Party Recap

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!
