Ugly Christmas Sweaters for Your Ugly Sweater Holiday Party!

It's that time of year and if you have not already, you will most likely receive at least one invitation to an ugly sweater Christmas party. Since we are pretty sure you don't have anything ugly hanging in your closet we have put together a few inexpensive options for you to look great wearing ugly!

Stocking Stuffer Ugly Sweater

This year our “go to”  ugly sweater shop is Tipsy Elves! Yes the ones from Shark Tank! How fabulous are these Stocking Stuffer Ugly Sweaters!

DIY Ugly Sweaters

The easiest and most inexpensive option is to simply take a sweater you already own and ugly it up. Just pin on goofy holiday related items.  You can  actually order an Ugly Christmas Sweater Kit on Amazon.

Our second stop is generally Amazon because they have a ridiculously large selection of the ugliest sweaters we have ever seen. Since this is not a sweater you will wear over and over again, at least for us, price trumps quality every time.

Pair Your Favorite Holiday Cookies with Wine!

Pair Your Favorite Holiday Cookies with Wine

We are obsessed with this post on The California Wine Club's blog pairing wine with holiday cookies! From the opening line “Why should milk have all the fun?” to the fact that The California Wine Club actually has sound reasons for their suggested pairings, we were hooked. And then to reel us in, they created this great holiday cookie wine pairing chart. We are almost as impressed with this post as we are with their wine offerings.  How fun would it be to gift a plate of yummy homemade cookies with the perfectly paired wine or better yet, 3 months worth of wine (use code AFSHIPFREE15 thru the end of the year to get free shipping!)

Fox Theme Party Planning, Ideas, Decor & Supplies

Foxy everything is by far the latest and greatest animal obsession to hit the states.  It all started with the Ylvis – The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?) Video parody created by a Norwegian comedy duo.  In just under a month they have racked up 100 million YouTube views, have the web’s most-streamed song, and have booked guest appearances on Ellen Degeneres and  the Today Show.  This video has even spawned this year's best group Halloween costume.

Now that we are all hooked on the absolute adorableness of the fox, we can definitely see fox / woodland theme popping up in holiday cards, birthday parties, baby showers and even as nursery wall art.  We are at once surprised at just how much fox “stuff” is available and yet how hard it is to find products that work for party decor without having to DIY.
