Seating plans and escort cards
- The table plan pictured here uses playing cards for table names, with a Las Vegas style ‘Welcome’ heading.
- This seating plan uses a large roulette wheel, with guest’s names reading out from the centre. It would make a fantastic display for your reception!
- For the DIY readers among you, this is a great idea for a casino themed seating plan. Using a large, painted baroque style frame with a chalkboard backing, playing cards are assigned to each guest to show which table they are sitting at. I wonder who got the joker at each table?!
- A simple yet effective way of adding a little Vegas style to your table plan is to use poker chips and playing cards to accessorise your existing design. This example does just that very successfully.
Table names and numbers
Table names could include:
- Famous Vegas hotels: Bellagio, MGM Grand, Venetian, Excalibur, Mirage, Palazzo, Luxor, New York New York to name but a few!
- Famous casino games: For example, Baccarrat, wheel of fortune, poker, roulette or black jack;
- Iconic Vegas names and places: The Strip, burlesque, roulette, golden nugget, Golden Gate casino or the Hoover Dam;
- Various versions of poker: 5-card draw, 5-card stud, Texas hold’em, Ohama hold’em, Razz or pineapple.
- Famous James Bond films featuring casinos: Casino Royale, Moonraker and On Her Majesty’s Secret Service all have exciting card game scenes in them.
If you are using numbers rather than names, then these playing card themed table numbers would be perfect!
- If you have circular tables and a casino or gambling theme to your evening, then you can create a great effect by using plain black tablecloths and white or red napkins placed around the edge to create a poker chip effect! For example, these tables use white on black.
- Create your very own striking centrepiece using red and black cut out diamond, heart, club and jack shapes on a dice and feathers base.
- These personalised Las Vegas themed wine bottle labels are part of a large matching collection, ranging from note cards (which could be used as escort cards) to gift tags.
- Add some decks of cards, dice, pen and paper to your table, with instructions for simple games such as black jack or beetle drive.
- These gift wrapped King and Queen of diamonds coaster sets would make great themed favours.
- These black and white chocolate praline dice favours would be a great addition to your table décor.
