Everyone loves a compelling mystery; and it’s no ‘mystery’ that guests will love a murder mystery party.
Guests could come dressed for a murder mystery party in the homemade guise of their favorite mystery movie detectives. These could range from Sherlock Holmes to Jane Marple, Sam Spade to Mike Hammer, Remington Steele and Laura Holt to Nick and Nora Charles to Dave and Maddie from “Moonlighting,” Nancy Drew to the Hardy Boys.
For entertainment guests could watch classic detective films like “The Maltese Falcon,” popular crime shows such as “Law and Order,” “CSI” and “Cold Case,” or more modern, whimsical movies like “Clue.” They also could play the board game of the same name, or even devise and play act their own mysteries; assigning each guest with a dramatic flair a role such as murderer, victim, witness, dame/dude in distress, suspect, etc., while others can watch the proceedings, gather clues, and try to guess ‘whodunit.’
Decorations at a murder mystery party could include handmade cardboard, plastic or paper mache props like smoking guns, knives, poison bottles, trench coats, bowler hats, etc.; along with photos of actors and actresses known for playing detectives, ranging from Humphrey Bogart to Angela Lansbury. Guests can admire the décor as they chomp down on homemade themed snacks, like Detective Doughnuts, Killer Cookies and Shotgun Soda.
Everybody loves a good whodunit. And it’s no mystery that a murder mystery party will go over big with hosts and guests alike. Plan the ultimate murder mystery party today!
