Hosting a casino party is a fun way to bring people together and celebrate a special occasion or just to have a good time. We’ve put together a few theme ideas as well as some décor ideas for a DIY casino party for those who are creative and like to get crafty!
Las Vegas Themed Party
Vegas is a great inspiration for a casino party. It is all glitz, glam, and gambling! For your invitation, you may consider a pretend plane ticket to Vegas with all the details or a playing card invite for a special touch.
For Vegas-style decorations, consider having blinking lights, signs to a wedding chapel, and don’t forget the sign to the all you can buffet! You can also have big dice, playing cards, and a red and black color scheme for the ultimate Vegas look.
You can also put up a Vegas themed backdrop for photo opportunities for great memories guests can take home. Music also adds a special touch. Make a playlist of the big Vegas entertainers like Wayne Newton, Elvis, or the Rat Pack members like Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra. Don’t forget the food. Try some buffet friendly dishes such as rigatoni, cheesy potatoes, fried chicken, etc. You can even use poker-shaped picks to ad color to your bite-sized appetizers for a pop of color!
Consider hiring an Elvis impersonator or a strolling magician for entertainment. Offer dice, decks of cards, or even scratch-off lottery tickets as party favors.
Monte Carlo Casino Party
The Monte Carlo theme is elegant and lush. For your invitations, consider a fake travel itinerary to Monte Carlo with all the event details. Playing card invitations or fake plane ticket invites are also a great option for this theme. For décor, consider candles, flowers, crystals, and rich fabrics for an elegant atmosphere.
When it comes to music, consider the tunes from the James Bond movies as well as music from the Rat Pack members. Food options are endless; think of luxury and elegance when choosing the menu. You can also serve martinis, a favorite of James Bond.
Have guests dress for a more formal, elegant evening. Men can take inspiration from Bond, and the ladies may consider dressing like a bond girl. You can also hire an entertainer to be James Bond with a fight scene for entertainment. Martini glasses, as well as decks of cards or dice, are great favors for this theme.
DIY Decorations for Your Casino Party
1. Transform regular boxes into dice.
Gather large boxes and turn them into giant dice with paint or colored paper. These larger decorations will give the event scale.
2. DIY Cashier Cage.
Decorate an ordinary table to look like a cashier cage where people can get more chips or get information about the evening’s events.
3. Make roses out of playing cards.
Using a petal template, available online, you can cut up playing cards, transforming them into roses. Create centerpieces using these playing card roses for a fun yet elegant touch.
4. Brownies with white icing to make them look like dominos.
Make some delicious fudgy brownies for dessert, and use white icing to make them look like dominos to add a fun touch to your party!
5. Serve sandwiches that look like playing cards.
Finger sandwiches are a great snack for your themed casino party. Cut shapes out of red peppers such as hearts to decorate the sandwich like a playing card.
6. Stick to a red, black and white color theme.
From tablecloths and plates to streamers and balloons, stick to a red, black, and white color theme.
7. Make sure to have the proper music to keep the party going.
Consider hits such as “Poker Face” by Lady GaGa, “Money (That’s What I Want)” by The Beatles, “Viva Las Vegas” by Elvis Presley, and top hits that match the theme of your casino party. At Entertainment Unlimited, you can hire a professional DJ to play all the greatest casino-style hits and keep your party going all night long!
