There's been a Murder (Mystery)

We love Murder Mystery Parties!! This is the second one that we've hosted and one of several that we've been too.  It's great to dress up and pretend to be someone else while solving a mystery. It's like a real live game of Clue! Typically the games cost about $25 and can only be used once because the mystery is solved.  I found 'Til Death Do Us Part' at the thrift store for only $1.50.  It takes place in the Cayman Islands and the poor victim is the newly married Bride.  I won't say anymore since I will be passing this on to other members of my family to play. Now on to our guests...

Dean Cash (Las Vegas lounge singer) and Briony Bax (Bride's half sister) 
a.k.a. The Morris'

Courtney & Jason Fish (Parents of the Groom and members of Grand Cayman's 'old money' society)
a.k.a The Russell's

Claire Kingsley (Reigning Conch Queen) and Michael Cavanaugh (International croquet champion)
a.k.a. Diana and Carrie

Frankie Fish (the Groom) and Randi Bower (Caymanian debutante and party girl)
a.k.a. Brock and Andrea

Katie Kiebasa & Matthais Oleander (World famous wedding coordinators)
a.k.a. US :)

I think everyone had a great time, we were glad to finally do this since I've been holding on to it since September.  For hors d'oeuvres I served snacky foods like chips and salsa, cheese and wheat thins, a carrot cake cheese ball with scooby graham crackers, gummy bears, and Treacle Tart (Harry Potter's favorite dessert).  

I got the coolest cookbook for Christmas from my best friend Steph, it's a Harry Potter cookbook. Here's a picture of the treacle tart, it was very British since the filling is breadcrumbs with lemon and other flavorings, I didn't realize it was like a pie, but thought that was pretty cool.

Hope everyone's enjoying Spring wherever they are at! I'm heading out into the yard now for the morning and as a spoiler I'm planning my next post to be some pictures of how the house is decorated currently.

Hey, if that game makes it out to Perry send it to Brigham City! I want to host one of those, especially since it takes place in the Cayman Islands. Chad and I went on a cruise there with some friends. Looks like you guys had a great time!

That's where it's headed eventually so I'll let my parents know after they're done to send it on over! Hey what's your blog address?

Love love love it. Maybe after Chad and Rachel are finished I could get it out here. I would love to do one. So I also want to say that I am so excited for your next post. I have been waiting for a long time.

I am sure it will be amazing and fulfill all my expectations.
