A secret agent in the making has asked for a spy-themed birthday party. Before you start freaking out, know that planning and pulling off the event may be easier than you think. The sleuth-in-training and the guests will appreciate a party that has party favours, food and activities with a spy twist.

Invitations with a spy theme will make friends and family aware of the theme, while creating excitement for the future party. Decorate the invitations with spy-themed stickers, construction paper cutouts or drawings. Images such as a magnifying glass, a fedora and fingerprints can adorn the invitation. On the inside of the invitation, welcome guests by referring to them as secret agents, requesting them to accept the secret mission (RSVP) and telling them the message will "self destruct."

Party Supplies

The party supplies for the spy-themed party should also sufficiently follow the theme. Because spies are often cloaked in mystery, decorations such as balloons, confetti, party hats, streamers, and napkins should be dark and black. A banner with the guest of honor's name can read: "Agent 09: Also Known As _." Guests will be pleased with spy party favours such as plastic magnifying glasses, pocket notebooks and fake eyeglasses with a built-in moustache.

Spy Party Games

Party guests can participate in a variety of spy-themed activities to be fully engaged at the party. The games can be called spy tests, where each guest will become a spy after completing them. For the "I Spy" game, one person secretly chooses an item in the room. The guests have to find the item using small clues, such as the colour or size of the item. The first person to find the item wins. The guests can also play a disguise game. Using a variety of cheap clothes, hats, face paint and sunglasses, guests have to create a disguise, with the best one being declared the winner.

Spy Food

A spy cake can be a round cake decorated as a bomb or magnifying lens, or a special cake containing a design featuring a favourite spy character. Guests will also enjoy eating a mystery snack mix that contains several candies, crackers and cookies. Health-conscious hosts can create a snack tray full of carrots, celery, cheese and vegetable dip. A good spy drink would be a clear drink (found in grocery stores) that looks like water but actually has flavour.
