Our party was an office party hosted in our home. The talk around the office for the past couple of weeks was…”did you get your sweater yet?!” Prizes were awarded to the guy and girl with the best sweaters!
Because it was an office party all the food was provided by a caterer…I was happy not to have to make a thing! I still felt the need to create a fun “theme” tablescape for the buffet table! I just couldn’t help myself…this is what I came up with! I hope you like my Ugly Christmas Sweater Party Ideas!
I was really at a loss on what to create for the centerpiece, until I came across these very cute sweater wine bottle covers! I just couldn’t believe how perfect they were. I have these large glass candle holders that I keep on my dinning room table and I knew they would be perfect to fit over them. I found mine at Marshalls, but you might find them at other stores. They could easily be placed on any large size candle holders or even used as intended…on wine bottles!
I bought these craft pom poms to fill my glass candle holders and then decided to sprinkle them around the center of the table. I covered the table with a red tablecloth and bought a couple of yards of quilting fabric. I chose this argyle print fabric…it looked sweater like and trimmed the edges using pinking shears. This is an easy way to trim fabric when you don’t want to sew the edges! I place three of these panels down the table over the red tablecloth.
I did decide to make a couple dozen Ugly Sweater Cookies. I can’t say they turned out great, but I did put them out…people ate them!
Wow!! Susan they are great!!! Def. pinning for next year!! 😉
