My husband and I took our annual walk around New York last week, taking in Christmas window displays, trees, and lights. We've done this every year since moving here, and I always look forward to it.
I took lots of pictures, of course. Come join me on my NYC holiday tour!
The general route of our NYC holiday tour is up Fifth Avenue, starting in the Flatiron District, and then continuing up Madison Avenue once we get to Bergdorf Goodman. It's a long, but fun walk. This year, the weather was really warm, which was wonderful!
One of the stores I look forward to every year is Club Monaco. Their display featured stacked champagne glasses in the shape of a tree and stars.
Macy's location is super busy, and I'm not the biggest fan of their windows, so I may skip them next year ... stay tuned! 😉
We took the opportunity to snap a few pics!
I also loved the windows at De Beers, which were filled with London landmarks. The cute decorations were actually simple cardboard cutouts decorated with navy paper and white puffy paint. I want to use this idea in my own home next year!
After Bergdorf Goodman, we switched over to Madison Avenue. The windows at Barneys are always really interesting and different. The theme was "Chillin' Out," and there was an ice carver in one of the windows (see left pic below). Another window had a brightly colored race track with cars zipping around the curves. My pictures don't do these windows justice.
We took a detour for a late lunch next. I wanted to stop at Serendipity for frozen hot chocolate, but there was a 45 minute wait, which wasn't going to happen. We ate delicious pizza at nearby Patsy's instead, then stopped by Bloomingdales on Lexington Avenue. The back of the building had a Star Wars display.
Dolce & Gabanna had a beautiful display. They also had another store across the street, and the windows looked pretty from the distance, but I was too tired to cross the street. 😉
What is your favorite window or holiday display?
