Party-goers: get ready to experience a night you’ll never forget! We’re going to show you how to throw the perfect casino theme party at home. This is great for adult parties like birthdays, bachelorette/bachelor parties, and more. Let us present you a couple of ideas to use for your casino-themed party.
Idea for party preparation
Interior decorations for your casino-themed party are really a must-have to create the theme. It’s also about making your guests feel like they’re really at a Vegas casino.
First, play money is your friend here. You can purchase the realistic fake $100 bills on Amazon for $8 or even cheaper ones on Etsy. For budget option and for those who have time, you can print fake money yourself. For decoration, use wine-red or bottle-green table cloth to imitate a casino table. You can make decor with patterns out of card games. If you want to spend more and have wholesome experience, you can rent slot machine for your guests to play. There are mini ones that are cheaper or the full size if you have room for this and a budget.
If you want to add more casino-themed decorations, you can add neon lights somewhere, use dim lights instead of bright ceiling lamp. Dice and playing cards are also great decoration items. You can make them yourself, or you can purchase pillows, vases or other home accessories in a shape of these items or with the pattern of them.
Food and drink
What would a casino be without cocktails and delicious food? Here are some recipes you can use to make your party unforgettable.
For drinks, serve margaritas and Martinis with lime wedges and olives. You can also make mocktails for those who don’t drink alcohol. Of course, you should have fancy glasses for your drinks. If you do not have glass ones at home, you can always buy reusable plastic ones that nicely imitate glass.
For the food, we recommend you to serve caviar, beef steak and tacos. Just be sure that your menu covers all party tastes and preferences. You can always go for party classics like charcuterie board that can look elegant and luxurious while in fact is created with casual products such as salami ham, cheese, fruits and crackers.
You can always make sweets decorated with casino games patterns such as symbols from cards, dice or roulette.
Music and entertainment
To complete the mood, we recommend you to check out for the type of music that is played from speakers in the casino. These are jazz, evergreen classics for piano or violin or rock ballads. Of course, you can add a lively tune from time to time to engage your guests on the dance floor, if you planned to have one.
For entertainment, make sure you have multiple cards sets, chess boards, or other casino games such as roulette machine in mini version or backgammon board. If you are wealthy enough or have good connections, you can hire a real croupier to keep your guests entertained.
Plan of the night
Do not let your guests be bored, and try to engage them in the theme you prepared for them. Make a plan of events for the night such as bingo, lottery, poker tournament or blackjack one. If you are feeling extra, why not to recreate famous casino robberies such as Bellagio heist?
Be sure that you planned some nice rewards for the winners of each event, not necessarily money. You can also have a grand reward for the person who will have the most money in hand at the end of the night. Instead of money as reward, you can have small gifts, or a possibility to ask you a small or bigger favour.
Why to organize the casino-themed party in the first place?
There are many reasons to plan a casino themed party at home. It’s about feeling like you’re somewhere else and getting out of your everyday routine. You can even be anything that you want to be: the owner of the casino or just one regular guest who plays games and has fun, or trying your skill as a croupier for your guests. This is a party theme that everyone will remember for a long time. Be sure to inform people you invite about the theme for them to not only dress properly for the occasion to fulfil the theme, but also to make up their mind and be ready to play some casino games.
So, there you have it: some ideas how to make a casino themed party and what to serve for food and drink. You can never go wrong with this type of theme, especially when you add more decorations such as neon lights or poker patterned plates. This is an excellent idea for adult parties like bachelor/bachelorette parties, divorce parties or simple birthday ones. You can even try to make this theme for your children’s party, only with the drinks and food in non-alcoholic versions. We wish you an unforgettable time!
