Officially recognized by the Roman Catholic Church, St. Valentine is known to be a real person who died around A.D. 270. Every year, Valentine is celebrated around the world, so it is not surprising to see pop-ups dedicated to this event. We found 5 pop-ups not to miss for S. Valentine's day.
//1.Diamonds and Flowers
According to Marilyn Monroe "Diamonds are girls' best friends", while flowers are an international way to express love. So the combination of the two seems perfect to celebrate Valentine's day! Tiffany & Co. is partnering with Flowerbx, a London based flower delivery service for an Instagram worthy pop-up. The set is a subway coach with the recognizable color of Tiffany. The pop-up, next door to the flagship currently under renovation, will sell roses in Tiffany-blue china vases, pink orchids in the bone-china Tiffany Paper Cup, as well as Boston ferns and potted maidenhair in sterling-silver flowerpots. The packaging is co-branded, so every purchase will have a Tiffany & Co. X Flowerbx floral wraps, tucked into Tiffany-blue bags.
//2.Getting married for free on Valentine's day
Denny's is an American table service diner-style restaurant chain. In Las Vegas, they offer the possibility to get married for free on Valentine's day.
