One of my Bunco group’s favorite theme is Pajama Party Bunco. What’s not to love? You get to show up in your pajamas, robe and fuzzy slippers and eat breakfast food (when it isn’t actually breakfast time!).
A Mimosa or Bloody Mary (either non-alcoholic or otherwise) would be a lovely way to start out. Breakfast favorites lend themselves perfectly to potluck. Muffins, croissants, casseroles, waffles, cinnamon rolls, sausage, bacon, the list could go on and on. I love all of those things! However, I wanted to shake it up a bit! Oatmeal in a slow cooker with a toppings bar is so much fun! Some ideas are dried cranberries, golden raisins, nuts, brown sugar, honey, chopped apples, cinnamon, you get the idea. This way there is a healthier option that people can customize. Another idea for a crowd is make your own breakfast burritos. Make some scrambled eggs and keep warm in a slow cooker. Have some warmed tortillas, cheese, meats, breakfast potatoes, salsa, sour cream, avocado, etc.so that each person can customize a burrito to her liking. Easy yet delicious and something most people will enjoy. If you prefer not to serve breakfast food, you could go the traditional route and make it a pizza party. That is fun too!
Now onto the actual Bunco game. Some prizes for this theme may include sleep masks, fuzzy socks, fleece throws,a Bunco apron even small packages of cinnamon rolls or muffins. Everyone can vote on who is the most festive and she could win a prize–fuzzy slippers maybe! There could be a fun movie such as, Girls Just Want To have Fun (one of my favs!) playing in the background. We always have a ton of fun with this theme. Some ladies wear pink rollers in their hair and are decked out from head to toe. It is a fun way to start the New Year off!
