James Bond New Year's Decorations and Party Supplies

As your guests enter the hall or party room, greet them with a life-sized cutout as you dressed as James Bond, the iconic Bond girl, or even Dr. No. Place a basket near the cutout with lots of New Year's wearables.  Add a speech bubble to your cutout letting everyone know to help themselves!
Make sure your guests think they are walking into the Casino Royale on New Years Eve. Here are some
  • For the walls - Try and get your hands on some James Bond movie posters, they are the perfect wall decoration. You can also use colorful, inexpensive scene setters to decorate your walls. You can have a wall full of slot machines and some giant money!
  • Poker Chips - pile on all of the flat surfaces. Speaking of piles of money, scatter personalized money and It's an easy way to add decoration to side tables.
  • Give all of your guest a big plastic cup to keep their "winnings" (this is where the personalized money comes in again).
  • Blackjack Tablecover - You can purchase green felt from your local fabric store and paint it with the layouts for craps or blackjack, or purchase blackjack tablecovers.
  • Keep the lighting soft and play some Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin in the background.
  • Put Goldfinger in the DVD player to add a little more Bond to your ambiance.

Casino Royale Table Decorations
The menu is really up to you. You can have anything from a full-blown 7-course dinner or elegant buffet to serving munchies throughout the evening, with coffee and dessert at the end.

If you're serving a sit-down dinner, you'll want to have seating cards. You can make your own by attaching mini playing cards or mini dice to each one. White linens for the tables, topped with cloth squares of red or black make a handsome room, and nice white china and flatware trimmed in glittering silver or gold add to the glitz and glitter. Sprinkle tables with foil wrapped chocolate coins for an extra spectacular touch.

If you prefer to do a buffet, make sure you decorate it with color coordinating table cloths. Set out casino paper goods and silverware bundles wrapped with New Year's beads so people can easily grab and go with the food.

Add some fun signage to different sections of the buffet to tie in with the theme:
  • Shaken Not Stirred Martini Bar
  • Octopussy Sushi Bar
  • Gold-Finger Foods
  • Dr. No-Double Dipping
Or you can let the martini's classic garnishes be your inspiration. Olive tapenade is a must, and onion dip will be a hit too.
 
No casino party's complete without lots of drinks so don't forget the bar. If you're making toasts, serve champagne. You have to serve martinis, what kind of James Bond party would it be without them? LED champagne and martini glasses will add an extra element of fun to the bar. With the booze flowing and the gambling going you can bet your guests will have the time of their lives!

Want to add some sizzle to your Casino Royale party? Modeling agencies can supply fabulous showgirls to walk around the game tables and serve champagne to your guests—unless you want to do the posing (oo-la-la!).

Casino Royale Games
This is the fun part. Rent casino gaming equipment from local vendors. They'll have set ups for Poker, Blackjack, Craps, Wheels of Fortune and Roulette tables. They may even have a list of dealers you can hire to run the games. An alternative to renting talent is to tap volunteers from your own group to man the tables in shifts. Think how cute they'll look, wearing a dealer's vest.

At midnight get everyone together to countdown to the New Year. Tell everyone to get their noisemakers ready and welcome 2012 with a bang! Consider handing out confetti horns and confetti poppers a few minutes before midnight, or set up a balloon drop!
