Planning an epic casino themed party for your mates? If you fancy throwing a casino themed party but do not know where to start, then we can help you with a detailed DIY list to ensure that your party is a jackpot (pun intended)! Casino themed parties have become significantly popular in recent times. So, let’s take a look at how to go about making your party memorable.
Firstly, it is essential to decide on a budget as this can help you determine the various inclusions for your event. After you have estimated the budget, the next step will include drafting an initial guest list. This list does not have to be final, but the idea is to understand the approximate number of potential guests for the party. Various factors such as the venue and food can only be decided after estimating the number of people that maybe attending. The next broad step is to identify the venue. Will the party happen at your place or will you need to hire a venue to host the event? If you choose to host the party at an outside location, it is essential to check on the availability of dates as favourite venues fill up fast, especially during this season.
While picking out games for your party, it is vital to select games that you think that your guests will enjoy the most. While new casinos pop-up all the time, the old games are still popular and blackjack, roulette, and poker will always be party favorites. Whatever games you choose for your mates, remember to keep it simple as most people are not interested in understanding complicated playing techniques while trying to have a good time.
Typically, blackjack, roulette and poker are easy to set up and do not need expensive equipment. This fact makes these games ideal inclusions to your casino party night. You could also make easy explanation handout sheets for new players to understand games such as poker. In fact, if you can afford to hire a dealer for the night, it would be an ideal proposition freeing you from the stress of conducting games for your guests.
Also, you need to decide whether you want to create a casual “jeans and t-shirt” environment, or a “suits and ties” event. If you plan on a formal dress code, you can request your guests to wear suits or evening dresses with lots of bling to glam-up the evening even more. You can decide on the dress code and include it in the invitation for your mates to dress up accordingly.
Further, you will need to decide on fun, creative invitations for your guests. While sending online invitations is convenient, you could make things interesting by, say, using old playing cards to create fancy invitation cards for your friends.
Now that you have taken care of most of the details of planning your fabulous party, it is time to start decorating. Creating a mini-casino at your home or a chosen venue does not need to burn a hole in your pocket. Even something as simple as throwing a few green tablecloths over your tables can instantly create a casino-like atmosphere. Further, you can make your casino decorations through simple DIY crafts. You can also decide if giving away casino-themed party favours to your guests as appreciation for attending the party is something that you would consider.
The last and most important thing is to relax and enjoy this spectacular night that you have organised brilliantly. With the casino themed party tips enlisted above, you are guaranteed to have a fantastic night at a party that your mates will talk about for a long time to come.
