October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
It is the perfect time of year to throw a Pink Ribbon Bunco party. A party such as this can be held as a fundraiser or as your monthly Bunco group’s theme. Your Bunco group could decide to forgo it’s winnings this month and donate.
I have been to both types of Pink Ribbon Bunco. Bunco for Breast Cancer is an annual event held in my city. It is held on the patio of a Mexican restaurant and there are hundreds of players. It is so much fun and great prizes are given away. I won an amazing Pampered Chef basket one year and another year set of neckties for my husband.
My Bunco group has also had a Pink Ribbon Bunco theme in the past and we are planning another one later this month. Everyone gets into the spirit and wears pink! I will be decorating my chandelier with these adorable pink ribbon lanterns. Our Bunco sheets will be printed on pink paper (of course!) and each player will have a cute Pink Ribbon pen on a rope. The head table will be playing with novelty pink ribbon dice . I can’t wait until the ladies see these! Also, a friend of mine who sells awesome organizational products will be at our Bunco game. There will be prizes such as pink key fobs and lanyards wrapped in mini Pink Ribbon bags. One lucky player will go home with a prize from a giveaway!
No Pink Ribbon Bunco party would be complete without some pink drinks like pink lemonade or a pink lady cocktail. Bowls of pink treats would be fun to snack on. Think pink candy coated chocolate pieces, pink malted milk balls, licorice, etc. Pink paper plates, napkins , cups and tablecloths are a must too. Pink Lemonade cupcakes would be a festive addition to the dessert table. I made these cupcakes for a baby girl shower and they were both pretty and delicious.
My group uses two Bunco necklaces during our games. The necklaces change depending on the theme. For October Bunco we will be using these fun Pink Ribbon Bunco necklaces. They are sturdy and will be fine being tossed across the room. They can be used again at next year’s Pink Ribbon Bunco game! If you get the first Bunco you get to wear a necklace throughout the game and you get your money back. The other necklace we pass around each time someone gets a Bunco and the person with the last Bunco wins a prize.
Are you going to have a Pink Ribbon Bunco this month? Have you had one in the past? Let me know about it on our Facebook page.
Keep Calm and Play Bunco,
