    The EP makes use of a number of themes related to Loren, Elvis Presley, Hawaii, and Hollywood. Loren explained on radio show The Sheena Metal Experience (LA Talk Radio) on November 4, 2010 the evolving of the concept:
    More Details Hide Details "When I was looking for just the right Christmas song to do, I thought of Elvis. And so when I started doing research to do a Christmas song of Elvis', I started seeing songs that really resonated with me, especially a song called "Loving You" which, when the time drew nearer when we were departing Hawaii, was so healing for me." The song "Loving You" was recorded at Lava Tracks Studio and represented Loren's moving from "my beloved Hawaii" to California. The selection of other Presley songs further fits the concept nature of the EP for, as Loren acknowledged, "Elvis and Hawaii go hand-in-hand". The artwork for the single and the EP, both designed by Katie Waronker's company Riot Structure, blended Hawaiian-inspired imagery including Presley's 1961 LP Blue Hawaii as inspiration for the "Merry Christmas Baby" cover art, and a depiction of Kalakaua Blvd in Waikiki (with Los Angeles-inspired billboards featuring Loren, photographed by Mark Arbeit) for the cover of the EP. The back of the EP includes a picture of Loren from the 1960s.
    In addition to "Merry Christmas Baby", Loren recorded "Loving You", "(Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear", and "One Night". "Loving You" and "(Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear" were both recorded in 2010, with a sample of "Loving You" appearing on Loren's blog two months prior to the release. "One Night" was recorded in the 1980s at Amigo Studios and, like many of the songs on her 2009 album Magic from these recording sessions, had not been previously released.

    More Details Hide Details The series has been described as "different from previous U.S. rock 'n' roll programs.

In an article reporting the singer's debut 'Dr Pepper's Donna Gets a Movie Part' appearing in the Galveston Daily News, the author wrote "It didn't take long for Donna, Dr Pepper's new singing star to make her mark. She has a feature singing part in the movie that also stars Jody McCrea, Frankie Avalon, Annette Funicello, Morey Amsterdam, Don Rickles, John Ashley, Buddy Hackett and several newcomers to the screen". The debut was heavily promoted by the company. In the same newspaper, for example, advertisements for a "Muscle Beach Party" organized by Dr Pepper Bottling Co. of Galveston and held at the State Theatre appeared, where patrons would screen the film and receive Dr Pepper, "a gesture on the part of the firm to have the public see Donna Loren, Dr Pepper's new singing star".

A full page advertisement/congratulations to Mid-Continent Bottlers from Dr Pepper featured Loren with the note "Petite and lovely Donna Loren, nationally famous radio television and recording star, will entertain you with an exciting show". Away from Dr Pepper, Loren was a regular performer at concerts and shows during much of the decade throughout the country. These included at the teenage nightclub The Million Cellars (with Glen Campbell also on the bill) and performances at the Pasadena Teen Dances, and concerts and shows with other performers such as Bobby Sherman at Rock 'N Roll City.
