The Wanda Witch Party Roundup Post

I can tell it’s getting close by the emails coming in…that wonderful time of year when dozens of you readers anonymously invite all your friends to a big party and take on my favorite pseudonym…Wanda D. Witch. I hosted my first Wanda Witch party 10 years ago and I’m still going strong.  We’ve done variations of it in 4 different states.  It’s been the source for new friendships and awesome memories we retell with friends to this day.  But the benefits don’t end there.  Some of my favorite family...

Bunco – One of My Favorite Family-Friendly, Grab’n’Go Games

This past New Year’s Eve I was hit with a party dilemma.  We were hosting a big family party at our house and I needed a game that could be played by everyone – adults and kids.  There are lots of games on the market that can be ‘played by all ages’ but I wanted something that could actually be enjoyed and possibly won by all ages.  Finally, a few hours before the party, I remembered a fun dice game I had learned back in Ohio called Bunco.  I’m sure some of you have heard of it. They sell boxed Bunco games at...

Last year, when I was planning a big girls weekend with a bunch of friends, I started looking online for fun conversation games.  Some of the attendees were close friends and some were brand new to the group so I wanted to find a game that would help everyone get acquainted.  I spent $50 on two conversation games from Amazon and thought that they would do the trick.  Unfortunately, once the games arrived and I started flipping through the cards, I realized that they weren’t what I had in mind at all.  To begin with, there were...

Now that you’ve decided to take the plunge and host the party of the season, it’s time to get to work.  Here’s your first set of to-dos. Step 1: Pick a Partner in Crime Although you can certainly manage this party on your own, sharing the excitement with a co-conspiritor is a great way to add a little spice to the planning process.  Just be sure to recruit someone that’s as determined to keep the secret as you are.  For example, when my mother-in-law, Ellen, and her friend hosted this party originally (they were the...

Wanda Witch: The Ultimate Halloween Party

I must admit, I’m a bit of a Halloween fanatic.  Even though Halloween is still 8 weeks away and it’s over 90 degrees here, my fingers are already itching to transform my house into its full fall form.  I wasn’t always this way.  I used to see Halloween as a fun little weekend on the way to Christmas but all that changed about 7 years ago when I hosted my first Wanda Witch party.  That’s when I realized all of Halloween’s hidden potential.  I’ve been an addict ever since. I’ve hosted loads of...
