Before my boyfriend and I came down to Florida to spend Christmas and New Year's with our parents, we went to see the Holiday windows in the city. As always, they did not disappoint.
Macy's celebrated 50 years of Charlie Brown with a cute story. I didn't grow up with Charlie Brown so it was not super interesting to me but I did like the concept and enjoyed the cute-ness of the windows.
Lord & Taylor made good use of the scaffolding around their store and made it work to their advantage by decorating it with beautiful garlands and lights.
Saks Fifth Avenue stole the show with a spectacular light display projected on their building (next to St. Patrick's Cathedral) and choreographed to the Nutcracker. It ran every 10 minutes and it was absolutely unbelievable. I was a mad house trying to walk in this areas because it is right by the tree at Rockefeller and several crosswalks were closed down to direct traffic. It was a mad house. But worth it.
The window displays of Saks were designed around the concept of a Winter Palace. Also awesome.
Last but not least, we went to go see the windows at Bergdorf Goodman. They were basically made out of rhinestones! I don't even want to think about how long those took to make. The photos do not get close do doing them justice because these windows sparkled incredibly.
I can't wait to see what they all do next year!
