Oh NO Tim Plinsky is DEAD!!!
Last Saturday I hosted my 4th annual murder mystery party. This years event was a Halloween theme. The mystery party works a little something like this:
Guests arrive in costume and choose a character. They then read over their suspect guide. The suspect guide includes a character description and hide/share information.
Then we mingle!
Then all of the sudden the lights go out and we discover the dead body.
After we find the body we have to figure out who did it. The guests interact using their suspect guides to help.
Then sleuths cast accusations and the killer is revealed!
I use kits that I find online and it is very simple to do. Shotinthedarkmysteries.com and nightofmystery.com both are very easy to follow.
We always have a great time! I am always surprised at how much the guests get into playing their characters. I don’t know how you can not have fun when you add friends, food, libations, music, and great entertainment all in one place.
Here are some pics of the party!

Our party contributor, Tracy McCoy, has created yet another gorgeous party for us to marvel at the details. This fairy themed party was for her daughter Lena’s 3rd birthday.
Each girl received a glitter crown, fairy wings, and a colorful tutu. This party was certainly a little girls fairy tale!
It looks like the birthday girl was certainly enjoying herself.
Tracy never misses a detail. Who wouldn’t love to be a guest at this gorgeous party? For more pictures and party and home inspiration, you can visit Tracy’s blog, Lovely Expressions.
If there is anything my daughter loves, it’s Elmo! Despite many attempts to convince her to have any other type of party, she simply would not budge. She wanted an “Elmo’s World” party so that’s what she got.
My favorite detail of the party was the custom pinata of Mazie wearing her birthday outfit. They nailed every detail – adorable!
We often sing our “Mazie’s World” version of the Elmo’s World song, so when I found this old TV box at Retro in Rogers, I knew I had to have it for the custom pinata. She was the star of the show (which is really appropriate because she is known for stealing the show). 2Katie designs made this awesome giant #2 and I hand painted the Elmo.
I had the cake stands custom made. My favorite is the pink and orange striped one that was meant to resemble Big Birds Leg. Meridienne Dessert Salon did an amazing job with the feather and fur inspired cakes.
I wanted to offer our guests something different and fun so I created Oscar’s Trash Can Apples, a caramel apple bar. We had toppings like Trash Candy, Horrendous Heath, Mud Chips, Grouchy Grams, Mushy Marshmallows, and Wormie’s Worms.
Oscar was not happy because Mary Mary Quite Contrary had her flower garden right outside of his trash can again. His sign said SCRAM, but she must not have cared because she left her flowers there anyway.
Hooper’s Store must have just received a shipment because they were stocked full with new merchandise. They had Abby Cadaby’s colorful candies, Big Bird’s long neck lollies, diamond necklaces, Crazy Mazie’s bubbles, and gumball tubes.
The line for the Chicago Dog cart was lined up all the way down Sesame Street. They had so many delicious options: Chicago Dogs, New York Dogs, Slaw Dogs, and Coney Dogs. As you can tell, the birthday girl really enjoyed hers!
Friends and family are what really made the day special.
Happy Birthday, Sarah Grace McCoy! It looks like it was an amazing day.
Sarah’s mom, Tracy, threw this insanely creative art party for her daughter’s birthday. There were so many fun activities and treats for the kids. Upon arrival, each guest received a custom apron with a pail stocked full of art supplies for the masterpieces they were about to create.
There was certainly not a shortage of sweets at this celebration. She had color a colorful cake, cookies, and cupcakes to match the theme. We are crazy over the paint board cookies.
The girls had so many fun art stations: painting frames, tie dye shirts, and melted crayon canvas art. You have to see all of the fun details on Tracy’s blog, Family of Four. Click HERE to be inspired! Thanks for sharing Tracy!
