How to make a Casino-themed New Year’s Eve Party
New Year’s plans can be challenging. From finding somewhere that isn’t totally rammed and sold out – to venturing out in the cold when you’re cosy at home. If you’re a Casino lover, why not host your own casino themed party to see in the new year?
These hints and tips will allow you to create the perfect atmosphere with your friends and family and see in the New Year with a night to remember.
When people think of Casinos they think of glamour and glitz. When creating invitations or simply messaging your friends about your party – add a dress code! Dust off that suit and grab that sparkly dress you save for special occasions. DRESS. TO. IMPRESS!
Food is the way to a lot of people’s hearts and Casinos all over the world are known for some of the most delicious dishes. You could go all out with some American-inspired spareribs or cook up some extra special sea food. If you don’t want to create full meals, bread platters and dips, mini pizzas, wings and mozzarella dippers are always a good call.
Why not go the whole hog with dessert? A quick peruse on Pinterest and you’ll be flooded with ideas for Casino-themed sweets. From playing card cupcake toppers to shortbread dominoes and gooey-filled cookies for poker chips. We’re IN.
A Casino-themed party wouldn’t be complete without games to keep your guests entertained. You can set up a range of table games including Blackjack, Roulette, Craps and Baccarat. A great tip is printing out a ‘cheat sheet’ for guests who might not have played some of the games before.
You can’t have a Casino-themed party without have a game or two of Poker. The ideal here is to not make things too complicated. Remember, some people might not be used to playing but want to get involved! Help each other out and soon you’ll be playing late into the night.
What’s one thing that instantly screams Casino? Slot machines. There are multiple different tabletop slot machines you can rent that will add a splash of Vegas to your party. If you want to get even more people involved, why not make a human fruit machine? This is a hilarious and sure-fire way to get everyone involved.
Use an online bingo generator or pick up a bingo set from your local store to add more light-hearted fun to your party. You can even personalise the number cards with your guests name or your party theme. Another idea is to encourage your guests to bring a prize with them that you can use for certain games.
