Casino Party Testimonial

"Many thanks to you and your lovely wife Eva for a FANTASTIC Casino Party!
I've planned many social events but thanks to you, this was the best ever. Lots of comments from my neighbors, "we were having so much fun, we didn't want to quit, please book them again next year!"

Black and white parties shouldn’t be mediocre, and one of the best ways to throw a fabulous party is to select a great theme.

Look for a theme that is not only budget-friendly but also that is also fun at the same time.

Here are some theme ideas:

Casino Theme

The casino theme is an excellent one for a black and white party. The men can dress in black or white tuxedos while the women can wear black or white formal dresses.

Decorate individual tables with white glittery linens and on top of the tables place black decorative boxes filled with casino game pieces. You can even rent casino tables to add to the entertainment.

Everyone can wear black and white masks for a sexy masquerade appeal to the casino themed party.

Michael Jackson Tribute

In light of the 35th anniversary of Michael Jackson’s Thriller album, hold a Michael Jackson tribute party. The guests can wear black or white T-shirts that pertain to Michael Jackson or the Thriller album.

Of course you would play his most popular songs and you can have a dance contest to see which person does the best Michael Jackson moves.

Disco Night

Another cool idea would be to host a disco night with a black and white theme. The guests can dress up in black and white outfits inspired by the disco era and you can place a black and white disco ball at the top of the wall.


On Sunday, October 23, Funtastic Events managed a Customer Appreciation Event that took place in the form of a Blackjack

There was spirited competition and the players came from all over the US, Puerto Rico and Brazil.

The participants exhibited various skill levels, with some beginners at the table, as well as a few advanced players.

There were two rounds of competition, eliminating the weaker players in the first round.

While luck was involved, the stronger Blackjack players were represented at the final table.

The final round of Blackjack left three players remaining, any of which could win the tournament. 

Players helped each other out, offering free advice and strategy.

In a close match, Mark won the Blackjack Tournament and was planning on driving the Range Rover home to Connecticut.

Congratulations Mark!


Some of us wait for this day with excitement and others with a sense of trepidation, but no matter what you feel there is no getting away from the big 50th night birthday party

You may as well enjoy the best celebration ever and enjoy the time with your friends and family.

There are so many options for a 50th birthday party and if you are planning it for somebody else you may want to look at a few different ideas.

To surprise or not to surprise?

Planning a surprise party for someone can be tricky at times.

There are people who love surprises and others would not be so happy about it. When throwing a surprise party make sure guests are kept up with the party plans.

Activities are important

Let’s take a look at some activities to keep the fun going. 

Hiring a DJ

DJ’s can bring a party to life with music and by acting as an MC for other activities. A professional DJ could organize something along the lines of a Game Show for everybody to participate in.50th Birthday Party Ideas

Bring A Casino To The Party

One of the best interactive party themes would have to be a casino party. All the guest can feel the glitz and glamour of being at a real casino and can gamble and vie for prizes. Set it up with tables with different games and give everybody chips when they arrive. 

Caricature Portraits

Guests will have a lasting memory to keep if you have a caricature artist at your event. Imagine everybody taking home a cartoon portrait of themselves! 

The Perfect Cake

A creative and personalized cake like something that you see on The Cake Boss will be perfect for a memorable 50th party.

Traditional birthday cakes are usually full of candles and elaborately decorated, go for something a little different to make it special.

Have fun and enjoy planning a 50th birthday party.
