How to Organise a Casino-themed Birthday




When picking a theme for your party, you want something that will spark excitement and hopefully foster some friendly competition. Some themes are completely overdone while some have stood the test of time and guarantee a good time – a night at the casino is one such theme.

If you’re looking for unique and fun ways to celebrate a special occasion, a themed party is the right choice. But the key to a successful casino-themed party is all in the detail. To capture the glitz and glamour of a Las Vegas casino night, here is what you need to consider in your planning.

Send Invitations

Your invitations will set the tone of your high-stakes celebration so show your intent for a cohesive theme by sending them to your guests. You can use online editing tools or pre-made invites emblazoned with dice, play cards and roulette wheels to get them in the party mood. It should include details on the dress code, game options, dates and times.

Include a Dress Code

A dress code can really kick your casino-themed party up a notch. Encourage your guests to embrace classic Vegas glamour with cocktail dresses, flapper headdresses and fedoras. If you want something a little more relaxed, a dress-to-impress dress code ensures everyone is looking their best and adds some casino flair to the evening.


Themed Decorations

You can transform your home into a miniature Las Vegas casino with on-theme decorations and accessories. Think playing card streamers, giant inflatable dice, poker chip table centre pieces and green felt tablecloths!

For a touch of elegance, you could stick to a 1920s gambling theme with a colour scheme of gold, silver and black. You can match your outfit with your décor to really make a statement.

Game Stations

This is the main event, so it deserves some extra attention! Set up a variety of classic casino games for your guests to enjoy, from blackjack and craps to iconic roulette. You could even make your own DIY roulette wheel from items you have at home. Go in a more relaxed direction by playing online bingo in person, or a game of giant Jenga.

Food and Drink

It’s up to you how you feed your guests, whether you provide a buffet or a full sit-down meal. Finger foods are ideal for casino-themed parties as they allow guests to mingle with each other and don’t put a lull in the evening. Offer a selection of both sweet and savoury options, including mini quiches, burger sliders and bite-size desserts.

Photo Booth

Some things are guaranteed to make your party memorable – a photo booth is one of those things. Whether you hire out a booth or create a glittery backdrop, your guests can take away tangible memories from your party.
