The holiday windows at Tiffany in Manhattan are as charming this year as they were last year and they may even edge out Bergdorf as my favorites for 2014!
|The outside of Tiffany & Co. is quite sparkly for the holidays!|
Each window featured a little scene of Manhattan and highlighted holiday traditions, such as the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree and a visit to Broadway, as well as landmark buildings like the Empire State Building, the Flatiron Building, and Tiffany itself! The building was dressed up too, in a wonderful display of lights that looked like New Year’s Eve fireworks with a yellow diamond at the center. Wow!
|A glamorous Tiffany firework outside the building!|
Many of the scenes had moving parts, such as little blue boxes that wiggled, a scrolling landscape background, or skaters spinning in a circle. Nestled within each scene—so beautiful in their varying shades of blue, lavender, and white—were gorgeous selections of Tiffany jewelry.
|My (then) boyfriend and I took a taxi to get married at City Hall so I am a big fan of this window!|
|My kind of cab!|
|A great scene of a couple looking at Tiffany windows. The present behind his back moves!|
|The engagement/wedding set they are looking at. Stunning!|
|I loved these skaters who moved around in a circle, in an homage to Rockefeller Center.|
|I also loved these two Babes on Broadway, surrounded by lights and jewels!|
|I adore the details in all the scenes, from the jewels...|
|...to the clothes on the figurines!|
On the 57th Street side of the building I noticed a window that must be a first for Tiffany—the scene showed what I’m assuming is a gay couple, perhaps with their child, enjoying cocoa and roasting marshmallows before a fire. What a way to say everyone is welcome at Tiffany’s!
|What may be a first for a Tiffany window...|

There is a sweet little video that shows all these scenes in motion over at the Tiffany home page. Stop by to see it. It will put you in the holiday mood!
