Making up for lost time

I hosted Bunco last October and am finally getting to share with you.  I had the most fun decorating and cooking for our monthly get-together.  I made Taco Soup that was topped with delicious goodies that was supplied by my good friend Stacy.

I painted the drawers that I was able to recover from my grandmother's sewing machine cabinet and used them to hold plates, napkins and utensils.
 Galvanized buckets held our Bunco score cards and pencils.  Our talented oldest son designed our score cards from adorable free images I found on the internet.  I also attached these images to the front of another two buckets that held our candy.  Sweet Stacy also supplied this candy for us. 
 I used my old ladder that I found on the side of the road and painted to hold our buckets.  And yes, you did see this same ladder in my previous post.  I used it to hang our Christmas stockings.  It worked out great since we do not have a fireplace and mantel.

 Did you notice these sweet bird on the top of the ladder?  I found him at the local dollar store and made  a little party hat for him out of a book page and glitter.
And since Bunco Girls can never have enough sweets to munch on while rolling the dice, I made this delicious, addicting snack mix.  It is made with popcorn, Reece's Pieces and dry roasted peanuts covered with melted almond bark. 
We have the most fun when we get together for Bunco and I especially enjoyed hosting at my house.  I do hope that I am blessed to be able to do it again soon.
