When you are planning your next holiday party or event, why not try a unique strategy by incorporating the 5 senses (sight, sound, smell, taste and touch) to plan a party people actually want to attend.

Live! Casino & Hotel is the perfect place to excite your senses.

Sight – You need a beautiful looking space. Between the warmth and elegance of the patio at The Prime Rib Restaurant, the fun and energetic feel of Center Stage and the luxurious and spacious Event Center, Live! features a variety of function space to meet and exceed your event vision.

Sound – It’s easy to incorporate high-def projection screens, concert-style lighting and sound into your party vision for decor. A DJ or band can get the party-goers moving or set up a Karaoke booth for some real entertainment.

Smell – Whether it’s the smell of fresh brewed coffee, a roast beef carving station or diffusing holiday aromas, you want your guests to be enticed by what’s to come at your holiday soirée.

Taste – And since their mouth will be watering at the smell of wafting aromas, it is time to tantalize their taste buds. Focus on one theme or mix it up – fun buffet stations incorporate tastes from around the world and are sure to please all taste buds. From carving stations to luxurious spins on comfort food and Pan-Asian delights, the ideas are limitless. Enhance your bar service with a specialty themed cocktail or delicious hot chocolate station, complete with traditional toppings and favorite liquors.

Touch – Handshakes or hugs are a given but how about special touches to take your event to the next level and provide your guests a memorable experience. Hire a Tarot Card Reader or Fortune Teller to look at the year ahead, or a bounce house to make your guests feel like a kid again. You could also add an activity that would benefit a local Charity, such as Build-A Bear to stuff a bear to be donated Kids Charity or Hospital.

It may feel overwhelming at first, but once you cover all of the 5 senses, your holiday party is sure to be a success. Event Planners at Live Casino & Hotel are full of great ideas that will make your party unforgettable – they will help you pick the perfect location, menu and mood. And the night does not need to be over when the event concludes. Your guests can enjoy the Casino floor and dance the night away with Live’s complimentary nightly entertainment.
