Casino Time!

I've got a few new parties in the works for October, and one of them is a Casino-themed 40th birthday!
 I love a good casino party, because people love to let loose and party at events that are themed like this!
They are just fun!
I worked up an inspiration board for the client last week, and thought I'd post it here too!
My color scheme is of course; red, black, white, with a touch of green.

There are SO many fun ideas for this party that I am thinking about, but here is a little sampling:
  • Signature drink: The Poker Face
  • Buffet of red and black sweets
  • Savory buffet to include "club" sandwiches and Clams Casino, and BlackJack Chicken
  • Large vases of poker chips and dice
  • Ostrich feather centerpieces
  • Custom playing card bunting behind the dessert display
  • Buffets covered in green felt
I'm also open to your suggestions! :)
