We have invitations available for download, or you may purchase custom-printed invitations to match your party’s theme.

Murder for Hire

If you don’t know this exact number, simply plan for an estimated number of attendees (please let us know if your list is estimated, so we can plan for additional guests).
Please allow one to two weeks for creation of your party before shipping. Parties with customizations may take longer.

You’ll want to assign each guest a character. The best way to do this is by matching the personality of each guest to our character list. There is a guest list worksheet included in your Host Guide to assist you in this process. At least one to two weeks before your party, you should distribute character information to your guests. This will allow your guests ample time to prepare their costumes, props, and life stories. Please remind guests to keep the details of their character secret until the party!

Your Host Guide tells you where the murder takes place, and gives suggestions for setting the scene. It also has tips for food and decorations to help with the ambience of your party. Each party has a Pinterest board with great links for recipes, decorations, character costumes and more.
