Happy Holidays

This time of the year we’re reminded of the value of friends and family. My Bunco group has both…my mom, my sister and my aunt are all in my Bunco group and the remainder I’m proud to call friends (some feel like family ;). Our group has been together (with members leaving and new ones joining) for 15 years, girl time is a must! If you’re hosting bunco this month I won’t even bother discussing decorations…there’s definitely no shortage of those in the stores! Consider a fun Traveler like a Santa stress ball or a plush snowman. As far as…

Time for Sweatshirts and Bonfires!

Well, it’s September and time for sweatshirts and bonfires! Both of those things just scream warm and cozy, not to mention s’mores! I make my s’mores with a Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup instead of a piece of chocolate…if you haven’t tried it, you’re missing out! Are you hosting Bunco this month? If so, there are lots of great themes you can use…Autumn Leaves, School Days (or School Rocks), or Touchdown are seasonal…or you could go another way….Pajama Party, Retro Housewives, Wine a Bit, Java Joy, or Hot & Flashy. There are so many possibilities! If you choose to go with a seasonal…

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…
