Serve food that is true to the theme like baked beans, cornbread muffins, apple pie moonshine cocktails, and sarsaparilla floats.

As they mingle and play cards throughout the night, have a few team challenges lined up such as quick draw contests or lasso throwing competitions for extra excitement.

Under the Sea Theme

Bring your friends along on an underwater adventure and transport them to a magical sea world with an Under the Sea Theme!

Create a space that's full of blue, green, and aqua colors for decorations. 

Hang fish-shaped lanterns from the ceiling that are filled with flickering white tea lights. Place seashells and glittering starfish around the Kestell poker table as centerpieces. 

Set out tropical drinks served in shells or hollowed-out coconuts to make it feel like you're underwater!

Pirate-Themed Game Night

Ahoy, mateys! 

Get ready to set sail for a pirate-themed game night that'll be sure to bring your guests plenty of swashbuckling fun.

Transform your space into a Caribbean paradise: deck the walls with pirate flags and anchors, hang treasure maps around the room, and light candles in a few machetes for an authentic feel.

Serve up rum punch in old jars or barrels - filled with plastic treasure chests for guests to take home casino nights party loot!

Now let's set sail for the Speakeasy Theme...

Speakeasy Theme

Take your guests back in time to the roaring twenties with a Speakeasy theme! 

Whether you want to transport them to 1920s Prohibition-era America or recreate the glamour and sophistication of present-day underground lounges, a Speakeasy theme is sure to make for an interesting poker night.

Start by dressing up the venue with vintage decorations, such as art deco furnishings, dark wood décor, and crystal chandeliers. 

You can even set up a fake 'door' that requires a special password for entry. 

A jazz band playing soft tunes from the era will help create an authentic speakeasy atmosphere. 

To add some extra fun, ask your guests to come dressed in their best flapper gear!

Set out finger foods and drinks reminiscent of Prohibition days – think whiskey sours and gin martinis served in teacups – but don't forget modern snacks like craft beer and artisanal cheese plates. 

The game table should be kept low-key; just use traditional wooden chairs and tables like the Hathaway poker table that evoke the spirit of the era without overshadowing it.

As cards are dealt out on this classic setup, let nostalgia take over: encourage conversation about political issues of the time or share stories about legendary gangsters like Al Capone or Machine Gun Kelly. 

With its combination of traditional elegance and fascinating history lessons, a Speakeasy poker night will be an unforgettable experience for all involved.

And speaking of unforgettable experiences… it's time to transition into Hollywood Glamour Theme!

Hollywood Glamour Theme

We've already discussed one of the most popular and immersive poker table themes, the speakeasy. 

Now, let's look at another classic Hollywood-style theme: Glamour!

For this theme, you'll want to evoke a feeling of Old Hollywood glamour that takes your guests back to a time when stars were larger than life. 

The best way to do this is by creating an ambiance full of lush fabrics, sparkling chandeliers and plenty of glitzy décor.

To set the scene, choose classic black and white for your color palette with hints of gold throughout. 

Drape velvet curtains around your table or add a few sequin pillows for extra sparkle. 

You can also hang vintage movie posters on the walls as accents or use them as part of your game night decorations.

To really go all out for this theme, consider buying some glamorous furniture like the Kestell Oak Folding Poker Chair Set with fur throws or tufted ottomans. 

Of course, no Hollywood Glamor-themed game night would be complete without signature cocktails! 

Serve up drinks like champagne cocktails or martinis to keep everyone in high spirits while they play their favorite card games!

From luxurious decor to signature drinks - a Hollywood Glamor themed poker night is sure to delight players and create memories that will last long after the final hand has been dealt.

Ready for something new? 

Let's take it up a notch with our next theme: Vintage Nautical!

Vintage Nautical Theme

For a vintage nautical theme, you'll want to bring the feel of an old-timey seaside adventure into your game night. 

Start with a stylishly decorated poker table that will really capture the spirit of a classic ship's cabin—think dark woods and brass accents for the perfect maritime atmosphere. 

Add in some carefully selected decor pieces like nautical flags, model ships, and maps of the seven seas to bring out even more of the seafaring aesthetic. 

If you're feeling extra adventurous, hang up some fishing nets or add in a few portholes for an extra authentic touch!

To complete your vintage nautical theme, be sure to dress accordingly! 

Get creative with sailor hats, striped tops or pants, and plenty of anchor-themed jewelry. 

For added fun, have guests come dressed as their favorite pirates or sailors from movies or literature. 

You can also provide props to really get everyone into character—think telescopes and cutlasses for some swashbuckling roleplay!

Finally, set up snacks that fit with your theme: think salty popcorn seasoned with fish sauce or chips served in mini treasure chests.
