Room Project Family Dinner

Room Project is a space for women, non-binary and trans writers and artists to work individually and collaboratively. The founders reached out to me to help put on their launch event – a family-style dinner for thirty where members and membership-curious folks could come together, break bread, and melt the ice in the Detroit summer heat.

Mother of Pearl Flowers hosted the event in their garden. They provided all place settings and a rainbow of stunning flowers grown onsite. I prepared shakshuka for thirty, zhoug, salad, and popovers, and we ended the night with ice cream and galettes with fresh local fruit.

I drew a placemat for each guest, which they were welcome to take home. One of the founder’s favorites became a symbol for Room Project, gracing their iconic tote bags.
