Parties & Celebrations

Clue Carousal

The Clue Carousal was a major success for our first party in our new apartment! We ended up having a total of 18 guests. Since Erick and I started our own parties, I’ve never had such a great turn out. It was an awesome feeling. Not only that, at the end, lots of people were asking for more in the future, which made me feel really good.

When I got up this morning, people were already talking about last night on Facebook. Someone even shared a quote from yours truly trying our party’s very bad selection of tequila for the shots portion of the game, “Who hasn’t had a shot of that tequila? Okay, you have to take a shot. It’s TERRIBLE.”

All in all an extremely memorable night. Unfortunately, I was so busy hosting that I didn’t get to take as many pictures as I wanted and most of them came out blurry. I had also planned to take some photos of the set up and the details, but people started arriving and I got distracted trying to make room for all the food coming in. 🙁 But I do have some photos to share, regardless. One guest also allowed me to share a photo she took from last night. I’m hoping more guests come forward with what they have because I saw lots of people taking photos.

One of my favorite things that happened was that the majority of our guests really got into their roles and totally costumed up. It was fantastic. And I have a picture of almost every guest in the murder booth. I wish that’d gotten used a little more than it did, but I’m really glad that I changed a rule of our game which meant that it got used even more! 

Multiple interests and resourceful optimism keeps this mama of two always at the ready for life's next adventure. Meet your hostess here.
