A dinner party that revolves around florals and jewelry…it sounds like our kind of event. A few weeks ago, we gathered a group of our favorite people on the rooftop of The Jane Hotel to celebrate Tiffany & Co.’s newest Paloma Picasso collection. We teamed up with a favorite florist (and “it-girl” of ours) – Taylor Tomasi Hill – to throw a summer soirée worth raving about.
We swiftly fell in love with this collection – an unsurprising occurence considering it’s the brainchild of designer Paloma Picasso – daughter of Pablo Picasso and Françoise Gilot (talk about good genes). The jewelry boasts European influences with exotic touches – a picture perfect mix.
Fittingly, we created a theme of the Moroccan persuasion, and the table was bedecked with gold flatware, Italian linen napkins, red Moroccan waterglasses, tufts of moss on which jewelry was placed and calligraphy menus. The room was ensconced with cream linen pillows and small candles in votives, and Taylor’s peonies and ranunculus lined the bar to perfection.
As we enjoyed a menu that included Moroccan couscous and pomegranate glazed salmon, we simultaneously playfully tried on jewelry with our guests. We now believe that jewelry should be passed around at every dinner we throw…perhaps next time Paloma herself will just have to make an appearance.
