Giving Thanks for Everything!

As I’m sure you’re aware, this is the month of Thanksgiving. Sure the food is super yummy, but let’s take a moment and give thanks for, well, EVERYTHING. Even if things didn’t go exactly as you’d hoped this year or you’re in the middle of something challenging, there’s always something to be thankful for…even if it’s the air we breathe or the water we drink. I say let’s try our best to be grateful for all things…even the challenges, as they teach us lessons and build our character. I hope you look for all the blessings in your life…you’ll be…

Boo! Did I scare you?

Sorry if I startled you, I just wanted to make sure you were paying attention, cause I’ve got some frighteningly fun stuff to share with you! Are you hosting Bunco this month? If so you’re in for a real treat…there are so many fun themes to choose from! You could just stick with Autumn if you’re hosting early in the month or go with a Halloween theme…scary, silly, fun, or creepy…what’s your style? A plush pumpkin would be a fun Traveler, or if you want something a little scarier try a toy spider…yikes! Halloween Bunco can be soooo much fun!…

Fall is on its way!

Fall is on its way in! It seems like everyone love sweatshirts and bonfires. I, on the other hand, love summer and heat! I’d probably like autumn more if winter didn’t come next! I mean the colors of the trees changing are beautiful, it just doesn’t last long enough…and then there’s the raking of leaves. Will you be hosting bunco this month? If so there are lots of theme options, Autumn Leaves, Touchdown (for the football fans), or School Days, are just a few autumn theme options. If autumn is your thing, hosting a fall themed bunco party can be super…

Who doesn’t love the beach?

I just love summer! The warm weather, long days, and all the fresh fruit and veggies…not to mention the beach. Who doesn’t love the beach? Of course, I don’t have a “real” beach to go to because I live in Iowa…but that doesn’t stop me from planning vacations that include beaches! Or even hosting a Beach Fun Bunco party. I’m hosting Bunco this month and that’s just what I’m gonna do! I’ve got some sand colored tablecloths and beach themed plates & napkins. I’m going to put my table snacks into (new/clean) small plastic sand buckets with small plastic shovels…

Happy (almost) July 4th!

Hope you’re enjoying the summer so far! Time to relax…after all that’s what summer is for, right? Relaxing in the warm summer sun, I say, bring it on! Happy (almost) July 4th! This month is all about picnics and celebrating independence. If you’re hosting Bunco this month grab all the red, white, and blue you can find…it’s time to get patriotic! Just like most holidays (at least the big ones) there’s no shortage of decorations in the stores, so go crazy! If you’re looking for something to serve for dessert, here’s a recipe (below) that fits right into the picnic…

Garden Party Bunco

Summer arrives this month and I’m so loving this weather! This is a big month for me, my youngest son is graduating from high school, my grandson is turning one, and my middle son is getting married! In honor of the wedding, I’m featuring the Bridal Bunco Set. It’s great fun at any bridal shower! I love the summer with the backyard bonfires and garden parties, time seems to go a little slower in the summer…maybe it’s those long summer days. If you’re hosting Bunco this month you’re probably thinking…the only holiday this month is Father’s Day and I can’t…

Happy May Day!

Spring is in the air and May flowers are blooming (or at least some of them lol). Happy May Day! When I was a kid we used to pick flowers and make little May baskets (actually a paper cone with a ribbon) and put them on the neighbors’ doorknobs. I can’t remember all the traditions around this little holiday, but I do remember that one. This weekend is Cinco de Mayo. If you’re hosting Bunco the beginning of this month a Fiesta sounds perfect! Fiesta theme is fun any time of the year, but especially May 5th! Maybe use a…

Easter and April Fools’ Day

Wow, what a day…Easter and April Fools’ Day all in one day. That doesn’t happen very often. I hope you don’t get any tricks played on you…especially by a certain Bunny! LOL Enjoy the day, either way! Unless you’re hosting bunco, well, today or even this week…you might not wanna go with an Easter themed Bunco party. But that doesn’t mean you don’t have other options. There’s still some fun spring themes, like Garden, Tulips or Baseball…think Spring Training. If baseball is your jam, ask everyone to wear their favorite baseball hat and/or jersey. Decorate the card tables to look…

Everything is Turning Green

Spring arrives this month and I am so ready for it! I’m not a fan of winter (if I haven’t mentioned that before lol). It’s a magical time of new beginnings and new growth, plants and people alike. A time for spring cleaning, a new spring wardrobe, and new growing grass and flowers popping out of the ground. Everything is turning green…just in time for St. Patrick’s Day! This is such a fun holiday filled with green food and drinks, green decorations and don’t forget the luck…who can’t use a little luck?…especially when you’re playing Bunco! If you’re hosting a…

Hearts, Hearts, Everywhere

Hope you’re keeping warm…spring is right around the corner (at least that’s what I’m telling myself). This is the month of love and what a fun month to host Bunco! Hearts, hearts, everywhere…there’s definitely no shortage of Valentine’s Day decorations in the stores, that’s for sure. And while you’re picking up the plates, napkins, and misc. decorations check out the plush toys…you’re sure to find a plush heart which would make a super fun Traveler….and even a prize at the end. What to serve, you ask? How about some shrimp cocktail as an appetizer (they’re pink, right lol). Or maybe…
