Menus with a twist

We are always looking for ways to make every element of an event special. When working on an event that is taking place this weekend we wanted the menus to feel like a keepsake from the event.

Our fabulous intern Sarah created these menus which are mounted on wood panels. They definitely bring the event's nature theme to life! More photos from this event to come soon.


Do you Pin?

Here at SSP we are a tiny bit obsessed with a little site called Pinterest.
You may have heard of it, it is amazing!

Currently in beta testing this site is an amazing way to collect all of your visual inspiration and keep it in one place. You virtually "pin" a photo you find from a website onto a "board" you create online. Pinterest allows you to curate boards and create your own topics. It even allows you to save the link to the photo you choose so you never need to worry about remembering where you saw that great item online.

I have one called "Color" for an event I am working on with a gradient color theme.

Here is a sneak peak at what my board on Pinterest looks like in the big picture and what the individual "pins" look like...

You can follow also friends and other "taste makers" by industry or theme to see what they are "pinning."

They are still working out some kinks but overall this is a great site.
Request an invite from Pinterest to join here!

At the beginning of each new year SSP takes a morning together for us all to work on our vision boards. We create one board that represents the goals and aspirations for SSP and then we each create our own boards filled with images and text that represent what we hope the next year will bring for us both personally and professionally. Our vision boards are at each of our desks where we see them as a daily reminder of what it is we aspire to achieve.

The SSP company vision board for 2011

I would have to say that this year we all drastically changed our boards from the previous year! It is a great exercise in clarifying your goals, aspirations and what you truly want. Looking at them each day helps us to check in with our goals and serves as a positive, inspirational reminder to take steps to move towards them.

Below are our own personal vision boards for you to take a peek.

What's your vision for 2011?
