An Epic Ugly Sweater Party

post by matt

Last Saturday we kicked off the last month of 2012 with our second ever Open House. We decided to make it a little more fun and asked people to come in their favorite ugly sweater or tacky Christmas outfit. It was so fun to see people show up and it was worth it to go all out because we had some awesome prizes for the ‘Best of the Worst Dressed’.

I would like to say thank you so much to my mom, who is visiting and was my baking partner to create all of the goodies for our guests. And a huge thank you to both of my parents, Matt’s mom and of course Matt who helped set up and clean up and make our house look lovely and Christmasy :) And thanks to everyone who came out, it was great to see you!!

I love Christmas, and I love baking…..this was the result.

Ugly sweaters and smiles :) I’m really impressed with what you all came up with!

We have a couple of grinches in this pic…..yes I’m talking about you Duane!!

Before we move on to the next pic I want to mention the two couples at the bottom of the last pic. We have Dawn & Ryan the owners of Folklore Coffee & Company in Elizabethtown and the sponsors of one of our two great prizes for ‘Best of the Worst Dressed’. Please check out Folklore if you’re in Etown, they have great coffee, food, and often have live music on the weekends. The second couple I want to mention are Lani & Ryan, owners of Plum Salon and Spa here in Lancaster. They sponsored our other fabulous prize and I would highly recommend booking a relaxing spa day in the near future, they are running some great holiday specials!

Here’s some more good looking guests ;)

And here’s a few more of the epic outfits people came up with. Matt was completely ridiculous as a Christmas tree, head to toe! Even our parents got in on the fun!

Thanks to everyone who came out! And if you missed it, stay tuned for the next (mattnnat) Open House….you never know what it might look like ;)
