Casino Party Testimonial

Your team did a fantastic job at our surprise 50th Birthday. Darrin showed up on time to start setting up. Jan and Bruce arrived, introduced themselves and were ready to start the night as the first guest arrived.

The personalized fake money was a nice touch! Our guests were both new & experienced at Blackjack & Craps and they both commented on how much fun they had.

One guest mentioned that Bruce remembered everyone's name!

I'll be sure to recommend Funtastic Events to anyone looking for a great addition to their party.
Thanks Again!

If you are preparing to host a luau, you have probably been working hard coming up with a great menu and play list. You may think you are done preparing, but there is one more thing to consider.

It is critical that you make sure your guests are having an amazing time. If you fail to plan some fun activities, your guest will probably leave once they are full of food and drink.

One way to keep everyone around for a good while longer is to plan on some fun, and theme appropriate activities and games. A luau lends itself really well to implementing traditional Hawaiian games and typical party games.

Here are a few things you may want to try at your next luau.

Casino, Hawaiian Style

Casino games like roulette, poker, craps, and blackjack all lend themselves really well to luaus. The casino games will keep your guests entertained for hours.

You can get rent casino game tables from any casino party company.


Throw on some fun Hawaiian music and grab a broomstick; it is time for some limbo! Find out how low your guests can go while you and a friend hold on to the stick at varying heights.

Pass The Coconut

For a Hawaiian twist on a popular game, replace a potato with a coconut and have a game of “hot potato.”

With everyone sitting in a circle, put on some fun Hawaiian music and have all participants pass the coconut until the music stops. Whoever has the coconut when the music stops is out!


Find out which of your guests is truly skilled. Line everyone up and see whom can hula hoop for the longest.

Make it tougher if it goes on for too long by adding a second or even third hula-hoop to each remaining person.


Mustache Party – It’s now the time of year that some women absolutely love, while others seem to hate. It’s the time when men cease doing anything with any of their facial hair in what has long been referred to as both “Movember” and “No Shave November.”

Despite some women not liking this, it has actually been shown as of late that not shaving during this particular time of year actually does some good.mustauche party

Similar to Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which takes place during the month of October, “No Shave November” helps to raise awareness regarding men’s health, more especially in relation to mental health, prostate cancer, and testicular cancer.

Men partake in this by growing a mustache during the entire month of November, which is something that ended up leading to conversations about men’s health, as well as collecting donations for multiple men’s health organizations.

Women can also take part in this as well, even though they aren’t able to grow facial hair like men can; however, they can organize various events and collect donations for various organizations that help to promote men’s health.

Mustache Party

A great way to collect donations is to throw a “Movember” party, otherwise known as a “Mo Party.” For instance, invite friends to either a local restaurant or bar, bring snacks to your work for a form of celebration, or host a party right in your own home.

Educate your guests about various men’s health issues and encourage them to donate to help with the cause, all while having fun at the same time.

Here are some great tips for you to make note of that will help you throw your own successful “Mo Party”!

Add Mustaches to Party Décor

mustauche theme partyMustache-shaped party decoration can often be hard to locate, no matter where you look. In this case, incorporate fake ones into your own decor yourself, such as cutting out mustache shapes to add to the invitations using construction paper of different colors.

Of course, you will need to include as many details as possible on the invitations. If you would prefer to not create these yourself, you could choose to create them electronically instead.

Furthermore, hang a mustache-printed banner in the entryway of your home so that your guests are aware of the purpose of the party.

Additionally, it will be a good idea to inform your guests about where they can leave their donations, as well as who they can make checks out to if they wish to donate that way.

You should also choose a more general color scheme for your party, as well as coordinate decorations to help embellish the space itself.

For instance, line the space with either streamers or garland, incorporate paper lanterns, metallic whirlsmustauche theme, or any other kind of hanging decorations that you feel make be appropriate – of course, with a few mustache clings attached to them.

You can also use traditional balloons as table decorations; however consider drawing mustaches on these as well with a permanent market or even placing mustache stickers on them if you can find some.

Add some casino tables to provide an activity for your guests. They will compete at the gambling tables, to see who ends up with the biggest stash!

Another fun activity would be to offer some of these items up as prizes by winning games that can be played throughout the party, such as a “guess the mustache” type of game, which involves printing out photos of famous celebrities with recognizable mustaches, but covering everything up except their facial hair.

The first guest who correctly gets the most guesses on who the facial hair belongs to will win the prizes!

Christmas is coming up, and while you can always go the traditional route for your party, nowadays having a themed party is common — and a lot of fun — too.

This is the time of year to get everyone together, be they family, neighbors, or even co-workers.How to Have a Perfect Christmas Party

The party doesn’t need to be fancy and full of fuss, but the theme can help everyone get into the spirit of the holiday.

Christmas Isn’t the Only Theme

While the overriding look of the party may be Christmas-based, you can add more themes for a fun time.

Try a Roaring Twenties theme with casino games, flapper outfits, a dance contest, or even Charleston lessons.

Have people dress like Great Gatsby characters or gangsters and molls.

Of course, if you don’t want to have a fully themed party happening, you can still have a secondary theme.

Ugly Sweater Theme

Ugly Christmas sweaters can be a great theme that’s easy for people to participate in. Many of your guests will have an ugly sweater or two buried at the back of a closet, an old gift form a relative who meant well but didn’t have the best taste.

Online sites also sell ugly Christmas sweaters for those people who were never blessed with the task of smiling at a relative while holding a knit monstrosity. Even better, there are now ugly Hanukkah sweaters available, too.

Don’t Forget the Food, Delicious Food

party rentals atlantaSometimes simpler is better, and Christmas party food does not have to be a gourmet feast for your guests to have a good time.

Going the potluck route is always helpful — just be sure you keep a list of who’s bringing what so you don’t end up with ten batches of cookies (though there are people who would argue that ten batches of cookies is perfectly acceptable, of course).

Speaking of cookies, hold a cookie swap where everyone brings their favorite cookie recipe.

Or, have the party catered or just buy deli and fruit platters at the grocery store.

The point is to have tasty food that people can eat easily while mingling. Have lots of appetizers around, too, so people get a variety of foods as they nibble.


casino royale theme partyA Casino Royale Theme Party is a great way to have fun with your family and friends for your next celebration.

Games are one of the most important aspects of the party, but you should also consider the food and decorations to have a themed party that everyone will be talking about for weeks to come.

Some of the best games to inspire the James Bond wannabes at your party include roulette, blackjack and craps.

Make sure the focus of the party is on having fun, rather than who’s winning all the games.

You will want to ensure that you have enough wait staff and a bartender to take care of all the guests so they don’t have to do any self-serving.

casino royale themeWhen sending out invitations, ask everyone to dress their best. Suits and cocktail dresses will make the event feel truly special.

This is the time to pull that tuxedo out of the closet. They can also be rented fairly cheaply for those who don’t have one of their own.

Women should look for the fanciest and flashiest dress they can find, there is no such things as too much bling with a Casino Royale style party.

Be sure to hire professionals to take care of your games and create a unique casino atmosphere at your party location.

This is not the time for your guests to have issues with game play.

Great Gatsby Themed PartyAfter the film a few years ago called ‘the Great Gatsby’ no wonder everybody became obsessed with the glamour and style of the 1920’s. People everywhere are taking the opportunity to celebrate the styles and parties of the Gatsby era.

If you’ve been thinking of hosting a Great Gatsby themed party of your own then a few tips may be in order. These tips will help you lift your champagne glass and throw an absolutely incredible party with all of your friends, no matter what the occasion.

Evenings are always the best time for a Great Gatsby party. They should begin in the evening and go on until all hours of the morning. Around 8PM is a good time to have guests begin to arrive, knowing that some will naturally be ‘fashionably late’.

Venue and Guests

When selecting a proper venue for your party your budget is always a huge consideration. So is your guest list. The weather will be a huge factor as well.great gatsby theme party

The best venues will offer both indoor and outdoor space, with plenty of room for various activities and entertainment. Parties with enough space for guests to flow freely are much more comfortable and enjoyable.

It can get really stuffy with a lot of people all cramped together with hardly enough room to walk around. The rooms and outside areas must be more than enough to hold all your guests comfortably.

People should be able to move about unhindered without bumping the other guests in passing. If your guest list is a short one then a home party may be possible. However, anything over 50 calls for renting a venue that gives you more space.


Your invitations need to be sent out 6 to 8 weeks prior to your party date. They cannot be sent out too early.

A Great Gatsby party requires themed outfits and costumes so your guests will need plenty of time to decide on what to wear and where to get it. Give all your guests the time they need to RSVP and prepare for the occasion.

Everybody loves an invitation that carries a great look and feel. The artwork is important. You want a Great Gatsby invitation to reflect elegance, style, and class. It’s the same even if your invitations are digital. They should reflect the mood and theme of the evening.


One easy way to get your theme and decorations right is to simply watch the movie, or watch it again if you already have.

Do what Mr. Gatsby did for his party. It is fun to watch how things unfold in the movie but for you there are going to be little nuisances like short time-lines, setting the scene at the venue, and a tight budget.


roaring twenties theme partyOne of the most crucial aspects of your Great Gatsby theme will be the music.

You want something people get up and move to. That could mean plugging in your iPod to play your favorites from the Gatsby playlist (jazz and classical) or simply playing the Great Gatsby soundtrack from the movie.

As long as the music is from the 1920’s it will be fine, whether from your iPod or a live band. Your guests just want to sip champagne and ‘shake their groove thing’ out on the dance floor.

If you really want to excite your guests and you have a large guest list, consider hiring yourself a casino party company. They can bring in gambling tables to thrill your guest and give it even more of a 1920’s feel.

Plan Your Menu

When it comes to food you can serve small finger-foods. All you need are little small snacks to nibble between sips of champagne and dancing. These will be more than adequate for this type of party.

Good luck on planning your Great Gatsby Themed Party.
