Snobbish Thoughts July 2012

The 2012 Summer Olympics kick off tonight!

We’re getting really excited about the start of the Summer Olympics, and are eagerly anticipating tonight’s opening ceremony! Called the “Isles of Wonder,” this year’s ceremony promises to be a dazzling spectacle, complete with 15,000 performers, dancing, fireworks, and lots of surprises. Although most of the details are still being kept a secret, we do know that the show will begin with a barnyard scene, “Green and Pleasant,” featuring actual farm animals!

Tell us, will you be watching the ceremony tonight? Even if you’ll be celebrating from the comfort of your bed (as we will be!), you can still get into the spirit with our festive London bedding!

Cuddledown’s “Naked Pillow” catalog caption contest

Cuddledown Fall 2012 catalog cover

Caption our Cuddledown Fall 2012 catalog cover!

At Cuddledown, all of our pillows, until properly dressed with a pillowcase, are referred to internally as “naked” pillows. With our Fall 2012 catalog featuring said pillows in our Annual Pillow Sale, our creative team came up with this “out of the box” catalog cover!

Whether you find it humorous, or over the top – you have to admit, it’s memorable!

Although we wrote  our own copy, we decided it’d be fun to have our customers and fans post their own catalog cover caption on our Facebook page!

You have from now until 8:00 a.m. July 17 to post your caption. The winner with the best caption (to be determined by our panel of experts) will win a pair of Cuddledown’s premium 700 fill power down pillows!  So put your best “Mad Men” ad agency creativity to work and have fun!

We encourage the use of humor, but we will reserve the right to edit posts as necessary :)
