Walk on the wild side with a casino party
October 01, 2010
Las Vegas is like a giant playground for adults, and it is the premiere destination for those who enjoy gambling. Instead of trying to gather your friends and family and fly them out to Sin City, why not bring the fun to your own home with an amazing casino themed party?
You can get really creative with this theme since there are so many different casino games, and Las Vegas is known for being over-the-top and decadent. Start by sending out personalized party invitations, but instead of just having them be boring old paper with some fun colors on them, try making them represent any number of playing cards found in a traditional deck. This is an excellent play on the traditional party invitation and will surely get your friends pumped for a hand of blackjack or poker.
Now, since you're hosting a casino themed party you need to have all the right accessories to go along with it. This means plenty of decks of cards and playing chips. Whether you're playing for fun or money, the more items you have the more authentic it'll feel. Set up playing stations for each casino game, and hang personalized banners for each of them noting where each partygoer can go to experience some gambling fun. There are blackjack, roulette and craps table cloths that you can place over you existing tables to create the perfect gaming experience.
Erect a giant Las Vegas sign on your front lawn letting the entire neighborhood know they can stop over and enjoy an evening of gambling and fun. Hang plenty of lights and make sure to have some food and drinks on hand for those who will be spending most of their time rolling the dice. Place casino scene setters along your walls and let the good times roll.
To make your casino party even better have some great party favors on hand like gold favor boxes you can fill with treats like chocolate and candies. You can also have fun fuzzy dice for people to hang in their cars or at their homes. You may even pass out fun money bags your guests can fill with their winnings before they go to cash in for the evening.
