If you want the birthday guy to feel like a high roller, then throw him a casino-themed party. Casino parties can be casual gatherings or upscale, formal affairs complete with black tie and formal gowns. For a formal event, hire a bartender to sling drinks like the famous Vesper seen in the movie "Casino Royale." Invite a photographer to come and snap photos during game playing and dancing. Your guests will feel like stars photographed by the paparazzi.

Instructions

1 Send invitations to your guests at least two weeks in advance. Choose playing-card-style invitations that set the mood of the party. Include instructions to guests on how to dress and the time and date of the event, and ask them to RSVP. You could also list a few games or activities that guests will play.

2 Shop for festive decorations for your casino party. Buy green felt tablecloths or a bolt of green felt. Choose playing card posters to hang on walls. Buy green and red streamers to hang from ceiling fans and on walls. Buy casino-themed pop-up centrepieces for tables. Also, buy playing cards, poker chips and dice.

3 Make a list of all the ingredients you will need to make your recipes. Finger foods like tiny sandwiches and cheeses skewered on fancy toothpicks are easy to eat and can be made elegant to look at. Write out your bar needs too; include alcohol for cocktails, ice and any glassware needed.

4 Decorate for your party. Cover the tables with felt to transform them to poker tables. Hang posters and streamers around your party space. Place playing cards, chips and dice in the centre of the tables. Set up tables for different games. One table could be the blackjack able, another table could be the Texas hold'em table. This will make it easy for guests to find their favourite game.

5 Prepare the food, and set the food out on pretty food trays. Set your bar up, including cups, ice and drink components. Welcome guests as they come in and direct them to the food and drink area.
