007 BOND PARTY

Suits and slinky dresses are the classic costume choice for this theme, or you could up the ante and don Sean Connery’s terry cloth onesie from Goldfinger. Either way, any Bond (James Bond) shindig is bound to be a classy affair. Martinis (you know how he likes them), canapes, cigars, poker games, evil villains stroking white bunnies; surprisingly little is needed to create an atmosphere of spy splendour. So straighten up your tie, collect your party gadgets from Q, and utilise your license to thrill at your next 007 Soiree.

007 BOND PARTY

Party Theme Ideas and Planning Tips:

SUITABLE FOR:

Housewarming, 21st, 30th, 40th.

PARTY FOOD IDEAS:

Fancy finger food such as these chic cucumber sandwiches from awesome food blog Belly Rumbles, or these savoury cranberry twists will set the food mood.

DRINK & COCKTAIL IDEAS:

Vesper Martinis (shaken not stirred obviously) and bubbly champagne.

PARTY DECORATIONS:

Even though he gets down and dirty, Bond is a class act. Keep it elegant and sophisticated, perhaps even with a touch of casino thrown in. Roulette tables, playing cards and stemmed glasses will add the 007 drama (and danger). Why not include a James Bond photo stand so everyone can pop the fabled pose?

COSTUME IDEAS:

You have 26 movies and 12 books to draw inspiration from! The easiest option is a suit and bow tie for the guys and something slinky for the gals. Or you can cover yourself, head to toe, in gold paint. Either way you’ll look good!

PARTY PLAYLIST:

The James Bond opening titles are usually always accompanied by sultry songs. Try out Tina Turner’s Goldeneye, Duran Duran’s A View to a Kill, Adele’s Skyfall, or Sam Smith’s The Writing’s On The Wall. Catherine from Smart Party Planning has got you covered with an in depth run-down of how to throw a James Bond Theme Party in style!
