Some people say that ugly Christmas sweater parties are overdone and outdated, but in my opinion, nothing gets you more into the Christmas spirit than a hideous, rhinestone bedazzled snowman sweater! Despite their popularity, most of our party guests had never attended an ugly sweater party, so everyone really put a lot of thought and effort into their outfits.
I kept things simple with the menu and went with appetizers, dips, and desserts, plus lots of good beer and wine. Most everything could be made ahead of time, so I prepped the food the night before, and then warmed it all up right before the party.
Our menu was as follows…
Spinach Artichocke Dip (served with warm pita triangles)
Buffalo Chicken Dip (served with tortilla chips)
Oreo Cheesecake Bites
Chocolate Covered Pretzels
I’ll be sharing most of these recipes over the next few weeks, so stay tuned!
