Christmas is right around the corner, and we all know what that means; it’s time to break out the eggnog, stockings, and that ugly sweater you’ve been waiting to wear all year. Ugly sweaters are one of the most awaited parts of Christmas time. Not only are they fun, comfortable, and super festive, they make for a fantastic party theme too. 

So why not take it up a notch this Christmas season with your very own ugly sweater party? All you need is a bunch of willing friends, the ugliest holiday sweater you can find, and a festive invite. Luckily, we can help you out with that last bit. Here’s how you can create an ugly sweater party invite in 4 easy steps. 

Choose a festive template

With modern online design tools like PosterMyWall, you don’t need to worry about creating an invite from scratch anymore. All you have to do is scroll through the wide range of Christmas poster templates available and find the invitation template that best fits the theme of your ugly sweater party. If you happen to like a template that doesn’t quite fit the theme, that’s okay! You can throw in all the festive elements you want to make it perfect for your party. 

Add a splash of red and green 

Christmas is all about reds and greens, and your ugly sweater party should be no different. Throw in a splash of Christmas colors to really bring out the holiday vibe in your invite. There are a bunch of ways you can add colors to your invite without going overboard. 

  1. Throw in a red and green border to avoid cluttering up the middle of your invite. 
  2. Add red and green fonts to add a subtle touch of Christmas to your invite. 
  3. Add a green background and insert little elements of red throughout the design. 

Throw in some festive elements 

What’s a Christmas party invite without a bunch of fun Christmas decor to top it off? Once you’ve chosen the right template for your ugly sweater party invite, take it up a notch by adding a few of your favorite Christmas animations and elements. 

Throw in some ugly sweater animations, a fun Christmas wreath sticker, or even a picture of yourself (or even your pet, if you want to make it more fun!) wearing the ugliest sweater you own. 

Add your information

Creating a Christmas party is definitely super fun, but that doesn’t mean you can forget about the most important details, your information! 

Add the details of your party to your invite in a bright, bold font so that they’re noticeable. Throw in a number for guests to R.S.V.P, and your invite is ready to be sent out. 

Final thoughts 

Christmas parties are super fun to plan out and prepare for, but creating things from the ground up can be a bit overwhelming during the holiday season. With these tips, you can save yourself the time, energy, and printing costs of creating and sending out invitations the traditional way, and create the perfect ugly sweater party invitation in no time.
