Use playing cards as coasters.

Clean dice and freeze them into your ice cubes for your guests! Not all of the ice cubes need to have a die in it, after all...it's Vegas...it's the luck of the draw!

Have a playing card house building contest. Make sure to keep a time limit. Awards/prizes could be awarded for the highest, largest, most clever, longest standing and more creative.

Use poker chips gratuitously on tables as part of centerpieces.

Place five playing cards underneath every plate for dinner. When guests sit to eat, explain to them that a prize will be awarded to the winning hand using only the cards that they find underneath their plate.

As prizes for games, offer decks of cards, unique dice and lottery tickets.

These look REALLY great…but you'll need someone who has a very simple computer graphics program and the basic knowledge to use it. Download some nice photos from the Internet of Vegas (you should be overwhelmed by the selection you find on the Internet) and load them into the graphics program. You can do this by 'right clicking' with your mouse on any picture you like, then selecting 'Save As' among the options. Save these to a disk or your hard drive. Across the top (or in any other place, depending on how creative you want to get with it…) put the words of the location (i.e. The Strip, the Bellagio Hotel, etc.) Then, in one of the corners put a large number…essentially, you are making a large stamp. Once you have the image the way you want it, print it out and decorate cut the edges all around in the fashion of a large stamp (fiskar scissors do a great job.) These look great just about anywhere. HINT: These can be done in assembly-line fashion and can be cranked out relatively fast once you get into the 'groove' of it.

Name your location. Invite your guests to one of your favorite hotels (or create one of your own), etc. By naming it and referring to that name you'll create a definite place and time for your guests. It's amazing the credibility that is given when it is given a name.

Vegas is now known for their commercials "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas." Do your own version of the slogan for your event in your invitations and decorations. "What happens at Casino Night, stays at Casino Night", etc.

The Vegas strip is all about lights! Dig out those white Christmas lights from the garage (or borrow some from friends and neighbors) and lines the path leading to the door of the event with them. They look great and give the glitz of Vegas feel before your guests even come in to the party. If you have enough strands of the lights, these also look great outlining any signs that you had made for the party (indoors and outdoors)

In the background, play music from the original Rat Pack (Frank Sinatra, etc.) It will bring back the 'old' days of Vegas that many of your guests will remember!

Vegas is also known for its amazing talent bookings at the different hotels and casinos. Showcase your own talent pool by organizing a talent show! Encourage all kinds of acts (from the silly to the serious) for maximum participation. If you want to take very seriously (for larger groups) you can even hold a competition, awarding different prizes for different categories. An absolute MUST, though, is restricting the acts to a specific time frame. Four minutes typically is best for a talent show that moves and gets quality material (acts will work hard to condense their talents to those four minutes, ensuring that there aren't any acts that go on and on when the crowd is waiting for the hook to come out!)

Visit online vendors for Vegas postcards that can be ordered. These make GREAT party invitations. There is a huge variety of postcards to choose from (from every hotel) - have fun perusing them to see which is the most appropriate for the party you are planning!

Make giant poker chips out of hula hoops! Take standard sized hula hoops and use them as a stencil to trace out the shape of a poker chip. You might need to tape two sheets of white banner paper together to get a sheet wide enough for the hoop. Once the image is drawn (do a search for IMAGES on Yahoo for poker chips for different designs), color it and cut it out. If you have enough hula hoops, you can tape the poker chip image to the hula hoop and lean them up against the walls at different places for decorations. Otherwise, you can simply tape giant poker chip images to the walls for the same effect
