Cake, Cards, Clashing Plaids and a Competitor Piñata!

 A creative cake, inspired by The Rally Jacket.

Kevin Rabbitt, our CEO at 3 Day Blinds, loves to cheer the team on in all kinds of fun, creative ways.  So, he was a bit surprised when the entire team, including our hundreds of designers, managers and showroom personnel in the field, turned the tables on him yesterday afternoon, to celebrate his 40th birthday.  The folks from the Irvine headquarters (at least those who were not on the phones helping customers) gathered in the lunch room and cheered when Kevin walked in and swooped up his son, Michael, in his arms.

Then, the creativity and unique personalities that make up our team were on display as he opened his cards and gifts.

Special thanks to Tikie Holewski, Mary Kay Stam, Mike Stea and Natalie Niverson for their stealth and flawless execution!

The crowd had a blast – but soon it was time to get back to work!

Customer Review for Shannon Helling

Dear Shannon,

My expression of thanks and appreciation are long overdue. I am so thankful for your highly professional design consultation and efficient ordering of the sun screen shade for our large picture window at Healing Through Prayer, office of Christian Science practitioners, in Montrose, California, this past spring. 

The installation went very well, and now that it is well past the summer solstice, we are using the shade regularly, since the lower position of the sun makes the shade necessary to cut down glare and heat. 

When you came to measure the window and to show me the available fabrics, and so on, you were prompt, courteous, efficient, friendly, patient and well prepared to answer my questions. You gave me appropriate and most helpful guidance, while also allowing me sufficient time to consider my own reasoning and preferences. I feel that you are exceptionally good at assessing the design elements to be considered and offering sound advice. You are an excellent listener and were respectful of my needs and perspective as a customer. 

I am so pleased with my experience with 3 Day Blinds, and with your work in particular, that I am interested in having you come to my home to help me with a window treatment for the family room portion of my kitchen.

Thank you, Shannon. I hope that business is going well and that this season is being good to you.

Sincerely and gratefully,

Customer Review for Deborah Anderson

Hi, Deborah,

The blinds were installed yesterday and WE LOVE THEM!

We really appreciate your expertise in pointing out those which would best fit our needs and desires. We love the soft light that filters through and we are really glad you gently suggested the ‘latte’ color instead of the white.  The color is PERFECT.  (I think we would have hated the whiter choice … too stark, etc.)

You recall that we decided upon an overhead mount on the sliding glass doors so the blinds would cover the obstruction of the door handle.  The blinds look good but I think they would look perfect if there were some sort of a ‘bar’ or small (appropriate looking) ‘valance’ to hide the hardware to which they are attached.  Do you have a picture or a suggestion of something simple that you think would accomplish this?  Can you mail or email us a picture of what might give those blinds the “finishing touch” they need?

Thanks again for adding such pleasure to our home,
Elsie and Cal,

Customer Recommendation for Kathy Trojan

Hi Kathy,

I wanted you to know that our blinds were installed about 10 days
ago. The gentleman that installed them was very polite. He did his work
quickly, efficiently and was very respectful to us and our home.

The new blinds finished our windows very nicely and give us the versatility
we wanted to enjoy our beautiful mountain views and to control the light and
heat from the sun.

Thank you for taking time to discuss the options available to us. Thank you
for your expert advice and for your meticulous measuring and ordering of our

Our experience with you and 3 Day Blinds has been very positive. Thank you
for all your good work!

I only do this when I feel I have received great service and great
value.   Yes, you have my permission to post my letter or excerpts of it.  I’m
