Murder Mystery Party!

So I was reading Emily from If I Can't Wear Heels I Don't Want to Go's blog, and she's posted this picture from a Murder Mystery Party she attended in college. 

Secret Confession:  I have secretly hoped that someone would invite me to a Murder Mystery Party for years.  No one ever has :(  Or, perhaps no one thinks it would be as fabulous as I do and just hasn't planned one?

So, I'm going to plan one.  I am going to host this event, and I am going to require that everyone dress their part.  And, I'm going to serve dinner...just like we are at a dinner theater.  It's going to be fabulous.  Louis will even have a part I think :)

Now, help me here.  Have you ever attended or hosted one of these?  What worked?  What didn't?  What did you walk away saying "the next time we do this, we shall do such and such to make it better"? 

I'm so excited!!!

OH i have to send you the link to the one tam did. she bought it, with characters and all. It was a TON of fun. i may or may not have "greyed out" who the winner, but that's only because we were having sooo much fun. and there was no dinner involved. dinner will help that part.

Oh, I love this!! I wish I lived in Smalltown, VA so I could come to this party!! I've never been to one, really, but my parents held one when I was a kid. I remember finding it super fun and glamourous with everyone dressed up in their costumes and stuff. I can't wait to hear all about your's when you have it!
