One year in November my Bunco group held a Formal Bunco. It was so much fun! We all dressed up. Some of us were fancier than others but we all wore dresses. Our potluck was done differently as well. We had people sign up for food which included a variety of appetizers, salads, bread and dessert. The hostess provided pasta as the main dish. For added fun we had a sit down dinner instead of our usual buffet.
For dessert we had a chocolate fountain. People brought decadent dippers for the fountain. Cheesecake pieces, cookies, pretzels, strawberries, marshmallows and dried fruit all tasted delicious dipped in the chocolate. For my small fountain, it takes two packages of chocolate chips melted and mixed with 3/4 cup of vegetable oil. I love a mix of premium bittersweet and semi-sweet chocolate, yum!
Typically we use paper plates, plastic utensils and plastic cups at our Bunco games. Formal Bunco is the time to break out the fine China, actual silverware and glasses. It really was nice for a change. We spent extra time socializing and enjoying each others company.
Whenever someone rolls a Bunco we pass around a necklace, usually one that pertains to the theme. At this Bunco we passed around a feather boa for a more formal touch.
The prizes were for pampering the Bunco Babe. Bubble bath, shower gel, mud masks and nail polish were some of the items that people won that evening. Formal Bunco was a fun time for all. It was a nice change from the casual approach we usually take and a wonderful indulgence, especially for a busy mom like me.
