Fun Decorations For Your Dinner Guests
If you want to have a little fun with your murder mystery dinner guests, you can use some crime scene tape to decorate for the occasion. This can not only be a really cheap way to decorate the exterior of the house, but also a really fun way. You can put the tape on the front door, on the mailbox, on the porch or anywhere else that you desire. Of course, if you have neighbors then you might want to give them an explanation before you do it. Otherwise, you will have everyone thinking that a crime happened at your house. And you may even get some gawkers who come up to the house to see what exactly is going on. Of course, that could lead to some pretty funny conversations with the neighborhood!
