Our 2nd annual murder mystery party was a huge success yet again! All of our guests are so impressive with their costumes and the way they really got into character. Our cruise director printed her own raffle tickets and sold raffle tickets for a 'free cruise'; our showgirl brought her own speakers and song for her opening performance and the list goes on. We bought the bonus package as we had 33 guests but we did a lot of improvising. We added characters such as the following: Dr, housekeeping, chef, black jack dealer, pit boss, salon technician, photographer (who took over 400 pictures!!!!) etc. We transformed our living room into the promenade deck complete with shuffleboard, our basement into a casino with a craps table, blackjack table, slots and a roulette wheel, our dining room for the Captain's Buffet and the bathroom as the salon. We collected hotel keys and distributed along with a welcome aboard flyer. We printed portholes, casino winners, ship maps, stateroom signage, etc. and really tried to make people feel they had boarded a cruise ship. Of course we couldn't resist the Welcome Aboard photos with a personalized life preserver ring - we bought the plastic ring and applied our own black letters. Our lifeguard and cruise director ran the Evacuation Drill, instructing everyone how to properly put on their life jacket when the lights went out. We went from 20 people for the juice joint party our first year to 33 people this year - I can only imagine how many more people we'll have next year. Everyone seems to truly enjoy themselves and can't stop talking about the party - we've already voted on next year's theme. It really makes my day to review all the candid pictures the next day to see everyone smiling ear to ear in all the pictures! Happy to share any decorating ideas or files with anyone interested. I cannot wait till next year's - I've already started brainstorming!
