How to organise a luxury bingo night with friends
Looking for something fun to do with friends? Then why not organise a luxury bingo night at yours?
Bingo’s a game that everyone can get on board with. It’s fun, it’s simple and it’s a good excuse to get together with your nearest and dearest. While it may not traditionally be associated with luxury – that doesn’t mean you can’t create an extravagant event for you and your guests!
Here are some tips on creating a luxury bingo night that everyone will enjoy.
Set the game up
First things first, you need to get to grips with the rules. While it’s a fairly simple game, don’t assume everyone will know how to play – there may be people in your friendship group who have never played bingo before.
You could either send around the rules in advance or explain how to play when guests arrive at your house. It’s up to you!
Then, consider how you’re going to organise the game. A great option is to get everyone to download a bingo app and use a multiplayer feature. That way, you can all play through your smartphone without worrying about providing paper and pens for everyone.
Organise food and drinks
Next up, decide the type of food and drink you want to serve during the evening. There are lots of options here, so think about what would appeal most to your friends!
For example, you could serve a variety of cocktails like mojitos, espresso martinis and Aperol spritz’. Pair them with canapés that people can tuck into during play, such as mini tartlets, smoked salmon blinis, dips and crudités.
If this isn’t your thing, you could have a sophisticated wine and cheese night. Buy in some great quality wines along with an assortment of cheeses, such as brie, stilton, Roquefort, gouda and so on. Then, build some boards with biscuits and crackers, crusty bread, fruit, chutneys and butter. It’s sure to hit the spot!
Set a dress code
What says luxury more than a smart dress code? Set the theme for the evening by inviting your friends to dress to impress. Perhaps you could choose attire that would be worn at a smart casino night, such as dresses, suits and ties.
Alternatively, you could opt for a themed evening. This could be black or white tie, the glitz of the 1920s, Hollywood glamour or a masquerade ball. Once you’ve decided on your dress code, communicate this to everyone in advance so they have plenty of time to plan their outfits.
Hopefully, this will help you to plan a memorable and enjoyable bingo night for you and your friends!
