I’m not going to spend this post discussing the food at the Blue Box Cafe because I’ve done that in previous posts. Instead I’m going to write a thank-you post.
On Thursday, June 28 I had the privilege of securing a reservation at the cafe on the fourth floor of the flagship store. My hotel was 17 blocks away which is a piece of cake….until downpours hit you about 3 blocks into your walk and you don’t have a hooded jacket or an umbrella.
Needless to say I arrived at the cafe drenched, I mean dripping in water. I was quite embarrassed but refused to miss the reservation. Both hostesses were so kind and understanding. They gave myself and my colleague some linen napkins and we made our way to the sixth floor bathroom. Never in my wildest dreams did I picture myself wringing out my shirt and pants in the bathroom of T&Co…..BUT IT HAPPENED.
You can see in the above photo the different hues in my pants because some parts started to dry while others were still soaked! The staff NEVER ONCE made me feel like I shouldn’t be there or should consider skipping the reservation. Instead they were accommodating and sympathetic as possible.
Nothing warms you better then a delicious cup of tea from Tiffany & Co. Despite being a little chilly, wet, and slightly embarrassed I enjoyed my time. This was the first time that I had one of the last reservations of the day so my colleague and I ended up being the only two in the restaurant which allowed us to explore a bit more and take additional photos.
The title couldn’t be more fitting because as soon as you step into the cafe you literally feel as though you are inside a blue box!
Speaking of Tiffany Blue, I discovered my dream office while there. HA! But no I mean….how cool would this be???
I mean those walls….that couch!!! When I envision heaven this is what it looks like. I’m going to shift gears a bit because I also want to give kudos to the vision in their renovations. There are so many cute designs.
One of my faves is this cute reading corner on the fourth floor! There are some great couches next to it, great to take a seat and observe the beauty of all the products on this floor.
The last thing I am going to share in this post is a few things from the launch of their Paper Collection. I love the graffiti on the outside of the building. It takes a historic building and adds a pop of color and a modern vibe.
I had the honor of walking through the unique solid sterling silver, copper, and glass greenhouse which is on the first floor. Now while lovely, this won’t be making my wish list ANY TIME soon. At $275,000 that is just a wee bit out of my price point. However, here are some cool facts about the greenhouse. It was hand-assembled by the finest Tiffany artisans. It took them 9 months and nearly 1,000 hours in the Tiffany hollowware workshop to bring it to life.
Until next time…here’s hoping a Tiffany gift is in your near future.
