If you and your guests are creative, you can easily achieve the aura of wealth, adventure and the high-life without the budget of Her Majesty's Secret Service.

To avoid everyone arriving as Sean Connery or a generic Bond Girl, include a list of some of the iconic characters and outfits from the series on your invitation. Men can study the fine, and not-so-fine, differences between Bonds from Roger Moore to Daniel Craig, or dress up like Blofeld with a bald cap and a fake scar. Women can take costume inspiration Ursula Andress in "Dr. No" (the belted bikini also seen on Halle Berry) or Honor Blackman in "Goldfinger" (gold vest and black trousers), or come as Moneypenny or the villain Rosa Klebb from "From Russia with Love," in military or nurse attire. To inspire maximum creativity, offer a prize for best male and female costume, such as a James Bond toy or game or a sleek cocktail shaker.
Besides the casino entertainment, you could play Bond-related games, such as the James Bond edition of monopoly or the Scene It DVD movie trivia game.You will, of course, want to serve cocktails and/or mocktails, including the all-important Bond martini (shaken, not stirred). Finally, great music is in easy supply for a Bond-themed party. From Paul McCartney & Wings' "Live and Let Die" to Shirley Bassey's "Goldfinger," the theme music is an integral part of the Bond experience. Plenty of compilations are available, including instrumental versions for more of a background effect.
