Who wouldn’t want to be like 007? James Bond is one of the coolest fictional characters of all time. He gets to play with high-tech gadgets, travel around the world (in one of The Four Most Iconic Movie Cars of All-Time), and attend the swankiest parties. This guide on how to host a James Bond-themed party will ensure everyone leaves feeling as suave as an international spy.
James Bond is notorious for always having a drink in his hand. So, every James Bond-themed party needs to have classy cocktails at the ready. Hire a bartender for your event so guests can drink the best martinis possible. Provide the bartender with the appropriate barware equipment so they’re prepared to make any mixed drink that people want. Also, make sure people only use elegant glassware to keep up the sophisticated feel.
Dress the Part
James Bond wouldn’t be caught dead in a t-shirt and jeans. Inform your guests that you expect them to dress the part if they’re going to attend your themed party. It would be strange if people showed up wearing Hawaiian shirts and shorts. Instead, make it known that you want people to look like international spies. Ask your guests to wear suits or beautiful evening gowns. If people are dressed appropriately, it’ll really feel like you’re all international spies.
Play the Movies and Soundtrack in the Background
It wouldn’t be a real James Bond party if you didn’t watch the movies. Play the different James Bond films and soundtracks in the background of your party. You don’t need to sit down and watch them in their entirety. Leave them on quietly in the background so people can stop and watch whenever they see fit. Guests can discuss their favorite scenes and characters. Be careful, though—a lively debate might break out.
Follow these steps if you’re wondering how to host a James Bond-themed party. People will love having the opportunity to dress up and pretend like they’re the most interesting person in the room. Don’t forget to make your plans to see the newest James Bond film that hits theatres in 2020.
