It’s not an Ugly Xmas Party if people don’t dress accordingly, so make sure everyone sports one of these tacky sweaters!  Here at UCS we have a large selection for men and women of all sizes and tastes.  So whether you prefer something naughty, simple, or one of our light up sweaters, we pretty much have your covered.  
 
Easy Decorations  
 
There are some quick and easy ways to decorate your table for your party.  If you go to a pet store you will be able to find some small ugly sweaters for fairly cheap.  Take these sweaters and put them over your candelabras or lone candlesticks.  Make the candles stick out of the neck and arm holes and you have some decorations all ready.  These will make just about any table stand out and definitely leave an unforgettable impression. 
 
Cookies/Activity  
 
If you want to have some traditional snacks for people then you can go with gingerbread men.  When you are decorating them you can just decorate them with ugly Christmas sweaters to match the theme of your party.  In fact, for a group activity you could put out the ingredients for decorations and let the guests decorate their own cookies and then have an ugly gingerbread man Christmas sweater contest and give out a prize to the ugliest one. A variation on this would be to make sugar cookies in the shape of sweaters and then decorate them. 
Drinks 
For drinks, you could have nearly any drink and put the drinks in glasses, mugs or party cups that have ugly sweater cozies around them. Planning for these parties does not have to be a chore.  Be creative and your guests will love it.
