My big effort for the month was that I made felt table covers for us to play on because of various table surfaces - "squishy, rough, sticky, hard, dirty", etc. - and I thought they would be super nice. I loved the felt covers (as does Jason when we play Farkle/Hot Dice), and thought that they made the surfaces all uniform and fixed all the abovementioned problems. However, from all I heard, I think I may have been one of the only ones who enjoyed them for Bunco. Glad that we like them at home!

Bunco Hosting #3
I hosted Bunco on the 19th of this month. I used beautiful tablecloths handed down from my Mom which were given to her by her Mom. Then I used cranberry plastic plates and cups (ease was necessary) with my silver chargers - I wish I had gold chargers to go with the tablecloths, but silver still looked good. I think they turned out nicely.
For dinner I served the two kinds of quiche that I tried out on Christmas morning along with croissants, a light salad, homemade chocolate chip cookies, and 2-liters of soda. I think all women like quiche, but very few men do. So, I thought it was a good choice for a ladies party. And, in case someone didn't like quiche, I had salad and croissants...thank you Mama for raising me right and teaching me to always have options and plenty of food! My favorite part of the month were the prizes. I did paper products. I mean, how hilarious is it to go home toting a HUGE (size wise) prize?! And, who doesn't have a need for paper products in their storage - especially after the expensive December budget?! It was also nice to be able to customize easily and get prizes at the EXACT price for each winner.
