I’m watching Dateline – total murder mystery tonight. Onto the real topic – Murder Mystery Parties! We’ve been hosting them for…. 6 years. They are a TON of work (and aren’t cheap) but I love throwing them. I love seeing my friends have fun and be creative. I love being creative with the decorations and menu and costumes. Murder mystery parties and Halloween are my “adult” excuses to dress up. I think I’ve narrowed down the theme for our 6th Annual Party:
Once Upon a Murder – A Tale of Treason and Treachery in a Kingdom Far, Far Away
This one sounds so cool – Prince Charming throws a ball with attendees including Snow White, Rapunzel, Alladin, The Big Bad Wolf, Hansel and Gretel, Rumpelstiltzkin, Beauty and the Beast and the list goes on! Oh, and Cinderella is missing – scandaaaaaalous! *For my regular attendees I haven’t decided yet if I’m going to do this party in the Spring or more toward late summer/early fall – stay tuned.
Here’s a look back at our past parties:
1st Annual – Murder at the Juice Joint – 1920’s glamour; this was our first go of it. Everyone was a little apprehensive about what to do but it all worked out. Our kitchen floor was COVERED in booze with feathers stuck to it. I think we washed it 3 times.
2nd Annual – Murder Among the Mateys – Arrrrrrr! Pirates! This party started out with a HAIL STORM! It looked like snow. Made a great foggy atmosphere outside though. 😉 Same person “died” 2 years in a row – oops, sorry Dan!
3rd Annual – Murder at the Deadwood Saloon – a rip roarin’ Wild West party. Lots of hookers. Lots of feathers. Lots of cowboys.
4th Annual – Horror at Homecoming – totally tublar 80’s party. Where’s the Aquanet? The music at this party was killer, no pun intended. Speaking of killers – I was the killer this time. 🙂
5th Annual – Murder Under the Big Top – the circus has come to town! The creativity with costumes for this party was amazing.
I’m so looking forward to the next and I hope my friends are too!
