Secrets to a Great Murder Mystery Party

Updated: Jul 31

Good day, I am Madame Cluedefti -- expert on all things Murder Mystery. Do I feel the presence of a neophyte party planner? Well, let me mentor you in the art of hosting a murder mystery party!


Murder mystery parties have been around for over a century, but today they are more popular than ever. People love to attend parties like this but no one sees what goes into throwing one of these parties.

Let me share with you secrets from the stars!


First, let me tell you about choosing a location where you can host your party. Search the lands and find a place that has plenty of spaces for your cars. You'll want to talk with the management and make sure they don't change rooms on you. And be sure you make notes about the size and dimensions of the room so you can tell the company where they're going to be performing.

Be sure to check out our other blog post on how to set up table seating for a murder mystery for more info on that.


Let us move on to the theme of your party -- which should compliment both the season and time of the year as well as the murder mystery show you plan to book. Be sure to discuss your theme with the company when you call them.

Host a Christmas party if it's almost Christmas time. Arrange a kids show if you're having a child's birthday party. And be sure to ask about shows for the wedding of your dreams.

And this is my final piece of advice. You need to select a murder mystery company that has lots of experience and plenty of good reviews. Madame Cluedefti can see the future, but you are powerless in this regard. Seek out the advice and recommendations of your neighbors, friends, and those who write up their experiences on Web sites like Yelp and Google.

But if you don't have the time to search the yellow pages, I shall help you along! As I look into my crystal ball, I see many people laughing and applauding you. You turn to a man. He's a performer. He is handing you a card. The card says:
