Breakfast at Tiffany's



I didn't actually eat breakfast outside of Tiffany's, but I couldn't resist using the movie title for this post about the holiday décor at Tiffany's. The weather has started to turn to winter today, but last Sunday it was still late autumn and I paid a visit to the Tiffany windows with my college roommate, Jane. Jane is often scouting both holiday décor and coffee shops for Buttercupland and has contributed some great ideas. When she said "You've got to see the Tiffany windows" I knew that was the walking destination for the day. I love this miniature festive tablescape set with gems and silver.
 
This beautiful window gives us two watches -- perfect for Christmas giving -- and the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center in miniature. The windows are relatively small, and every detail is perfect.

This window holds a beautiful castle set in jewels. Yes, that's me in a semi-selfie reflected in the window. We were here before noon last Sunday to avoid the crowds. Tiffany stands at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 57th Street and it's one of the most crowded shopping areas in New York City.

This is the jeweled décor on the exterior of the building. 

I'm still planning to write about two more books this week, but I am in the midst of a writer's block that reminds me of term papers in college. I'm not sure why, but I am having a difficult time putting my post together. In the meantime I want to share pictures of New York while I continue to struggle with my book post.

As ever, thanks for visiting. Keep calm, take care and savor the season.

I always enjoy the windows at Tiffany's!

I imagine this area will get more crowded now with the President-elect living next door!
