White Themed Bunco

Erin was the beautiful hostess for this month's Bunco!

Several of you have asked me what Bunco is... and so I thought would do a quick explanation.
12 girls, 12 months.  We each host one month - you do the food, a theme, and drinks.
It's a dice game - 3 rounds.  First round, you roll for one's, then two's and so on.  You do that up to 6 (6 sides on the dice) and then you go to the next round.  After each number rolling, you switch and move seats based on if you win or lose that round.  It's confusing to explain, but very easy to play!
We all think it's just an excuse to get together, eat dinner, catch up and relax.

I am so lucky to have all of these amazing ladies in my life!
For white theme - we all wore white... she made a homemade dinner of corn, BBQ chicken, pasta salad, and salad.  White wine was the drink. :)
Our hostess and cook (with a little help from her hubs) Erin
 Tara, Shannon, Kelly, Melissa
 Jess, Michelle, Nora
Special recipe corn on the cob... it was delicious!
 Dessert!
The pups - Scout and Bo
The winner's envelopes!
This month's winners!
The gang... all in white.

Hope you have a great start to your week!
'Thankful Thursday' link up coming up again on 6/14 - 
hope you'll join in!

I want to move into your neighborhood just to join your Bunco group, always looks like a blast. Once this baby arrives, I think I'm going to start up our old group. Your posts make me miss it!

OMG I grew up going with my mom to her BUNCO nights. I dont have anyone to get together and play with every month so I am ridiculously jealous right now. Now I think I want to get a group together lol.

Cute pictures! Would your friend share the recipe for the corn? It looks like it would be delicious, and we LOVE corn at our house but grilled corn is getting kind of old...

HOW FUN!

i have to tell you, 'round these parts of SoCal, we like to call that "ghetto corn"... basically, because the people roll up to your house with an ice cream kind of cart, but it's filled with corn.. and then you put mayo, butter, parm cheese, cayene pepper, and whatever else they have...

SO. BOMB.

and this is too much fun! i wish more of my friends lives closer so we could do this!

This is such a great idea for a girls night! Great reason to get together- I might have to read up on how to play so that I can start my own Bunco party!
