It's time to dust off those ugly sweaters and invite your friends over for a classic ugly Christmas sweater party. It seems like each year the sweaters get more ridiculous - and increasingly easier to find. (insert old timer accent here) Back in my day, we had to hunt high and low, canvas every thrift store in town, and eBay to find the perfect, hideous sweater.
But alas, times have changed and we are totally on board for any reason to throw a party. And a themed party is even better! So we've rounded up a few of our favorite ugly Christmas sweater party ideas, cocktails and decor to get you started on your own epic sweater party planning.
Cheers to ugly sweaters!
