It’s also nice to use the green color scheme, resembling the color of money, to balance your party’s design and make your space look more refreshed. 

A James Bond 007 Theme 

A casino-themed party can look even better with a James Bond 007 theme, especially when preparing a charity fundraiser event. Go all out with casino-themed live music and elegant dress codes.
