A murder mystery party is an event where people dress up in costumes from different eras or genres and then work together to solve a fictitious murder during the party.

You can have a murder mystery party at home, work, or any other place you and your friends can gather. As for food and drinks to serve, we’ve got a few tips for you to start!

Why Are Murder Mystery Parties Great?

Murder mystery parties are a great way to get your friends together and have a fun evening. They are also perfect for when you want to get away from the everyday stress of life. Theories will abound as to who did the crime (when playing the mystery game) and who might be next on the killer’s list. These parties are also great for socializing, as everyone gets involved in trying to solve the crime.

How Should I Prepare For My Murder Mystery Party?

Start by preparing your guests for an evening of suspense and mystery! Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  1. Have the party location and time been reserved well in advance? This will help set the tone and ensure that everyone arrives on time.
  2. Set up some props and costumes to add some extra excitement. A dead body, bloody knife, or creepy mask can make all the difference in setting the mood for your guests.
  3. Make sure to have enough food and drinks on hand so everyone can enjoy a fun evening full of mystery. From savory dishes like ham steak with brown sugar glaze or beef stroganoff to sweet treats like devil’s food cake with raspberry sorbet filling, there’s something for everyone!
