one of my favorite holiday events ...

No, it's not opening gifts or drinking eggnog or singing Christmas songs or decorating the trees or watching our annual classic holiday movie marathon or even leaving diets far behind and indulging in far too many cookies and treats. Well, those are favorite holiday events - but yet another one is the window shopping tour of the elegant Manhattan department store Christmas window displays! There are so so so many beautiful things to see - and there are simply way too many stores and windows to post them all. So, here is my favorite of 2018 ... the candied, iced and lavish display of "Bergdorf Goodies!"
 "Cotton Candy"
 "Rich Chocolate"
 "Fluorescent Desserts"
 "Frozen Automat"
"Licorice Fantasy"

"This year our artistic team strived to become faux pastry chefs, dishing up a wall-to-wall profusion of sculpted confections." says David Hoey, senior director of visual presentation at Bergdorf Goodman.

I thought they did a superb job!

There were so many other gorgeous windows ... but I'll leave you with one of my favorite 'runner up' stores ... the magnificent Tiffany & Co. Their theme this year was "The Holidays Made by Tiffany." Indeed! Such a witty - and sparkling! - holiday they created!
and a little close up of the glittering merchandise on display!
 I can't wait to see what magical wonders Christmas 2019 will bring!, go make something beautiful!
