Ugly Sweater (Outfit) & $5 Gag Gifts


Last weekend our good friends Kristal & Robert hosted a fun ugly sweater/$5 gag gift Christmas party at their home. It was such a fun night, hoping they make it a new annual tradition... *hint hint*

First up, the gifts. I procrastinated and didn't have time to order any gifts so I decided to hit up Pinterest (seriously, what did we do without it?) and find something we could make. I found the following 2 ideas and thought they were pretty cute and something we non crafty folk could probably easily achieve. A trip to Hobby Lobby, some scrapbook paper and good ol' Picmonkey was all we needed.



The Reinbeer was all drank before the night was over. They all laid in the trashcan staring at me with their little googly eyes when I opened it. It was sad....


The cream soda was an accident, it's supposed to be root beer. Oops!


Next up, our outfits. Dustin knew immediately he wanted to turn one of his pajama sweatshirts that had deer on it into an "Ugly" Christmas sweater. We just went to Hobby Lobby and grabbed anything we could to transform his sweatshirt. Me, I headed to Goodwill to see what I could find. I had no luck with a sweater but found this semi-turtleneck shirt and red skirt and decided to just create the most obnoxious & tacky outfit I could. Complete with bells on the garland around my shoes. His sweater had bells all along the bottom, we were super annoying and jingly. 



And yes, that is a naked elf on the deer. It had clothes, but why put them on... right? Ha. 

Kristal created the cutest little photo area and props in her entry way. Such a fun & festive little touch. We all had fun with it! 



I adore these girls, my sweet besties! Thank you Kristal & Robert for hosting such a fun party, we had the best time. 

Have you attended any holiday parties this year?

*Reminder, don't miss the Kate Spade & Sephora giveaways!
