Tips for Holding a Fun Casino Party at Home
Even if you can't manage a trip to Vegas or Atlantic City you can still enjoy the excitement of a casino night in the comfort of your own home. You don't need to worry about having to have a license or permit; as long as your party is just for fun, you're free to do as you wish.
It's a great way to celebrate a birthday or anniversary, or just to get together with friends and family and let off steam. You can keep it simple with some card games and help yourself snacks, or you can transform your home to give it a genuine casino vibe.
Having a few decks of cards and some plastic chips is a simple way to open up plenty of different game ideas, or at the other end of the scale, you can hire slot machines for parties at home. One of the best ways to get a genuine casino vibe is to make use of the facilities available at online casino sites such as Unibet. You get access to an array of different, fun games including poker, blackjack, and roulette, as well as a range of themed games. It's a good idea to be prepared for any guests who aren't familiar with how to play casino games by printing out the rules and tips for how to play.
There are some clever ways you can get the casino vibe without spending a fortune, for example, if you put green tablecloths over some tables it mimics the appearance of the green baize used in real casinos. If you don't have a green tablecloth and don't want to spend too much, just use a disposable paper tablecloth - the dark green Christmas ones are particularly good for this purpose. Casino themed parties are extremely popular, so you'll find plenty of party decorations available if you want to go the extra mile, or if you're feeling crafty, search online for ideas on how to make your own decorations, as suggested here at Our Everyday Life.
Food and drink
If you want to embrace the casino theme fully, it's fun to offer food with a red and black color theme, so you could use ingredients such as:
You can use red and black food coloring to make red cakes or black cookies, but don't forget this is Casino Night, not Halloween; you want the food to look appetizing, not scary! You could also put out some bowls of red and black candy. If you want casino themed drinks, then cocktails are the way to go. You can find recipes on Smitten Kitten, but a few beers and a bottle of wine will do very well, or stick to soft drinks, but have some fancy glasses, fruit slices and ice on hand to make them look the part.
A casino party is a great way to have fun with the people you love, and you can hold an effective themed casino night on a really reasonable budget, or you can go to town for a special occasion. Either way, you're sure to have a brilliant evening.
