Summer Bunco Fun!

Happy (almost) 4th of July! I hope you’re having a fun and safe holiday weekend! I’m going low-key this year. Last month we welcomed a new grand-baby (our first) and our oldest son got married. So, needless to say, I’m ready for some downtime! I know some people take the summer off from playing bunco but in my group we don’t. We love our girl time and always try to make it work…there have been occasions where we’ve had 6 subs…that gets crazy! But inviting subs can also be a great way to get to know new people. If you’re hosting Bunco…

Butterflies, Roses, and Gnomes, oh my!

It seems like during the summer things move a little slower…maybe that’s why they call them the lazy days of summer! Are you hosting this month (or anytime during the summer)? If so, there are so many themes to choose from during the summer that it’s hard to choose one. Sometimes in my group, we use 3 different sets, 1 per table…it’s a fun way to mix things up! Unlike all those months with the obvious holidays to theme around, summer is wide open! You could pick Butterflies, Summer Day, Dog Days, Roses, Glorious Golf, Grand Slam Baseball, or Garden…and…

Bring on the May flowers!

I can hardly believe it’s May already. I say, bring on the May flowers! I’m so ready for warmer weather. This month is wide open for Bunco theme options! You could use Fiesta (Cinco de Mayo), Roses, Diva, Wine a Bit (Mother’s Day), Garden or Tulips (planting season), or if you’re into sports, Off to the Races, Glorious Golf, or Grand Slam Baseball…like I said…sooooo many options! This month we celebrate Mother’s Day. Being a mom is hard work, and I’m not just talking about wiping noses and changing diapers. I’m a mom of nearly grown boys (my guys are 23, 20 & 17) and I’m here to tell you the teenage years and beyond bring their own challenges. So here’s to…

Yay, spring has finally arrived!

Hope you’re staying dry, from all those April showers! But at least spring has finally arrived! I’m over winter once it reaches about 50 degrees. Why I live in Iowa is a mystery. lol I’m so excited to introduce our brand NEW Garden Bunco Set, just the thing to brighten your gnome, I mean home. lol Also, this month we’re featuring our Easter Eggs, April Shower’s, Tulips, and Grand Slam Baseball (it’s spring training time!) Bunco Sets. April is hosting Easter this time and if you celebrate Easter that’s an easy one to decorate and theme around…I mean there are so many Easter decorations…

Spring is in the air!

Spring is in the air and boy am I ready for it! I don’t know about you, but I’m not a fan of cold weather. With spring on the way, everything feels so fresh and new. Like I wanna change up my wall decor, do some spring cleaning, and organize this and that…I’m a bit of an organization freak. lol If you like green, March is a great month for hosting Bunco.  St. Patrick’s Day is definitely an easy holiday to go overboard on…green food, green drinks, green decoration, green costumes/clothes, and of course…green dice! Consider giving a special prize…

Happy Valentine’s Day

Hope you’re staying warm! I keep wondering when the sun is gonna come out again…it’s perpetually cloudy (at least here in the Midwest). lol Well, at least we have Valentine’s Day…all the love and chocolate! If you’re hosting Bunco this month you can go crazy with Valentine’s Day decorations and themed food. I mean anything pink or red will work! Below is a yummy (red) recipe you can serve at your Valentine’s Bunco Party! And if you’re looking for Valentine’s Bunco score cards & tally sheets I’ve got a few examples below the recipe. Good luck at Bunco this month…I…

Brrrrrr

Brrrrrr…I hope you’re staying warm! It is soooooo cold today! I’m in Iowa and the temps are barely out of the single digits with below zero windchills. These are the days I ask myself why I haven’t moved south yet! I’m just sitting here at my computer looking out the window thinking of the day I get to open my window again…can’t wait! One good thing about January is how it feels like a fresh start…I love that! A brand new year…with all the possibilities and promises. Welcome, 2017! I have a feeling it’s gonna be a great year! January also…

It’s beginning to look a lot like Bunco!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Bunco! Where has the year gone? I can’t believe it’s December already! Next week is my group’s annual Bunco Christmas Party. Everyone brings an appetizer or treat, we start an hour early, and sometimes only play two rounds. It’s so fun to spend holiday fun time with my Bunco Babes! Love those girls! <3 If you’re hosting this month I doubt you need decor ideas for hosting bunco, lol! There are sooooo many decorating options available this time of the year…santas, snowflakes, snowmen, angels, bells, trees, etc. As far as Table Snacks you…

Here we go!

Here we go! It’s the beginning of the “holiday season” and I’m sure you’ve all seen Christmas stuff all over the stores (probably even before Halloween was over). Poor Thanksgiving gets the shaft…no big hoopla for little o’ Thanksgiving. Sure you’ll find a single isle of Thanksgiving somewhere between the clearance Halloween stuff and (we can’t wait to get this on the shelf) Christmas stuff. But let’s not forget the meaning behind this holiday…to GIVE THANKS. I’m so grateful for my family and friends (I could seriously keep listing stuff but I won’t lol). Speaking of friends, my Bunco friends are…

Autumn has arrived, are you ready?

Autumn has arrived, are you ready? The trees are changing colors and Halloween will be here before we know it! I hope you’re enjoying the season change as much as I am. My Bunco group and I are gearing up for our Autumn/Halloween themed Bunco Night! We like to use a different theme for each table (Autumn Leaves, Haunted Halloween, Jack-O-Lantern or Vampires Bite are a few fun autumn themes). If you’re hosting this month consider one of our autumn themed Bunco Sets for your party! One of the many great things about Bunco Night is that it can be as…
