How to throw a Christmas Jumper Day party
Put the date in your diary!
Christmas Jumper Day 2016 is on Friday 16th December. December is always a hectic month so put it in your calendar so you don’t forget about it!
Choose a donation amount
The money raised on Christmas Jumper Day helps save children’s lives all over the world, and the basic premise is you pay a pound or two to wear your Christmas jumper to work or school.
Keep the donation amount fairly small to encourage more participants – we’d recommend between 50p and £2. Extra donations are always welcome, of course!
Pick some Christmas jumper decorations
If you want to make your fundraising event extra special, you could plan a full on Christmas Jumper Day party! Think Christmas jumper decorations, party food and prizes for the best novelty knits.
Since Christmas Jumper Day is all about novelty knitwear, we started with our Christmas jumper party supplies. They’re perfect for ugly sweater parties and look super cute! Think napkins shaped like Christmas jumpers and plates covered in Christmas sweaters – just what you need for this cute, Christmassy party theme.
How cute are these winter scarf glass decorations? Just what you need to make a Christmas fundraiser fantastically festive!
Keep your decorations cute and simple – we love this Christmas jumper bunting! Hang it along the wall or across your mantelpiece if you’re celebrating at home.
How cute are these Christmas jumper placecards? We might even use them for Christmas dinner!
Scattering the tables with this Christmas jumper confetti is another cute touch, and red and white paper straws that are stripey like candy canes look extra specially festive too!
Ask for party food contributions
Party food is a great way to raise some extra cash. To maximise the amount of money you raise for Christmas Jumper Day, we’d recommend asking people to contribute towards the party food and then charge people £1 a plate. Let people know in advance whether they’re bringing sandwiches, cakes, sausages rolls, etc to make sure you have a good spread!
As for Christmas-themed party food, you could have a go at making Christmas jumper cookies if you’re feeling really creative. But if you fancy the easier option, we’d stick to classic Christmas snacks like mince pies, pigs in blankets and candy canes. As for drinks, mulled wine is a must!
Finally… pick a jumper!
Last but not least, pick a novelty sweater to wear at your Christmas Jumper Day party! The cheesier, the better!
Pull out an old favourite or turn an old sweater into something festive and silly. Check out this easy DIY Christmas tree jumper if you really want to stand out from the Christmas crowd!
