Ugly sweaters, beautiful berries.
On the one hand, we’re giving a big (huge!) thumbs down to not being able to see some of our favorite friends and loved ones in person this holiday season, but, on the other hand, we’re giving a sizable thumbs up to the opportunity to get creative with online gatherings and long-distance festivities. The Ugly Sweater Party is a holiday go-to, and with good reason: it’s a fun and simple way to get guests talking and laughing (not to mention the fact that most of us—yes, even you—have a just-this-side-of-hideous sweater lurking somewhere in our closet). Another great thing about the USP? It works just as well for virtual gatherings; simply show off your terrible togs on screen instead of in person.
Unlike at a traditional party, treats can’t be shared at an online fete, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be included. And a party revolving around questionable aesthetics definitely needs something beautiful to balance things out, no? If you’re celebrating the worst in sweaters, celebrate the most beautiful, most creative in treats! Give yourself a head start in the looks department by choosing the supermodel of snacks: the strawberry. And if you truly want to set your creation apart, go with the strawberry that unequivocally stands above the rest: Well•Pict Berries. Below, we’ve provided a few recipes as lovely as that reindeer-dressed-as-Betty-White sweater is tacky. Enjoy!
