About the Work

It’s hard to plan a dinner party. Schedules are busy, guests are flaky, and hosts often have no idea how many people are going to show up. So, we took the guesswork out of guest lists by giving hosts a way to compel everyone to come. We created a collection of invitations, each with an ingredient in them, that came together to make a delicious gravy. Forcing every guest to RSVP “yes” unless they wanted everyone else to go gravy-less. Who could say no?
