Birthday Party Ideas – Casino Night

We are based in Las Vegas, and obviously there are several casinos on and off the strip.  How about bringing the casino to your private birthday party?

Life is a gamble. What better way to commemorate that gamble than by rolling the dice or playing cards all night? An exceptional casino night is most definitely a lot of fun to be had by all. You can choose. Of course you will not be able to use real money (or can you?) for this, but you can give each attendee their own set of chips or monopoly money to play with for the evening.   You can also give out fun prizes for the winners and funny parting giveaways for those who do not fare so well. The important thing is that you are enjoying the great gamble that life really is.  This is the perfect way to do this.

Birthday Party Ideas - Casino NightWhether you choose a grand James Bond Style Casino event complete with tuxedos and a full and flowing bar or go for a more tropical sort of casual casino concept it is very important that the music and drinks flow freely and that everyone has the opportunity to have a great time. Great trimmings for your casino night will differ according to the type of casino you are attempting to incorporate. Needless to say gaming tables, a roulette wheel, and lots of dice are sure to please your guests as great party décor. Otherwise go with the sub theme of your party.

Be sure to let your guests know if there is a dress code for the night when sending out party invites. You may buy your invitations online quite easily or print your own. Again you will want to go with the approach that works best with the theme of the Casino birthday party you are throwing. If it’s an over the hill sort of birthday party you might want to make the invitations funny with some form of reference to the fact that lighting the candles on the cake may be a gamble in and of itself. Remember to let your invitations begin the birthday party theme and work from there to build things up.

On the big day you can raid your local party supply store or an online party supply shop for all sorts of gambling related decorations. From fuzzy dice to oversized cardboard cards and hundreds of things in between you can go as classy as you ‘d like with your casino night birthday party or go for some of the more ‘party’ themed casino settings that you will find as well. You are only limited by your imagination and personal tastes when it comes to properly decorating for your casino birthday party. With that in mind, make the decorations as fun or as elegant as you can stand.

As for the types of food, what sort of self respecting casino wouldn’t have a grand buffet arranged. Display your food buffet style and if feasible have a catering staff circulating with drinks throughout the room. For your casino night birthday party finger foods are the best. Shrimp cocktail, crab puffs, petit fours, cocktail sausages, meatballs, sausage rolls, pigs in blankets, dips with appropriate bread and crackers, finger sandwiches, and any other great finger food you can think of. Another great addition to your buffet table would be a chocolate fountain with plenty of marshmallows, pretzels, and fruits to cover.

You will want to be certain to have proper casino sound effects. Because we are in Las Vegas, it is totally possible to have a wall full of slot machines.  These are easy to rent.  You can have as many as you want.  If you think that is overkill, you could skip the slots and keep this a table games only section with great music overhead. The choice is yours and the sky is the limit.

Be sure to take plenty of pictures in order to create a scrapbook of the grand event. Not only will this help preserve your own memories of the evening but it also makes a great gift for the guests who have shared moments in your life and make the gamble worthwhile.
