How to throw the ultimate Ugly Sweater Party

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Hershey Company for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Today I have a great post–all about how to throw the ultimate Ugly Sweater Party! I love a good Ugly sweater party (you can see my Ugly sweater I made last year HERE) . When I ran across these fun Hershey’s Kisses Kissmas Sweater Chocolates exclusively at Walmart I knew they would be the perfect inspiration for the whole party! Because every party is better when you Celebrate with Hershey’s!

I have even thrown in a few awesome free printables to make your party super easy! (Printables are all the way at the bottom!)

First up:  Invitations!

fun-invitation-printables I have a lot of fun blanks…all you have to do is write in your own or upload it to picmonkey and type in your info! Super easy! add-your-own-text

and since they are blank you can easily use them as a banner or name cards!

 

Next up-Photo Backdrop: Find some fun and cute wrapping paper and tape it to the wall! Such an easy thing to do but makes an impact for taking photos! I have actually seen quite a few ugly sweater patterned wrapping paper in stores–but a good striped or polka dot would be cute as well!

And last but not least…Activities!

You can decorate some cookies into ugly sweaters

(double whammy because it’s the activity AND treat!) We got this as a whole cookie decorating set but we noticed the ugly sweaters cookie shape looks a lot like a bell if you want to make them from scratch.

For another activity–I created some free sweater printables-

You can use them for kids to color in and decorate their own ugly sweater!

Or you can actually use these as a banner for decorations!

There are 4 different sweaters designs!

You could also use these as a template to cut out some sweater shapes out of felt to decorate with buttons, glitter, and puff paint!

We’ve also played a fun game where everyone has to wear Christmas stockings on their hands and the first one to unwrap a Hershey’s Kisses Kissmas Sweater Chocolate and eats it WINS! It’s harder than it seems!

hersheys-kisses-kissmas-sweater-chocolates THIS game would be fun as well! So there you have it! All the makings to throw an amazing party! Make sure to swing by Walmart this holiday season to grab some festive treats from the Hershey Company including Hershey’s Kisses Kissmas Sweater Chocolates, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups Miniatures in holiday foils, a three-pound Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bar, giant Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolates and a one-pound Reese’s Peanut Butter Santa!!     You can grab these free printables HERE!
