"Hunting" for a win

UPDATE:
Bunco is just a game of dice throwing. It's really fun - you sit 4 to a table (or 3) and my favorite part is you constantly rotate partners and tables so you get a chance to visit with everyone that is there individually.
(I took this picture of I would have been sitting in that empty chair. I did have on camo pants!)


I was so excited last night because my friend Rachel hosted bunco and it was a camoflauge theme!!! Since a lot of us have husbands who hunt - it was a fun theme. After being inside for the last few days with a sick baby - I was SO happy to have some time with friends!

Rachel made the YUMMIEST food including some of my favorites - pigs in a blanket and strawberry cake balls! (I did not count how many I ate) She even had camo plates and napkins!
The recipe for the cake balls is HERE - just use strawberry cake mix instead of red velvet)
I love bunco - but mostly for the food and fellowship. Pretty sure we did more talking and laughing than serious playing ......but it's a great excuse to get together!
Kacy and Rachel - Kacy ALWAYS wins!
Mary Avery, Lindsey and Ashley
Caryn, Vonda, Berkli and Robin
The hostess with the mostess and one of her precious boys! He was even in camo! I just KNOW that in a few months she is going to be having a little girl (she doesn't find out).
Before I went - I dressed Harper up in her own little camo outfit and took her picture. She gets the camo for daddy but the big bow for me!
Does anyone else want to break out into "I'm a little bit country....I'm a little bit rock & roll"
This picture makes me laugh. It's like she's saying "Oh No you DIDN'T" when she found out I left her home asleep with her daddy to keep her while I was out having fun with my friends.

Do any of you have bunco groups that you play with? Isn't it SO fun??? We have done a sports theme, high school theme, Pajamas theme, camo theme, 80's theme, Hawaiian luau theme...........do you have any more fun themes for us in the future to try? I think the themes make it even more fun and everyone always participates!

(Okay - here I am in the empty chair - I was there. Wish you could see my camo pants!)

MOM OF 2 said...

Am I the first to comment??? This Friday is Bunco for my group. I love going and talking to the ladies. We do the 2nd Friday in the month. I can't wait for January because I will be hosting for the first time. :)

Erin said...

I love our Bunco group. The hostess always picks the theme and we center our food around it. We don't dress for the theme b/c we ordered "Dice Divas" t-shirts w/ our names on them :) This months theme is "something pink" b/c of breast cancer awareness month. I host in December and am thinking about a Cookie Exchange theme...haven't officially decided yet! My favorite theme was for grandparents day, we did a "gmas favorite recipe" theme that month.

Beth said...

I played last night! It always so much fun. I like how your group does themes and may have to mention to my girls. Harper is too cute!
Beth

Lexie said...

you should do 80's theme...that would be fun!

Melanie said...

I love bunco and it's a lot of fun with a large group. Here are a few theme ideas...80's attire, worst bridesmaid dress, western, flapper, Hawaiian. Hope this helps! Have fun!

Courtney said...

That looks like such a great time!

Victoria said...

I just love the "oh no you didn't" face :)
And the huge bow of course.. and the little girl wearing it!

Meredith said...

Love that you had a great time at Bunco! I have only played once w/ Mama and her friends! We had a ball! As far as a theme, what about a Mexican Fiesta? That's always fun! Or a Fall Fest (not necessarily Halloween but like next month you can still do something during Fall time! :) ). I was wondering, are yall loooking for anyone else to play bunco?? I would love to play if yall need anyone! ;)

Auntie D said...

I never thought I would love Bunco as much as I do. Our neighborhood ladies started one almost a year ago! I am excited for our Oct. Bunco. We are all suppose to wear a funny hat! I haven't found the "right" one yet...but am excited to see what everyone wears!

Mel's Mom said...

I love the themed ideas. I'm not part of a bunco group but you make me want to be part of one! :)

Harper is a such a camo cutie! Love the onesie!

Summer said...

That party looked like fun! Harper is sooo cute... A Camo Cute Huh! I love that pic too with her mouth open.... that was too funny! You crack me up!
Summer :0)

Harris Family said...

I LOVE girls' Bunco night. Camo is a cute theme! I hope Harper is feeling better! We were back at the doctor again today. Man, I feel like we are never going to be a healthy family again!!!! Her camo top is precious!

DeFeo Diary said...

kelly - unrelated to bunco (although love the theme idea)... my second little one is 6 months old and is a bit spirited. basically, nothing makes her happy. however, based on your suggestion i thought i'd give praise baby a shot. i have teared up twice today because she loves it. even if it's 5 minutes here or there. she's content for a few minutes and giggles at it and i love that she's hearing these songs and i can worship with her and get my head on straight for the day. thank you so much. love your blog.

Mrs. Jenk said...

go biker- always fun!

Brittney said...

Bunco is so much fun! Our group has a blast and our themes are more decor related rather than clothing. My month is June and I always have a hard time picking a theme. Thanks for the ideas. Harper is absolutely precious. My little Sophia is 7 months old and we enjoy seeing what's ahead of us. Have a great evening.

The Allens said...

That Camo outfit is SO cute!

Erin said...

We play Skipbo most Friday nights but we have never had themes. Cute idea!

Carrie said...

Such a cute idea. Would it be possible to share the strawberry cake ball recipe? It sounds way too delicious.

Jeff and Steph said...

Ha!!! You Southern girls kill me! Similar to almond bark and monogramming... I have no idea what Bunco is???!!! Is it a southern thing? All of my midwestern friends played Euchre...but no Bunco!

Miller Family said...

We have themes at my BUNCO too! We have done the typical Mexican, Hawaiian, pajamas, bridesmaid dress, Halloween costume. We have also done flip flops, chocolate night where you wore chocolate brown and then we had a chocolate fountain! That was a fun night!

I played last night too! I LOVE BUNCO!

April Jackson said...

I love my bunco group! We just had our first theme night last month which was a slumber party theme. You just gave me lots of good theme ideas though! I look forward to bunco every month.

Caitlin said...

How do y'all do your alternates? We started with just 12, but then quickly added 4 more as people had conflicts. I am afraid that after the holidays, we are going to have too many people. Ideas?

Moni said...

80's Prom!!

Chey-Anne Smart said...

Kelly, can you post what she put on top of her cream cheese? I've been looking for different things to put on top and I was just curious as to what that was!

Looks like you guys had a great time. I cant wait for the next one so that I can join in on the fun.

BeickerFamily said...

Was that Candy Corn and Salted Peanuts on the tables??? That is my absolute favorite October treat. It tastes just like a PayDay! Love your blog!!

LittleGirlsX3 said...

Harper IS such a cutie! I hope I didn't scare you guys at Francesca's today; I had just been at the gym! I have 3 girls and you are in for a great, wonderful ride. Reading your blog brings back so many memories. My suggestion for bunco is a Redneck theme; guaranteed laughs! Best wishes to your sweet family.

LuLu said...

Have you tried LCR?? You should play that one night...SO MUCH FUN!!

Loving the "Camo Cutie!" She looks oh-so-cute!!!

Janell said...

hey kelly...our bunco group has been going strong for over 5 years. every june we hold a kid's bunco. my friend reserves her church and all of the kids come. we bring a $5 gift per child and they actually "play" bunco, rotate tables, etc. at the end, everyone gets a prize and then the kids get to make their own ice cream sundaes. they LOVE it and always ask when we are going to do it again!

here is a link to my blog post about it:

A Wedding Story said...

Love the Camo Cutie~!

Karen said...

Hi Kelly, our neighborhood plays Bunco although we have been on a bit of a hiatus since the Summer. I am hoping we start up again soon. I love all your Bunco themes!!!

Karen

Gretta said...

Being from the South, it is always fun to make fun of the stereotypes in the South so what about a "Redneck Rivera" theme?? You could dress up like country-bumpkins and have Vegas style decorations! Just an idea....wish I had a Bunco group. It looks like so much fun!

Lucy Marie said...

I feel out of the loop here - I don't even know what bunco is! But, I DO have a hubby who is a hardcore hunter, so I have a great appreciation for the camo. Looks like fun!

Amy said...

is your friend rachel related to your friend hillary? they really favor.

mer@lifeat7000feet said...

I have a neighborhood Bunco group! LOVE IT!

We don't always do themes, but maybe I'll try camo bunco when it's my turn to host in January!

Jennifer said...

What a fun theme! I have a hunter of a husband too and would definitely have plenty to choose from to wear!

I throw silly girls night parties from time to time. I usually use movies as my inspiration. I threw a Hairspray Hop and we actually did big hair on each other and watched the movie. I also threw a Pirate Party in honor of pirates of the caribbean. We had an ugly bridesmaid dress party for 27 dresses - it's super fun. I haen't done one in a while, but I love theme parties AND the fellowship with my girlfriends!

Brandi said...

How cute is Harper in her camo. I have never played bunco but have always wanted too. The camo theme is great.

Kristy said...

We've had the normal ones, but we did GO GREEN in March and we play for money instead of prizes! So much fun! I love Bunco night!

Marley said...

We have eight girls playing, and have potluck or dutch dinner during the summer months. For one of the months at my house, I had each lady bring their favorite dish with the recipe printed out. I made them little recipe books from mini photo albums for a dollar. They got to try new recipes and take them home in their own recipe book. We win gifts, so I bought cookware and other related items as gifts. I also wrapped them up with mixing spoons on the outside. Everyone loved it. We also have had a salad night, each lady brings a different kind of salad, pasta salad, fruit salad, taco salad, etc... I had a green themed night for March on St. Patrick's day, since my married name is Sullivan!

Stefanie said...

In college we did a super hero themed party. It was really fun. Everyone came dressed as their own "alter ego super hero." There were some fun costumes and heroes.

jenn said...

sports team theme, superhero theme is always fun..and you could always do state fair themed food..yummy fried goodness:)

Clementsville: Population of 4! said...

so cute!! We do bunco but NEVER do a theme... this is such a great idea!! I LOVE bunco and look forward to it each month!!!

Harper's last picture cracked me up!! Especially since it looks like she really is wanting to say "ON NO YOU DIDN'T"...

HILARIOUS!!!!

Christy said...

Ummm....I think I'm the only one commenting that has no idea what bunco is :) Help a Canadian girl out?

Brittany said...

How about an ugly prom/bridesmaid dress theme? Even if you didn't keep your monstrosities, there should be one to borrow or find for cheap at a thrift store.

2boys+mom said...

Two of my favorite themes are 1)PJs and Pearls and 2) Hats and Heels. I hosted a Hats and Heels over Derby week this year and we all had so much fun with the outrageous hats.

Sarah said...

We just got a group started last month. Our first night was Fiesta themed. We had taco cups, queso, homemade salsa and chips, and Pioneer Woman's tres leches. It was so much fun! Our next night is next week and it is Halloween themed!

Mandi said...

Oh what a cutie! I think I bought my best friend that same onsie because her husband is in the Army and I thought it was just the cutest thing ever!

Brittany said...

We did a bridesmaids bunko. Everyone wore old bridesmaid dresses and we had petifores!

We always do Bunk-o-ween every October and everyone dresses up.

Very fun! And I need some good ideas, so this is great!

Mike and Cymbre said...

I don't have a Bunco group right now...I am hoping to form a group soon though! I'll keep the theme idea in mind!! My sister and her friends have a group. She hopes to start doing theme nights but for now, they are just doing a Halloween costume night. She's going as Punky Brewster!

SayraH said...

How cute & fun! I'm a bit lost, though--what is bunko? LoL. I have never heard of it.
Sounds like a blast though!

*God Bless! :)

Amy said...

loooove bunco! we did a "kentucky derby" theme where everyone wore big hats - it was great fun! we've also done a "costume" theme and a "revenge of the nerds" theme...yeah, we're cool like that ;)

Brooke said...

I just joined a bunco group. I have played for fun with family but I am excited to be in an actual group!!

ButterFlyLayD said...

I would really LOVE it if u could share the strawberry cake ball receipe! They look yummy!

Melissa Miller said...

How fun! Cute pics of Harper! :)

Patty said...

I LOVE bunco night! We play next Wednesday...I always look forward to that night, even if it is only a few hours away, it's so nice to have the girl-talk and friendship! We never do themes - not sure we'd really get much playing done if we did! We always have fun finger foods and drinks and laugh until we are teary eyed! Instead of themes we have secret pals. Every month you can opt to bring your secret pal a gift and leave on the porch. After the games are over, the hostess brings in and distributes the gifts. At Christmas we reveal who our secret pals are...so fun!! :)

Andrea Frederick said...

I'm a newbie to your blog. A friend and I started a Bunco group this year. We have a monthly theme for food like: mexican, all salads, all dips, breakfast, etc. We had shirts made and always call ourselves D.I.P.S. dames in pajamas! It is absolutely a great time!

Gayle @ thewestiecrew said...

Cracking UP at that last picture of Harper!!! :D

And your friend Rachel doesn't even look pregnant! Her little boy is beautiful.

I don't have a Bunco group, but I would absolutely LOVE to! I've heard that they are so much fun.

angie said...

LOVE Bunco!!!! We recently had a Wild Wild West Theme....so much FUN!!! It is always fun to see how everyone will dress!!

Marlana said...

How fun that you have themes with your Bunco nights. We currently have a group of teachers that get together and I use to Bunco with friends from high school. I've won a few times, but I love the fact that you are sitting at different tables with people and getting to socialize with everyone. :) Your group looks like lots of fun!

Kelli said...

Ours this month was a THINK PINK theme in honor of breast cancer awareness month. All of our prizes were ones that donated to the cause! And of course LOTS of pink food and pink clothes!

Taylor said...

Yes, I play Bunco...I absolutely enjoy myself as well. We have tons of themes; all depends on what month, and what might be going on in that month. Like this month we are having a Fall Bunco, so all of our prizes will be related to fall! Other themes have been: Hurricane Party, Snow Men, Football Tailgating, Easter, Summer Picnic, St. Patrick's Day...and the list goes on and on. Check out my blog b/c I have posted about our buncos here and there!

Allikaye's Mama said...

Isn't it funny that the one thing that is sticking with me from this post, are the strawberry cakeballs! I want them!! Yum!! Oh - and Miss Harper sure does look fabulous!!!
xoxo

Lemonade Makin' Mama said...

That little bow just slays me every time girl... I mean it. She should never be bow-less, she is just that cute!!

Chelsa said...

i tried to make cake balls this week, but they fell apart when i dipped them in the chocolate?!?! they still tasted good, but i had a mess!

i let them chill... ???

Juggling Thoughts said...

How about Favorite Celebrity day! That's always a fun one!

What a fun idea, Kelly!

Jenn@the loves of jenn said...

I play Bunco but we never do themes...what a great idea!

Kimberly C. said...

Hello,

I love reading your blogs!! I wished I lived closer and could help babysit Harper if needed.

I was thinking of a retro night theme, or a beach party theme, or a look-a-like day (you can all dress like someone else in the group :) ) or even two of you can dress the same and have a twin night!

I wished I had a game night like that. Sounds like so much fun!

Staci said...

LOVE bunco! I was just introduced to it through some teachers at my school. We haven't gotten into themes, but that sounds super fun!

Brittney said...

FUN! I'll have to make the cake balls soon - looks so yummy!

THEMES: Cowboy/Cowgirl, Mix Match Day, Nerd/Geek Day, Stripes and polka dots, Tie-Dye

there are some fun things you could do :)

Sherri @ Luv a Bargain said...

What a great idea! I have heard bunco is sooo much fun. Wish we could see your camo:)

Shannon said...

I play bunco but we don't do themes. Maybe I should mention it.. it looked like fun!! How do you all do the prizes?

Sara said...

I love Bunko! We play once a month and are approaching out "1 year anniversary." Our themes have been Mexican fiesta, Pajama night with breakfast foods, Halloween costumes with caramel apple bar and fave summer foods.

The Williamson's said...

With Christmas around the corner, why not do a Christmas sweater party??!!! We all have a horrible Christmas sweatshirt or sweater and if we don't our mothers do : ) What a great conversation starter(and laughs) that would be!!!

Trac~ said...

Awww... I REALLY miss playing Bunco and hope I can get a group going here sometime in the future. However, my idea for you that we did one time was "THE RED HAT LADIES" and we also all wore our pajamas - we had a BLAST! Just an idea - not sure if anyone else has given you that suggestion or not. :o)

Sara said...

I have a neighborhood Bunco group too and love the time with friends! WE have never done themes but what a great idea! looks like fun and harper is a doll!

Brittany said...

Aww:) Sounds fun! My daughter has the same Camo onesie:)

Holly said...

I love bunko. We've had slumber party (no table we sat on sleeping bags), fiesta, 80's, tacky christmas sweater, halloween costume, hollywood theme, oriental, and in november we are having our fist prom night.

Darla said...

Most of the ones we've done have been listed, but one cute one I haven't seen was a "Back to School" theme. The hostess used styrofoam plates that have all the sections ... like a school lunch tray. It was really cute. Filled up some cute glass jars with glue, crayons, and pencils (she got it at all at the back to school sales when glue is like 25 cents). Anyway... she had lots of cute back to school ideas. Everyone got an apple to take home. :) Could be fun when your babies get a little bigger.

Girl with the Curlz said...

O.K. no one up here by me plays bunco. It looks like you all have so much fun. I guess I am going to have to start my own group. I love Harper's outfit. Adorable!!

The B's said...

Do a carnival theme!

I am in carnival mode b/c we are doing Emma's birthday as a "carnival" this weekend. I'm about to lose my mind! :)

Lindsay Willman said...

*Halloween Costumes
*Ugly Christmas Sweaters
*Prom Night
*Derby (Big Hats)
*Pink (make a donation to the Cancer Society - October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month)

The Taffs said...

I LOVE my Bunco group! Such a fun night. I play with a bunch of ladies I teach with and it's so nice to see each other outside of school!

It would be fun to have a dinner theme? Mexican? (any excuse for Mexican...mmmm....)

~Mrs. Guru~ said...

Awe, looks like you guys had fun and Harper is so precious!

Tonya said...

I love Bunco! I play with the NICU nurses who took such great care of my 6 year old when she was born at 25 weeks. They are the group that I just walked with in the Atlanta Breast Cancer walk, too. We don't do themes but I think that's a great idea! The first time I played, I did so bad that I stayed at the SAME table ALL night! I never left the first table - just rotated chairs - and no one really wanted to be my partner ;-) It was still fun and I've had several "Bunco's" since! Thanks for sharing your fun time with us!

crgolden said...

Oh how I love my Bunco group! We get together the 2nd Thursday of each month. It never seems to come fast enough and then it goes by so fast once we get there. I love knowing that once a month I am going to get a couple of hours of just me time.

We dont do themes very often but we do have a big Christmas party every year. We reserve a room at a resturant and do an ornament exchange. We dont actually play that month but everyone is invited including subs, so it is a large group. We have a blast all getting together and laughing!

Harper is a cutie (I have 2 princesses myself and I love every minute of it.)

Diane said...

I don't have a bunco group, but my MIL has one that meets every month. She hosted last month & the theme was Woodstock. It was hilarious!

Nancy said...

Our Bunco group has done...white trash (we had vienna sausage, spam, etc.), crazy hat theme, I did a greek night @ mine, and we always dress up for our Halloween Bunco. Isn't it so much fun?
My daughter has a camo cutie hat I just put on a post...my hubby is a hunter, too!

Angela said...

We just recently did a tailgate theme! It was so fun! We also have done a birthday theme, luau theme, and a costume theme.
I have been meaning to email you for months. My daughter,Emme, is just a few weeks older than Harper. It has been such a treat to read your blog.
I also have a great ROTEl recipe that I need to share with you. It is yummy! :)Ang

Amanda said...

We don't do themes very much, but we have done Backwoods Bunco before which was a big hit. In my old group I did a baseball theme and served foods that you'd find at a ball park concession stand. That was fun, but I didn't think my current group would appreciate fake cheese nachos, huge pickles and hot dogs.

Misti said...

I love Bunco! My moms group used to get together once a month & play, but then participation started waning so we stopped. ;o/ I love the idea of themes! If we ever start back up I'll have to suggest that!

sjhofer said...

I love to play bunco. My young adult Sunday School class plays every year with a older adult class at church. It is a great way to get to know some other people at church and we have a great time together. We usually start the night out with a potluck and social time.

christim73 said...

Where did you get the Camo Cutie Onsie?
My husband is a huge hunter and when I found out I was pregnant I told him by giving him 2 camo onsies one was for a girl (but it wasn't pink) and the other for a boy. The camo theme is too cute!

~aj~ said...

Kelly, you actually inspired me to start my own Bunco group! I've never before played, but have a good friend that has (at her old church in Little Rock) and together we've gone and made us our own group from church and I am SOOOO excited. I know it's going to be great fun and bring us all closer together and I think inviting non church members whenever someone can't make it will be a WONDERFUL ministry opportunity. So thank you, thank you for inspiring me!!!

As for themes, we're doing 80s as our first one (tomorrow!) and I know it's going to be a hoot. Some of our other ideas are ones you've already mentioned, but I think a Nerd/Geek night would be HILARIOUS. Also, my friend's Bunco group did couple Bunco for the month of February and I am really looking forward to that. The thought of our husbands playing Bunco just makes me laugh. :)

~aj~ said...

I forgot to mention that thos are some of my favorite Harper pictures, EVER!

The Bradshaw's said...

Bunco is such a blast - I do it on the 1st Monday of every month. Have such fun with the ladies. Great pics. And I love reading your blog

Melanieshea said...

We just started a new Bunco group last month. It is my first time ever playing and I am soooo excited!!!

I am hosting this month at my home...actually it is tomorrow night. ha!!! I am taking a break from cooking/baking chili, cookies & pumpkin bread to blog, lol!!!!

Since it is October, I am going with a fall/halloween theme. We are dressing up and there will be a vote at the end for best costume!

Looks like you all had a great time!!!!

Cynthia Meeks said...

So cute! I don't have a group but my sis in law's group did a gardening theme where people wore gardening stuff (some wore flower things and some had gardening tools and shoes, etc.) I was also thinking about a chef theme, chef hats and coats and cute aprons and hot mitts! And maybe even a little flour on your face? Who knows? Well I hope that helps!

Lauren @ When Happiness Finds You said...

I think you should dress up as yourself "circa 7th grade." Wouldn't that be fun? :)

kaylynrenee said...

Oh Kelly, where did you get those ADORABLE pink genie (?) pants that Harper is wearing with her camo?!

Leah said...

Kelly,
Let me first say.. that I love your blog! You are such an amazing woman.. I don't see how you do it all! I'm writing cause I wanted to know where you got your awesome background.. it's too cute. I'm new to blogging and trying to learn the ropes. Also, you know a good friend of mine.. Kate from Flo of Flotrude. She was my sorority adviser at OU and a dear friend.. small world!

SouthernGalsBoutique said...

I have never played Bunco!!! I'll have to research this game!! Looks like a great time.

Katie Bug said...

How about a "Wear your old bridesmaid's dress" theme? I am planning to do a party along those lines soon.

MikeandLynette said...

I play BUNCO once per month with an awesome group of ladies from my church. One of my favorite themes is the "Ugly Christmas Sweater" which we do (obviously) in December :) The stuff people come up with is pretty funny :)

Luke and Courtney Brewer said...

When I lived in Arkansas, I was ALWAYS in a Bunco group, but I've tried to get one started in Savannah, and people think it's weird here. Ugh!! They're missing out! I miss AR for so many reasons...but this is definitely one of them!

KK said...

So thankful you have this fun girls time! The camo is too cute, especially little Miss Harper's and her expressions are priceless.
Thanks for sharing.
Blessings today and always,
Kaye

Melissa's Thoughts said...

I love Bunco. Our group plays the first Friday every other month and November is our month. We normally have season themes because of when we get together, but we don't dress up. That would be a cute idea for next time. Love Harper's Camo's

Sarah said...

I love Bunco!!! We have done a few theme nights as well. I think one of my favorites was prom night!! We all dressed up in old (or new) prom dresses! It was a great night!

aLena said...

I've never heard of Bunco ... But guess that's probably cuz I'm from Cali.

You should do a Halloween costume theme ... that would be fun!!!

Jennifer said...

Bunco is so fun! I go every month and look so forward to it. Here are a few other themes that we've done that you haven't listed. There may be some repeats since I haven't read the posts before me:

* Fiesta (w/ Mexican food)
* 70's
* Halloween
* breakfast
* White Trash

Crystal said...

Glad you were able to get out with friends and have some fun! Hope Harper is feeling better!

sjm4him said...

Glad you got out...Harper is SO ADORABLE in her "camo cutie" socks...I might shouldn't tell you but Trumpette (the same company that makes her Mary Jane socks) makes girl camo colors, I think! They have a website...anyway, just when I think Harper can't get any cuter...it's just TOO MUCH! :) Thanks for making my day-again! Blessings!!

Hunter and Hailey's mom said...

My high school friends and I get together the last thursday of the month to play bunco...the host has supper and a dessert cooked for the group. We rotate host every month. Last month was my month to host. We did School Spirit for football sason. Months past we have done Wiggin' Out, Biker Babes, White Trash, Tea Party, Polka dots, crazy hats, We did one for Child Abuse Prevention and brought things for CASA. This month of course will be Halloween costume Bunco.

Laura said...

I love playing bunco!! I used to play it all the time with my family when we would visit in TN:) I just moved to a new area in Newnan and would love to start up a group to play...We are currently to church where we always have but will be looking for a new church home after Christmas. It's too far of a drive for us to be involved. Maybe I can find some ladies in our new church home to start a group! Great Idea with the changing themes!! So much fun!!

Toni :O) said...

My mom ALWAYS played bunco once a month with her friends...hearing that bell ring always made me giggle. How neat you have that tradition and I HAVE to make those cake balls...yummo! Your daughter is so adorable and I love checking in on your blog...too cute!

hsturner said...

We are doing Indian Names for our next Bunco and we might dress the part too. I think I might be squaw Winintonight!

The Shuman Family said...

Love BUNCO!!! Other ideas or themes that we have done: Christmas: bring a gift/toy for a child and donate to a local group during holidays; Easter: bring a prepared Easter Basket and donate; and bring new childrens books and donate to children's ward at the hospital. It is always fun to win the prize at BUNCO night, but it is also FUN to give...

kristenandeliwolfe said...

Our neighborhood girls play Bunco on the first Thursday every month! Its so fun! We usually only get through one game because we talk so much!!!

Jessica said...

You know, I have never played Bunco, but I know so many people who have and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. I like the fact that you all dress up to play, too though! How fun is that?!

Oh, and you always get the most adorable pictures of Harper. So cute!

SassyCassie said...

I love bunco! I've only played once, but it was a ton of fun. Your group makes me want to start one and have theme nights!
