Throwing a Casino spells for good times with family, friends, great food, and casino theme music. Singing, dancing and having a great time with family and friends is what most celebrations are supposed to be like. Therefore, finding the right melodies and tunes for those special events is very important. From rock and country to jazz and blues, getting together with friends and celebrating great times or special events will make your event very popular. Select a playlist that reflects the casino vibe. Play such songs as Dean Martin - Medley Drink to Me Only, Tori Amos - Don't Make Me Come to Vegas, Nico – Vegas, Geggy Tah - Las Vegas With the Lights Out, Sheryl Crow - Leaving Las Vegas, Elvis Presley - Viva Las Vegas, Barenaked Ladies – Conventioneers, Southern Culture on the Skids - 40 Miles to Vegas, The B-52s - Queen of Las Vegas, Soundtrack to Ocean’s 13, INXS – Pretty Vegas, The Sopranos opening song, Peggy Lee (old Vegas lounge) – Black Coffee, Tom Waits - Straight to the Top (Vegas), Size 14 - People Get Really Drunk in Las Vegas, Who Da Funk - Shiny Disco Balls, Sin City Ac/DC, and anything by the Rat Pack (they were the Kings of Vegas at one point). Include a variety of party supplies to make the casino one to remember as well. Include Vegas posters and large novelty decorations such as cards and dice. Casino should include a wide range of card games (easy games for beginner card players as well). Creative idea: Matching or contrasting color decor items such as plates and cups will work for any theme ideas. If you specify the type of clothing for a social event like summer causal, give a few examples of what is acceptable and more importantly what isn't. When all is said and done, favors given to those guests who were able to attend will both feel appreciated and be reminded of the day whenever they look at that favor.
Creative and fun homemade casino party supplies are just about as much fun as actual casino games. Party supplies can be rather pricy so the alternative is to make homemade casino party supplies instead. Send homemade casino themed invitations to guests in the form of diamonds, spades, hearts, and clubs. Cut out these symbols from quality card stock. Send out the invitations in a timely manner to allow for invited guests to make the necessary arrangements.
Once the casino themed homemade invitations are sent, now it is time to focus the actual party. Take large cardboard boxes, paint or cover in white paper, add black dots to make dice. Use large sheets of poster board and cut out diamonds, spades, hearts and clubs and hang them from the ceiling or post them on the wall. Another option is to use the cutouts as placemats. Building a house of cards make for a great casino themed centerpiece as well. Research various types of card houses and let the building begin.
Printing homemade faux money with the hosts face it makes great party supplies as well. Hand out a desired dollar amount to the guests when they walk into the party and let them use that money to gamble with. The person at the end of the party receives a casino themed party favor.
A casino theme party would not be complete without an amazing casino cake, themed accordingly. This exciting event is the ideal time for creative desserts and other party foods designed especially for this celebration. These items are always a great addition to a celebration and most often fun like cakes that are designed especially for this celebration will make everyone feel very special. More often than not, these great party foods and desserts will add a lot of fun to the special event. Whether it is for a birthday or holiday, this cake will steal the show!
1 cup of milk
3/4 cup of vegetable oil
1 teaspoon of vanilla
2-1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
2-1/4 teaspoons of baking powder
2 cups of sugar
Baking Instructions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line two 9 inch round cake pans with parchment paper and grease it. Beat sugar and eggs together in a large mixing bowl and then add flour, oil, milk, vanilla and baking powder until creamy. Pour the batter in the pans and bake for 30-40 minutes.
After you have baked the cake, ice the top of one layer and then put the second layer on. Ice the top and the sides of the complete cake. Next, add details using party supplies your have for your casino themed party. This could be poker chips, dice and more. If you are feeling really ambitious, you can turn the cake into a craps or poker table. Be sure to add detail such as cards, numbers and other authenticating marks to really capture the casino feel. Another idea would be to create a Vegas nightlife scene with the recognizable buildings.
Casino parties can be a fun and entertaining way for guests to spend an evening. Card games and roulette or board games that have various casino-like elements will make a lively entertainment for the gamblers at heart. From making a guest list to preparing the food, having a plan will make the celebration go off without a hitch. Simple hostess tip: Prepare for the entire celebration in advance and avoid adding any extra commitments or stress on the hostess during the preparation period. This simple tip will ensure that the hostess has a stress free and very entertaining time during the actual celebration.
Casino fund raising parties are probably the best known of this variety. Birthdays are sure to be more fun when casino themed games and paper party goods set the stage. Invitations are also fun when themed to match this party. Home made invitations can incorporate stickers, glitter, embossing or cutouts from the supplies in the scrapbook bag. Drawing upon these and clip or original art can provide better invitations than money can buy.
Ready made casino invitations can be purchased and embellished to form those which draw upon the best of both hand made and manufactured processes. That at least solves the question of how to find envelopes that are the right size for handmade cards.
The casino night can go the direction of an ordinary bingo party or can simply be the most elegant of cocktail parties. It all depends on who the guest of honor is or who's on the guest list. For instance, if Grandma is celebrating the 70th birthday party then her friends will probably be happy with a card party atmosphere. Grandma may even know how to play poker. If there is a long list of well to do patrons of the arts who are being invited to a casino party/fund raiser then the evening might even be semi-formal.
The casino paper party goods would be the same since Grandma's friends don't want people to make a lot of fuss and the fund raiser will probably be held in a rented hall that has to be cleaned up before leaving. The table cloths and decorations can further tailor the party to the tone of the occasion.
