There was much laughter and amusement at Chic Celebrations towers recently when we stumbled upon a couple of online articles about what happens when people follow instructions for personalisation a little too closely.
One of the articles highlighted a subject very close to our hearts – cake! In particular, celebration cakes gone wrong. Customers had placed their orders, leaving special instructions for the baker to decorate the cake with a personalised message, as you can imagine, some of the results were hilarious – ‘Happy Birthday Mark with the Sea’, instead of ‘Happy Birthday Marc’… we mean really?
Another example of how easy it is to interpret someone’s order wrongly was the request for sprinkles, and yep you guessed it, ‘I want sprinkles’ was written in icing on top of the cake.
A literal failure.
And let’s not forget our favourite cake mishap for ‘Coach Tom with Big Purple Balls’ – we’re still laughing at that one!
Mishaps can really disappoint a party planner
So although these examples are cause for amusement, when something like this happens to you and impacts your celebration or event that you’ve spent hours, months or even years planning, it can be devastating.
You can rely on Chic Celebrations for complete accuracy with every order. We’ll be in constant contact with you about your bespoke ribbon design and always double-check any wording we’re unsure of before printing. If you want your ribbons printed in a language other than English, we’ll always send you a proof to check over first. That way we can avoid a birthday turning into a bar mitzvah! And if we do make a mistake, we’ll correct it for you free of charge.
We’re more than happy to take on board your special requests for creating new designs, adding or removing images and using a particular font to fit with your event.
Our customers love our sashes and the service we provide just as much as we love creating them, but don’t just take our word for it, check out our testimonials page and see the lovely things they have to say about us.
