007 Themed New Year's Eve

Ring in the New Year in style with these 007 party ideas! This New Year’s Eve theme will give your guests a chance to dress up in their most elegant evening wear and attend a sophisticated soiree.
Here are some James Bond party ideas to get you started:
  • Invitations: Pick a sleek and simple New Year's Eve invitation to inform guests about your James Bond themed party. It is important to choose one that will set the right mood. You can also give your event a fun name. For example, invite guests to partake in a “Secret Mission.” Address your guests as "agents" or tell them that the information they have received is strictly confidential and for their eyes only. Don’t forget the key details like the date, time, place, host/hostess, dress code, and RSVP info on your James Bond party invite.

  • Decorations: There are many different approaches you can take with James Bond party themes. One is to display old movie posters or set up a swanky bar scene. You could also take any of the destinations from the James Bond movies such as Dr. No’s Jamaica, Goldfinger’s Switzerland, or The Spy Who Loved Me’s Egypt and create these settings. Be creative and invite your guests into the dangerous and glamorous world of 007.
  • Food and Drink: Set out tasty tidbits for guests to snack on at your party. As for beverages, you will definitely need to serve James Bond’s signature drink—a martini, shaken not stirred. Since it is New Year’s, however, you should also prepare champagne for a toast at midnight. Include some non-alcoholic drinks in your menu as well so nobody is left out and your guests will get home safely.
  • Costumes: Your New Year party theme isn’t complete if you don’t dress the part at the 007 party! Slinky gowns for women and tuxes for men are standard, but encourage guests to come as specific characters from the movies. This includes notorious villains such as the bald man with the white cat from For Your Eyes Only, top-hatted Oddjob from Goldfinger, or metal-mouthed Jaws from Moonraker.
  • Activities: Set up a casino night and hand out fake money to your guests when they arrive. You can also put together spy-themed activities such as breaking a jumbled code or completing a scavenger hunt. Put a modern spin on a murder mystery party and have guests uncover clues and identify suspects throughout the night. Whoever correctly solves the mission will gain the coveted 007 status—a license to kill.
This New Year party theme will create a night to remember and is a great way to entertain guests. You are sure to start off the new year with a bang!
