St. Patrick's Day Bunco!

Around each major holiday, a group of local wedding and event industry professionals (aka: "Holiday Bunco Club") get together to play Bunco. It is an evening of never ending laughter and dice rolling started up by the masterminds behind Pink Blossom Events and heathoriginal! After a year and a half of playing Bunco we decided it was time to photograph (thanks Alante Photography!) one of our game nights to give you a few inspirational ideas on hosting your own Bunco game! 

First things first means that no Bunco night is complete without a fancy schmancy score card. Luckily for our group, Heather, owner of heathoriginal is on hand to create each month's score cards.
Being the host I worked on the details and collaborated with 
heathoriginal to ensure the party decor fit the theme!
 
Taking inspiration from the Irish theme I created two different centerpieces to be placed at each of the three game tables. Shamrocks sprouted out of gold containers for one centerpiece while a Lucky Charms filled glass vase topped with shamrocks rocked another table. In addition to the centerpieces, tables featured crushed gold linens from Platinum Designs, a few snacks for game play munching, paper shamrocks and mini pots of gold filled with green crinkle paper and gold kisses I pulled together. 
 
Guests were invited to take home the pots of gold created by Pink Blossom Events as well as the favors filled with a rainbow of M&M created by heathoriginal.
 
  The Food
At each Bunco night guests are asked to bring $5 for the pot, an appetizer and a beverage to share! The host, in this case myself is asked to make the main dish. For March's St. Patrick's Day theme I figured a Spud Bar was the perfect fit! Yum!
 
Beverages
At every good Irish party beer is on tap! heathoriginal provided the Lucky Irish beers and drink stirrers while I provided the Irish themed wine from local winery, Ryan Patrick Vineyards!
 
  Sweet Treats!
Carla of Honey Crumb Cake Studio provided some delicious bite sized desserts including green whoopie pies and mini pies.
 
Holiday Bunco Club!
Let's be honest...it's about the drinks!

Looks like you ladies had a GREAT time. I've belonged to different bunco groups over the years, and it's always guaranteed fun. Thanks for sharing! It looks like you make a much bigger production out of the decor and themes for your events than we ever did, but what else could be expected from a group in the wedding & events industry?
