0040 James Bond Birthday Celebration | Chez Chicago
0040 James Bond Themed Birthday Party
What better way to celebrate Akin’s 40th Birthday with a luxurious evening and a touch of mystery than creating a unique and fabulous black tie birthday bash for Akin (Loving husband of our very own Akeshi) could not have been more fun! The entire celebration was flawless, if we do say so ourselves.
Every single detail of this glamorous celebration had Bond, James Bond, written all over it; from the “Top Secret” invitations designed by Greenstar Paperie all the way down to the custom Bond songs perfectly performed by SWAY Chicago. Some other details we can’t stop obsessing over was the 0040 Ice Sculpture created by Johnson Studios Ice Sculptures and the custom bars with Bond inspired signature drinks including martinis, shaken, not stirred of course. If the signature drinks didn’t fulfill the cravings of the guests surely the cigar and bubbly bar could be of assistance. Guests also enjoyed scrumptious bites from Entertaining Company.
The Kesh Designs team created a welcoming ambience with white florals, furniture, draping and soft fabric and lighting design through the o so gorgeous Chez!. The aerialists and showgirls majorly contributed to the sexy and mysterious ambiance of the evening. Black jack tables and dealers were available to guests that were feeling lucky and those that didn’t want to test their luck weren’t shy on the dance floor. This night was full of genuine laughter and happiness and if you don’t believe me take a look at the absolutely genius work of Gold Grid Studios below!
“I don’t stop when I’m tired. I stop when I’m done.” – James Bond. Apparently our guests were neither tired, nor “done” because the party never really stopped. Take a glimpse into the night we wish we could relive!
