:: Party Details - ugly sweater party

I haven't put on a party in such a long time and I knew a couples "Ugly Sweater Party"
would be perfect.

We had a hot chocolate bar with yummy treats,
some Christmas Trivia, opened white elephant gifts, 
gave a prize for the ugliest sweater,
and played Christmas Reverse Charades (which was a hit).

It was so nice to be able to create once again and to do what I love
 to do . . . put on a party!
I feel like my life has been so busy and stressful lately
so it was nice to have some fun with some good friends.

I usually like to try to design my own invites, but I was pressed for time
so I found this cute one off of etsy.

I bought these mugs from ikea for $1 each
and followed this tutorial here from DesignMom.

And here was my little helper who just had to put the jingle bells on the mug
so it could look "cute".

It was so much fun, that I plan on doing this yearly!
