Murder Mystery Dinner
Our 2nd Annual All Girl Murder Mystery Dinner went off without a hitch! Our 1st party was a formal sit down dinner, but we decided on the meet and mingle version of "One of the Girls" mystery, provided by Merri Mysteries. The mystery was about the murder of a classmate from an all girls' school right before their big reunion. Every one brought finger foods and mingled around our media room. Greyson (the gorgeous cop) and I decided the renuion hall should be styled after all the cheesy middle school/high school dances we went to, complete with 80s music, a disco ball, and lots of balloons and streamers as you can see. Beef and I transformed our living room into the crime scene with me posing for the taped body outline.
We had 11 classmates, who were the suspects, and several other parts of authorities and witnesses. Everyone gave their own take of each character with unique costumes and dialogue. I played the part of Angie, a tough smart-mouthed biker chic, which is so not me. But, I enjoyed every minute of trying to start fights with the other characters.
Everyone did so well, and we had so much fun! We gave away prizes for the person who guessed "Who Did It" and who was voted best costume. Amy Shirley, who played farmer Jillaroo, guessed the culprit, and Letha Kopchak, who played the Hindu classmate, won best costume.
