Ugly Sweater Party {Holiday Party Ideas}

‘Tis the season to rock ugly sweaters & that’s exactly what I did this weekend {although some people may beg to differ but more on that later}! The hubby & I threw a holiday ugly sweater party on Saturday 
for all our neighborhood friends. 
I wanted to share a few of the little details 
I worked on for our shindig.  

Of course, invites from yours truly.


 I decided since I'm spread pretty thin this time of year that I would restrain myself from going overboard on decorations. That & the fact that I am pretty sure the hubby would like to live to be able to see the year 2012.  I'm like the devil's spawn when I feel overwhelmed and stressed.  
So you're welcome honey. 
I spared you your life. You owe me.

I spotted this little, adorable wine sweater at our local grocery store & decided to adhere it to some card stock & frame it's royal cuteness! 


{Me channeling my inner June Cleaver with my new, 
adorable headband from my friend, Regina's, Live Delightfully shop}
Even little Sianna had to get in on the ugliness {Brylee, on the other hand refuses to wear anything. What a party pooper}! 


 Gotta have a little healthy dose of competition, right? So, apparently I suck at this whole ugly sweater thing because I didn't get ONE single vote! 

We also held a white elephant exchange which 
was fantastically r-rated and hilarious. 

 You always know it's been a good night when you pass out, in your clothes, on the couch in the middle of the party.  Seriously, someone should have cut this girl off.

How was your weekend?

PS. I'm also over in Angela's corner of the world today guest posting on her fab blog, Love Sweet Love.  I'm sharing a freebie so you'll want to check it out!

Haha! That looks like a total blast, and your framed sweated is ADORABLE! Sorry about the votes though... maybe next year. :)

Your headband looks awesome! Glad you liked it. :)
