If you’d like to recreate this party yourself, you’ll find everything we used in our range of James Bond party supplies. Read on for inspiration!
Setting up your James Bond party
First things first is party decorations! The beauty of a James Bond party theme is that you don’t need many decorations to make it obvious what the theme – just choose the ones that are the most striking and the most obviously James Bond themed.
We love the idea of laying your table with a blackjack tablecover like this – it’ll instantly set the scene of a casino and make your guests feel like they’ve stepped into Casino Royale! You could even scatter the table with a pack of casino chips like this to make it look like you’re in the middle of a game of blackjack!
Next up in our James Bond party ideas are some even more simple and striking party decorations – 007 balloons that instantly scream ‘Bond!’
Use them to create a striking backdrop featuring James Bonds’ legendary agent number – perfect as a focal point for your buffet table or striking decorations to place around the room.
James Bond party food ideas
Martinis (shaken, not stirred)
As far what party food and drink to serve at a James Bond party, martinis are a must! They must be shaken not stirred (although this isn’t the traditional way to serve them) and if there are non-drinkers or designated drivers at your party, you could still stick to the martini theme by filling plastic martini glasses like these with silver and gold chocolates. Remember, your James Bond party should be glamorous at all times!
Keep your food chic and sophisticated with lots of mini canapés – anything fancy that you’d expect to find at a swanky James Bond casino! Stick to finger food and serve your canapés on mini canapé dishes like these to make them easy to serve.
How to make the perfect James Bond martini
According to the Telegraph, the perfect James Bond martini is three measures of Gordon’s, one measure of vodka and half a measure of Kina Lillet. Then you shake it very well until it’s ice-cold, and add a slice of lemon.
This drink isn’t to everyone’s taste so if you’d prefer, you could serve mocktails or fill your martini glasses with gold and silver foil-wrapped chocolates to add a touch of glamour to the proceedings. It’s your party so it’s up to you!
James Bond party games
It wouldn’t be right to finish our James Bond party ideas without some themed party games to keep your guests entertained! Here are our suggestions for the best games for a James Bond party theme.
James Bond charades
Charades is a timeless classic so why not put a James Bond spin on it for your 007 themed party? Put the names of all the James Bond films in a hat and let your guests guess which one you’re acting out!
Name the Bond theme
Or how about a James Bond music quiz? Play a 20 second clip of each Bond theme tune (or the first few seconds of it) and let your guests guess the name of the song and who sang it!
Who am I?
Finally, why not put a James Bond spin on the classic post-it note game ‘who am I’? Write the name of a James Bond character on a post-it note, stick it on someone’s forehead and then let them ask questions to help them guess who it is!
