If you are lucky enough to be in a bunco group with women who are accepting and kind, with little or no drama, thank your lucky stars!! I am lucky enough to have found just that group of women.
Here are some fun (zenful) ideas for hosting your own bunco night.
I used jars that I had lying around and put dice in the bottom of them with a candle. Simple and easy!
I made this cute banner for the “Bunco Bitches”
I used cream cheese blocks and shaped them into squares and used olives to make it look like dice. Then served with crackers and veggies.
I made the dice for the cupcakes with sugar cubes and an edible marker. (Note: Do not put the dice on the cupcakes until right before serving them. Mine bled a little into the frosting!) But they turned out super cute and everyone loved them!
For the drink, I served a full liter of Lemonade mixed with a bottle of Moscato and garnished with Raspberries, Lemons & Mint. (Totally forgot to get a picture of it!)
I’m all about simple and for the most part, these food items were easy to make! The sugar cubes took a little time, but I did them the night before so I wasn’t stressed the day of the event.
For prizes, I did 6 individual gift baskets for the big winners!
#1 Camping Basket: Graham crackers, Marshmallows, Hershey’s Chocolate, Camping Flashlight, Bug Spray, Bandana & First Aid Kit
#2 Summertime Basket: Pinwheel, Sunscreen, Lemonade, Plastic Poolside Cup, & Lip Balm

The rest of the ladies that didn’t win a big prize received a loofah and a bath bomb in a cute gift bag.
(As you can tell, I also forgot to get a picture of the prizes!! Does anyone else forget to take pictures when you are hosting?)
If you have other fun ideas for hosting a bunco night, I would love to hear them!! Then I can be ready for the next time I host!
