Upgrade your awkward Zoom happy hours with a hosted Ugly Sweater Party in an Envelope this holiday season. The Ugly Sweater Party in an Envelope combines super-fun interactive trivia with paper ugly sweater competitions and lots of small group laughter. It’s the perfect option for a socially distanced gathering or for a virtual office holiday party.
And, make it extra special by adding on a Festive Treat Box, featuring decadent foods from 5 to 10 Atlanta small business entrepreneurs. The company is selling three versions of the Festive Treat Box: Festive, Ultimate Festive, and Festive Feminist.
Each Treat Box features Perky Moose’s Christmas cocoa, Malvi’s Honey marshmallows, and Indulge peppermint bark popcorn, with a $15 gift card to a future Unexpected Virtual Tour. The Ultimate Festive Treat Box includes Bella Cucina’s lemon artichoke dip and spreads and an Atlanta Love kitchen towel. The Festive Feminist Treat Box includes exclusive Stacey Abrams and Kamala Harris chocolate covered caramels, a Ruth Bader Ginsburg face mask, and a donation to Fair Fight Action.   
A pandemic pivot of Unexpected Atlanta Tours & Stories, Unexpected Virtual Tours has been successful in building acclaimed virtual experiences that everyone loves. Chief Eating Officer Akila McConnell explained, “Honestly, after this year, we all need a laugh with friends and teammates. Our Ugly Sweater Party in an Envelope is a tongue-in-cheek way to reconnect and laugh. We are particularly excited to feature so many Atlanta food businesses with our Treat Boxes. 100% of our vendors are women-owned or minority-owned food businesses that have been hit hard by the pandemic.”
Each Ugly Sweater Party in an Envelope starts at $24.99 per screen, led by Unexpected Virtual Tours’ trained storytellers via Zoom and a 2020-themed paper ugly sweater kit mailed to guests. The Festive Treat Box add-on costs $45.00, the Ultimate Festive Treat Box costs $75.00, and the Festive Feminist Treat Box costs $120.00. The public Ugly Sweater Parties will be held on select dates through the month of December and may be booked at any time for corporate and private events.
