The holiday windows at Tiffany & Company in New York this year are spectacular! There’s nothing like gazing into a stunning, fantastical, colorful, and bejewelled vignette to get the (commercial) Christmas spirit in high drive. Designed around a carousel theme this year, the windows on 57th Street and 5th Avenue will attract thousands upon thousands of sightseers on a daily basis from now until Christmas. It doesn’t cost you anything to enjoy them, so why not?

On the zebra, huge floral brooches…

…stone encrusted bird…

…Santa’s sled jampacked with little Tiffany blue boxes (did you know it is a PRIVATE and exclusive pantone color?) and a pair of diamond earrings casually draped on the sled…

…a lamp post in snow-covered Central Park…

…diamond ring and necklace.

Massive rocks.

The facade of Tiffany’s replicated for one of the windows.

The giant snowflake, photographed from the 5th floor of Tiffany’s. Across the way, Bergdorf Goodman Department Store.

I wasn’t the only one taking photos (notice the humongous blackboard to block reflections on the glass)..

…as these guys snapped professional shots. :)

Previous post on Tiffany windows during the holidays here. Happy Thanksgiving to all and I hope you have a wonderful start to a peaceful holiday season ahead!

    Hi MM, will be going to NYC on Saturday after Thanksgiving na. Will just watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade on TV. Busily looking for discounted tickets to Hugh Jackman’s Show which comes highly recommended by my SIL. But I hate going to the city by myself. Also, asked my friend to show me 5th avenue because I remembered you mentioning the christmas decors a few posts before. Now with the above post, I certainly will go see the window decorations. Too bad no EB here this time. Will be back in Washington state next week. Happy Thanksgiving to you and family and to sister. I remember who she is now. One year ahead of me in high school. Now, that does age me doesn’t it?

    Hi MM – so which one did you get for Mrs MM & the Teen? ;-)

    Funny that your article is on Tiffany and yet your snowflake photo shows the competitor, Van Cleef & Arpels LOL.

    The color is known as Tiffany blue (along with Wedgewood blue)…

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    That bird on what seems to be an amethyst (beside the horse) is a reproduction of Jean Schlumberger’s “Bird on a Rock” brooch. The only difference with the original is that instead of an amethyst they set it with the 128.54 carat Tiffany Yellow diamond. Said to be part of the French Crown Jewels.

    The display’s awesome.

    Thank you for sharing those great photos! I’ts a strange feeling to see the Christmas decorations on a snowless pavement which I normally associate with in New York during winter. I’ve never been there for the Thanksgiving but I can imagine how childlike one feels seeing all the glitter and really spectacular displays. Wow! Fantastique!
    How was the Lady Gaga workshop? Did you or the Teen find anything nakakagaga??
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and the family! And extra wishes to Sister, thank you for your untiring volunteer work at the USquare : ))

    I wonder what’s with the carousel theme. Paragon in Singapore also has the same theme -carousel and horses.

    I saw the window displays last year and they are indeed drool worthy. One should visit NYC during winter at least once in one’s lifetime. =)

    It’s a real treat to gaze at the Holiday windows in NYC. The Tiffany carousel theme is so gorgeous. I hear the Bergdorf’s windows this year are truly fabulous. Thank you for the photos, MM!

    Tiffany Blue not printed in Pantone swatches. Only the robins can duplicate, perhaps.

    Are you a Filipino Carl? If you are, then we are extra proud of you!

    Thanks MM for the wonderful photos.
