My wonderful husband turned 40 and we celebrated the milestone with a James Bond themed party. After all, my hubby is indeed "Aged to Perfection" and to me he will always be sexier than the sexiest James Bonds (Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig).
I wanted something personalized and original so I looked through dozens and dozens of James Bond posters and memorabilia and decided on making him the next James Bond.
I wanted something elegant for the decor so I chose red, black,white and silver as the main color pallet and incorporated gold throughout the party as an accent color. I pulled several details from some of my favorite 007 movies for inspiration such as dice, playing cards, golden guns, chess pieces, martinis, guns, gold bars and jewels.
For dinner we had a "Locked and Loaded" Baked Potato Bar with all the fixings and an array of salads and soups. My dear friend Jamie made marvelous sweets, the martini shaped rice krispy treats, dice cake pops and chocolate covered Oreo tuxedos and martinis.
