsy shop either.
    Thanks in advance,

    Hello- I absolutely love the ugly sweater party printables. I know I’m very early, but once school starts it will be busy. I’m planning on having an ugly sweater birthday party for one of my kids. Our neighborhood has an annual christmas parade and thought it would be fun to incorporate the ugly sweater theme. I’m unable to download the invites and tent cards. I would love to use them if possible.
    Thank you in advance for your time and wonderful work!

    Hi Kara, I enjoy looking around your blog however, I get frustrated and in the last few months, I can never get a link or the link takes me somewhere else. I hope in the near future, perhaps Christmas these links may work.
