How To Throw The Best Casino Night Party
Casino night parties are always a fun time, and they’re the perfect theme for any occasion, from a birthday party to a neighborhood soirée. But whether you decide to glam it up or keep it lowkey, there are a few basic elements that go into any kind of casino night.
Here are a few casino party ideas to help you plan the best night ever.
Perhaps the most important element of a casino night party are the casino games themselves. If you’re working on a small budget or in a small venue, you can simply set out a few poker tables and have your guests hold their own Texas Hold ‘Em and Blackjack tournaments. For next-level casino action, you can rent high-quality gaming tables from event planners who can bring in roulette wheels, craps tables, and even professional dealers.
People may not feel comfortable gambling with real money during your casino night party; after all, it isn’t a real casino. For a touch of fun, you may want to print up fake money for your guests to use. Whatever you do, make sure you have an adequate supply of casino chips so people can place their bets. To increase the stakes, you may wish to offer up a grand prize to the big winner at the end of the night, something nominal like a bottle of wine or a gift basket.
You could also turn your party into a fundraiser, accepting donations to a charity of your choice at the door in exchange for a pile of chips. Your guests will have a good time all night knowing their money is going to a worthwhile cause.
No party is complete without a plethora of refreshments. Casino night parties are active, with people moving around from table to table, so keep the food and beverage offerings mobile as well. One option is to set up a buffet with finger foods and beverages that guests can visit between rounds of poker. If you’re looking to create a more upscale atmosphere, hire a bartender to mix signature cocktails and have servers pass trays of hors d’oeuvres around the room.
As for the menu, you can keep it simple with chips and crudité platters, or get creative with fun and festive casino-themed food. Try sliders pierced with playing card picks, cookies decorated like poker chips, or red Jell-O shots molded into the shape of dice.
Set the mood by decorating your venue with casino-themed trimmings. Many party supply stores offer a wide variety of paper goods, disposable tableware, banners, centerpieces, and backdrops printed with patterns of poker chips, roulette wheels, or dice. If you’re feeling crafty, Pinterest has endless ideas for DIY decorations: make a table runner out of playing cards, put up a photo booth with printable props, or create signs with clever sayings like, “All In” and “High Roller.” And don’t forget to fill the space with balloons in the shape of lucky number 7.
