A follow-up to last week’s customer post now. Mom Deanna also revealed she threw a baby shower for her cousin Jenna, who chose us before knowing Deanna was an O&L fan.
Jenna, from Bakersfield, CA, gave birth to baby Xander – appropriately – on Mother’s Day this year. The pics are from the beautifully conceived (pun intended) shower, in February.
Here are Deanna and Jenna, left to right. Deanna says, “I wanted the decorations to be reusable in her room. When I asked what her nursery inspiration was she sent me a link to your George crib bedding! This was so funny because she had never seen my nursery and discovered your designs all on her own!” Well, obviously good taste runs in the family!
I was thrilled when I saw the pics, I just had to share. Such an impressive effort to ensure everything tied into our George design. Send more O&L-themed shower photos please!
Deanna’s favorite item? “O&L-style flower cupcake toppers. I was so fortunate to stumble upon the grey and white printable wrapping paper you shared online.” Glad to oblige.
She says, “I filled in your print with color using PhotoShop, adding the splash of orange Jenna wanted, cut out the flower shape and glued it to a stick.” Look great, don’t they?
Deanna found further creative use for our printable wrapping paper, making backgrounds for the food and bag labels, plus the shower invite. Check out Deanna’s adaptations…
Having never attended a baby shower, I didn’t realize it was such a veritable food-fest. As good an excuse as any I guess. What’s your experience; is this typical of such occasions?
On that, I’d love to hear about other customer showers. And they needn’t be overtly O&L-themed. I realize that Jenna’s extravaganza is the exception. Mmmm…sugar cookies…
Perhaps I shouldn’t be writing this post just before lunch. Now, where was I? Oh yes. No matter where you look – and you can see all the shower photos here – it all matches.
I’m thinking Deanna could throw these parties for a living. Not sure if she’s open to offers. Of course, if you think your shower matches up, do email me the photos to prove it.
According to Deanna, “everyone thought it turned out really nice and they loved the O&L details, especially the people who bought jenna all her O&L George print registry gifts.”
“They all agreed that O&L has the cutest baby items ever and the fun prints make a great backdrop for a party.” And who are we to argue? Big thanks to Deanna for sharing.
