A Cranky, Ugly Christmas Party

Are you planning to host a Christmas party in December?  If so, it’s not too early to start planning what the holiday party invitations should say. A Christmas party is one of the easiest to plan; your house will already be decorated, and many grocery stores offer extra delicious appetizer and dessert options around the holidays. We’ve already shared some suggestions for a kids’ holiday party, but to add a flavor of fun to your adult holiday party this year, consider the Cranky Swap or the Ugly Christmas Sweater Party.

Cranky Swap

We’ve all participated in a Yankee Swap – providing a wrapped gift of a certain $ amount, drawing numbers to randomly select, open, then possibly switch that gift with another previously opened gift. Fun, but rarely ends with something you truly want. But the Cranky Swap, on the other hand, is the opportunity to get rid of something unwanted that has been lying around your house. So instead of searching for a gender-neutral, age-neutral gift within a specific price range (think candles, mugs, calendars…) you can simply re-gift something from your closet or wrap that impulse buy you never used. Unwrapping these highly random gifts can be a lot of fun; the last Cranky Swap I attended featured a unicycle, lava lamp, Spongebob puzzle, and a lot of laughs.

Ugly Christmas Sweater Party

Christmas party invitationsHave your holiday party invitation announce that guests should wear their most festively-adorned holiday sweaters in an attempt to win the honor of having the ugliest Christmas sweater. These polyester one-of-a-kind pieces are easy to find at mass market stores and sites such as www.tipsyelves.com. Ugly sweater comparisons are a great ice breaker and this is a great party theme to encourage lively interaction between your guests.

So embrace the Cranky Swap or the Ugly Sweater this year and your holiday party will be the one your guests remember the best. For holiday party invitations, checkout the growing selection available at LookLoveSend.com. Order more than 50 cards and ground shipping is free.
