My neighbor organized a Bunco group in Oct. 2011; I was skeptical, thought the name was weird....Bunco is a BLAST!!!!! Good company, good food, good drinks once a month, what more could a girl ask for! I have been thinking about themes all year....every member gets a turn to host. I love hydrangeas, had them in my wedding. My own plant re-absorbs it's color after it's June bloom and becomes part green, part french lavender. Then has a second bloom in September. Perfect! My theme was born! I made all the decor and food, and thanks to my husband for watching the kids, we had a fantastic night! One friend commented on our FB Bunco page "Bethany took Bunco to a new level" haha, enjoy!

stuffed mushrooms, roasted figs with goat cheese, honey and rosemary, chicken wings, veggie salsa and chips, caprese salad with rosemary garlic bread, teriyaki chicken wings, minted melon ball salad
What People Drank
Non-alcoholic and Alcohol beverage bar; Homemade freezer margarita's were a HIT!

Bunco - 4 rounds
About $200.00 I had a lot of leftover items from my daughter's fairy garden party; tomatoes and limes were from my own garden; figs were from a local tree cut fresh (free), and 5 vases of fresh flowers all from my own hydrangea shrub
