Macy’s Flying Reindeer! (iPhriday)

How fabulous it was to look above me in Macy’s to see Santa and his reindeer flying around New York City, complete with the Statue of Liberty, the Chrysler Building and of course Macy’s!

Macy's Sleigh Decorations

And there wasn’t just the one of these, there were more of these on the floor, each with a different setting. Given the sheer size of these decorations, where on earth are they all stored? And how?





Macy’s Christmas Baubles! (iPhriday)

On visiting Macy’s last Christmas, there’s no denying I had more than a little Christmas Bauble Envy on seeing what they had hanging from their ceilings.

What I found most astonishing with these decorations is that they looked so absolutely spectacular but as you can see here, there wasn’t an over abundance of baubles, just perfectly chosen and placed ones.

Just goes to show, one can’t simply place one’s baubles willy-nilly, it must be well thought out and structured!





Just ONE of Macy’s Christmas Windows! (iPhriday)

This is just one of the window displays Macy had last Christmas. At the time, although I didn’t quite understand the whole “interstellar” concept, I did appreciate all the attention to detail. The windows were just gorgeous!

And of course, now as I see my photos on the big screen, I finally see the story written at the bottom of the window. Hey, it was New York City and we were getting a really early start to the Boxing Day sales so cut me some slack please, lol!




A Christmas Frame! (Weekly Travel Theme)

Aisla from over at Where’s My Backpack has given us the challenge word of FRAME this week. As I scrolled through my archives looking for something suitable I came across my New York Christmas photographs of Macy’s Christmas windows.


Each window was a different planet portraying a different Christmas scene. Each so different. Each so spectacular. Each framed so elegantly.
