Sherlock Holmes Murder Mystery Party
Sherlock Holmes Murder Mystery Party Details:
This is what Deb shared about the party- “When my husband turned 40, I wanted to throw a surprise Sherlock Holmes Murder Mystery Party for him. I couldn’t find one so I decided to write my own. We’ve thrown a few murder mystery parties but this turned out to be the most hilarious party. I let a few friends throw their own parties and, again, it got rave reviews. I made a listing on Easy and suddenly received emails and rave reviews from people all over the world throwing this Sherlock Holmes Murder Mystery party and having a great time. How amazing is that?! Truly the gift that keeps on giving.
I love that you can place the party in any era. We did a traditional Conan Doyle party (although some have done a modern BBC version and some have done Steam Punk!). My husband played Sherlock and I was Irene Adler. Other guests were adapted from the original book series. We played the party intermingled with a 4-course dinner featuring appetizers, soup, lamb with mint sauce, and dessert. We decorated the house with skulls, detective gear, old typewriters and tea sets (Moriar-TEA). I printed a map of London and traced red yarn through push pins that marked scenes from Sherlock stories. The costumes and banter kept us in a stitch and a roar all night long. (BTW, my husband was the only one to guess the murderer, which was fitting for his role as Sherlock”!)
