your local hardware store and pick up a roll of yellow CAUTION
tape. Its made of a cheap plastic (often times you can
find it at the Dollar Store, as well.) This looks great to
use in any number of ways in your decorating. You can use
it to mark off certain areas, especially a crime scene you
might have set up as part of an activity that you might have
planned (or a vignette you have set up for decoration.) It
also looks great to be used as part your party streamer selection!
a cardboard stencil with the word CORONER on it. This can
be used in a lot of different ways, painting the word on different
items with white spray paint all throughout your party area.
A great start is to spray paint them on black trash bags.
These bags can be used throughout your party for regular trash
- and they will fit the theme!
your local teacher supply store. Look at their cardboard cut-outs
section (the place where they would display the cardboard
images that teacher put up on their boards in the classroom.)
If you check out their science section you can find all kinds
of different science equipment like microscopes, test tubes,
etc. These make for GREAT wall decorations!
guests walk in to your party space, play the song Who Are You?
(from the original CSI TV series!) This will put them right
in the middle of the TV show!
you are going for a specific CSI show theme (i.e CSI Las Vegas,
CSI Miami, etc.) consider including that location into your
party decorations. For example, if you are planning your party
around the CSI Las Vegas series, include some casino party
decorations as well.
bones as part of your decorating - especially as part of your
main table centerpiece. Visit your local butcher shop and
ask them how much they would charge for just the bones. This
request isnt uncommon as many large dog owners visit
butcher shops asking this. They typically dont cost
that much. When you get the bones, boil them for several hours
until all of the fleshy party are removed. Once you have the
bones, let them set outside in the sun for a day or two and
youll have amazing looking bones to use as
part of your decorating. These can also be used as part of
an activity - perhaps searching for them in the sandbox, etc.
some chemistry/science teacher supply stores online for prices
on simple chemistry beakers and test tubes. Test tubes themselves
can be VERY economical to purchase and can look great on the
tops of cakes, cupcakes or as part of a table centerpiece
display you have planned.
the party will be held at your home, for fun consider placing
a sign on the door to the restroom that simply says COUNTY
Mystery Knife Pages on Hand Antiqued Paper
Rubies, Sapphires and Emeralds - NON-flat
back for ultimate reaslism! GREAT for a MYSTERY!
