Yesterday, I shared some of my party ideas for a Christmas Ugly Sweater and today is Part 2 of the series. Happy planning…

To make it even more fun, have everyone participate by voting for the winners. Pin nametags to each guest on their arrival; hand out ballot papers and create a super fun ballot box; then let the voting begin.

Adding little mini jersey tops to the top of bottles of wine or gin make for super cute trophies; check out your supermarket Christmas decoration section for something similar or print and pin on these paper award badges.

What could be better than a hot apple cider bar? Serve with store bought Christmas themed hors de oeuvres or make your own festive fondue grazing platter: cover wooden boards with hot pots of dipping cheeses, various breads, baby potatoes, cured meats, nuts and pickled gherkins and onions. And you will definitely want to give each guest one of the Party Pieces Ugly Jumper Bibs; so as to protect their “pretty” sweaters!
