You’ve seen Target-themed playrooms and weddings at Costco. One mom took her daughter’s obsession with ALDI to the next level. Meaghan Singleton threw her 4-year-old daughter, Saylor, an ALDI themed party and she didn’t leave one detail out.
Singleton’s inspiration for the party was Saylor. When discussing birthday ideas, Saylor asked if they could go to ALDI. Singleton said, “I got a lot of my ideas while on my almost daily stops to ALDI. I walked around the store collecting empty boxes, googled ALDI signs I could relate to Saylor, and the 3 biggest things ALDI means to people; quarters, reusable bags and the speedy check out. I even copied their price tag slogan on the cupcake tier.”
The Aldi-themed birthday party had it all from ALDI posters that look like actual signage in the store, 25-cent cookies, a cash register-inspired fruit bar, ALDI’s Winking Owl wine, and a three-tiered cupcake display that reads “Saylor Loves ALDI.”
Singleton took it one step further by incorporating ALDI in Saylor’s annual photo shoot. She said, “Every year we take photos of the kids to watch their growth and always include what they loved the most that year. So, we had to do her photo shoot in ALDI.” Long time Singleton family friend Pamela Webb, owner of Webb Trio captured Saylor in all her glory.
To top it off, Aldi found out and sent Saylor a handwritten note and a box full of ALDI goodies to help celebrate her special day.
