Last weekend, Hubs and I had a little holiday at home. We took Bri to stay with her Mimi and Gampa, so that we could attend a party. The party was a costume party set in the 1920′s that included a full murder-mystery plot.
We were each assigned various characters. Meet Guilda – the innocent wife of the Mafia boss’s accountant.
And here’s the mayor. He’s on the mafia’s payroll. Don’t say that I told you so!
At the party, the lights flickered out and someone was “shot” in the dark. (It sounded more like a high heeled shoe slamming down.) We spent the rest of the evening pointing fingers, claiming our own innocence and discovering dirty secrets about the other characters at the party.
Secret affairs and marriages were brought to light. As well as dirty money and threats of blackmail.
Did I mention that the food was delicious? Yum!
And the setting was lovely. It was the Grand Opening of the new speakeasy – a gin joint owned by a couple known for their houses of ill-repute.
And our hostess herself, was a doll. She and I had so much fun capturing photos for the party.
She made sure that I got in front of the lens every once in awhile too. We had a blast! Can’t wait to do it again.
