Ugly Sweater Party 2015!



Well we did it friends. We hosted our 3rd annual ugly sweater party this weekend, and per usual, it was a huge success. Everyone was dressed for the occasion as you might have noticed above. Poor Ted...

I don't know that we had quite as many people this year as in years past, but the ones who did show made it a great time.

If you host an ugly sweater party, I highly recommend a "photo booth," or in our case, a wrapping paper backdrop, lights and plenty of Christmas-y props!

Also, having a IT-geek boyfriend comes in handy for setting up a photo booth. Usually we just have people take photos with their phones or cameras. This year however the BF set up my DSLR to not only take the photos with a remote, but show up on his computer screen live! It was like the real-deal photo booth!

Photos were then shared via Facebook.

The night also included my famous crack dip, queso, lots of beers too many shots, games and beer pong out in the garage. New this year was mood lighting - wifi controlled bulbs that go just about any color you can imagine!

And now the photo dump. Here are some of my favorites!

Apparently after a few beers I really like to stick my tongue out? I have no answers for you on that one.

How have you been celebrating the season?

PS - is it bad I want to wear my "ugly sweater" leggings all day everyday and out in public? #christmasleggingsforthewin

  8. Looks like such a fun night! Great idea using wrapping paper for the photobooth. Also A+ on your boyfriend setting up the DSLR and then having the photos rotate on the computer - definitely adds a fun touch.

  12. If I had those leggings I would wear them in public constantly. With my red rain boots. Also next year I am driving to Idaho for your party because this looks awesome! The photobooth is super impressive and I'm not sure what crack dip is but I basically love all dip and could probably live on it so I'm sure I'd love it.

  20. The places I saw here are really wonderful, celebrating a special event like this with the beauty of nature is really cool. When you are in this place, there's nothing you can do than to be happy. I really liked Chicago venues here.
