Mystery Dinner Party

Fun and crazy birthday idea for kids, tweens and teens! 

T
he guests are served dinner - but don't know what they have ordered until the food arrives.

Guests order off of a crazy menu that doesn't tell them exactly what they will be served.  

There are 3 rounds and finally most of the guests will figure out what to order to get the type of food they want to eat.   


We've included a sample menu to get you started!

1.  Make a list of the food that you will be serving
When we do this we usually serve - 2 kinds of pizza, 2 - 3 kinds of soda, chips, dip, goldfish crackers, and salad, but you can serve any menu.   Spaghetti, tacos, hamburgers and hot dogs all work well.   


2.  Give each food item you will be serving a crazy "mystery" name. 
Cheese pizza = round moo
Pepperoni pizza = dotted round moo
Coke = bubble brownie
Sprite = light sparkle
Chips = flat crunchy
Goldfish crackers = swimmers
Chicken Nuggets = golden fear
Spaghetti = ropes
Breadsticks = swords
Salad = Shredded and tossed
Croutons = Little blocks
Dressing = Pants and Shirts
Fork = Spear
Spoon = Dipper
Napkin = Tree square
The fork, spoon and napkin should all be separate items.   Part of the fun is watching the kids choose three things and then not having anything to eat them with once they arrive (especially entertaining when serving spaghetti!) 

3. Make up a menu for each guest using only the made up names. 

Make sure that their name is on the menu and that there are three boxes on each side of the items (you'll be giving them back their menus three times)  so that they can check off what they want each time. 


4. Tell them they can only check off three items each time. 

Don't give guests any clues to what the menu items mean.  The fun is to see them slowly

(usually after the second round) figure out what to order by laughing and asking what everyone else ordered. 

Keep the food hidden in the kitchen so they can't see it before or during the dinner.  

Be creative - this idea works with any menu (taco's, hamburgers & fries, hotdogs) and with any number of food items. 

Tips:  Write the guests names on their menus so they can order from the same menu 3 times.  Grab some helpers (older or younger children) to help deliver the food and turn in orders.
