Party Theme:
James Bond New Year's

When it comes to planning your New Year's Eve party to bring in 2007, there's only one party to have…and that's a Bond, James Bond, 007 Party, of course. And as if you would question why, here's another reason. The remake of Casino Royale is being released at Thanksgiving so it should be available on DVD by then for a personal screening!

If you play your cards right, your guests will be treated royally and you'll be the talk of the town! Look out Las Vegas! Move over Monte Carlo! Casino Royale, here we come…


The invitation can be a custom CD with Bond theme songs with a personalized custom cover, a custom invitation from Party411 or you can make your own and send it with poker chips and/or dice. Here is some fun wording.
