Event planner and Oh Happy Day founder Jordan Ferney’s goal is simple: Be the best party resource on the Internet. She’s not messing around, either. Her project ideas are bright, bold, playful, and her online store has everything you need to throw the most on-trend, creative, artistic party in the history of parties. To help introduce her new collection of Oh Happy Day Signature Christmas cards, we asked her some very important questions.
What inspired your Oh Happy Day Signature Christmas cards?
We looked at what brings us the most joy about the holiday season. For example, choosing our Christmas tree and tying it to the top of our vintage red Fiat. It’s the cutest thing ever!
How would you describe your collection?
Happy, fun, iconic.
Do you have a favorite card from it? If so, which and why?
Definitely the stickers. Puffy stickers remind me of my childhood!
What was your work process like to create the cards in your collection?
Our design team took iconic symbols of the holidays and added a colorful and quirky twist.
What are your favorite holiday colors and patterns?
I like to take a non-traditional approach to the holidays—super colorful and bright or a nice blend of mint, coral, and pink.
Who would you send each of your Oh Happy Day Signature Christmas cards to?
I live far away from lots of my friends and family, so I always try to send them a card around the holidays to feel connected. I especially love the idea of sending something tangible (like the stickers) to the little ones. They always get such a kick out of things like that and I get big points next time I see them.
What are some of your favorite holiday traditions?
My family has loads of holiday traditions, from special family recipes to parties we have every year. One of my favorites is getting a new pair of pajamas every year on Christmas eve. It’s always a treat to get to open something the day before Christmas.
What are you most looking forward to doing this holiday?
ALL OF THE FOOD! The holidays are my favorite time of year because I just get to relax, snuggle up, and eat all my favorite things with my favorite people.
Tell us a little about your blog/site and brand.
Oh Happy Day started as a blog 11 years ago and has since grown into a lifestyle website and party shop with a team of 12 full-time employees. We love all things colorful and fun and are always looking for fresh ideas to share with our followers. We recently carried our obsession with color into our newest project, Color Factory, an exhibit of immersive color experiences which launched in San Francisco in August 2017.
