From Pattern to Palette : A Peek Inside our Tastiest Collaboration!

APR 7, 2017

At Spoonflower, we’re all about collaboration. Whether we’re working with our talented community of Marketplace designers to create whimsical projects like the chocolate milk tent or partnering with companies like Bucketfeet for weekly design challenges, the thought of bouncing around ideas with other creatives fills us with excitement! So, when we were contacted by Snap Pea Catering, a local catering company that focuses on wildly creative concept dinners in surprising locations,​ we knew this would be the tastiest collaboration to date. Although, we must admit, at first we were left scratching our heads as to how executive chef and owner, Jacob Boehm, would transform the Spoonflower HQ, a fully functioning factory, into a pop-up restaurant for three nights in March…

At Snap Pea Underground, each dish is carefully crafted to surprise and delight, from the surprise location to the concept menu. Yes – you read that right–diners don’t know where or what they’ll be eating until the actual event! For this menu, Jacob used inspiration from Spoonflower’s Marketplace and took designs from textiles to taste buds! No detail was overlooked and the creative interpretation of ten designs from the Marketplace transformed into ten courses left not only our bellies full but our creative brains whizzing.
