Ugly Christmas Sweater Party

So, we started what is to be an annual occasion last week.  We kicked off the Christmas season with an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party and it was a huge success (if I do say so myself).  We had ugly tablecloths and wall hangings to set the mood.  We ate soups, appetizers, and lots of yummy Christmas treats (thank to all of you who helped out with that).  We had a white elephant gift exchange, and ugliest sweater contest, and a rousing game of Christmas Bunko. Everyone seemed to have a great time and I loved the sweaters that people came up with. 

Here are the invitations that I made.
Some of the girls playing Bunko.
Lucky Kyle picked this box to open, he didn't keep it for long though!
Another table during Bunko (do you love the hat for traveling Bunko?).
This was one of the great white elephant gifts!
Yes, I am aware that there are a million pictures on this post and I apologize that I am not smart enough to know how to do one of those blog slideshow thingies, but I wanted to make sure that we didn't leave out any of the great sweaters (I think we missed pictures of a few), so for your viewing pleasure, here are some of the great sweaters that appeared (vests and sweatshirts were allowed).

(sorry that this picture is blurry, I have one in focus but they are sitting down so you can't see how gloriously short Nick's vest is)

Now, which sweater do you think was the winner of the 'Ugliest Sweater Contest'?

Sheez don't I feel dumb, I thought the tableclothes looked good-didn't know they were "ugly". We had a fun time. I like all the pictures you took. There sure were some "Ugly" sweaters:)

We had a great time at your party. You guys are perfect party planners. I'll have to let Kyle know that he and the lingerie are featured on this blog.

It is a tie between yours and Tricias, but the vest on the guy by the door could be runner up.

Ok seriously! Jeremy and I are ready to move next to you guys now! No one here will do anything like that here!

I don't think I can pick just one ugly sweater winner.
What a great idea though. Wish we lived closer so we could have joined in the fun.

That's awesome! I miss "dressing up" opportunities. In college, we used to put on our ugliest tourist outfits and ride the bus to Waikiki to hang with the real tourists. I'm sure all kindergarten teachers would be envious of your sweater.
