Hosting a Casino Night is great for an office holiday party, adult birthday party or even a really fun Bachelor or Bachelorette party! I recently created these Casino Night decorations for a company doing a Casino Night holiday party. It was a lot of fun transforming their warehouse space into a Las Vegas style party!
Casino Night Decorations
When decorating a large space, I recommend selecting 3-4 colors and using big swaths of those colors. In this case I chose black and gold as my main colors and added red and white as accent colors. You also want to think large scale on decorations.
Using large boxes and wrapping paper, I created dice towers. Two were on either side of the party entrance and two were on either side of the food tables. The balloon and ostrich feather topper was simple to make. I inflated gold, white, black and red balloons and put them on balloon sticks. The ostrich feathers (ordered from etsy) were taped to bamboo skewers with red tape. I used a block of floral foam wrapped in red tissue paper and added the balloons and feathers.
For the main backdrop I rented 30′ of pipe and drape from a local party rental store. This helped define the party space in the large warehouse. It also gave us a nice backdrop to add the food tables and some decor. From the pipe and drape I hung gold foil fringe curtain that was 8′ tall and 18′ wide. Layered on top of that were giant playing cards that I taped into the fan and added fishing line to hang from the drape. I used s-hooks to hang everything to the top of the pipe and drape.
For the food tables I added black linens and gold sequin table runners. I wasn’t still there when the food was delivered so I don’t have pictures of the final set-up. The hosts also offered this fun mix-your-own soda bar. Soda shops are HUGE here in Utah. I added cute gold signs (from the dollare store) that had a poker hand as the title and mix-in ideas. The soda bar included soda, Torani syrups, limes and half & half. To keep the 2-liter soda cold we used shallow plastic bins filled with ice that we wrapped in red tissue paper. The gold dot cups and metallic red straws were the perfect touch.
Casino Night Centerpieces
Continuing with the idea from the dice towers, I created balloon and feather centerpieces for the 4 cocktail tables and the food table. Wrapping each first in red and then gold tissue paper was inexpensive and added color. Next I laid out playing cards and taped them together before wrapping around the middle of each vase. I then followed the same technique from the dice towers with floral foam, balloons and feathers to create the filler on these centerpieces.
In addition to the food tables, 4 cocktail tables and the casino game tables, I also set out 2 square card tables with cards on them for anyone wanting to just play a regular card game. The tables were accented with gold chairs, black linens and gold sequin table runners.
