All the best parties tend to have a fun theme. If you’re throwing a holiday, retirement, or birthday party, look past the tired themes you’re used to. Costume and pool parties are out, and the hottest new theme in the party scene is a casino party. The best part about having a casino-themed party is that you do not even have to go to a casino to have one. You can have a casino-themed party in any space available to you, as long as you’re willing to get a little creative.
If you’re looking to throw an incredible casino-themed party that your guests will remember for years to come, you’ll need to focus on details like guest attire, activities offered at the party, and making sure the food and drink options are amazing and on-theme. Read on to discover how you can throw the perfect casino-themed party for the night of your life.
Have your guests dress up
One way to make sure you fully execute the casino theme for your party is by having a suggested attire. Consider including “cocktail attire” on the invitations you send out so that guests know to dress their best for the party. Clothes are a big part of creating a mood, and in the case of your casino party, you want the mood to be light and celebratory. It would also behoove your guests if they feel confident and empowered to take part in the gambling activities you will have. Fancier outfits can give people more confidence, whether it’s because they think it nicely accentuates their bodies, or because they remember compliments they have received in that outfit before. If you have your guests dress in an elevated way, or even push it to black tie, you will be inviting guests to have a good time and feel good about themselves.
Liven up your party with casino activities
The centerpiece to your casino-themed party will be casino activities. Since it is rather unlikely that you have a slot machine or roulette table lying around your house, consider doing some do-it-yourself decorations to make your own renditions of popular games. You can make a roulette out of a lazy Susan and marbles. Instead of slot machines, consider having folks who are over 18 sign up for gambling sites and use laptops and tablets to make slot machine gambling stations. Find a few sites you like then find similar gambling sites with the same games using casino sister sites. That way, your guests will all have comparable gaming experiences.
Get your grub and drink on
All great parties have great food and drink situations. Make sure your casino party has fun, lively menu to match the celebratory energy in the room. Consider coupling carnival foods like popcorn and candy apples with fancier hors d’oeuvre for an experimental and playful vibe. All of these foods are easy to transport around to different games, too, so guests won’t need to sit down at tables. Try to find rentals for the foods in your town. For instance, if you are throwing a party in the big city, seeking out a popcorn machine rental in NYC may be a great idea. As for drinks, an open bar would be the best way to go. For the maximum casino-themed experience, alcoholic cocktails and beverages are the easiest way to get there.
With the above tips in mind, you will be sure to throw a casino-themed party that leaves your guests wondering why anyone would ever make the trip to Las Vegas.
