How to Throw a Vegas-themed 21st Birthday Party in the Pandemic – Our Guide

Nothing quite feels like home, but the allure of Las Vegas is not lost on people in the UK either. With 21 being the legal age in the US, it’s a good excuse as any to fly to Sin City to celebrate 21st birthday celebrations. 

However, with international flights shuttered due to the ongoing pandemic, most people will have to improvise to get their Vegas dreams fulfilled. To help you out, here are three  Vegas-themed 21st birthday party ideas to try for your socially-distanced celebration:

Use a playing card or poker chip for invitations

Birthday invitation cards don’t just let your guests know that you want to see them at your celebration; it also sets your party’s tone and theme. What’s Las Vegas known for but splendor and gambling, after all?

An excellent way to communicate the Vegas theme is by using a playing card showing your party’s date, time, and venue. Should you want to splurge a little, then you can engrave those details in a poker chip as well! If that doesn’t scream Las Vegas, then nothing will!

Hire Fun Casino table games

It wouldn’t be Las Vegas without casino games, but it’s still best not to get real money involved to ensure a safe space. After all, you likely do not have the security of intimidating bouncers that’s usually necessary when gambling and alcohol mix. 

That being said, gambling and alcohol are what make Las Vegas what it is, so you’ll still want to have Roulette tables, Blackjack, Texas Hold ‘Em Poker, Stud Poker, and an open bar. This is where Fun Casino comes in.  

The Fun Casino operates by handing out guests “Fun Money,” which can be exchanged for chips at the table. There’s still a limited supply of Fun Money and chips, which makes it a valuable commodity and adds to the excitement of gambling, at least while your celebration lasts. The person with the most chips by the end of the night wins a prize. 

Our BlackJack and Roulette tables come with professional croupiers willing to teach newcomers and entertain long-time players alike. This means that even guests with no experience in casinos will enjoy the party as well!

Our most popular games are (in order) Roulette, Blackjack, and 3 Card Brag.

Get a casino-theme backdrop 

What’s a Las Vegas without the excess and the glamour? Layout a red carpet and a few barrier posts and rope to your venue’s entrance, and hire a photographer for the celebrity experience. Slap on some neon-flashing lights on the facade and inside your venue for the old-timey bu,t classic ambiance. Lastly, make a playlist topped by contemporary Las Vegas tunes like Lady Gaga’s Poker Face and Katy Perry’s Waking up in Vegas, along with classics like Elvis Presley’s Viva Las Vegas and ABBA’s Take a Chance to enhance the vibe!

Our 2 fabulous themes are Las Vegas and James Bond.

As for the food, party platters, and bite-sized finger foods, along with waiters handing out glasses of champagne, will surely keep your guests well-fed, slightly buzzed, and having fun!
