Create the Ambience

A playlist that includes famous Bond movie themes is always there in a James Bond themed party, so why don’t you consider something different? Hire a professional guitarist or violinist to play melodies of Bond music when guests arrive at your event. Live music during your casino party will give an elegant and sophisticated touch to your party, making it different from all mainstream casino parties.

If you don’t have the budget to hire professionals to play at your event, create a video-playlist featuring bond music played by various artists. Start playing the video-playlist on a screen when guests enter. Play the playlist throughout the event to keep the guests entertained.

Capture the Attention of Your Guests

You must capture the attention of your guests before your casino party to make sure more and more people attend your event. You can grab the attention of your guests by a compelling party invitation that sets the mood for your James Bond themed party. Design your party invitation like Bond — edgy, sophisticated and compelling. Make the invitation powerful by including Bond quotes or names of 007 movies.

The party invitation designed according to the James Bond theme will spark the interest of your guests and they’ll be tempted to attend your event.

Work on the Entrance

When the guests enter your event, they should feel like they’re coming to a real James Bond party. Therefore, you should work on the entrance of your event and make it more Bond-like. Get some 007 Bond posters and place them on the walls of the entrance.  Also, get a 007 Bond standee and mount it on the side. Design a red carpet runway and spotlight the standee to highlight it.

This will create a powerful entrance and set the mood for your James Bond casino party. When guests will walk through the entrance, they’ll now that they’re in for an amazing evening.

Playful Casino Games

If you have watched James Bond movies, you will know that if there was anything Bond loved more than Vesper Lynd, it was gambling. So, make sure to include casino games in your James Bond themed casino party. But, should you include all the popular casino games like Roulette and Blackjack? Not really.

Bond’s favorite casino games are Craps and Baccarat and he also played Texas Hold’em poker in ‘Casino Royale (2006)’. So, both Craps and Baccarat are a must for your James Bond casino party. Baccarat is sophisticated like Bond is while Craps is exhilarating. Both these games will keep your guests at the edge of their seats and provide them a real Las Vegas experience.

You can also include Texas Hold’em poker and hire professional dealers to make sure all your guests are aware of the rules of the games and the games flow smoothly. However, if you’re on tight budget and can’t afford to hire professional dealers, ask some of your friends who are experienced gamblers to play the role of a dealer. They would love to volunteer for the role of a dealer and will help keep your guests entertained throughout the evening.

James Bond Themed Décor

One of the most important aspects of a James Bond themed casino party is the décor and you can never afford to go wrong with that. To decorate your James Bond casino party, use cardboard numbers or letters, spray paint, glitter, craft sticks and glue gun. First, join the numbers and letters together with glue and then join the craft sticks to strengthen and reinforce the design. After that, paint and glitter to create freestanding ‘007 BOND’ and ‘007’ art pieces.

All the items required to make the designs can be easily found and these designs can be created at a low price.

Another idea is to use oversized martini glasses. In the bottom of the Martini glass, place a LED light, add glass gems of different colors and put two extra-large dice at the top. Great! You’ve managed to create a classy Bond décor to add more 007 touch to your casino party.

Bond Cards

Get some free-standing Bond and Bond girl cards to make the theme of your James Bond casino party more sophisticated. You can mount these cards to a form board to increase the décor of your party and make it more James like. These cards will be the real eye-catchers for your James Bond themed casino party.


For a James Bond themed party, you’ll need to ask your guests to dress to fit the Bond theme. This will give your party that special secret spy atmosphere. Of course, the obvious choice is the classic 007 look, but just because it is a James Bond themed party doesn’t mean that everyone has to dress like James. Provide some examples of characters from the 007 movies to your guests to make sure not everyone is dressed like Bond. Q, Moneypenny and M are great examples. And we have also met several villains over the years, including Dr No in his grey suit, so your guests have a lot of options to choose from.

James Bond Menu

The menu of the James Bond themed casino party is really up to you. Either choose an elegant buffet or a full-course dinner or settle for serving munchies to your guests throughout the evening, with dessert and coffee at the end of the event. If you decide to serve a sit-down dinner, make sure to have some seating cards. For the table, choose white linen topped with squats of black or red to create a handsome room. Sprinkle tables with chocolate coins wrapped in a foil to add an extra classy touch.

Your James Bond themed casino party won’t be complete without drinks, so don’t forget to add lots of drinks. Serve vodka martinis –shaken not stirred– and champagne. With the drinks flowing and the gambling continuously going on, you can bet all your guests will have a great time. If you want to add some extra sizzle to your James Bond themed casino party, hire show girls from modeling agencies to serve champagne and walk around the casino game tables.

Check Everything

Once you have planned out every single detail of your James Bond themed casino party, check everything to make sure you are all set for the big day. Check the décor, the menu, the casino games you have planned and make sure invitations have reached everyone in time. Stay prepared to handle any issue on the day of your event and make sure you have a backup plan in case anything goes wrong.

These are all the important things that you need to focus on to plan the perfect James Bond casino party for your guests. Do you think you have what it takes to pull off an epic James Bond themed casino party? If you find that you cannot plan every single detail of a James Bond themed party such as the decorations, menu and casino games, hire professional casino party planners to take the burden off your shoulders.

This entry was posted in Casino Birthday Parties on by .

The milestone birthday of your loved one is near and you have begun to plan a surprise for him/her. There are several ideas in your mind, but they’re all too common and you wish to get out of the mainstream and plan something different that will truly surprise your loved one! What could surprise him/her?

Think! Think! Nothing comes to mind? How about we help you? We guarantee that you’ll thank us later when you see the smile and happiness on the face of your loved one. We recommend you surprise your loved one with a casino themed birthday party!

Casino Themed Birthday Party

Casino themed birthday party brings the Las Vegas experience to the birthday party and creates the ambience of a real casino. The guests can play casino games like Roulette, Black Jack, Money Wheel, Texas Hold’em poker, etc. without losing a single penny since funny money is used in the casino night birthday parties, which can later be exchanged for gifts.

Casino birthday party can be customized according to your preference and style and you can decide the theme/décor, the food to be served, the games that you want to include in the party and the gifts that you want to present to your loved one and guests.

There really isn’t anything like a casino themed birthday party and if you really wish to surprise your loved one and make his/her milestone birthday the most memorable one ever, then we suggest you plan a casino night birthday party for him/her. The question is how do you plan an epic casino night birthday party that truly offers the most memorable experience to your loved one? In this post, we’ll provide some essential tips that will help you throw in the perfect casino themed party birthday for your loved one.

Theme of the Event

The first thing you need to decide is the theme of your event. There are two options to choose from; you can either go with a fun theme or a classic night. Both are great and have several benefits, but obviously the decision depends on your personal style and preference.

Once you have decided the theme, search for rental locations that will best suit your theme. Older buildings more suitable for a fun theme while modern restaurants and clubs are ideal for a classic theme.  If you’re catering through the venue, make sure there is no rental fee. If you decide to arrange catering from outside, then get your rental rate settled with all the details that the venue is providing such as cake cutting, cutlery, decorations, candles or valet services. Also, make sure that the space you are renting is not a common area and is exclusive to you for your event. Many bars rent out a space and still utilize the area for their business. You cannot afford to have your birthday party ruined by strange people at the venue, therefore don’t settle for a place that will be shared by others during your party.


With a casino night birthday party, you can create a real life Las Vegas experience that will make your loved ones and guests feel like they’re in a real casino. It is simple to decorate your birthday party for a casino theme, be it classic or vintage. Go with a hurricane candle setting for a classic theme by adding casino dice, chips and cards to the tables. Hurricanes, vases or other items may be available at the venue and you can use them to decorate the place without spending extra money.

Hire a Photographer

You can’t miss out on capturing the moments at your loved one’s milestone birthday party. You must hire a photographer to record the moments at the epic casino themed birthday party. Most photographers will charge a normal event rate for a casino themed birthday party and you’ll get hundreds of images that you can share with your guests. Everything will happen so quickly and the time will pass by, but those photos will treasure the memories that you can enjoy forever.

The Cake!

Have a cake designed by a bakery to highlight the theme of the casino birthday party. The cake should match the overall theme and décor of your event so make sure you deal with professional bakers who can guarantee the perfect design of the cake. You should also add some casino theme cookies and candies to the decorations. You can get casino themed treats online as there are several websites offering them at an affordable price.


When it comes to casino themed birthday party, you cannot afford to go wrong with the casino games. If the casino games are too complicated, your guests won’t be able to play them and they’ll lose all their time in learning the rules of the game rather than actually playing. So choose the casino games that are simple and fun. We recommend you go with the classic games such as Blackjack, Roulette and Poker.

These games are not only simple but are also easy to set up and the equipment required to play them is not too expensive. If you plan to include poker at the casino themed birthday party, then give out poker hand ranking charts to your guests so that the newbies can understand how poker actually works.

If you have the budget, you should also consider hiring professional dealers who can run the tables for the casino night birthday party. Professional dealers not only run the game, but also make sure that everyone is entertained. Having a professional dealer can provide the most realistic Las Vegas experience. Check the internet to search for dealers and compare the rates.

If you are short on budget and cannot afford real dealers, then get some of your friends who are well versed in the rules of casino games to play the role of dealers and make sure everyone understands the rules of casino games.

Food and Drinks

Refreshments are an important part of a casino themed birthday party. Since your guests will be engaged in tables as well as mingling, we suggest you go with finger foods. Set up a table with various Hors d’oeuvres so that your guests can grab and go. As for the drink, it depends on whether you want to serve alcoholic beverages or not. Wine and beer are budget-friendly and good for a self-serve bar. But, if you want to serve liquor, make sure to have a bartender who can serve the drinks.

Know your Budget

If you’re going to throw an epic casino night birthday party for your loved one, it is going to cost you some money. Renting venue, catering, hiring dealer, buying food and drinks, renting equipment for games, decorating the venue — it all adds up. You must decide your budget early on and then plan accordingly to ensure that your event is a success.

The tips that we have highlighted above can help you plan an epic casino birthday party for your loved one that will surprise them and provide them the most memorable experience of their life. We know you are thinking that this is a lot of planning and work and you cannot focus on all these things without an extra hand.
