Murderly Manhattan

*This post is sponsored by Murderly. All opinions are my own.

I have always wanted to host a murder mystery party, but I never had the right opportunity until Murderly reached out to me to work with them. This party has been in the works for a while, but we wanted to wait until Celsey and Shawn were in their new house. We tried to plan it earlier this year, but the holiday season turned out to be the perfect time to host the party. We will definitely be making this a new annual tradition.

We picked the Manhattan party so we could dress up a little. Everyone was awesome and dressed their parts really well. We did a cocktail (mocktail) hour for chatting and trying to solve the murder, dinner, and dessert. We voted on the murderer between dinner and dessert.

the boys
the couples
the singles

Since the party was close to Christmas, we went with Christmas decor using mixed metals and pops of red. Celsey wanted garland for her house so we used that with a lot of candles throughout the area.

Celsey's character was the bartender so she and Shawn made drinks for us. The drinks were all very good and could easily be made as mocktails or cocktails. 







We wanted a little fancier dessert to match the theme of the party-brownie sundae with homemade chocolate ball that melts with homemade caramel sauce. It was one of the best desserts ever.


This party was so much fun. Hosting anything with Celsey is always a good time and always turns out really well. Planning and hosting something for adults only was different than our norm and so great. Murderly was great to work with, and I would absolutely do another party with them again.
