Many boys choose a theme for their Bar Mitzvah party. One of the nice things about having a theme is that it can be incorporated into nearly all aspects of the party – starting with the party invitations all the way through the party favors. This article will focus on a ‘Casino Night’ theme.
Start with the Invitations: Set the mood for the party by sending out casino themed party invitations. By typing in ‘casino invitations’ in your search bar you will find yourself with many options. I was especially impressed with the large selection at ‘Impressinprint’. With their invitations you can print them yourselves or have them printed them for you.
Set a Casino Themed Place Card Table: There are several Casino themed place card holders available. It will help set the scene for the party. Let your guests take home the place card holders as a memento from your party – they can use it as either a photo or memo holder.
Dress the Part: Dress yourself and the wait staff in fun casino apparel such as armbands, casino theme ties, casino aprons and visors and much more. Just type each of those words (armbands, ties, aprons, visors) with the word “casino” in front of it in your search bar and you will come up with a large variety of affordable casino apparel. Your guests will get a kick out of everyone being dressed for the part!
The Meal: You can’t go wrong having a buffet like all the Casino hotels serve. Or, if you are going to serve a sit down meal give all the dishes a fun, gambling sound name (example: ‘Gambler’s Delight Chicken Piccata” and “Green with Money Green Beans Almondine”) and put a ‘Menu’ on every table. You and your family will have fun coming up with the names.
Decorations: Spend a few minutes researching ‘casino decorations’ and you’ll find more options than you can imagine. However, some of the best suppliers of casino themed decorations are those companies that specialize in ‘prom decorations’. They even offer Casino theme kits that include archways, backgrounds, columns and other large props. You will quickly be able to turn a large, plain room into a bustling Casino.
Activities: You can set up ‘gaming tables’ and hire dealers if you’d like – of course you’ll need to use chocolate poker chips and fake money (you can make your own money and input family members photos on the different denominations). To find out about renting casino equipment just type “casino equipment rental – city state” (example: casino equipment rental – birmingham mi) in your search bar to locate companies offering these services near you.
