Meal food

Meals are a little tricky during murder mystery parties, because you usually have to move around a lot in order to do the murder mystery. If you want to serve a full meal, you can definitely still do it - you just have to get creative with it. Either you want to have items that are quick and unobtrusive (hot dogs, hamburgers, dagwood dogs, and other foods that you can enjoy with one hand), or you will want to have the meal before or after you're done with the murder mystery part. That way, you aren't worrying about people spilling food and people don't feel like they're in a rush to scarf down their food and get going with the murder mystery part again.

Snacks and appetisers

Many murder mystery parties in Perth and Western Australia will serve appetisers and snacks instead of a full meal. That being said, you still have to be a bit careful when it comes to these as well. Chips and dip are a good choice, because you can transport them easily on a plate. Finger foods, like pigs in a blanket, mozzarella sticks, and potato skins, are also a good choice. Stay away from really messy foods like hot wings, because if your guests are going to be eating while they are working on the murder mystery clues and such, it could end up making a huge mess. Keep it simple, and keep it to foods that they can just pop in their mouth while they continue on their way and work on solving the mystery that is at hand.


If you're doing a murder mystery party later in the evening or in the middle of the afternoon, desserts can be a really fun type of food for you to serve. You may not want to indulge in them during the actual mystery part of the night (unless they're simple desserts, like cookies and brownies, which you can carry around), but they can be a great way for you to end the night. Pies, cakes, and other delicious desserts can be really good - and, in some cases, you may be able to get some of your guests to bring desserts to share! There are so many good desserts out there that you're likely to be able to ensure that there is something that everyone at your party can and will enjoy.

As you can see, it's all up to you and your guests. The format of the party, the time of the party, the budget that you're trying to stay in, and the people that attend will all play a role in the decisions that you make about the food that you serve. That being said, make sure that you get a variety of different foods so that all of your guests can enjoy them, and be aware of any sensitivities or allergies that your guests may have, so that everyone is able to indulge in whatever goodies you have to offer.
