I’m excited to have a three-day weekend. I’m planning to work on things for the wedding. I need to take a trip to the venue to figure out placement and determine table linen sizes. (Any suggestions for where to get table cloths?) Then we’ve got a BBQ, river float, murder mystery, and a visit with friends. Very busy but fun!
A friend has the murder mystery game for us to use, but we’re hosting. It has a 50s theme, and I can’t wait. I love any excuse for a good costume!
If you’ve never participated in a murder mystery, you’re given a character with costume suggestions and a packet of clues with instructions/rules. You follow the prompts and script to play through while learning more about the murder as you go. Most of the time you don’t even know that you’re the murderer until close to the end. A good thing too – last time I played I was the murderer, and I have NO poker face whatsoever!
For this game, the Fellow will be a Russian scientist, and I’ll be a pageant queen with long evening gown and a tiara. I lucked out with a super clearance dress with a broken zipper from Gabe’s that I’m going to doctor up to fit the part.
I’ll post pictures from the weekend in next week’s blog.
