My First Ugly Sweater Christmas Party!

That's right - an ugly sweater Christmas party! Have you heard of this new trend in party themes? I've heard of it recently and was excited to be invited to my 1st one!


Usually on the day of a party, there's a bit of routine in the "getting ready" part. Same questions...What do I wear? Maybe I'll go buy a new top? How should I do my hair? (Etc.) However this past Saturday, there was a bit of a twist to the tasks that go into getting ready for a party.


Task #1 - Go to a store and find the Ugliest Holiday sweater on the rack. Task #2 - Purchase the garment and wear it with pride. That's right, if you are going to dawn an Ugly sweater...you must "Own It" as they say. You must stand tall and proud in the sweater you've found and really have fun with the theme!


Below are some great pics from the party. It was a great celebration of Katy's birthday & the fabulous Christmas season. I enjoyed meeting new people, many of whom are "bloggers", and look forward to hanging out with everyone again in the future!

I'm not recalling this memory you're having of matching shirts?!?! Must have been something my Mom wanted us to do :)

What fantastically ugly sweaters! I am reminded of the paper I wrote for my philosophy of art class on the ugly in art.

Great to meet you and da man. A happy hour cocktail session may be happening next week. Fair warning.
