Don't want to hire a venue or event hall and instead host your party in your own home? Casino parties are a great way to “mix things up” from the usual party. Turning your home into a casino for a night can be a lot easier than you might think — and a lot more fun than you might expect! Follow the tips below to make sure your casino house party is a hit.
For a private casino party at your home (or at your office or catering hall), you should have enough tables for roughly half of your guests to be playing at any one time. We can cater for up to 20 on 2 tables. This is because at most casino house parties, your guests will also be eating, socializing, dancing, etc. Of course, you know your guests better than anyone — and your party may or may not have entertainment besides the casino fun — so you can adjust this “50%” rule to meet your needs. Two tables are usually, more than enough for a house party.....but that also depends on how many guests you’re inviting!!
Giving your casino house party an awesome Las Vegas feel, starts with your party invitations. There are plenty of Vegas-themed invitations available online or at your local party store. Whether you’re hiring a DJ, a band, or just relying on your stereo, upbeat music sets the ideal tone for a real casino feel — mix in some Vegas-inspired tracks like “Viva Las Vegas” by Elvis and “Luck Be a Lady” by Sinatra (in fact, anything by the “Rat Pack” that Sinatra used to roll with would be a great choice!) Remember to keep the music to background levels, so the dealers and your guests can hear each other. Lastly, you can find a ton of Vegas-inspired decorations and accessories for your casino house party, both online and at your local party store.
Make sure you have enough space to comfortably fit all of the casino tables, with room for your guests to move about easily! Keep in mind that all of the tables do not necessarily need to be in the same room. We often provide casino house parties in which the hosts ask us to set up a table in the living room, another in the dining room even the garage! As a loose guide, consider the size of the table games like Blackjack (7’x3’), Poker (7’x3’) and Roulette (8’x4’) so you don’t need a huge amount of space to get your casino entertainment. We have even had 2 tables in a windmill with over 20 guests playing. A casino house party provides a great atmosphere at a birthday/anniversary/family celebration.
