B-I-N-G-O Party

About this time the last two summers, we hosted a BINGO party. It was great fun to gather with friends and neighbors in the backyard patio area for an evening of fun and games and LOTS of laughter.

Each family brought a few "treasures" of little or no value for the prizes--white elephant/gag gift types were my favorite (wrapped, of course).  A trip to Dollar General supplied everything we needed in the prize department.

We sat up tables, since it is hard to hold BINGO cards on your lap without sliding the button markers off the card.

The winners were very excited!

The party ended with root beer floats, which are always a hit!

We are trying to come up with a date for the 3rd Annual BINGO party. It's so important to take time to play with your friends in the summer--even when you're a grown up!  Before you blink and your summer is over, invite some friends over for a backyard party!
