I love the city at Christmas. I’m a sucker for the lights, greenery, and other magical window displays. Finally a break in the weather and a wonderful time to wander the streets to soak in the holiday spirit.
They also had local developmentally challenged artists paint their favorite chefs and those painting are on display and for sale inside the store. My favorite is #10, Julia Child. Bon Appetite!
Louis Vuitton’s windows were breathtaking! They take me back to Thailand November 2008 for Loy Krathong, sending paper lanterns with wishes to the air.
Gumps had clever windows depicting holiday displays inside of retro television sets. I especially appreciated the Nutcracker set. Brings back nice memories dancing with Civic Dance Center and The Bakersfield Symphony so many years ago.
The rotunda of Neiman Marcus with its City of Paris stained glass windows and GIANT Christmas tree never fails to take my breath away.
Ralph Lauren showed a snowy scene with Native American motifs. I’m looking forward to recreating my own snowy mountain scene in Tahoe for NYE!
Ralph Lauren’s Home store showed a wintry bedroom scene. I could slumber well here, visions of sugar plums dancing through my head.
Hope you enjoyed a little tour of San Francisco’s finest window displays. Merry Christmas to all!
