Nothing More Fun than a Dress-Up Holiday Party (not what you’re thinking!)

Ugly Sweater party photo from’re doing 50 Days & 50 Ways to have a merry recycled holiday. More about this….)

Remember how much fun it was to play dress up when you were a kid? Why not bring some silliness into the holiday season with an

Ugly Sweater Party?

Here’s how:

  • Invite everyone for a casual, drinks-and-nibbles evening. No need to worry about entertainment (although a play list of schmaltzy carols would be an added touch…)
  • Make sure your Ugly Sweater is the Ugliest. Scour all sorts of resale shops, from the funkiest to the most sublime (even the designer-type boutiques often offer tacky holiday-themed sweaters, because they’re collectibles!) While you’re shopping, pick up any tongue-in-chic accessories you find (Santa ties? Reindeer slippers? Light-up pins?) to add to a guest’s raiment.
  • Have a ball! And take pictures so you can embarrass your friends 😉
