5 Expert Tips for Throwing the Best Casino Party
Truly versatile, casino parties are a unique alternative to stuffy, overdone party themes. Even the younger crowd loves casinos! If you want to throw the best casino party of the year, consider these tips and tricks.
Start by choosing a venue. Consider how many guests you plan to invite and how many tables you’ll need so everyone can sit and play comfortably, and then base your party location around it. There should be enough room for people to have elbow space at the tables and to walk comfortably between them when changing games. Consider where you’ll set up the food and drink stations, too.
Once you’ve decided on the location, date and time of your event, send out the invitations. If you’d prefer to spend most of your money on the event itself, you can choose a basic invitation, but if you’d like guests to get the full effect, consider a casino-themed invite. Be sure to list the required dress on the invitation. Some casino parties are strictly casual, but you might decide you’d like everyone to dress up.
Choose a variety of games for your event. Not everybody knows how to play Texas Hold ‘Em, and not everybody likes to play Blackjack. Your guests will enjoy the event more if you offer a variety of games. Other popular games include Roulette or Craps. Since you don’t want your guests to go broke, be sure you have fake money on hand for them to “gamble” with. You might even choose to hand out prizes to the people with the highest winnings at the end of the night.
The decorations and music are important, too. Have your dealers wear hats and nametags, create a sign with the name of your “casino” and drape sheer fabrics over the lights for the perfect casino ambiance. You have several options for the music, which you should base on the crowd. Consider Frank Sinatra or other musicians popular at the height of Las Vegas’ early days, choose background noise such as slot machines or, if the party is for a younger crowd, stick to today’s hits.
Don’t forget about the food and drink! Finger foods and small appetizers are easy to eat between changing tables, so they won’t take away from the gaming experience. Martinis, daiquiris and other “classy” drinks are popular choices for casino parties. Be sure to keep non-alcoholic options on hand as well.
