Come Party With Me: Ugly Sweater — The Look

When decorating for your Ugly Sweater party, think the uglier the better. Create an over-the-top look with tacky accents and mis-matched prints in bright red and vivid green.

Set the mood by hanging a cheeky sign from the door encouraging rowdy behavior. When guests arrive give them a Christmas stocking shaped beverage holder and a black sharpie. Have them write their name on the stocking to prevent lost drinks.

Cover the table with a garish poinsettia tablecloth. Hang lights and wrap beads around banisters and staircases. Light candles and a fire in the fireplace.

Serve the appetizers on big red platters and the sweets in bowls shaped like ornaments. Pour the cocktails in festive martini glasses and pass them out with a plaid cocktail napkin.

Mamaseacat: that's my older brother and his best friend. They actually sent the pic out as a Christmas card a couple years ago and I remembered it and used it for the invite. Luckily they are great sports and thought it was funny!

Every time I see those guys in their sweaters, it just makes me laugh. What did you have to pay them to post their photo for the ugly sweater (and beanie) party? :-)
I wish I had a party to decorate for. Looks like fun.

I am absolutely positive my mom had that poinsettia tablecloth when I was growing up :)

I LOVE the reindeer martini glasses! The ornament bowls are cute too. The stocking beer coozie is too funny!
