Parties to Die For

Parties to Die For, A Night of Mystery Blog

Martha Stewart Has Nothing On Her.

  My name is Jenn, I'm writing for my friend/boss Rose who is known for her parties, I mean really, Martha Stewart has nothing on her. For our murder mystery party we chose Murder Among the Mateys. It was AMAZING! We had so much fun!!! Rose decorated her entire home, and transformed it to feel like the Salty Sea Dog Inn.
Everyone got really into costuming and acting the part. The game is done so well that it was easy for even the shyest person to play along. 
 
We had a party of 21, because we were on person over, I made up my own character (the mermaid) and became the "m.c." for the evening. 
 
We found this worked nicely if anyone needed a little extra coaching or if some of the "speaking roles" weren't a comfortable in front of everyone. The party began as I greeted everyone at the door with the first envelope and a shot of tequila, to get everyone warmed up and feeling "pirate".

Then all the guests had time to meet and greet during cocktail hour which was filled with sushi, oysters, shrimp, with a signature cocktail, Hurricanes, fitting for any pirate. Beer and sake were served the entire night. 
Dinner began with a first coarse of clam chowder and rustic breads. For the main coarse we enjoyed a whole salmon, rotisserie chickens, a lentil salad, fingerling potatoes, and grilled vegetables. We were stuffed (needless to say) but not too stuffed to find that killer and scarf down some delicious rum cake, a favorite dessert of any pirate!
 
I was very pleased only 3 people guessed who the killer was, and everyone was so sure of who they has accused! We'll recommend Night of Mystery Party Games to anyone looking to throw a rockin' party. We're already planning our next murder mystery for New Years Eve. We'll be throwing a 1920's shindig Murder at the Juice Joint!
