My dad kept saying he wasn’t that bothered about whether he had a celebration or not, but seeing as I am a party fan, he didn’t have a whole lot of choice in the matter.
I spent some time considering lots of different party theme ideas, and then it hit me…..”The name’s Bond….James Bond“. My dad would LOVE a James Bond theme party, and I was right.
From the moment I mentioned the party theme to him, to actually holding the party, he had that school boy cheeky grin all over his face. I knew I was onto a winner with this one.
We decided to turn his house into a casino and so the planning of the James Bond theme party began.
James Bond Party Invitations:
I have said it before, but invitations are so incredibly important for setting the scene. If you want people to get excited and attend your party, you have to give them an incentive to do so.
We decided to purchase the invitations, and found these Bond theme invites which we could tailor to suit our needs. They were absolutely perfect.
James Bond Party Decorations:
Dad didn’t have a clue about anything that was being organised for the party. He set me a party budget and let me get on with it. This meant I was totally in my element and left to my own devices with the party decoration.
I purchased many of the decorations online which made everything very easy. The decorations were delivered direct to my home and I was able to shop from home knowing I wasn’t going over my budget!
We decided upon a formal affair and asked everyone to dress in James Bond outfits or as their favorite villain. I wanted the dominant colors to be black and white.
All the surfaces in the house were covered with black table cloths, and we covered the ceiling with black and silvery white helium balloons. The ceiling looked amazing and everyone commented at just how stunning it was.
The walls were lined with various Posters from James Bond films and finished off with casino backdrops.
As a gift for my dad’s birthday I gave him a photo book with photos included from his birth to present day. It was also filled with messages from close friends and family, many of whom are overseas. I gave the book to him immediately before the party started and it was displayed for everyone to view.
Party Food Ideas:
I’m a party organiser but not a baker, so thankfully mum did an outstanding job of the catering. She kept it simple with finger foods consisting of sausage rolls, mini quiche, cheese pie, salads and various cakes and cookies.
This helped to keep the budget down and then splashed out on having a chocolate mud 60th birthday cake made. All the food was served on black plates and the entire serving area was sprinkled with casino scatters.
All drinks were served in martini glasses (regardless of what the drink consisted of). Martini’s were of course served too.
James Bond Theme Party Activities:
Everyone was told that there was a prize at the end of the party for the person with the most chips. This created a friendly level of competition and everyone really got into the swing of things.
Everyone was crowded around the tables for the entire party, desperate to get as many casino chips as possible to win that prize!
We gave two prizes, a bottle of champagne to the winner and a miniature bottle of vodka to the person with the least (or zero) chips!
Finally, this is me with my dad. He had an absolute ball and I know that this was the perfect party theme for him.
