Casino parties can be thrown for events ranging from birthdays to anniversaries to simple social get-togethers of friends and family. Although the gambling is free, the enjoyment of playing is the same as in a real casino. Hosting a casino party isn't difficult; it just requires hiring some people to help run the games and gathering food, decorations and a few other items that will ensure guests have a good time.

Choose a specific theme such as Vegas, Casino Royale (James Bond), Mardi Gras or World Series of Poker. Make invitations that fit the theme: cards that look like playing cards or a big slot machine. Send these out to let all your friends and family know about the fun night you're planning.
Rent casino tables and hire dealers to handle all the games. Some popular choices include roulette, blackjack and craps.
Buy or make decorations. Depending on the theme this might include Vegas signs, Mardi Gras masks, fake money banners, coin streamers, playing card centrepieces and card suit (spade, heart, diamond, club) napkins, plates and tablecloths.
Set up a buffet table filled with snacks and finger food items. Make cookies shaped like card suits or decorated to look like casino chips. If your guests will include adults over the legal drinking age, set up a bar and hire a bartender to mix up some cocktails.
Create favour bags as a thank-you to guests for coming. Fill small bags with candy "casino chips." Or have custom playing cards made with a photo of the guest of honour on them and hand these out.
