bunco romantico


i hosted bunco this month and decided to do a valentine's theme. i immediately remembered the good ol' days of making a special valentine's box to take to school and use for the valentine exchange. so, in addition to the regular festivities each of the girls brought their box/bag and we exchanged treats and cards. i served cheese fondue with cubed french bread, cubed ham, and seasoned potato wedges. and then we gorged on a chocolate fountain with all the dippers. prizes were all sorts of fabulous valentine decor & a special romantic date-night basket of goodies for the grand-prize winner (who, i might add is the girl who least needs assistance from props and treats!).

{p.s. i think i'm becoming obsessed with glitter and doilies.}

I am such a bad friend! I have been meaning to call you and tell you how sweet bunco was and how great the food was! This just reminded me!
So thanks! You sure know how to cook and host a party. I am glad I don't have to host next month to follow. =)
