Every few months I get a spark of inspiration when DIFFA hosts one of their Dining by Design events. Since there are no events in the Toronto-area (or anywhere in Canada), I have to resort to stalking Flickr for the latest pictures. I was lucky enough to have Nika Boyce share her beautiful captures with me.

A portable system, for events, that can laser-etch a cell phone, a laptop, an iPod or virtually any other compact product, with an image (logo, icon, name, etc). I recently experienced this at an event and my table and I brainstormed some very interesting possibilities. For instance, give your event guests a branded keychain and let them laser-etch the other side with whatever they want.

For more info {click here}.

Award-winning multimedia artist, skin illustrator, photographer and sculptor – how ever you refer to her, Emma Hack is a talent. Although based in Australia, Emma’s work is commissioned from all four corners of the Earth.

Her 2008 wallpaper collection is incredible – painted models becoming one with their patterned backdrops. This effect would be an incredible show-stopper at an event.

hot pink . not just for tarts . or little girls

When I was in Paris recently, I was tickled by the use of pink…in restaurant and hotel design. And, it was anything but girly. It felt fresh and bold. I like it. You know what I’d love? A male-centric event in pink. Now that’s fresh.
