If you are a party animal, you would be flooded with several party ideas. What about having a casino night, getting all dressed up and playing the most engaging table games? With plenty of creative ideas available online, casino-themed decorations are also easily available on the markets, along with the iconic movies to draw inspiration from. Here are the 3 Tips to Host a Casino-Themed Party.
3 Tips to Host a Casino-Themed Party
1. Set the Theme of your Party
You can assign the guests some particular roles and ask them to get dressed as per that role. It could be Santa, gangsters, James Bond characters, or a bachelor/bachelorette group of friends — options are many! Now create a theme yourself, which could be designing a casino that has your name, or you can also set your personal date as a lucky number, and give away some small rewards from you as an owner of a unique home-based gambling venue!
Themed invitations are super easy to make, and you can design your own or else you can choose an online template. One creative option is to have the invitation be on a large playing card, making sure to mix up the colours, suits, and numbers. If you’re having a Vegas-themed party, you could have an invitation designed to mimic the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign. However, other great invitation designs might incorporate roulette wheels, chips, or dice.
2. Food and Decoration
Once you have decided on the style and atmosphere you want to have, now it’s time to think about classical casino items and decorations. Arrange a big table, or a couple of them, for playing games; chips, card decks, the dice, or the roulette wheel — depending upon the games you choose to include in your party!
Another thing you need to decide is if you want to opt for a real-money play. Better to try some new. Moreover, it’s illegal to run a casino, even if for one night only, without a license. It’s better to decide on fake money to use in the games.
You can also send out invitations. This will add professionalism to your thorough preparation, and stylized cards will encourage them, even more, to come to your party!
Now coming to food. Without food, no party is complete. Arrange beverages and appetizers to complement the theme of the party. Take care of your guests’ diet preferences, so that no one should feel left out. Remember, unusual cocktails are usually a big hit at parties, so make them casino-themed!
Casinos are almost always synonymous with buffet meals. Buffets don’t just give you access to an assortment of food options but they also do away with the hassle of having to adhere to strict dining timings, allowing people to play uninterrupted. Serve food that causes a minimal mess, like sliders, pizzas, hot dogs or chicken skewers.
3. How to Play
Every table game requires a dealer. You can hire some or arrange it with your friends. It could be a one-night role with a special reward for the best dealer! To retain the interest, prepare little gifts the fake money won in games can be exchanged for.
At this party, you can enjoy some music, switch from playing cards to drinking games, or get involved in other engaging activities. Based on a casino theme will surely add more value and it will turn out to be a classic memorable experience and offer you some really exciting new ways to have fun!
