February 23, 2024

Great Gatsby Day is just around the corner on May 22, and what better way to celebrate than by throwing a 1920s-themed murder mystery party? The Roaring Twenties were all about jazz, flappers, speakeasies, and a touch of mystery. Hosting a party that captures this era’s essence can be a thrilling experience for you and your guests. Let’s step into the world of Gatsby and plan an event that’s as dazzling as it is mysterious.

Embracing the Glamour of the 1920s

To set the mood for your 1920s murder mystery party, think glitz and glamour. Decorations should scream opulence – think gold and black color schemes, feather boas, and pearl necklaces draping over everything. Play some jazz in the background to truly transport your guests to the Gatsby era.

Dressing the Part: Flappers and Fedoras

Encourage your guests to dress up in classic 1920s fashion. Flapper dresses for the ladies and pinstriped suits for the gents are perfect for getting everyone into character. Don’t forget the accessories – headbands, feathered hats, and pocket watches will add the perfect finishing touches to your guests’ outfits.

The Plot: A Gatsby-Worthy Mystery

Every good murder mystery needs a compelling story, and what’s more thrilling than a mystery set in the era of prohibition and speakeasies? The Murder Mystery Company offers a fantastic 1920s theme called ‘Death of a Gangster’. This storyline will take your guests on a suspenseful journey through the underworld of the 1920s, where they’ll get to unravel a thrilling mystery worthy of the Gatsby name.

Interactive Fun: Solving the Mystery

A murder mystery party is all about interaction. Your guests won’t just be spectators; they’ll be part of the story. They’ll gather clues, interrogate each other, and try to figure out who the cunning gangster behind the crime is. It’s a perfect way to ensure everyone is engaged and having a blast.

Adding Twenties Flair: Food and Drinks

No 1920s party would be complete without era-appropriate refreshments. Serve classic cocktails like mint juleps, sidecars, or gin rickeys. For food, think elegant finger foods – canapés, deviled eggs, and stuffed mushrooms are all great choices that fit the theme.
