2014 Ugly Christmas Sweater Party Ideas
When you're planning your 2012 holiday party, make it a theme party this year and ask your guests to wear an 'Ugly Christmas Sweater'. Ugly sweater themed parties have been growing in popularity over the last ten years. Adding a fun theme is an easy way to spice up your holiday gathering with some horrible festive knits.
Although most holiday sweaters were manufactured for women, these knits are unisex when it comes to themed parties! Retro sweaters from the 80s and 90s that have chunky over-the-top holiday scenes are most sought after. The more ridiculous the better when it comes to Christmas sweaters. Party revelers add lights, ornaments, garland and jingle bells to already colorful sweaters, and make a statement when it comes to 'tacky'!
