Viva Las Vegas: Casino Themed Events

Las Vegas is more than a city, and even more than an American icon: it’s a fun, fabulous and exciting party and event theme! Planning a casino themed party doesn't have to be a gamble. This is a versatile theme that can be used for a birthday, bachelor party, fundraiser event or corporate function. Because Las Vegas has so many iconic visuals, decorating and planning for this event is a cinch. Start by setting the stage with – of course – the Las Vegas sign

…but don’t forget the cards, dice and poker chips. These visual elements can also be incorporated into your event invitations and signage.

Poker chip tables are a creative way to incorporate card games, even if you don’t plan on playing them during your event.

A larger-than-life slot machine adds to the décor, but also serves as a fun backdrop for photos.

If you’re considering furniture rentals for your event, stick with neutrals. Black or white couches are simple yet sophisticated, and help bring all of your décor elements together without competing for attention.

Color Scheme Recommendations: Go with the traditional card deck color scheme: black, white and red. Or work with the bold primary colors of Vegas: green, yellow, red and blue.

Food and Drinks: Your guests will likely have playing cards or drinks in hand, so focus on an hors d'oeuvre menu. A buffet selection of shrimp cocktails, individual Caprese salads, bruschetta, and lobster cheese puffs is satisfying yet uncomplicated.
(Of course, you could always get literal by serving clams casino.)

Extra Accents: Cocktail glasses can be casino couture. Float votive candles in oversized martini glasses for a more upscale ambiance.

Remember, what happens at your party, stays at your party… unless your guests talk about how great it was for years to come!
