45 Exciting Casino Theme Party Ideas
Are you reaching the point in your life when you’ll be able to legally accomplish all you’ve always wanted to do? Your 21st birthday marks the beginning of maturity and genuine independence. Celebrate your newfound independence by throwing a casino-themed party. For months to come, it will be the talk of the town!
Casino Theme Party Decorations
Casino-themed parties need casino-themed décor. To try to make your party space into a casino, here are a few décor ideas that involve gambling and Vegas concepts.
1. Fake Money
Poker is all about having fun while winning money. Buy fake money* (or use Monopoly money) and place it on various tables at your party to play with this concept!
2. Add Another Theme
You are not required to decorate in a classic casino motif. Try decorating with an Egyptian theme like the Luxor or an Italian theme like the Venetian to make your Las Vegas casino stand out. You may either go with a tropical or 50s theme*, both of which are based on the famous Vegas film Viva Las Vegas. If you’re a fan of Daniel Craig’s first Bond film, Casino Royale, you could even go the extra mile and do a spy, James Bond theme.
3. Colors Scheme
Keep the color palette in mind while arranging your casino theme party. Red, black, and white are the traditional poker colors. When decorating for your party and purchasing items such as balloons, streamers, and ribbons, keep these colors in mind. Hang red and black streamers for a quick splash of color!
Casinos are often dimly lit, with gaming machines providing the majority of the illumination. To create the illusion of a casino, make sure your party room is dimly lit and hang some Christmas lights from the ceiling. To add to the casino motif, you may hang lights in the shape of dice.
5. Playing Cards
Check your local party supply store for giant cards or other card game items to hang about the room. If not, oversized copies of cards like hearts and spades can be made. You can even use streamers to have the cards dangle from the ceiling!
6. Poker Chips
Poker chips are an obvious décor for a casino-themed party. Gather huge quantities of poker chips to scatter throughout your party’s tables and surfaces. For an added unique touch, scatter poker-themed confetti or black and red confetti over the surfaces.
7. Gambling Game Signs
Hang signs throughout the room that indicate “blackjack,” “roulette,” “poker,” and so on. These may be made from construction paper or posterboard* or purchased online.
8. Green Felt Table Décor
If you don’t have any poker tables, you may buy a green felt tablecloth* to drape over the tables at your party to simulate a poker table. As people eat and play games throughout the night, they are also excellent protective coverings for your furniture surfaces.
9. Photo Opportunities
Decorate your entryway with a photo booth or a casino-themed archway. Your guests will appreciate having images of their time at your casino. Photo booths are popular at many sorts of events, so keep this in mind the next time you’re arranging an event.
Favors are a terrific way to make guests thrilled since what better way to greet them than with free stuff? If the party is themed around a birthday, you can distribute favors as well as gifts for the birthday person so that everyone receives something unique.
10. Lottery Tickets
As a casino theme party reward, give your guests lottery tickets to keep them in the gambling spirit. This is a fantastic way to keep your casino motif going. They’re frequently available at your neighborhood gas station!
11. Dice Set
Give each of your guests a dice set* to take home and use at their leisure to play their favorite casino games. To make the rewards even more special, you can request a customized dice set holder.
12. Lucky Rabbit’s Foot
Without a lucky charm, what is gambling? As your visitors enter in the door, you may offer them their own fortunate rabbit’s foot* and bring them luck! Encourage them to bring it on their next casino trip, and thank you if they win big.
13. Casino Theme Party Favor Bags
Why not design your own themed party favor bags? They are visually appealing, and visitors may reuse them for little gifts in the future.
14. Chocolate Playing Cards
These are a delicious treat with a casino motif. Give each of your guests a pack of chocolate cards in a festive favor bag. If you’re feeling very inventive, you could even frost cookies with melted chocolate. Hearts, spades, diamonds, or clovers might be outlined on the cookies!
15. Fuzzy Dice
A common casino-themed item is fuzzy dice. They’ll look great hanging from your visitors’ car’s rearview mirror or on a keychain.
16. Themed Deck of Cards
Another fantastic favour is playing cards. You may either buy multiple novelty decks to present to your guests, such as playing cards* with Las Vegas graphics on them, or you can provide a customised deck with your own inscription on the back.
Make sure your meal complements the overall party concept. Here are some cuisine ideas for a casino-themed party that properly blend all of the emotions.
Purchase lollipops in the shape of dice from a casino. As a party treat, wrap several together and give each guest a casino-themed lollipop bouquet, or lay them around the table in place of flowers.
Serve traditional Las Vegas cocktails like dirty martinis and lemon drops. Create your own custom birthday drink that is exclusively available at your casino. Add a lemon or lime to the glass’s tip for more enjoyment, and maybe even dip the glass in sugar for an added treat.
Provide snacks for your guests to eat while they gamble. Serve a variety of one-handed poker meals, such as popcorn*, chips, almonds, and candies. You might also use professional mints, like those seen at fine restaurants. Place them in huge bowls throughout the room so that your visitors can always grab a few.
Spicy finger appetizers are ideal for these kind of gatherings. Chips with salsa, bruschetta, and wings are all wonderful spicy dishes. Make sure you have enough of miniature casino-themed plates and napkins for your visitors, which you can get in the supplies area.
21. Formal Options
If your casino theme is more sophisticated, provide hors d’oeuvres such as crab and artichoke dip or meatballs. You may serve them in a chafing dish or on silver platters* to your visitors, and they’ll make everyone feel like they’ve won enough money to go to the casino.
A dice-shaped cake is the ideal dessert for a casino theme. You may create one yourself or buy one already prepared using a cubed cake pan. To make your own, just ice the cake white and decorate with black candy circles or Oreos. You might even get inventive and make a dessert in the shape of a deck of cards. For example, to make a club, cut a rectangle cake into a diamond shape or ice three little round cakes together. If you don’t want to make your own cake, a themed cake topper can suffice. Alternatively, if you like to eat healthy, try one of our nutritious sweets!
Cut sugar cookies into poker chip or card suit shapes for a casino theme party, then frost them and serve them on a huge plate.
Here’s a list of activities and ideas for turning your party space into a real casino. Make sure you have plenty of card decks so that all of your visitors may participate in many games at the same time.
Darts* is a competitive and entertaining game to play at your casino theme party! Most individuals enjoy playing this easy game to pass the time. It’s also a really sociable game, so your visitors will be able to play while mingling and enjoying themselves.
25. Drinking Games
First and foremost, no 21st birthday casino theme party is complete without excessive drinking, and your casino theme party should be no exception. When your visitors are inebriated, the casino games become even more entertaining, and they will let free just by immersing themselves in the theme! To keep with the casino motif, you may play classic games like beer pong and Never Have I Ever, as well as card-based drinking games like King’s Cup.
26. Games of Chance
You don’t have to limit your party to only casino games. Bring your guests up to speed with traditional games like checkers, crazy eights, BINGO, UNO*, or even UNO assault, which I can attest to being rather addictive. There are also several themed bingo cards available.
27. Dice Games
Dice games* may be a lot of fun in a casino atmosphere. Some games use merely the dice, while others necessitate the use of special tables. This is an excellent opportunity for everyone to use their “good luck” dice.
28. Texas Hold ’em
Because it is usually played against the casino rather than other players, this game is ideal for a casino party. It’s a poker variant in which each player is dealt two cards, with five cards face-up in the center of the table.
A roulette wheel* is a simple way to add authenticity to your casino celebration. It’s also a terrific game for those who are new to gaming and have no idea how to play famous casino games. You can even play drinking games with the wheel.
30. 5-Card Stud
Each player is dealt two cards, one face up and one face down, in this form of poker. Because poker is such a popular casino game, any version would be suitable for your casino gathering. There are many different versions to pick from besides the two listed here.
31. Video Games
Why not include virtual video games as one of the activities at a more laid-back party? This option is often a hit at gatherings, and you can even provide guests with headsets*. You can also play interactive video games with the Wii and XBOX Kinect!
The Baccarat suggestion is made mainly because this is the game James Bond plays in Casino Royale. This is when the visitors are transformed into gaming heroes or villains, and their real colors must be shown. It may be difficult to pull off, but if James Bond can do it to save the world, you can probably do it as well.
An auction is a great method for your guests to spend the money they earned during the evening (real or fake). You can even get a gavel* to make yourself feel more important and powerful. Make it a white elephant auction with a variety of amusing and unusual objects to bid on.
34. Casino Field Trip
Travel to a real casino with your guests! They will have access to various poker tables as well as a variety of gaming alternatives. The possibilities are endless: from slots to blackjack, the entertainment never stops!
Karaoke nights may be found at almost every casino. While your visitors are playing casino games, this is also a great method to keep them occupied. Allow your guests to sing their hearts out by renting a karaoke machine*. You may also host a competition and give out awards for the greatest, cheesiest, and most funny acts. Karaoke is ideal for a variety of occasions, not simply your casino night.
Make bets on drinking alcohol instead of winning or losing money to up the stakes in all of these games! The celebration will undoubtedly be a memorable evening.
36. Casino Theme Party Napkins
These casino-themed napkins are so much fun that they nearly don’t require any other decorations. They suit the theme and are so outrageous that after a few drinks, the entire party will be applauding these napkins for their brilliance.
37. Casino Theme Party Plates
When picking your casino-themed décor, remember the colours, as previously said. The same applies for your dinnerware; make sure your dishes and cutlery are red, black, or white, and that they match your theme.
38. Casino Coasters
These coasters will brighten up any drink-related surface while also protecting it. The range of hues provides a little of zing while staying on theme!
39. Classic Poker Table Cover
Why not offer food on poker tables if you’re hosting an event? At the very least, false ones. They match your party’s theme well, and your guests will think they’re in a genuine casino.
40. Casino Theme Party Cups
Getting some disposable cups* will make clean-up a breeze, and visitors may write their names on the cups with a sharpie to avoid any mistake. Themed cups contribute to the event’s décor and enjoyment.
41. Las Vegas Postcards
Las Vegas is one of the most popular gaming destinations in the United States. Purchase many postcards* depicting the vibrant Las Vegas skyline or individual Las Vegas hotels, and put your party information on the back.
42. Casino Theme Party Items
Send your guests personalised casino things like playing cards, martini glasses, dice, or gambling chips for a one-of-a-kind invitation!
43. James Bond Casino Royale Invitation
Why not celebrate Casino Royale, the legendary James Bond film, and send your guests on a spy adventure? These invites would be a great way to get folks to dress up or bring their best spy gear. It’d be amusing to see who could give the most stoic “the name’s Bond. James Bond” during the party. You might go all out with this invitation and provide them hidden identities or names/backgrounds that they must stick to throughout the event.
44. Classic Casino Night Invitation
There’s nothing wrong with sending a straightforward invitation that establishes the topic right away. This one is unique and tailored for your special occasion.
45. Online Invitation
You may need to consider sending an online invitation to visitors in this day and age. Unless they receive a special party invitation, everyone despises checking their inbox. Send a creative online invitation to your visitors as a surprise!
