The lights on Madison Avenue
The balcony at the Waldorf Astoria
The Palace Hotel decorations...What a beautiful tree!
Decorations in the courtyard of the Palace Hotel. The spires in the background are St. Patrick's Cathedral.
I was doing a few errands in Midtown and had the opportunity to visit a few places somewhat off my regular path. The Waldorf is one of them -- nothing like cutting through a beautiful hotel to get out of the cold for a few minutes -- and got to take photos of the decorations. Knew my blog friends would enjoy a tour of the lights of Midtown. The Waldorf has a lovely tea and it's now on my "list" for 2011. Wouldn't that be a wonderful way to spend a snowy Sunday afternoon? My friend Mary and I choose a celebration each year, instead of gifts and that's what I will be proposing for our treat.
I've enjoyed taking photos of the holiday decorations to share with all of you. I really stop and look at how beautiful the city is and not just fly by on my way to a new errand. Thanks for the impetus to "stop and smell the roses." Much appreciated!
Now it's time to write a few more cards -- I think I'm the slowest card writer -- and have a cup of candy cane green tea. For those who've asked, the tea is good -- not as good as a cup of hot cocoa with lots of mini-marshmallows -- but good and very healthy. Hope you're having a sweet Sunday night.
