I love the holiday decorations in New York City.
They make me laugh. They make me smile. They make me happy.
Ok, I admit it. I’m truly a sucker for holiday decor. Schmaltzy, cutesy, clever, sophisticated, red and green or odd ball mixes. I’m always amazed when I see “decor” created from found objects like these Jerry Cans in Chelsea Market.
Not sure why I am so entranced with the festive lights and hoop-de-doo.. Is it the creativity? The promise of a special time with family and friends. The end of a year and beginning of new. Time to reflect, refresh and enjoy.
Maybe because I don’t do that much decorating at home any more, operating under the philosophy that “less is more.” A few Paperwhites. Some wonderful reindeer that a dear and special friend gave me. I’m into “keeping it simple.”
It’s not “simple” in New York. It always amazes me to see how New York jazzes up for the holidays….and tourists like me….
Here’s collection of holiday scenes that attracted my attention in the Big Apple this year. Wishing you all a peaceful and happy season.
Seen in a hip Japanese clothing store in SoHO.
Tiffany’s went over the top this year. Tourist posing for photo.
Meandering the top floor of Bergdorf’s on Fifth Avenue is always a visual treat.
Some of the best tabletop ideas come from NYC
New York at night from a Bicycle Rickshaw. Such fun.
Beautiful Jewelry display in the window of a store on West Broadway in Soho.
French Macarons on the Upper East Side. Luscious.
Gotta go to Chelsea Market to see this.
ABC Carpet and Home was thinking “pink” this year.
Spotted on the High Line. Do you think they know it is December? Someone needs to tell them.
I always go to see Rockefeller Center. The tree is spectacular.
And look at this wall of lips…..in a window in the Meatpacking District in the Diane Von Furstenberg shop.
