Dos and Don'ts of Planning a Casino Party

May 05, 2016

A great way to gamble without losing big to a casino is by having a casino-themed party. Hosting a casino-themed party gives you control over where the money goes and if it is for a good cause, or personal consumption. Hosting a casino-themed party for a fundraiser is a great, fun idea. It is easy to involve the community and coworkers because they can have a good time while helping out with a worthy cause.

As with any party, a casino-themed party will take time to plan. About two months before the party, you will want to reserve dealer and gaming tables if you plan on renting them. It's also a good time to decide on a budget. It's important to decide how much you can spend, and then stick to it. Don't forget to create a guest list. Knowing how many people you plan on inviting will also help you determine your budget. Of course, it's time to pick a date as well. Casino-themed parties work great on weekend evenings, especially after everyone has gotten paid.

Plan Ahead

Around a month or so before the casino party start deciding on which games you want to play. Make sure to pick out popular games that most of your guests are familiar with. Hire the dealers or a casino themed party group like Casino Night Events to run the games.

Two weeks before the casino-themed party make sure to send out your invitations. Figure out how you are going to fit the gaming tables into your party rooms, and gather decorations. Glow sticks make inexpensive, fun, party decorations. It's also a good time to figure out your menu. If you want to keep guests' thirst and appetites in check, but keep their hands free to play, think about serving finger foods. Beer, water, and punch make great, easy drinks for a casino-themed party. If your budget allows, now would also be the time to pick out and put together some casino-themed favors for your guests to bring home with them.

In case you are wondering, yes, casino-themed parties are legal, as long as guests are playing for fun, not money.
