There’s nothing more fun than a casino-night party. Whenever we think about one, we can’t help but remember James Bond in Casino Royale and how much fun it would be to have a party like that. It makes a great theme for an engagement party or any occasion.
As a theme, it can be elegant and quite formal or have a country-fair feel. It’s ideal for both large and small parties and with the right casino themed party decorations you can transform just about any space into a fun and fanciful casino atmosphere.
Supplies are easy enough to come by. You can go all out and rent a lot of what is needed. Most event planners have access to casino rental services since it’s a common theme for fundraisers. Or, you can make a lot of stuff yourself, you just need a lot of green felt.
You can set up a Texas Hold’m Poker Table, a Black Jack Table, Bingo Games, A “Wheel of Fortune Money Wheel” and even buy (on Ebay) or rent a slot machine. Don’t forget to provide your guests with lots of “Funny Money”.
Casino Night Party Colors
There really is no set color scheme for a casino party but keep in mind that the basic colors you should use in your props and other decorations are derived from the suits on playing cards and the green felt most commonly found on game tables. So red, black and green should be your starting point.
You can stick to the basics, or add silver and/or gold accents which add an elegant touch to your casino theme. The more you play up the silver and gold, the more elegant the atmosphere.

Go for large paper PomPoms, paper or foil hanging ornaments, and of course balloons. Having lots and lots of any decoration will really transform a space. And…They’re all inexpensive so you get a lot of bang for you buck!
For a formal look…use white dishes, white linens and glass and crystal. Add silver accents to create a crisp and elegant backdrop for the theme.
Switch out the colorful balloons for white and pearl balloons to get a more elegant and formal look. There are so many nifty little items that are inexpensive and will add a lot of fun and drama to your casino theme.
Get red dice candles and scatter them throughout the room and on tables. Cover your surfaces with red and black confetti in playing-card suits and small party favors. Get lots and lots of them. They’re cheap and will go a long way in making your room look amazing–the trick is in having lots of them and not having things too sparse.
