Celebrate Valentine’s Day with Sweet Programs at Wave Hill

Saturday, February 14, 2015

Wave Hill offers the ultimate in low-stress, heart-friendly planning for a day with your sweethearts. Divide your time between the handsome winter landscape and two drop-in programs—a delicious cookie-decorating workshop and a charming  Family Art Project that starts in the fragrant Tropical House and ends with a session personalizing your own Valentine’s Day cards. Stop for a light meal in the Café, then cap it all off with a browse in The Shop at Wave Hill. You’ll find jeweler Erika Rosenbaum on hand from 11AM to 4PM; she’ll be bringing a selection of her designs, including (ahem!) heart pendants evoking twisting garden vines and organic wave forms. It’s a day for the ages—for all ages.

Valentine’s Day programs are free with admission to the grounds, unless otherwise indicated. No registration required.
