You need to set the mood for your party right from the start. This means that the invitations should show exactly what your friends and family are in for at this shindig. What to include on the invitations:
- Will there be a contest and prizes?
- Is there a penalty for not wearing an ugly sweater?
- Are kids invited?
- Do they need to bring any food?
- RSVP information

Is it too hot for a sweater where you live? You can find a lot of alternatives that will still work for your tacky Christmas party.
Sweaters for women
Women have a lot of Ugly Christmas sweaters to choose from too! My favorite is the Go Jesus one.

Ugly Christmas sweater voting and winners
If you’re going to make people wear ugly sweaters out in public, there better be a competition. Have a fashion show so everyone can see all of the tacky sweaters, and then remember to have people cast their vote for the ugliest sweater. Here are some cute ballot and ballot box options:
After tallying the votes, you should have a prize for the winner. No need to get something extravagant, a ribbon or small trophy will do. The winner will just be happy to be recognized!
