About this Challenge

Roll out the tablecloth, polish the old silverware, and imagine you're the host with the most, planning your ultimate dinner party. All the details are in your hands: the guests, food, music, decor, and entertainment – it's all up to you.

Most importantly, we want to know who's on the guest list. Who are the special people who will get an invitation? Your party guests can be dead or alive, real or made up, famous or not! Tell us why you chose this list of guests to invite, and don't be shy sharing all the details: What would you serve them? Is there a theme? How do you plan to set the mood? Enter the Dinner Party Challenge and share your ultimate dinner party plans with the special invite list included.

Fingers crossed—we hope we get an invite!

    How Challenges Are Judged

    How Challenges Are Judged

    There’s no one right way to tell a story. Inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes, and we want to see what yours looks like. Challenges are meant to inspire this creativity, and we want to see you tell a story that’s unique and authentic to you—but there are just a few things we look for across the board to be sure we’re judging every entry consistently and fairly.
