Happy Holidays from 3 Day Blinds!

The holidays are a fun and festive time here in the office and around the entire nationwide team at 3 Day Blinds.  Office potluck breakfasts and lunches, pranks like the accounting office and marketing team pulled off include having offices and desks completely wrapped like Christmas gifts (including the ceiling!) and the floors covered in fake snow!

Today marked our annual holiday party, and while it was a fun and festive occasion like always, our Executive Vice President Tikie Holewski led us in a moment of reflection of the events of last week in Newtown, Connecticut:

It was followed by a very poignant rendition of “Silent Night” performed by our own Darrell Wilson from the IT Department.

After taking our time to reflect, the festivities began. We started our “competitions” including Best Ornament, which went to Candace Arellano of the Appointment Sales Team, who fashioned a window with miniature Hobbled Soft Roman Shade underneath a pair of our Custom Drapery Panels in one of our top selling fabrics, Maison/Cafe Au Lait.

Here is a close-up of Candace’s winning ornament.

There was an ugly sweater parade, here are some of the “fashions” that were on display in the office today:

Melissa Caton and Jenni Su from the Merchandising department show off some of their Christmas fashions. Check out Melissa’s earrings!


Some of the ugly sweaters on display from the Senior Team through Customer Care and Appointment Sales!

Here is some of the amazing decor that popped up in the office during the last few weeks:


Appointment Sales and the entire Call Center here in Irivine was filled with the holiday spirit! Here is the winning entry for Best Decorations, Cubicle:


After all of the excitement of the awards, the talent portion of our day got going!

Were there some amazing performances, including a 6-year-old’s solo to One Direction’s “You Don’t Know You’re Beautiful” and some fantastic Jazz Christmas music provided by members of our Irvine team!

Some of the performances brought the house down, like 3 Day Blinds’ Christmas Parody for Santa. Eyvet Walters, Christa Wadley, Bashar Saman, David Andexler, Jennifer Venezuela, Ramona Seneviratne, Amber Neeley, Yanna Washington and Will Padiernos put on a show unlike anything seen at the Irvine Headquarters:

Another team giving them some competition is several of the ladies from the Accounting and Merchandising Departments, lip syncing “The Chipmunk Song” much to many of the office’s delight:

Overall, this year has been a fun and fulfilling one at 3 Day Blinds. We are proud to have such an amazing team here at our Corporate Headquarters, as well as all around the nation in our amazing team of Design Consultants, Installers and Managers.

As 2012 winds to a close, we at 3 Day Blinds would like to wish you and yours a very happy holiday season, and a very Happy New Year!

Customer Recommendation for Lia Kushnir


Dear Lia,
Mike installed my roller shades this week and I wanted to tell you how much I like them.  I am especially pleased with the living room shades.  If you recall, I was very nervous about the fabric but as it turns out you were right, they were the perfect choice. So I just wanted to say thank you for all the help, advice and support through this process.  I think you have great instincts for seeing what is possible and I appreciate all your guidance and patience us.
Happy Holidays!
Thanks again,
Melonie D.

Customer Recommendation for Michelle Plunkett


Recently I had your company install window blinds on 5 windows, in my remodel-in-process house that I had just moved into.I am happy with the product, but more than that, I was so pleased with the service provided to me by Michelle Plunkett.  She went “above and beyond” to get the right blinds ordered and installed as quickly as possible, as she knew I was pretty stressed out with the move.  She was punctual, thorough, professional and very nice – I will continue to work with her as I buy more window coverings.

Customer Recommendation for Valerie Pugliese


To Whom it May Concern,
Valerie Pugliese came to my town house on Saturday, December 1, 2012.  She arrived shortly before the appointed time of 9:00 a.m.  She was outgoing and friendly, but also very businesslike; there was no wasted time.  She listened carefully to what I was looking for in terms of quality, décor and price, and showed me samples that suited my needs.  Valerie did not try to persuade me to purchase window treatments that were beyond my budget.  Nor did she omit the “fine print” that some salespersons do in order to close the deal.  The installation is still to be scheduled, and I trust it will go as smoothly as Valerie’s part of the transaction.

Customer Recommendation for Bonnie Campbell


You were right, I love the way my new blinds look, I guess I worried for no reason at all!  They do just what I wanted them to do. Thanks for all your input in helping me to decide what I wanted.

I am looking forward to getting my bedroom windows done as well, once my budget allows it!
