It’s a mystery as to why I can’t find a job. Why I would start my own business. What the name of my new party planning pop-up is going to be called.
I wrote this murder mystery and published on Amazon: Updo! Now, I’m going to start hosting this adult role-playing game in my own local community. I’ve already done this with my friends, back in KC. It’s the most fun I’ve ever had at a party. And totally original. I also threw a similar party for my daughter, but age appropriate. They seemed to really like it. It was more of a junior high adventure with clues. I could even write new, customized mysteries for any theme: Western saloon, 50s diner, 40s detective noir.
The mystery for this one is: someone is murdered at a salon and all of the party guests are a character from the story. While relaxing with spa-like activities, the guests participate in clue-revealing sketches. Everyone takes a “stab” (LOL) at guessing who the killer is at the end. There are stations, silliness and a very funny makeup and hair makeover contest for all the ladies.
What should I call my new business?
Martha’s Murder Mysteries?
Pop-up Party Mysteries?
What would you call it? I would love your suggestions!

“Get ready to relax, kick back, laugh and have a grand old time with your
best galfriends! This party is so fun and easy to throw. Every woman already
has all the props in her bathroom! The host does need to read the entire set of instructions, lists and scripts to prepare and understand game play. The party is even more fun if you’re serving cocktails, not just water. Like cucumber martinis for those tired ladies with a cucumber garnish for those tired lady eyes! You’re trying to solve a murder, but you’re also trying to relax and pamper yourself. Might as well, you’re at a spa! So. There’s been a murder! Obvs!
Barbera Bouffant, the salon owner of the Updo Salon and Spa, was found in the tanning booth…fried! She’s been murdered. Someone tampered with the bed and she’s toast. She’s dead, but her tan looks amazing. She’ll be the prettiest corpse at the funeral home. Madge, the manager, finds her first. The back door was closed but unlocked. However, Barbera could have accidentally forgotten to lock up. She did that often. You and your guests have to figure out who the killer is. Some of you work at the salon and some of you are clients, but you’re all suspects. Everyone had a motive and opportunity to kill Babs. Dun-dun-dun!”
