Punchbowl? It's a website for party planning and e-cards and it is pretty amazing! I have found myself sending out invites for simple things -- just to have the fun of sending them. Their invites are unique, in that they arrive in recipient's emails looking like a snail-mail card, complete with envelope and postage! A click opens the envelope, and the invite appears.
Guests can RSVP on the site, and hosts can track responses, as well as receive and send notes. There are tons of themes, perfect for kids or adults. So much of their site is free, but you can also purchase a subscription to access more content.
In addition to sending invitations, you can do all your party planning through the site, including finding local vendors. You can also set up email reminders for important events (like birthdays). And, finally, you can send unique and creative e-cards.
Another thing I like about the site is that they highlight special days -- like today is National Gazpacho Day! It's a fun addition and while the information is on their home page, they also update their Facebook page with each day's special commemoration.
I have had fun playing around their site, and the invitations and cards I've sent have been well-received. I like the convenience of online party planning and RSVP tracking, and the ease of using this site has made it my online party planning choice. I recommend you check it out! And, now, I need to plan some holiday parties.
