With me long distance, one person travelling, one person doing residency on a night shift, and one person prepping for comps there was not a lot of time available to get together before the party. We did our theme picking, invite designing, menu, and prop planning remotely and left our drinks expert entirely in charge of the drinks.

I contributed by helping brainstorming menu and making food signs and made actual food with the amazing Christina when I arrived. Christina managed to make the eggs blue on the outside! I also got to help a bit with the room signs, but real credit for those goes to Phil.

It was definitely a team effort (including extra help from David's wonderful girlfriend Kate), and we got a lot of compliments, so I feel pretty good about the results. One of the best parts was instead of having one photobooth we created room scene spots in each room of the party where characters could pose with weapons (or each other) in true Clue fashion.
