Murder Mystery Dinner

On Saturday we hosted our 6th Annual Murder Mystery Dinner Party. This year the story was all the guests were assembled for a wedding, but the groom arrived in the limo dead. We worked on the investigation of "Who Killed Cupid" over four courses of dinner, but no one figured out "who-dun-it" (only because it didn't make sense!)

Our guests were assigned their roles a couple days prior and they came in full costume ready to perform. The enthusiasm that each person put into their character and costume design really made the game. I laughed so hard!

We have amazing friends!! Costume assembly included borrowing from parents, siblings, friends, grandmothers and deep in the closet. Also a trip to the thrift store and a visit to the Wal Mart women's section by a certain grown man. Thanks, Friends, for coming and playing such an important role in our special evening. Here is the cast of...characters.

Bethany-model, Chris-guitarist

Sienna-wedding singer, Micah-sound coordinator

Connie-crazy old aunt, Eric-film director

Colombo-first ex-husband of bride-to-be, Amy-wife and personal assistant

Laryssa-photographer, Nathan-gondolier

Lisa- bride-to-be (x4), Shaun-drummer

I've never been to a murder mystery party. How weird is that? I know it's something I would love.

How fun! Adam an I always wanted to host one of those parties. I'm wondering if you made your own mystery or did you buy one in a box. -posted by Chelsea not Vanessa

Looks like you had a ton of fun! With a few exceptions, it also looks like the girls had more dressing up to do than the guys :)
