Whether you’re hosting a seasonal get-together or simply organising a regular evening in with friends, it’s always worth setting a stylish tone. And what could be more glamorous than bringing a bit of the casino spirit into your home?
Casinos have a long history of luxury. Picture the crowd around a roulette table and tuxedos, cocktail dresses, and glasses of champagne all leap to mind. Some of the world’s most glamourous destinations are home to high-end casinos, from the Casino de Monte-Carlo to London’s famous Ritz Club.
But you don’t have to travel the world in order to recreate the casino vibe. You just need to bring those elements into your home. The games themselves are the obvious starting point. The right combination of games will bring a frisson of excitement to the evening and the live casino online experience is the way to do it.
Games such as blackjack and roulette, along with various kinds of poker, will ensure that there’s fun for all. All your guests need are their mobile phones or tablets and they’re ready to play. You could even use a laptop as a roulette area, in order to recreate the feeling of people crowding around the table that you get in a traditional casino.
In addition to ensuring the right games are available for your guests to enjoy, hosting the perfect casino night also means a keen focus on food and drink. Serving a glamourous crowd, as they do, means that casinos have to offer top-notch fare. As such, it’s up to you to create a gourmet experience as part of your casino night!
Providing a sit-down dining experience will likely take you away from the casino action for much of the evening, so why not opt for elegant party food instead? You can be as creative as you like and should be able to do much of the prep before your guests arrive. And if culinary skills aren’t your forte, don’t despair. You could always order in a selection of upscale party food so that the catering is taken care of for you.
Then, of course, there are the drinks. Casinos and cocktails go hand in hand (just think of James Bond ordering his vodka martini!), so why not impress your friends with your mixology skills as part of your elegant casino night? Go for traditional elegant drinks, such as the aptly named ‘casino’ in order to deliver a true sense of glamour
Any stylish party is all about the finer details, so be sure to take care of those too. Set the tone from the outset with hand-written invitation cards delivered to each of your guests. Sending a message on social media is practical, but doesn’t have quite the same impact!
It’s also important to make it clear that there’s a dress code and that it’s to be an evening of elegance – jeans and t-shirts will absolutely not cut it at your stylish casino get together!
