Cranberries Naturally gets another invite to Oscars

Fort Langley business invited to Hollywood to present swag bags at pre-Oscar celebrity night

For a second time, Jasmine Marjanovic has been invited to bring her Cranberries Naturally products to be included in swag bags at the pre-Oscar celebrations in Hollywood. She also attended the exclusive event in 2012, where she met Dancing with the Stars’ Gilles Marini.

Fort Langley’s Jasmine Marjanovic has something Hollywood likes.

For a second time, Marjanovic has been invited to bring her Cranberries Naturally products for swag bags at the pre-Oscar celebrity night.

It was in 2012, when Cranberries Naturally went to Tinsletown to take part in the pre-Oscar celebrity gift room at the Avalon Hollywood night before the awards show. The evening is frequented mainly by B actors and many assistants to A-list actors.

Marjanovic brought a friend along for the fun and dolled up her famous cranberry jalepeno jelly and cranberry mustard – 120 bottles in total.

“We really did it up for the show,” she said. “ We made gold labels with the Canadian maple leaf on the label. We had tags attached that told the history of Cranberries Naturally and offering recipe ideas.”

All the bags made up for the celebrities were hand made.

The experience of hobnobbing with stars was a blast and Marjanovic said she’s even made some lifelong friends out of it.

Her favourite memory is being invited to Larry King’s party.

“I danced the night away with Drake’s producer,” she said. “It was a blast.”

But the cost of making up those special labels and shipping all that product to L.A. is too much to do again, she said.

She doesn’t want to be in the red for giving away the red berry.

But it doesn’t mean she won’t be out of the mix.

A higher up involved in the International Press Academy that is hostessing the 18th annual Satellite Awards on Feb. 23 has invited her to participate as a guest in Beverly Hills.

Those details are in the works right now.

But even if she doesn’t travel to Lala land, she’s still loving all the buzz she is getting from the invite.

“My phone actually got hot from all the texts and emails this week,” she said.

Cranberries Naturally opened in Fort Langley’s Gasoline Alley in 1999. Once working in sales with the Langley Times, she decided to pursue a dream to open up a boutique shop selling everything the red berry had to offer, all made in Canada.

Now her cranberry products are in 70 locations across B.C. and she’s trying to expand to Alberta and everywhere.

Her salad dressings, made with raw honey instead of sugar, and 100 per cent extra virgin olive oil, are her biggest hits.
