Aladdin Superfan "Jeanie" Encourages Everyone, Everywhere to Have Fun and Get Together More Often, with Mason Entertaining Collection to Make It Easy

SEATTLE, May 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Recent trends and social media channels imply that entertaining at home requires perfectly set tables, carefully curated menus, and handmade decorations. Visuals posted by over-achieving hosts are everywhere, leaving many people holding themselves to the highest standards of party perfection.

But in real life, schedules are busy and time is often crunched – who has time for handmade seating cards? The remedy to this entertaining insanity? Aladdin®, a brand of PMI, once known for creating beloved lunchboxes, is introducing "Jeanie," the original no stress party host and their spokesperson for "less planning, more partying." To spread the word, Jeanie is infiltrating social circles everywhere – like Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, Facebook, and Instagram – encouraging women to keep it simple, be more spontaneous, and get together more often.

Through Jeanie's "Less Stress, More Togetherness" messaging and quick-hit "not planning" tips, Aladdin is giving busy women permission to skip the anxiety and cut to the fun part of entertaining.  From reality TV viewing parties to book club to kids' birthdays, no-fuss gatherings that focus on sharing moments with friends and family are in. Painstaking planning is out the window.

"There are times for the 'Perfect Party,' and then there are times when the pressure of achieving entertaining perfection makes a solo night on the couch seem like a better choice," said Jenn Polanski, Aladdin Marketing Manager at Pacific Market International. "Through Jeanie's humor and her charming-imperfect tips, we're reminding women to stop holding themselves to such a high standard, and to just have fun with their friends and family. That's what get-togethers are really about. So, between Jeanie's fresh perspective and our new Mason Entertaining collection, we're hoping to make it easier to entertain, with style, more often."

The new Mason Entertaining collection is Jeanie's go-to for making everyday entertaining a breeze. The line features multiple beverage styles designed for mixing and matching to curate an entertaining set for gatherings of any size. It includes:

  • Shatterproof and dishwasher safe 2-Gallon Plastic Mason Dispensers for cocktails, lemonade, and sweet tea;
  • 1-Gallon Glass Mason Dispensers ideal for brewing and serving sun tea;
  • 2.5 QT Mason Pitchers, for everything from water for the table to mimosas;
  • Classic Insulated Mason Tumblers with smoothie sized straws for blended drinks in 16oz and (new) 32oz sizes;
  • Durable 16oz Mason Cups sold in sets of 4, available in 5 colors, for mixing and matching
  • Accessories for the Mason Tumblers and Cups, including drink-through lids, straw lids, and colorful swirl straws to personalize your collection
