Casino Party

Casino Party

Rent or purchase poker, roulette, Texas Hold 'Em, or baccarat tables, or make your own by draping tables with green felt and using white paint to mark off playing surfaces. Give each guest a set amount of play money to hit the tables with, and then award a "High Roller" prize to the guest with the most money at the end of the night. For a sophisticated touch, have waiters serve appetizers and drinks to the guests while they play.
