Hosting a bunco party is a great way to enjoy the company of others, have good food and drinks and play a fun and exciting game. If you host a themed bunco party, you’re able to take the excitement to another level. You can add decorations, delicious themed food and even costumes. Coming up with unique bunco theme ideas will also set your party ahead of others that you have attended.

One great bunco theme idea to host in the fall months is “Cool November”. Since the outdoor temperatures are starting to drop, the leaves have already fallen off the trees and the snow is getting closer, “Cool November” is a very fitting bunco theme idea.

There are two color schemes that you can use for this bunco theme idea. You can go with the colors of autumn and Thanksgiving, brown, orange and gold. Or you can go with a cooler color palette featuring blue, white and silver. Either color combination works with this bunco theme idea.

 

If you decide to go with the autumn and Thanksgiving colors, you can decorate with leaves, fresh flowers, pumkins, gourds and indian corn. You can serve autumn recipes that include pumpkin pie tartlets, turkey sandwiches, cranberry bread and baked apples. A wonderful cocktail than can highlight the evening is a cinnamon toast which is made with spiced dark rum and apple cider. Make your opponants cocktails extra strong, they’ll appreciate the indulgence and you’ll appreciate their lack of concentration during the game.

 

If you go the other route with this bunco theme idea, you will be using cold looking décor and food. The cold weather bunco theme idea should have decorations that make you feel like you are stepping into winter weather. Hang paper snowflakes from the ceiling, cover tables with blue tablecloths and white glitter and line the bottom of wine and martini glasses with cotton balls. Foods that would work perfectly with this bunco theme are stuffed mushrooms, mini meatballs, cheese fondue and bacon wrapped dates. The perfect cocktail to go with your cool color palette is a blue champagne cocktail made with blue curacao, lemon vodka and champagne.

 

If you are planning on hosting a bunco party in autumn, the best bunco theme idea is “cool November”. It is versatile, festive and fun. Don’t forget to get enough bunco supplies, have a variety of food and plenty of  ingredients for the delicious cocktails. Most importantly, don’t gloat too much when you win the game, just enough to make everyone jealous.

Fellow Bunco Babes!

Tonight I was thinking…how many of us out there know the actual rules of bunco?  This can be quite a topic of discussion.  Maybe some of us play a little differently, maybe we don’t have enough people or not enough time to get through the entire bunco game?  Well, follow this link and you can get all the bunco rules your heart desires!! http://buncogameshop.com/buncorules1.html

It’s time to start thinking seriously about our boobies…yes, I said it!  Look at them…give em’ a squeeze!  What would we do without them??

A Bunco Themed Fundraiser

Bunco is an exciting game that can lead to hours of fun, so why not put the game to use and raise some money while having a bunco fundraiser blast. It’s an easy, fun, and rewarding way to raise money for the cause of your choice.

First, decide which charity or event you will be bunco fundraising for. Think of an amount you want to raise and keep that in mind when planning the bunco fundraiser. You will need to decide how many people you want to attend, how much the entry-fee is, and extras you can add to make the fundraiser more appealing.

When deciding the number of entries, be sure to keep the number divisible by 12 since each regular bunco game includes 12 players. If you decide to have 48 players at your bunco fundraiser, you will have 4 separate games. Knowing the number of people will also help decide the entry fee. If you want to raise $1200, each of the 48 players will have a $25 entry fee.

Make your bunco fundraiser enjoyable! You want your guests to enjoy themselves and to feel like they are donating to a good cause. Be sure to have plenty of information on the charity or event you are raising money for, in case the guests would like to know more. To keep the fun going, add some different events to the bunco game. You could have each chair numbered and have the guests pick a number out of a jar when they first arrive. The corresponding number and chair will be there first spot during the game. This will give the guests the opportunity to venture out and meet new people.

Adding a silent auction to your fundraising event is an excellent way to earn even more money. Talk with local businesses and see if they will donate gift cards, services, and items for the auction. Many large retailers commonly donate for fundraisers. You can also do a 50/50 raffle. Your guests are sure to enter this since they will have a chance of winning some money.

You can look to local businesses to donate food, drinks, and prizes for the bunco fundraiser event. If you cannot get businesses to donate, figure in an extra amount in the entry fee for snacks, drinks and small prizes. Having these available will make the bunco event more enjoyable. Keep the prizes low in cost, but fun. Gag gifts are a great way to stretch your dollar, and bring a smile to the winners face.

Finally, remember that you are doing this for a good cause and remember to enjoy yourself. Bunco is a fun and entertaining game that can help you, help those in need.

When your bunko gals get together, do you have a bit of an attitude? It is a girl’s night out after all, so do you follow through with that theme all night long and pretend there isn’t anything that can get you down? If you are one of those bunko groups that have a girl power attitude, then you need some paper supplies to match the mood. The Queen is Always Right Napkins are a great way to do that.

The Queen is Always Right napkins might make you snicker a bit when you first see them. If you aren’t the hostess, you may wonder if the Queen is referring to your hostess! Of course, you can’t all be Queens, right? Wrong! Everyone who picks up this rd and pink napkin can be Queen for a few minutes as they wipe their mouth or their fingers. The napkins come in a package of twenty. They are strong, with three-ply paper folded over in a dinner size. The design has a bunch of different crowns with jewels around the edge, with the words The Bunco Queen is Always Right’ written in black ink in the center. Very fun and playful looking.

They could even be used at a birthday party or other event like a Mother’s Day Brunch or a tea gathering at church. The Queen is Always Right Napkins can be used in addition to a theme you have going for the night. Are you having the Queen of Hearts Night?? Maybe a Royalty themed night. No matter what your theme, these napkins can just go with any type of decoration you have that is pink or red.

Order a bunch so you can have them in time for when you need paper goods at your next bunko bash.
