If you're hosting a casino night, renting gaming tables and equipment that turn a room in your home into a temporary casino can make for a fun and memorable evening for you and your guests. One of the first things that you'll need to consider is where you'll set everything up, but having a small home may limit your options. It could be worthwhile to think about hosting the event outdoors if you have room in your yard. An outdoor casino night can be a lot of fun, and keeping these tips in mind will help to ensure the success of the event.

Rent A Tent

You need to give some thought to the risk of bad weather on the day of your casino night. Rented casino equipment and rain don't mix, and you don't want a downpour to put a premature end to your event — and likely leave you with a damage bill, too. If you don't have any covered space in your backyard, consider renting a small tent. Doing so doesn't present a major expense, and it can provide the shelter to ensure the event doesn't get interrupted. You can also decorate the tent however you want to add to the atmosphere.

Remember The Importance Of Lighting

If you're having the casino party in the evening, you'll need to think about lighting. Casinos are typically brightly lit places, so you'll want to ensure that the interior of the tent is fairly light. This isn't just about the atmosphere — your attendees will need enough light so that they can clearly see their playing cards, the numbers on the dice that they're using, and the other players. Renting some lights and placing them around the tent will help to thoroughly brighten the space.

Consider Your Neighbors

A casino night is exciting for the players, which means that the environment can get a little boisterous. Be considerate of how much noise your group is making. Holding the event on a Friday or Saturday night will likely give you more leeway to be moderately noisy in the evening. However, you still don't want to go too late and risk upsetting your neighbors. Plan to start your event early so that you can wrap up early, or remind people at a certain hour that they'll need to lower their voices a little as they play. If have background music playing for your guests, ensure that it remains at a reasonable volume.
