Ten Ways to Celebrate Alfred Hitchcock's Birthday Right

Here at Mystery Playground, we love Alfred Hitchcock - the movies, the short story magazine and the mayhem. 

Here's a guide to everything Hitchcock:

1) Have THE best Psycho Marathon - with the book, the movies, the TV show, and snacks. You'll need a weekend for this one... 

2) Have a Dial M For Murder Party - complete with themed drinks and food. 

3) Enjoy a Cary Grant/Alfred Hitchcock double feature. And you can make an Alfred Hitchcock Profile jar while you're watching the movies.  

4) Subscribe to Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine - With six issues a year this short story magazine is filled with Hitchcock inspired tales to keep your spine tingling. 

5) Have a Dinner Party Honoring "The Birds" - complete with decorations, icebreakers, and recipes. Don't forget "The Birds" Pot Pie.

6) Have a Rear Window Drinks party with Rear Window Brownies and Voyertinis. Leave the curtains open. 

7) Check out these fabulous vintage movie posters from Alfred's movies. They are so cool. 

8) Watch Hitchcock's The Lady Vanishes and with a dinner of potato soup. Wait, where did she go? 

9) Play the Alfred Hitchcock Board Game. If can find it on eBay. 

10) Make a greeting card inspired by To Catch A Thief. It's not that hard.
