Casino Game Night Party Details:This is what Maureen said about planning/styling the party-

“I love game nights with friends.  Now that everyone has kids, sometimes we just want a low key evening in instead of going out to dinner.  Entertainment can be pretty simple when you have a fun group and some classic games (see the bottom of my post for my favorites).

I wanted to design a Printable Game Night or Poker Party invitation and design set that was the common red, black and white but had some edge and some vintage feel to it.  Not quite the typical “vegas” look, but something more stylish. I hope you love!  These Game Night Printables are in our shop here.

DECOR:
The focal point of the room was the dessert table that was on our built-in in our dining room. The huge “Casino Night” poster design that we created was printed by PrintMy and looked amazing with fabulous color.

To add height, I used Black Storage Boxes of different height to raise and lower certain parts of the dessert table and White Milk Glass Cake Stands.

I used white Styrofoam Cubes to make the 3D vintage looking dice with our Printable.  I also placed our “Game Rules” 8×10 Party Sign on a White Easel. (None of these rules were actually followed)

One EASY and inexpensive decoration was the House of Cards.  I made House of Cards props using Jumbo Playing Cards and hot glue. (Did you really think those were just free standing on the tables?! LOL!)  I made these and put them all over the place!

The dining room table was a poker table top on top of our regular table.  It not only fit the “look” but also was functional for the party.  You can find inexpensive ones here.

The centerpieces were simple Glass Apothecary Jars filled with red and white candy along with scattered dice.

DESSERTS:
I made the super easy desserts for the party that were casino / game themed!

I served Lucky Cupcakes in our printable cupcake wrappers. We put our printable party flagson the Heart Topped Toothpicks and stuck them into the cupcakes.  We also served black and white macarons on the cake stands. Fun printable folding party labels were used to label all of our desserts in the shape of a spade or club (in the shop!)

I made Dice Truffles using this square mold and a combination of Oreo crumbs and Cream Cheese (so simple!) dipped in black chocolate and added white fondant dots to the outsides.

The Playing Card Cookies were also no-bake and simple to make! (Use Petite Ecolier Cookies +Fondant Heart and Diamond Mini Cutters.

We dressed up white scalloped popcorn boxes with a printable party logo and red tissue paper from Nashville Wraps.

I also made chocolate ganache macarons (black and white) to coordinate. I’ll be posting a video tutorial soon!

ACTIVITIES:

We played LCR (Left Center, Right), which was a total hit with my friends.  A friend broughtCards Against Humanity, too. I hear that is quite dirty and we didn’t end up having time to play but I’m intrigued!  We also played Casino Yahtzee and a few others.

The guys played poker on our poker table top with a simple case of poker chips. 

I served a Southern meal (pulled pork bbq, corn bread (made by my friend, Amy), Southern Green Beans, Cole Slaw, Mac and Cheese (in the crock pot!) and southern banana pudding.

The night was a blast!

FAVORS:
The guests all left with a pack of playing cards (I bought a set of bulk ones here) that we wrapped with our printable design from our shop. SO Easy! People loved it!

Special thanks to Michelle of Michelle Kujawski Photography for the photos”!

    I love all of your photos and ideas. On average, how much do you spend on materials to create your decorations? And how long does it take you to create your decor?

    Thanks again so much for featuring!

  3. I don’t know if it’s just me or if everybody else encountering problems with your
    site. It seems like some of the text within your content are running off the screen. Can somebody
    else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too?
