A Lucky Pair Casino Themed Bridal Shower

If you're looking for a fun alternative to a traditional bridal shower or kitchen tea, why not get your girlfriends around for a fun-filled poker day?  How hilarious and fun - rolling good laughts, great company and plenty of faux casino chips aplenty.  Here's some fun ideas you could incorporate into a Casino-themed bridal shower - which we're dubbing “A Lucky Pair”.  Equally applicable for a wedding theme, bachelor party or Australia Day party, this fun theme is very versatile indeed!

Invitations

Set the scene for the party by sending some Card Night Pop Up party invitations to your girls.  Try some fun words like:

Look out, Las Vegas
Move over, Monte Carlo
This Bridal Shower
Casino [your surname] is open for business!
Play your cards right
and Lady Luck will be on your side
at [address]
RSVP to [host details]
Feeling lucky?

And what’s a casino party without cold, hard cash?  Buy lots of play money from your local Toy Shop and slip in a couple of bills into your invitations for your guests’ first round of drinks.

Decorating and styling

The trick to make this theme classy rather than brassy is to stick with your colour theme.  Think black, white and red – just like a deck of cards – with splashes of green felt fabric on the tables to evoke those casino card tables.  Set the scene with some Card Night table centrepieces and hanging decorations, and then feature special card and dice themed balloons among standard red, black and white helium party balloons for a cheap but classy display.  Visit your local $2 shop and buy as many decks of cards as you can carry!  Try making a card backdrop by sticking together dozens of cards to form your decorative Ace in the hole!  And don’t forget to dig out your Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin CDs for some mood music straight from the Brat Pack.

Entertainment

Here’s where the fun really starts!  If you’ve got the cash stashed, then rent casino gaming equipment from local vendors – think poker, blackjack, craps, wheel of fortune and roulette tables.  Or simply ask some of your more casino savvy guests to man some tables in shifts.  All you need are packs of cards and a dealer who knows what he’s doing!  Provide the dealer with a vest and visor, and give your guests a wad of play cash each.  If you’re lucky, you may even have found some plastic gambling chips, for an extra authentic feel.  If you play your cards right, you can deal everyone a highly coveted royal flush!

Menus, catering and cocktails

The ‘Vesper Martini’ was made famous by James Bond, when he ordered it in both the book and movie versions of Casino Royale.  Ian Fleming describes it as “Three measures of Gordon’s, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it very well until it’s ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon-peel. Got it?”  So, serve martinis – shaken, not stirred of course – alongside chilled champagne and scotch on the rocks. 

When it comes to food, go all out with five star fare!  Think oysters on the half shell, caviar on wafer biscuits, foie gras and cooked lobster in shot glasses.  Remember, cocktail parties works best with finger food, but if you decide you need some plates, consider Pink Frosting’s Card Night Party Plates and Napkins.

Favours and thank yous

The cards are already in your favor, now it’s time for your guests to go home with a party favour to remember a fabulous night!  Hand out playful and personalised decks of cards so that each of your guests can keep dealing the winners.  Pink Frosting now has dozens of Casino themed favours to choose from, so go ahead and get lucky!
