Having children means going to pirate and princess themed kids parties at least a couple of times a year, but these themes are overdone and should be retired forever.
If you’re trying to come up with something different, we have the perfect solution: a casino themed party! Your kids’ party will become a magical event, illuminated by the neon lights of Las Vegas casinos and our guide makes it easy with ideas for invitations, supplies, decorations, snacks, and party favours.
Kids Casino Party Invitations
The first introduction your child’s guests will have to their party is the invitation, so it’s important that these are perfectly theme appropriate. Fortunately there are plenty of casino themed invitation templates available which can be personalised and printed, but you could always create your own invitations quite simply.
- Purchase oversized playing cards and write all the party information on the card with a metallic gold permanent marker
- Put the cards in red or black envelopes and write each child’s name on the envelope with a metallic silver permanent marker
- Place gold star confetti in the envelopes along with the card invitation before the sealing the envelope for an extra special touch
- Hand deliver each invitation to make each guest feel special
