I've also wanted to have a murder mystery party. Madison and I decided that we would have one for her friends this year. We used the game Barbecue With A Vampire.
We set the table with vases filled with "blood" and candles. The table cloth, napkins, and dinner ware were all black. We used plastic vampire teeth for the napkin rings. For dinner we served Funeral potatoes, Killer kabobs, vampire sausage, blood punch and a delicious strawberry salad that didn't have a clever name. I also made caramel apples, but I forgot to serve them!
All of Madison's friends came dressed as their character. Everyone said they had a great time. I just felt like the game lasted F O R E V E R !!! It was fun spending time with Maddie's friends. She has chosen great ones! I always know they are making great choices. It was a fun night!
