James Bond Party Ideas
Bond. James Bond. He’s probably the most dashing, most mysterious and most appealing Secret Service Agent that we’ve seen on film and TV. Who isn’t familiar with this character? With his always-poised composure, high tech gadgets and excellent fighting stance, he leaves the men staring at him with envy and admiration, and makes the women swoon.
It isn’t uncommon today for adults to have a James Bond theme party, especially when they find black tie affairs too simple or too formal. By using a James Bond theme, they can make the party more fun, more dramatic and a lot more exciting. If you want to have a James Bond theme for your next event, here are several useful suggestions you can use.
- Instead of donning their usual black-tie and evening gown attire, tell your guests to come wearing their best Bond costume inspired by the film. Of course, all the men might eagerly come as James Bond, and the party will be filled with Bond look-alikes wearing tuxes. To avoid this, urge your guests to wear costumes inspired by other James Bond characters, including villains such as Blofeld, Dr. No or Goldfinger. As for the women, they can dress up as popular Bond girls, such as Octopussy, Honey Ryder, and Mary Goodnight, wearing their sexiest bikinis
or evening wear.
- If you’re rich enough, you could always park an Aston Martin inside your large venue, but if this is way beyond your budget, then you can settle for a simple casino theme instead. Set up roulette wheels, poker tables, and other casino games inside your venue, complete with cards and chips. Not only will these look like true Bond decorations, but they will also provide entertainment for your guests.
- Aside from your fancy casino entertainment, another way to set a good aura for your party is to play the right Bond music. Mix or burn a CD that contains all the popular Bond songs, including the main theme song. You can also set up a large TV screen where you can play clips of your favorite scenes from Bond movies.
- Although there’s nothing bad about serving full meals during your Bond party, elegant and delicious finger foods will suffice, such as shrimp, ham rolls with cheese, and crackers with toppings. Alcoholic drinks are also a must, such as champagne and vodka martinis (shaken, not stirred). Even so, make sure you still provide non-alcoholic beverages for your guests, such as soda.
For a mysterious but exciting aura for your evening party, try out these James Bond theme ideas. You and your guests will definitely have a fun and unforgettable time as you reminisce and remember the action-filled adventures of this popular and debonair secret agent.
A few friends hold a classy James Bond party.
