The glitz, the glam – nothing quite embodies a good time like a casino does! And there’s a reason why Las Vegas is known as the Entertainment Capital of the World and is famous for its mega casino-hotels. If you’re looking for inspiration to take your next social gathering up a notch, look no further than a casino theme.
Besides being instantly glamorous, you can have lots of fun putting together a casino-themed party – from your color scheme and dress code to your choices of activities and refreshments! Here are some tips for hosting a casino-themed party:
Dress to impress!
Okay, we know, dress codes can be really stifling, and unless you’re throwing your casino-themed party in an actual casino, these house party outfit tips on Outfit Trends ring true:
- Don’t be too dressy
- Be smart with footwear
- Keep your look low-maintenance
- Keep your outfit casual but chic
The trick is to find a middle ground – be dressy but not too dressy. If you want to evoke a real casino feel, encourage everyone to dress in dress-downed versions of what they’d wear to a casino. You wouldn’t wear a cocktail dress and stilettos to a house party, but you could probably dress in a nice sequin top with some skinny jeans and pumps.
Explore that theme, and run with it!
There’s more to casinos than just poker tables and slot machines, so there’s no need to limit yourself when it comes to the theme! Take, for instance, the casino games featured on Foxy Games, which you can also feature elements from Slingo (a cool combination of bingo and slots), Megaways, scratch cards, and table games like roulette and blackjack. In addition, you can employ a FREINDS theme, which is front and center on the Foxy Games website, while at your very own casino party for an added twist.
You can also explore the other games for more inspiration with regards to your décor and entertainment options. There’s no need to go out and rent a baccarat or roulette table, but you could probably play some fun party games with digital slots or host some rounds of blackjack.
Of course, look beyond the game rooms, too. Ask yourself: what does a casino look like, and how can I incorporate these into my décor? If you’re the arts-and-crafts type, you could make hanging decorations of the suits of cards from paper (or buy them online, if you’re less handy). Switch out your curtains for dark or blackout curtains, and set up the mood lighting!
Feast like high rollers!
The best casinos in Las Vegas are also excellent food destinations, and this is something you can use to your advantage. If you’re not sure what to serve at your party, just look through the menus of some of the best restaurants in casino resorts across the globe. The dishes listed on a Forbes Travel Guide write-up on Restaurant Guy Savoy in Caesars Palace all sound mouth-watering. They include things like artichoke and black truffle soup, fish roe parfait, salmon sashimi cooked on dry ice, and chocolate mousse. But there’s no reason to splurge – it’s just as easy to find budget-friendly recipes.
You might even go a step further and write menu cards – just like a fine-dining restaurant – where you depict what dish inspired your own creation! Your guests are sure to love the effort, and it’s a simple thing that can elevate a home party.
Keeping these things in mind, your casino party is sure to be a hit. But most importantly, remember to have fun – isn’t that what a night out in a casino is all about?
