Celebrating Valentine's Day at Tiffany & Co.

Posted by

It was all romance Wednesday night at the Tiffany & Co. flagship store where I was thrilled to host the Valentine's Day "Written in the Stars" event. It was an evening for couples to celebrate love. How beautiful was this scene in Soho?

With February 14th on the way, we set up the ultimate Valentine's Day crafting experience. Madame Chocolate  and One Girl Cookies sweetened the night by bringing heart-shaped chocolates and sugary confections for our guests to pile in treat boxes. Next, everyone was welcomed to personalize their boxes with lots of Martha Stewart Crafts stickers, ribbons, papers, punches, and tags. Then calligrapher Deborah Nadel added a finishing touch to everything from the treat boxes and tags, to love notes on Tiffany cards. To capture this night of romance PhotoOp set up one of their great photo booths so couples could go home with a fun memory.

Between crafting and indulging, of course our couples also got to drool over all the beautiful jewelry! What were they eyeing? Rings, wedding bands, bridal party gifts, just-because gifts, and more. Martha Stewart Weddings associate style editor Melissa Colgan even singled out some wonderful Tiffany gift suggestions since we have less than a week until Valentine's Day. (Thanks, Melissa for the beautiful displays!)

But the BEST part of the night? One special couple, Linda Lewis and Dharell Mosby, got engaged right there at the store! Can't beat that for a night of romance! See how the whole night unfolded in the photos below.
