  • Novelty money that you can buy or make yourself
  • Printed guides for the winning poker hands and rules to popular casino games
Get your poker night party guests excited for your event with creative invites like our personalized invitations, which can be printed to include all of the party details! For a unique touch, you can make your own casino party invitations. This can be a fun activity to get guests excited for your Las Vegas party! Here are some casino invitation ideas for your upcoming poker party:
  • Attach a card-style invitation to a personalized Casino favor such as a button or magnet.
Include card suit confetti in the envelope with your invitations for a dash of Vegas glitz. Seal the envelopes with a personalized sticker printed with your party information or special welcome message.  
  • Plan a swanky event and let guests know you would like them to dress in formal attire.

Casino Party Decoration & Food

The right decorations can make all the difference at your Casino party! Whether you would like to use standard decorations or a wild Las Vegas style, you'll find great Casino ideas below:

  • Lay out a deck of playing cards or poker chips as table scatter for your casino table decorations.
  • Rent out a community center or host your event in a rec room to create a large open floor full of different gambling games. Set up roulette, poker tables, and other games of chance.
  • Float a few balloons around the party area. Include a few balloons in solid colors that match the colors of your poker chips and use a thick black marker to put a dollar amount on them
In addition to typical party food like chips, veggie platters, hamburgers and hotdogs, you can add some casino themed food into the mix. Here are some suggestions to make your event feel like a top tier Vegas hotel:
  • Serve snacks on silver trays. For a big fundraiser event, get volunteers to walk around with water, juice, and appetizers on platters for a Las Vegas elite experience.
  • Mini servings and champagne glasses will make your guests feel like they are big rollers at a Las Vegas hotel. Serve shrimp, meatballs, finger sandwiches and other small sized snacks to create a fancy feel.
