My turn to host Bunco is over for the year. All the prep and now, today, the clean up after the clean up. All that sprucing just to make a mess. I did get some photos right before everyone arrived. I am so tired today I ended up posting them in the opposite order from the way I wanted them. Oh well, it will do. I have no pictures of the actual Bunco game because, as you girls who play know, it moves way too fast for any camera action. We did have a blast though. My theme was New Year and a bit of winter. My snowman plates were fitting as it started to snow about 45 minutes before everyone was due to arrive. We had one girl cancel at the last minute so , guess what? My husband Joe is now a sub!
I think he really enjoyed his Bunco experience. He even got a Bunco and he won a prize. Too funny.
In the New Year tradition I served a Rueben casserole with sauerkraut and a black eyed pea salad. Plus lots of appetizers and cake and ice cream for dessert. I also made champagne punch. I forgot to take a picture of the punch bowl, it was so pretty.
I set up my three tables in the family room, cafe style. White burlap was used for the table toppers. I think the girls got a kick out of Joe playing with us. My son was in the basement and said that at first all he heard were the women laughing and yelling, then he started hearing his dad yelling too. He definitely got caught up in the Bunco spirit.
I suppose we will have to add him to our sub list now.
It is so nice to have a tidy house, even if only for an evening.
Back to clean up. It was fun while it lasted.
Have a tidy Thursday, P.
