It’s shaping up to be marvelous Fall around here! We’re cheerfully preparing for a very busy holiday season. In 2011 we were featured as one of Oprah’s Favorite Things, as a result we’ve become very good at preparing desserts for shipping. We’ve also been on The Today Show and several other television shows, plus numerous magazines. Recently People Magazine named The Blue Owl as one of the 5 Best Places to Order a Thanksgiving Pie! What an honor it is to remain a continued favorite of celebrities and media, but most of all to be a favorite in your home.

This year brought an exciting new partnership with FoodyDirect, where we are now able to offer our amazing desserts with reduced shipping and deals. This is wonderful news for our faraway friends who have only dreamed of having treats from The Blue Owl at their holiday gatherings. The ordering process is now different, but still super easy, and I thought I would share it with you today.

First go our website gift shop. Scroll down to see 12 large, beautiful boxes filled with Blue Owl desserts. Click on the treat of your choice, and you will be taken to a page describing the treat and how it is shipped (frozen, etc.). Add it to your cart. At this point, you can continue to shop or check out by clicking your cart. If you have a FoodyDirect account, you can login or you can create one. You may also create a new account or continue as a guest. When you enter your email, a $10 coupon will appear in your inbox. As you enter your shipping information, you will be given the option to add a gift message.  Next enter your billing information, and schedule your order; there is the added convenience of having the option to order now, but schedule for a future delivery. We ship Monday through Thursday for 2-day or faster delivery. If you need your order by Friday, you need to order by 5p.m. (ET) on Tuesday.

If you’re confused at any point in time, or just need to ask a question, there is a Live Help option at the bottom of all screens. The old-fashioned at heart can also pick up the phone to be guided through the ordering process, just call 855-750-FOOD (3663) 9am to 5pm (PT) Monday through Friday.  The code BLUEOWL10 at checkout will provide you with an additional $10 off your order. Also, if you place a gift order through today, you will recieve $20 off your next purchase. I can’t think of a better way to say Merry Christmas than with a discount for you on a treat sent to someone you love!

Of course, for local folks, pickup is still available at our House Springs and Kimmswick locations, just call 636-464-3128 to discuss your needs. No matter what, we’re always here for you! Let’s celebrate together and remember that Dreams Really Do Come True!

All My Love,
