Although black-tie affairs are losing their popularity, most people are still up for strutting their stuff as James Bond. Throw a James Bond-themed party--everyone knows James Bond and will enjoy playing the bad-boy hero. Just make sure the drinks are shaken, not stirred.
Ask guests to dress to fit the James Bond theme. The most obvious choice for costumes is the tuxedo--the ultimate James Bond look. However, there are many other great options. If you want something other than a room full of penguin suits, offer some other suggestions to your guests. Some ideas include: Dr. No, Q, M and Moneypenny as well as James Bond in other gear, such as scuba or parachute.
A James Bond-themed party is a great opportunity to mix good times and cool decor. Pay homage to the iconic spy movies with Aston Martin cutouts, a roulette table, posters from the movies and giant playing cards. If you are looking for something a little less obvious, recreate a specific scene from a movie, like Fort Knox's room full of gold bars or Blofeld's volcanic lair. Use your imagination--your choices are limitless.
You cannot have a James Bond-themed party without vodka martinis - shaken not stirred. Champagne is also a necessity. If you're on a tight budget, serve sparking wine--most people won't notice the difference. For an alcohol-free party, serve sparkling cider in champagne flutes and any clear beverage in martini glasses.
