I know it’s been a while, but you may recall my love for Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, a TV show based on a series of novels by Aussie author Kerry Greenwood. I wrote about the show and later about the gorgeous fashions last year when Season One aired here in Australia.
And folks, it’s finally time…. season two is here!!!!When I first heard of its return I had great plans.
“I will have a party or drinkies in honour of Miss Phryne Fisher,” I thought, before returning to the apathy in which I usually wallow.
And so of course, tonight is the night that Phryne will again grace our screens and I have nothing planned.
That didn’t stop me spending an irrational amount of time this afternoon planning what my Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries party would have involved of course. Well, providing I had an exorbitant budget and myriad of friends who are also lovers of Miss Fisher. And sadly, I have neither.
However… let’s get back to the party-in-my-head.
Guests WOULD naturally be required to dress appropriately, with silk, sequins, feathers, and floaty sheer fabrics very welcome from the fairer sex and dapper suits or shirt-sleeves, from the gents! Hats, scarves, shawls, headpieces, faux fur and parasols would also be appreciated.
There would – of course be the odd Tango and Charleston and the like (okay, well… maybe not!) – but definitely some jazz and soulful tunes.
And there would be mood lighting; an array of bright glistening globes and/or fairy lights amidst a palette of black, white and gleaming gold and silver, with fabulous cocktails consumed out of crystal glasses of various shapes and sizes. And there’d be finger food galore served on silver platters by austere and impeccably groomed waiters.
But… like I said, I’ve organised none of that, so instead I’ll loll on my couch drinking champagne and eating popcorn as I welcome Phryne and the team back to our screens!
Are you a Phryne Fisher fan?
