Casino Night Party
For a big money theme, rent a hall or designate a large room in your home as the honorary casino. Plastic gold coins and paper money create the big-spenders atmosphere, scratch-off lottery tickets present the perfect party prize and black, red and white decorations, plastic cups and plates carry on the theme. Donít forget the poker chips!
Decks of cards, dice and felt tablecloths (for blackjack, etc) provide some entertainment, but consider looking around for cheap slot machines, roulette wheels, and so forth (consider renting if buying is out of the question).
Try to follow the theme for your musical selections and consider setting up a karaoke machine in case anyone is moved to tell jokes or sing songs.
Give each guest an allotment of play money and offer additional tender if they agree to play dealer for a couple of rounds (if you canít find people to sit in as dealers in the first place).
At the end of the night, give the birthday guest his or her presents and also present the casino tycoon with the most play money a present of his or her own.
The fun and competitive nature of a casino should have your guests laughing for hours!
