How about a Casino Night for a Themed Party?
It is very common for people to have themed parties, be that for a Sweet 16, a Bar Mitzvah, a wedding, a birthday or anniversary, or any other occasions. One of the great things about themed parties is that you can really go all out, incorporating it into each element. You may have considered a Casino Night, for instance, for which you could go to the Bicycle Hotel and Casino. Naturally, choosing a location is just one element. The key is in the details.
First of all, you have to make sure that your guests know that there is a casino them. While inviting them to The Bike may be a giveaway, do make sure that you have some invitations that are themed as well. After all, you’re having a themed party, not just a good time in a casino.
Themed parties have to include costumes as well. There are some great casino costumes to choose from, including visors, aprons, ties, armbands, and more. The casino also always conjures up images of the 1930s, so a flapper dress for a woman and a pinstripe gangster suit for men works really well, too. Naturally, you can take it a step further by dressing up as a deck of cars, for instance. Do make sure, however, that you liaise with your location. If you go to The Bike, for instance, with that being an actual casino, you may be a little bit more tied to a certain dress code.
Casinos tend to serve buffets so finding themed food should not be so difficult. If you don’t want a buffet, then you could consider naming your different dishes after games, gambling, and casinos. For instance, you could have a “Gambler’s Delight” for dessert, or a “Poker Face Chicken” for your mains, or a “Green Money Green Beans” vegetarian dish, for instance.
Whether or not decorations are possible is once again down to the venue that you choose. However, there are usually some options available. For instance, you may have an exclusive room hired for you, which you can generally decorate in any way you like. Casino decorations include large props such as columns, backgrounds, and archways, but also large cards and so on.
Last but not least, you may want to consider handing out party favors. A thank you not printed on a card is a very obvious solution, and giving people a deck, perhaps in a fancy holder, will also work. Poker chips also make great party favors, particularly if they are chips that can be used for real, for instance at the Bicycle Hotel and Casino.
Today, organizing themed parties is easier than ever. There are so many different locations to choose from, and various companies that specialize in getting all the different props and accessories to you, that the sky truly is the limit when it comes to themes. Make sure you focus on the details and enjoy a fantastic party.
