Spice invitation


For an event for the James Beard Foundation, John Kneapler created an invitation that featured a cinnamon stick, front and center. The sticks were hand-tied onto the cards and sent in padded envelopes; The scent of cinnamon gave guests a sense of how thoughtful -- and flavorful -- the event would be. Cost, approximately $5 per invite. (212) 463-9774;
