Hang fuzzy dice with lots of black and red balloons everywhere.
Use as many mirrors as you can in the room
Dim the lights and hang Fairy lights
Make large posters of playing cards
Spray paint statues and things that create that rich feel.
Boxes of any size can be spray painted white with black dots to be stacked for dice decorations. Poster board can be cut and decorated as playing cards to be put on the walls. Shiny borders can be hung on the walls and can be bought at party supply stores. While decorating, think shiny, big, almost gaudy.
Put green felt, bought at craft stores, over tables as table cloths in the game room. Glitter on the tables would give everything some shimmer and can be purchased in shapes of poker chips, playing cards, etc.
If the host is feeling really into the Las Vegas spirit he or she might want to decorate different rooms, or the whole house, as one, or numerous, well-known casino themes. One room could be Egyptian themed for the Luxor, Italian themed for the Bellagio, and, of course, Ancient Greece themed for Caesar’s Palace.
The music when people are arriving could be old Vegas artists like Frank Sinatra/Rat Pack music, Michael Buble and jazz. When the evening starts into the swing of things the music could transition into either dance music or themed Vegas artists; think Neil Diamond, Celine Dion, Elton John, etc.
And, of course, don’t forget Elvis!
Buy poker chips and write the party info on as small as you can and post them
