Host an Ugly Sweater Halloween Party

Host an Ugly Sweater Halloween Party

First day of October gets me thinking about Halloween Party themes. I came up with a really fun idea for an ugly sweater Halloween party. Seriously, what could be scarier than that? I think I might have actually laughed out loud when I dreamed up the ugly Halloween sweater party theme. Then of course, the next thing I had to do was Google ugly Halloween sweaters. Oh boy did I hit pay dirt on that Google search! There are so many awful halloween sweaters out there and you are in luck I have attached all my favorite ones at the bottom of the post  for you to shop!I will say that finding any type of invitations for this particular party theme is not exactly easy, since the concept is not exactly out there yet. So, I did have to to get a little crafty and create my own. I was able to take a free template, that I downloaded from my friends over at Basic Invite, for an Ugly Christmas Sweater Gift Tag and craft it into an ugly Halloween sweater with fall colored scrapbook paper and  3D scrapbook stickers. Then, I added them to a basic printed invitation that I was able to print myself on cardstock at home. I think they turned out pretty cute.Your guests will probably really appreciate the lack of needing to put together a costume, and the comfort factor involved in this particular party theme. So it will be perfect for sitting around a backyard bonfire and just socializing. You can check out our Trick or Treat S’mores to Drink which would be a perfect campfire drink for your party. Plus I have a brand new set of drink ideas for this party theme that I am pre-releasing as a test run next week, so be sure to check back in to see those innovative treats.

  33. There’s certainly a great deal to find out at this post and I really like all the points you’ve made. I have read this post and appreciate the recommendations you made along with some fascinating advice. Maybe you can write a few subsequent articles referring to this article are in a similar vein? I have been surfing online more than three hours these days, in my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content material as you did, the web would probably be much more helpful than ever before.

  34. This is such a great idea I really wish that I had seen it earlier it would have totally done this instead of a traditional costume party.

  35. Erin
