Category Archives: Holiday
There is no place like New York around the holidays. Everywhere you look, you’ll find gorgeous lights, trees, and holiday displays. Some of the department stores in Midtown don’t stop at fashioning festive window displays; they transform the store facade itself into a display.
Look for more holiday displays in the next couple of weeks. We have a nice looking tree already up in South Street Seaport and they light the Wall Street tree next week. On a side note, I’ve been lured up to Midtown more times in the past two weeks than the whole time we’ve lived here. I’m like a moth to a flame with these damn lights and holiday displays…
After the Macy’s Parade balloon inflation, we zipped over to check out some store windows. Well, I checked out store windows, while Kate checked out the selection of Diane Von Furstenburg dresses at Bloomingdales.
The themes were Alice in Wonderland and Fantastic Mr. Fox interrupted by interludes of concentrated color and texture. I liked the intense detail of the window featuring paper.
This window, decked out in metal and mirror, was a real crowd pleaser.
These green horses were richly textured. Kind of reminded me of Swamp Thing.
The wooden window, with it’s dizzying level of detail, was probably my favorite. The twisting staircases leading to one absurdity after another were gorgeous.

The Fantastic Mr. Fox windows across the street were so adorable that we rushed out to see the movie today. Highly recommended! Kate posted some pics of the Fantastic Mr. Fox windows over at Embarrassment of Riches.
Hope everyone had a good holiday!
