Why a James Bond Party?
The James Bond Party is undeniably the most popular theme for any casino event. While there are a million reasons why, my guess is that everyone has a fascination for our favorite MI-6 agent. Bond enchants us all, and why wouldn’t he? He’s rocking that devilish charm, good looks, savvy smarts and he is always the gallant knight. Men want to be like him, and women adore him. I think there’s a little ‘I want to be Bond fantasy,’ in all of us. That makes the ‘James Bond party theme’ perfect for everyone and any occasion. Here are 7 tips that will make your party – spy-on spectacular!
Get their attention
Your party invitation is the best way to set the mood and intrigue for your Bond event. Make your party invitation sophisticated, suave and edgy – like James. The just-right invite demands attention, so be sure to make it powerful by including a few 007 movies names, Bond clichés, or images of things James loved.
Need a little help with your top secret invite? No problem, because we’ve got a fine selection of 007 invitation designs that are to-die for perfect!
Create the aura
Besides the expected of creating a playlist of ‘Bond’ movie themes, maybe you could try something different? Consider hiring a professional violinist, or guitarist to play a cover melody of Bond music during your reception hour. Live string music during your event is an elegant, sophisticated touch that will create the aura of Bond.
On a tight budget? Then make a video-playlist of Bond music by different artists. Play the video-playlist on a big screen with the music piped in for surround sound. Watch this video of a talented artist named, Jun Sung Ahn for some 007 video-playlist inspiration!
Be Playful like James
James Bond loved to gamble. So be sure to add some casino games to your event, but what games should you add? Ok, so we know that baccarat and craps are notably his two favorite games; and in Casino Royale, (2006), James played high-stakes Texas Hold’em poker. So it’s a certainty, that both baccarat and craps are notably his games of choice. With good reason too, baccarat, (like James), is elegant, refined and sophisticated; and craps, (again, just like James), is exhilarating, and always keeps you on the edge of your seat!
So make your party Casino Royale worthy by choosing both baccarat and craps, and make it current by adding Texas Hold’em poker. It wouldn’t be a James Bond party without any of them!
The grand entrance
Brand the look of the event with a ‘007 Bond’ or a ‘Bond Girl’ standee, available exclusively by Elite Casino Events. This freestanding 7″ standee is easy to mount and display anywhere. It has a powerful impact on any entrance, and truly sets the mood for the 007 theme. We use these displays along the sidelines of the red carpet runway; sometimes with a spotlight on each image to highlight them.
In this collection by Elite Casino Events there are also 3 Aces as ‘Bond Girls.’ We also have the ‘Ace of Clubs’, ‘Ace of Spades’ and of course the ‘Ace of Hearts.’ James wouldn’t be Bond, unless he is surrounded by women, now would he? Rent 1 standee, or the entire collection of 4. Contact our office for rates.
Easy James Bond party decor
Create a bold statement piece. Use freestanding cardboard letters, or numbers, (any size), craft sticks, glue gun, spray paint and glitter. First glue the letters/numbers together, then glue the craft sticks between to reinforce and strengthen the design.
Next, paint and then glitter to make a freestanding ‘007’ or ‘BOND’ work of art! Both designs are inexpensive and easy to make – less then $10 each! You can find all of these craft items at a craft store near you!
Shaken, not stirred…
Here’s another affordable and easy idea! Buy oversized martini glasses, place a 3” LED light in the bottom of the glass, add colored glass gems and then top it off with a few extra-large red dice. Boom! – you’ve got a classy, yet affordable Bond décor centerpiece. I created this one for just under $30.00.
- 10” Martini Glass – Hobby Lobby $12.50
- 3” LED Light – Lowes $2.00
- Glass Gems – Hobby Lobby $2.99
- 2 Oversized red dice – Amazon $10.00
