The great thing is that you can customize the party! I did my Mystery Party as a Nancy Drew theme, but in the past month, I’ve created Encyclopedia Brown and A to Z Mystery versions.
Encyclopedia Brown Mystery Party
Jennifer wrote me, “We had TJ’s mystery party yesterday and it was great. Below are some pics (including TJ handcuffing my mom!). All the adult witnesses were so impressed with how well the children used reasoning and deduction throughout the activity. They actually solved the mystery correctly–accurately accusing my mom! It amazed me because, after throwing the party together (thanks to you and Lindy) in literally 2 and a half days–I was a little short on sleep and amazed all the clues came together so perfectly! Thank you and I will definitely keep you in mind for future parties!”
Here are two guests with their detective kits.
Witnesses are being questioned and fingerprints taken!
The cake came out great — this is the first time I’ve seen a duplicate of my cake and it is adorable!
Here’s grandma getting arrested by the birthday boy! She is a great sport!
Here is Jennifer’s table, all set for the guests. (How stunning is her home?)

Of course, I LOVE to customize my party kits! If you need more or less — no problem! Want me to throw in some extra touches? Happy to do it! The kit I just sent off to Theresa even changed some of the clues to meet her daughter’s special needs. If I can help make your next birthday party easier, please let me know!
