If you’re looking to spice up the traditional Casino Christmas Party Melbourne, a great way to do this is by hosting a casino themed party. The casino theme puts an exciting twist on the party and is a very popular party theme that never goes out of style. We think what’s really cool about a casino themed party is that it actually opens itself up for a wide variety of sub-themes related to the general casino theme.
Christmas parties—love them or hate them, parties are a big part of the holiday season. If you’re not careful, Christmas parties can quickly become boring and stale, the same party thrown year after year, nothing but multiple variations on the same old theme.
“But wait!” – you may say – “I can’t have a casino party! My guests aren’t into gambling. I want this to be a family-friendly event!” Here’s news for you: a casino themed party does not mean a party with actual gambling! You don’t use real money or make real bets, which essentially means that with this type of entertainment, you can get all the fun of gambling with none of the risk or negativity. It’s the perfect way to give the traditional Christmas party a new and exciting twist, and a sure bet (pun intended) to be fun, engaging and get everyone involved.
Casino Christmas Party Melbourne Themes
Las Vegas Theme
Vegas: the quintessential casino city. This American city has an almost legendary appeal and a pervasive presence in pop culture around the world. “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas”—a cliché born out of the city’s well-known reputation for shenanigans and fun. So many iconic movies and entertainers are associated with the city that you can get really creative with this idea.
But just because you can’t make it to Las Vegas doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all the fun—with a Las Vegas casino themed party, you can bring the shenanigans to your own event! Imagine Christmas in Las Vegas—now that’s something to get excited about!
Casino Royale Theme
The classic James Bond movie, Casino Royale, also makes for a great sub-theme of a casino Christmas party—perhaps one of the easiest themes to execute. One of the main themes of this movie centered on the poker showdown between Bond and Le Chiffre, so you’ll want to have a few poker tables and poker themed decorations at a Casino Royale party. The James Bond movies also feature a variety of specific cocktails for which James Bond was famous for drinking, so a little research into the Bond cocktails gives you a classic drink menu right away. (See “What Does James Bond Drink” from about.com for some great examples!)
The appeal of the 1920’s gangster aesthetic will probably never fully fade from our imagination. While we may objectively know that gangsters in the 1920’s were actually scary, hardened criminals, now that enough time has passed, they are viewed completely differently. In the eye of the public imagination we can’t help but see the 1920’s gangster as something bold, daring, exciting, and perhaps even a bit romantic. Of course, the gangster aesthetic fits perfectly with a casino themed party, as gangsters were indeed the gambling kings with hidden casino tables in their speakeasy’s.
You’ll most likely want dim, mysterious lighting at your event, and you’ll want to decorate with lush velvets and deep, dark, sensuous colors—which can actually blend perfectly with the reds and greens of Christmas decorations.
The Great Gatsby
Ever since the Baz Luhrmann film came out in 2013, Gatsby-themed parties have risen in popularity all around the world. The drama and decadence of the era that was so perfectly encapsulated in the film has now captured our hearts, and we all want to throw parties as epic and exciting as the parties that Jay Gatsby threw in his mansion on West Egg.
From jazz music to flapper fashion, the classy sensibilities of the Great Gatsby fit perfectly into any Casino Christmas Party Melbourne. Christmas is a time of year when people like to dress up, to hearken back to the nostalgic past—and a Great Gatsby themed party provides a perfect way to do that. The edginess and dark undertones of Gatsby fit perfectly into the thrill of a casino themed party, and will be sure to make for one of the most unforgettable Casino Christmas Party Melbourne your guests have ever attended.
