Some Bunco party ideas are to use themes related to the month, season or a holiday,notes the Easy Party Ideas and Games website. If the Bunco party is near May 5, a Cinco de Mayo theme can be a suitable idea. Similarly, a Bunco party in late October can have a harvest, Oktoberfest or Halloween-related theme.
When picking a season, holiday or month-related theme, choose invitations, decorations, table settings and food that fit the specific theme, states the Party411 website. The prizes given to guests can be theme-related as well. For example, a Mardi Gras-themed bunco party can include beads and masks for guests, decorative signs hanging on walls similar to those in the French Quarter section of New Orleans and garlands, fake gold coins and confetti placed on the tables. The foods served should be typical New Orleans cuisine, such as gumbo, jambalaya and king cake.
Other ideas, which may be appropriate for any time of year, include Roaring '20s, Fabulous '70s, Western, pirates and tropical island-themed Bunco parties.
