The words ‘Sherlock‘ and ‘Party’ aren’t usually put in the same sentence, at least not in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s series. But I’ve been thinking about this one for a while. I love to decorate and if you can’t tell by now, I love Sherlock Holmes. A party doesn’t have to cost a whole lot either if done correctly. All it takes is a little effort and a dash of imagination. Below, I’ve put together a list of ideas for a Sherlock Holmes inspired party. Take from it what you will, leave a comment below if you have any suggestions or if you do have a Sherlock party I want to see pictures!

Party Grand Total $71, give or take (shipping, tax, etc.)

Invitations – $?

A lost art is invitations. Used to be a big

deal to send invites to a party, now we get

Facebook invites. These can be fun if done

right. Make sure to say something cleaver in

the invitation!

Beakers – $2.06

Sherlock’s desk is always messy. Lucky for you,

this means easy decorating. Beakers are pretty cheap,

fill them with various liquids (food coloring) and it’ll

look really cool!

Graduated Cylinders – £3.52

These are supposedly the same cylinders that

were used in the show. I’m sure you can find them

elsewhere on Google Shopping.

Wall Art – $?

Use some old colored paper you have lying

around and cut out some designs. For example,

Rache, 221 B (how else will they find the party?),

smiley face (with bullet marks).

Victorian Pictures – $3.90

Throw back to some vintage Sherlock with these

images, or make your own!

Stick Signs – $0.79

Make whatever treats you like and stick

a sign in them! Makes for good sandwich holders

as well. Get creative and use whatever images

you like!

Games – $?

Print these out and give clues to the squares.

Get creative and make your own as well!

You can also do a Guess the Quote,

or Guess the Story game!

Magnifying Glass – $3.99/12 pieces

Course you have to have the Sherlock staple

at the party! These come pretty cheap, and you

can put them next to everyone’s plate.

Caution Tape – $2.63

Don’t go too wild with this, but it looks

really cool if done correctly! This could

also be found at a party store.

Books – $?

This could get a little pricey, but if you

find these at a second hand shop, it shouldn’t

set you back too far. Also, a great party favor!

Get Sherlock Window – $0.86

Window paint isn’t that expensive so feel

free to write whatever you’d like up there.

Though, ‘Get Sherlock’ is suggested.

Skull – $5.26

You can get two uses out of this own,

put it out at your Halloween party as well!

Tea Cups – $5

Only invest in these if you’re going to use

them again. Otherwise, go to your local

consignment shop and spend a couple bucks.

They may not match, but it’ll save you some cash.

Pillow $10 & Flag $1

This is another one that you should only

invest in if you’re going to use it later.

Amazon has quite a lot of options!

Clue Board Game – $10

I already own this game, but if you don’t

you can find it at places like Target for $10.

Specialty Drink – Bloody Lemonade – $5

Feel free to make of your own custom drinks,

or just rename the old ones for fun!

Having a menu of the drinks available is

also a good idea.

Cake – $15

You can make so many kinds of

cakes, but the Smiley one and the Union

Jack one above are good ideas!
