Secret Agent Party Blueprint

Secret Agent Party Blueprint

Clue # 1: Im a lover of FBI movies, Mystery novels and I'm weirdly obsessed with the Crime & Investigation channel. And on a trip to the International Spy Museum in Washington DC I became intrigued with the cold war and double agents.....it was here the Secret Agent Party idea was born.

I just have to say, this theme is perfect for your little aspiring Bond or Agent Evelyn Salt, whose full of imagination and problem solving.

Invitations 

If you want to make an impact with your guests, first impressions are critical. Operation invitation is made easy with these admit tickets asking the new recruits to report to headquarters AKA the party location. Cracking the secret code encrypted on the invite will gain your guests entry. Customised invites allow you to make certain requests too, so if you require your spies in training to come in disguise or wearing combat training attire, you can.

Styling 

Right, so you have set the tone with the invites and created a little intrigue, now setting the scene and creating the right atmosphere will take this party to the next level. I've used a red and black colour palette, chevron pattern and mustache accents which help to achieve a bold statement.

Interactions

Its imperative background checks and a screening process is implemented to weed out any potential double agents, so as each recruit arrives verify their cover by requesting the secret code and then begin finger printing, to keep on file, then issue a special clearance tags.

Concealing ones identity and the art of deception is #lifeofaSecretAgent so a top notch disguise kit is key. It includes: 

Secret eyewear and a stick on moustache help change appearance. A pretty darn cool invisible ink pen with a uv light to reveal top secret messages, mini magnifying glass for enhancing clues and a finger laser pointer for zeroing in on a target. These kits are a great way to kick off the party and double as the party favour making a great take home gift. 

Fully Loaded Secret Agent Party Disguise Kit

No training would be complete without intelligence testing, a series of missions keep your party recruits entertained and engaged. Mission # 1 is hidden within the disguise kit and is a test of recognition in the form of a word (all things spy of course) finder.  Mission # 2 test speed and perception with a code breaker and cypher. Mission # 3 is all about observation and tests the memory.

HOT PARTY TRENDS

HOT PARTY TRENDS

Need some party inspo?

Im sharing some of my favorite "what's hot" for parties, There is a serious abundance of new party vibes and themes constantly popping up, I've decided to focus on trends that are versatile and can be incorporated into any celebration. So enjoy the eye candy images, and remember the key to pulling off the perfect party is all in the details (and in some cases a fully stocked bar). 

 

Technology

It's a plugged in world we live in and with everyone just a click away from their devices these days it's really a no brainier that Technology features strongly on the party scene right now, with the likes of event hashtags, digital photo booths, live streaming and social sharing. Why not create your own hashtag at your next event and have your guests post pictures of the special day using your unique hashtag. #everyonesaycheese  

DIY Photo Booths

Popular the last few years this event favourite doesn't seem to be going anywhere. And rightly so!  Photo booths are a fun and interactive addition to your party and can easily be created to complement your theme all while capturing memories to look back on. And there are no shortages of backdrop ideas. Personally, I never let a good DIY photo booth opportunity pass me by.

Crazing Tables

Ahhh the humble cheese board has been re-invented, and as a lover of good food this trend sits well with me! Not only is it visually impressive but it's really rather practical too, I mean, who wants to spend time in the kitchen away from the party when you could be striking a pose with guests in the photo booth? This is perfection for feeding a crowd in a social and relaxed setting.

Boutique Tableware

Nothing sets the tone and ties in a theme better than the tableware, it's about more than just serving up food and beverages but creating a stylish and relevant table with pieces that are a statement all on their own. There are some pretty bomb designs in the marketplace right now, so there's no excuse for shabby and boring paper plates any more. Just saying.

Statement Balloons

Like cake, it's not a party without balloons right? and for 2k17 I'm not talking about the modest round type hanging out all on it's own (awkward), though make them transparent, throw in some confetti, add a tassel and I could make the exception. What I'm really talking about is Script balloons, Balloon Garlands, backdrops, and foil statement balloons baby! Think next level balloons.
