I get together once a month with some of my girlfriends for Bunco. I thought it would be fun to share with all of you my Bunco Party Ideas. This month it was my month to be in charge – I love it when parties are around themes so I wanted to do my Bunco based around the theme of things I love! I had such fun getting the supplies, decorations and food all together for this party.
We always start off with dinner. When we have movie night at home we always get a pizza and I often make a yummy salad to go with. Add some popcorn and soda and the night is golden! So for Bunco I ordered pizza from one of my favorite pizza place and made a super delicious salad. This salad is to die for and is super easy It is my Bacon, Cranberry, Pecan salad.
While playing Bunco we always have treats on each of the three tables. I decided to have one table with a bunch of treats that to me are movie themed. Whenever I go out to the movies we always get candy, soda and popcorn. So of course I had to make up some Popcorn and Caramel Popcorn in the gorgeous glass canisters from World Market – I had so much fun making the Popcorn tags (Be sure to check out my Tutorial).
For candy I put out Red Vines, Frozen Junior Mints and my new favorite candy bar that ColdStone/Utah Truffles sent me for the party ColdStone Mmmmmint Chip – I first tried them and the Snap Conference I went to and fell in love! I am a huge mint lover and this bar is divine! Everyone at Bunco just loved them!
Everyone really enjoyed themselves with the treats while playing Bunco! It was so much fun!
At the end of Bunco we hand out the prizes. In our group everyone leaves with a prize – I handed out fun things from some of my favorite places. The prizes were Gift Cards to World Market (Thanks World Market!!), Gift Cards for a 60 minute massage, I made a set of my “Sweet” Watermelons as a prize, a Candle Warmer, Gift Card to Cafe Rio and then the smaller prizes were bowls full of microwavable popcorn. I really think everyone loved the prizes!
I wanted to end the night with one of my most favorite and simplest desserts – Strawberry Shortcake. This is a favorite of mine and is so quick and yummy! I just love making desserts using my Quick and Simple Strawberry Sauce.
I had such fun hosting Bunco and can’t wait until it is my turn to host again!! Do you play Bunco? What fun themes have you done at your Bunco parties?
Disclosure: I received the Utah Truffle ColdStone bars for free to give to my guests. I love these bars – all opinions are 100% mine. I also received giftcards from World Market to give out as Bunco prizes – thanks World Market!
