Strolling down Bloor Street to admire the Tiffany's Christmas windows was one of my favourite holiday rituals when I lived in Toronto. Their delicate laser cut paper displays, always thoughtfully executed, displayed their latest and greatest diamond pieces with a touch of whimsy. It was worth the inevitably chilly walk.
Three years later, Tiffany & Co. opened their first stand alone store in Edmonton at West Ed (read about it here
) and I was thrilled to be reunited with the brand once more.
This holiday they brought their window displays to life by hosting a media 'Dinner at Tiffany's'
event at the elegant Fairmont Hotel MacDonald
. Guests were invited to try on coveted jewels such as the newly released Tiffany T collection
- which is truly spectacular to behold. After a glass of champagne, french doors leading into the Edmonton Room were opened to reveal a banquet table with perfectly lined robins egg blue boxes and oversized baby's breath centre pieces. After the initial gasp of delight (and a thousand Instagram photos later) we were treated to a decadent meal and fantastic conversations.
Thanks again to Laura Smythe from Tiffany & Co. WEM
and Sarah Geddes from Sass Communications
for a very memorable evening I won't soon forget.
