Trend Alert: Casino-Style Bar Mitzvah
Are you looking to make your Bar or Bat Mitzvah extra fun? How about incorporating a Casino-style Bar Mitzvah theme into your party? We love this idea because it’s a sure-fire way to get all of your guests involved in the action.
Start by setting the tone for your event by selecting the right invitation. We think this invitation is just perfect!
You’ll want to decorate your venue appropriately. Rent archways, pillars and other large props. You can even rent casino equipment in most large cities and before you know it, you’ll have a plain room looking like a casino. If you can, light up a marquee outside the venue with your name on it. Set up gaming tables, slot machines and don’t forget the entertainment. Hire an Elvis impersonator if possible. Your guests will love it!
Dress the wait staff in true Vegas-style attire. Don’t forget to hire professional dealers. You can use chocolate poker chips with your name on them for currency, or create your own funny money. Pictures of your family members may be placed on the different denominations of paper money.
You can even order armbands, visors, boas, hi-hats and roulette-wheel sunglasses for your guests. Add to the party atmosphere by having everyone wear beads with poker chip medallions attached.
For dinner, consider having a buffet. Every casino has one. Have place cards in front of each item on the buffet to let your guests know what they are having. Be creative and give each item a gambling-related name such as “Seeing Green Sea Bass” or “Lucky 7 Salad”. You get the idea.
For dessert, have a giant cake decorated as a slot machine.
A casino-themed party for your Mitzvah is a perfect way to celebrate. With a little pre-planning, you’ll be a high-roller in the eyes of your guests!
