While this site has everything to help you plan your Horror At Homecoming party, you will need to get the marterials from our parent company, Night of Mystery. On that site, you will find all of the info you need on running a murder mystery party. This site is designed specifically to help you with party extras (such as decorations & costumes) and ways to enhance your Horror At Homecoming party.

Before ordering, we suggest you get an accurate guest count. You can do this by downloading an invitation to the party and asking for an rsvp. Once you have the guest count, you will be able to purchase the mystery for the correct amount of guests you are expecting.

All of the information regarding how to run your Horror At Homecoming party can be found online at Night of Mystery. We highly suggest that you take time to look over this website and download the Horror At Homecoming preview file. Upon reading the preview file, it will give you a better understanding about how the parties are run and what to expect once you purchase a full mystery file.

If you still have question, the Frequently Asked Questions page at Night of Mystery is a great resource or you can contact us.

Check out this well-thought out blog on "How to Host a Mystery Party". Note: this hostess hosted Murder at The Deadwood Saloon, but halfway through, she notes a number of good pointers for throwing your mystery party.

Additionally, you can always look online at our murder mystery forum to see what other hosts and hostesses have done for their parties and learn from their experience.

With this mystery theme, you have a unique opportunity to do theme-specific activities and such to enhance the mystery party! HEre are some ideas:

• Give your guest their own Homecoming Ticket. You can send these along to your guests with their character description once they have rsvp'd to the party. Ticket designs included with the mystery..

• Run your own Homecoming Court Election. Make a ballot box and have your guests vote who they would elect for the king and queen. Ballots are included with mystery.

• Crown Your Queen and King! At one point in the party, the Homecoming Queen and King will be announced. Have crowns on hand and/or sashes for the winners!

• Create a Photo Spot! What Homecoming dance would be complete without a posed photo to remember the night by. See directions and examples on the Decorations page on how to create the perfect backdrop!

• Throwing a Last Minute Party? Provide an assortment of accessories to help your guests "get into character" including: bow ties, costume jewelry, pom pons, crowns, etc.
