I love the thought of a Detective Party because I have long been a fan of mysteries.
From my early years, when I devoured every Nancy Drew or Hardy Boy mystery I could find, to today, when I still love to read, what (and play!) detective.
My favorite detective movies are the old Thin Man Movies. Not exactly appropriate for little kids - but I love them! Tracking down "who done it" with humor and 1930's splendor...they are great fun!
Whether you are planning a detective theme party or mystery party, the theme will involve a mystery or scavenger hunt of some kind.
