Restaurant Impossible/Chef Robert Irvine fans worldwide saw the designs of Dallas artist/entrepreneur Jenny Jafek-Jones, owner of handmade paper flower company The Crimson Poppy, when her decorative wall panels were installed at Oklahoma City’s Urban Roots on Episode 308.
Dallas, Texas, USA., April 27, 2014 - (PressReleasePoint) - Restaurant Impossible and Chef Robert Irvine fans worldwide saw the handmade paper flower designs of Dallas artist and entrepreneur Jenny Jafek-Jones, owner of The Crimson Poppy (thecrimsonpoppy dot com), when her decorative wall panels were installed at Oklahoma City’s Urban Roots on Episode 308 of Restaurant Impossible (air date 4/9/14).
Jafek-Jones says the opportunity to provide a decor piece for the Urban Roots restaurant/entertainment space arose after she saw a call for volunteers to work on the show in Oklahoma City and responded by email. The volunteer coordinator saw information about The Crimson Poppy in Jafek-Jones' signature line and forwarded it on to Restaurant Impossible designer Cheryl Torrenueva.
"The assistant contacted me to see if I’d be able to put together some wall art within the time frame and limited budget of the show," noted Jafek-Jones. "I said I would love to try, and the rest was history. It was a fun challenge and an amazing experience, and the staff of Restaurant Impossible could not have been more pleasant to work with."
The designer is equally excited about the inclusion of her Miniature Paper Flower Hair Combs in an exclusive celebrity gift bag being prepared by California-based The Artisan Group in Honor of Earth Day 2014.
The gift bag will be delivered to some of Hollywood’s most eco-conscious celebrities, including Jessica Alba, Emma Watson, Edward Norton, Adrian Grenier, Will.i.am, Robert Redford, Leonardo DiCaprio, Drew Barrymore, Woody Harrelson, Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Julianne Moore, Ted Danson, Meryl Streep, Cameron Diaz, John Mayer, Geena Davis, Barbra Streisand, Alicia Silverstone, Ian Somerhalder, Lisa Kudrow, Mark Ruffalo, Natalie Portman, Rachel McAdams, and Neil Patrick Harris.
Jafek-Jones creates her paper art out her Dallas, Texas studio, which was built for her by her husband and featured in the fall 2013 issue of Studios Magazine. The artist is enthusiastic about sharing her knowledge and offers classes for groups of eight or less. She notes, "The classes are popular for wedding parties learning how to make paper flowers for centerpieces or a group of friends who want a fun and creative afternoon."
