It’s easy to find a home poker kit that includes cards, nice chips and a good playing surface. But if you don’t have one of these fancy kits, take a trip to a fabric store and get a big swatch of green felt to put over your tabletop.

It’s important to make sure you have enough poker chips for all of your guests. You probably can’t get by with less than 35 chips per person — most experts suggest more like 50 to 100 per head. If you don’t mind a mish-mash, ask your guests to bring some extra chips of their own. If you’re playing Texas Hold ‘Em, make sure you have a special chip set aside for the button.

To round out the theme, pick up some casino-themed napkins and plates decorated with images of dice, cards or dollar signs from a party store.


Even if you’re not playing for high stakes, you can still dress the part. Asking guests to come in suits and ties or cocktail dresses makes a simple get-together seem like an event.

You can also go casual and ironic by getting cheap costume armbands and green plastic dealer visors — poker doesn’t have to be super serious.

Playing with some card sharks? If they arrive wearing shirts with billowy sleeves, make sure they roll them up when you play so they can’t hide cards in them.


Texas Hold ‘Em is all the rage, but you can have a great card party with other poker variations: five-card draw, seven-card stud, hi/lo, baseball poker and other make-up-your-own-rules games.

The most important thing when playing poker is to be familiar with the winning hands. Here they are from high to low:

  • Royal flush
  • Straight flush
  • Four of a kind
  • Full house
  • Flush
  • Straight
  • Three of a kind
  • Two pair
  • One pair

Too confusing? Just remember that a full house flushes a straight.



Get a pizza delivered for quick sustenance that minimizes card-playing down time. Or put together a simple spread of appetizers. Make your own or get a big box of warm-in-the-oven hors d’oeurves at a warehouse club store. Just keep the food away from the playing table.


If you’re playing poker, you might be thinking martinis are in order. Martinis will make your party upscale for sure (but they do call to mind James Bond, and his game was baccarat). If you’re going to go for some straight liquor, grab a bottle of single-malt scotch. Or, to mix cards and cocktails, consider the classy, old-fashioned cocktail called the Sidecar.


  • 2 parts Cognac
  • 1 part triple sec
  • 1 part freshly squeezed lemon juice

Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Add ice. Shake, then strain into a chilled highball glass.

There are many who say that serious cards need to be played without the hazy influence of booze. So for a non-alcoholic alternative, grab some carbonated soda water and mix it up with some Italian syrup.

For your casino-themed party, think red, black and especially green! Decorate your place with fake money, chips and cards. Turn the lights down low and string twinkly lights everywhere to set the mood.

Provide each of your guests with little buckets for their winnings. To keep people circulating and interacting with one another, give everyone a score card that keeps tracks of how many games they’ve tried.

Cover tables with black felt and use a white paint marker to draw blackjack, craps and baccarat lines, or buy pre-made game layouts. You should have a rule book handy in case there are any disputes, but don’t forget this old adage: The house always wins!


Depending on the type of establishment you’re running, you might want some guests to be patrons, and others to work the tables as dealers. Make sure your gamblers are dressed to the nines — visualize a tuxedo-wearing James Bond staring down Le Chiffre in Casino Royale to get the right idea. Ladies and gents should get dolled up and into character.

Here are some ideas for spiffy clothing and accessories for your casino party outfit:

  • Tuxedos and suits for the gents, sparkly attire for the ladies
  • Pocket watches, opera gloves or sparkly jewelry
  • Aces up your sleeves
  • Decks of cards, dice, chips, fake money
  • Prizes for the biggest spenders and biggest losers


Every casino party activity should center around gambling so set up different zones for different events: one for Texas Hold ‘Em, one for 5-card Stud and other poker games, and another for dice games and roulette.

Partner up novice gamblers with old pros, and make sure there’s space around your tables so people can watch and learn. If you’re feeling unconventional, make a tiny obstacle course or play charades!


When you think casino, you generally think of drinks — and lots of them! — but don’t forget to fortify people’s stomachs with some good food!

If your casino leans more towards the highbrow, bust out the chafing dish and serve Swedish meatballs or warm crab and artichoke dip. Or stoke your guests’ appetites with spicy foods like wings, chips with charred corn salsa and tangy tomato bruschetta.

Hand out plenty of cocktail napkins so that hands, cards and tables stay clean. You don’t want anything to undermine the legitimacy of your operation!


Champagne Cocktail (serves 1)

  • 2 dashes bitters
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Chilled Champagne

For a nonalcoholic alternative, make pitchers of classics like Shirley Temples and Roy Rogers. Be sure to decorate with maraschino cherries and groovy stir sticks.
