Christmas Desserts & Tacky Sweaters Link-Up Announcement!

Christmas Desserts & Tacky Sweaters Link-Up Announcement!
We're back again this year with another round of Christmas Desserts & Tacky Sweaters!

Jamie, Liz, and myself had so much fun with this link-up last year that we couldn't resist hosting it again this year. I mean just look at those fabulous sweaters above. If that doesn't put a Christmas smile on your face then I don't know what will. And, this year we are lucky enough to have Whitney join in on the fun with us too!

The details of the link-up...

Get in the kitchen and whip up your favorite Christmas desserts. Don't have one? That's okay. Try something new this year. Or, go the semi homemade route and decorate some store bought sugar cookies. Anything goes!

Take lots of pictures to share and if you are up for it, snap a picture of you in a delightfully tacky Christmas sweater showing off your dessert as well. Write up a recipe post so that we can all try it for ourselves, and then come link up with either Jamie, Elizabeth, Whitney, or myself on December 3rd. The link up will open on 6am EST on Dec. 3rd and close just in time for Santa to make his rounds at 11:59pm EST on Christmas Eve. You can also share on Instagram or Twitter with #sweetsandsweaters15.

Don't forget to make a little extra so you can share with Santa!

Not sure if you feel like shopping for a tacky sweater? No problem! Doctor up a sweater you already have, or take a whirl around a second hand shop to see what you can find. It doesn't have to be anything complicated, the point is to have a little Christmas fun with it. But nothing to worry about if you'd rather not, you can absolutely link up just a Christmas dessert recipe - no silly sweater required!

Not sure what dessert to make this year? Try one of these: chocolate chip snowball cookies, cookie dough buckeyes, gingerbread kiss cookies, red velvet sugar cookie bars, eggnog thumbprint cookies, or these super easy vanilla kiss cookies.

We hope to see all of your Christmas treats in two weeks!


  1. You always do fun link ups. Don't think I'll be able to participate but looking forward to seeing everyone else's desserts and tacky sweaters!

  2. How fun is this?! My Mother in Law has a few options for me on the tacky sweater front. Seriously!

  3. Food and rediculous festive wear? Sounds like the best time ever!

  4. Putting it on the list! I hope to join the fun!

  5. So fun and festive! Freaking love ugly sweaters.
