Punchbowl

Massachusetts based Punchbowl Software is behind Punchbowl.com, the one-stop site that helps smart moms and savvy professionals plan a party from start to finish. The site guides a host through all of the steps of planing a party and solves common problems along the way.

Party planning features include customizable digital invitations, potluck organization, gift registries, local vendor search, RSVP management, party supplies, photo/video sharing and much more.

Punchbowl includes Digital Invitation Studio, which offers hundreds of stylish and modern invitations and save the dates, each with companion envelopes in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. The designs can be customized with embellishments that include envelope liners, postage, and personal photos. The result is a custom invitation with a matching custom envelope delivered right to a guest’s inbox that replicates the act of opening a traditional paper invitation.

Punchbowl has made setting a date much easier through the help of an algorithm that recommends the best date for your party. Invitees are sent a “Date Decider” email that allows them to select the best date for them from a set of dates supplied by the host; Punchbowl will then recommend the optimal date in real-time giving preference to the host and important guests.

Furthermore, the site also allows you to set up message boards and integrate Google Maps’ to display the location. After the party’s over and you’ve cleaned up the spilled wine, Punchbowl lets you create an after-party message board where attendees can share comments, photos, and videos. The after-party stage will allow comments, ratings and recommendations.

Founded by software and user interface experts Matt Douglas and Sean Conta, the company is located in Framingham, MA and is backed by Contour Venture Partners and Intel Capital.
