Tacky Christmas Sweater Party!

Every year since we have been married, Drew and I have thrown a Tacky Christmas Sweater party.
We go shopping in my grandma's closet and have yet to wear the same thing twice! I love having this party every year because 1.) It motivates me to get my Christmas decorations up early 2.) I get to see all my friends in full blown Christmas tackiness and 3.) It is a wonderful way to kick off the Christmas season.
This year I decided to try out a Pinterest idea and make my own photobooth. I used a frame from my sister's wedding, popped out the glass and wrapped it in lights. I had some holiday fabric left over from another project so I put it up as a background and I love how the pictures turned out!
Have you ever been to a Tacky Sweater party?

Those are some amazing jumpers!
I've never been to a tacky sweater party but I have been to a party where we all had to wear the craziest outfit we could.
I backcombed my hair and then left my hairbrush at a friends by accident. It made getting ready for work the next day interesting!

I love them! I've been trying to convince Brandon to let me buy him one of those sweaters so we could take our Christmas pics, but he refuses to oblige. I've got two more weeks to convince him :-)
You guys look amazing! And it looks like you had a blast :=)

I'm seriously dying to go to a tacky/ugly sweater party, but maybe it's because we live in the sunshine state that we havent been able to have one. it looks so much fun though.
