How To Have The Ideal Casino Style Girls’ Night In
For some reason, there’s a perception that casino games are exclusively a boy thing. It might be because there are so many movies with scenes of tough gangsters playing game after game of poker whilst smoking cigars, but as Monica, Phoebe and Rachel proved in Friends poker doesn’t have to be a boy’s game. In fact, a casino theme can be the perfect way to spend an evening in with your girlfriends as you embrace your competitive side whilst catching up. Here are four, easy to follow, steps to ensure your casino girls’ night is a huge success:
Practice makes perfect
Nobody was born with the ability to shuffle cards perfectly, let alone win casino games. Before you even contemplate inviting people over to play, you’ve got to know your Caribbean Stud Poker from your Blackjack. One way to do this is to practice on Yeboyes before the evening so you can ensure that you will impress your friends with your talent rather than giving them something to laugh about!
Transform your home into a casino
There are so many decorations you can use to transform your home into a casino. From the stacks of poker chips, packs of cards, and green felt over surfaces there are lots of websites offering inspiration for your evening; with plenty of amazing ideas on Pinterest that don’t need to break the bank to make an impact on your guests. If you’re not particularly crafty, there are lots of ready-made decorations you can buy too.
Don’t forget the cocktails
Las Vegas isn’t called the City of Sin because everybody is drinking tap water throughout their stay. To have the perfect casino night, you’ve got to plan some exciting beverages for your girlfriends to enjoy. Whether that means whipping up some cocktails of your own or pushing the boat out and hiring a barman to serve you and you friends all evening is dependent on how flush you’re feeling. The key is to have fun with it and don’t be afraid to experiment, but maybe keep a bottle of wine chilling on standby just in case!
Dress the part
Having a casino themed evening gives you and your friends the perfect excuse to dress up. There are so many costume ideas you could use: Las Vegas showgirls, croupiers, or your most glamorous self. Remember to have lots of sparkly jewellery on that you can use when you run out of money! A casino themed party means glamour, so have fun with it.
