Harrods London 2011
WOW doesn’t even begin to describe the magical Crystal Christmas-themed window displays at Harrods in London – we’ve never seen anything like it!
The lavish “Crystal Christmas” displays, bathed in a stunning royal blue hue (my favorite color), feature a collection of magnificent Swarovski Crystal pieces, thousands of twinkling lights, dramatically-posed mannequins – and a stunning Ralph & Russo couture gown crafted with over 150,000 Swarovski crystals.
When we visited London last month, the Harrods’ Christmas window displays were so mesmerizing (especially at twilight and after dark), they created a pedestrian traffic jam on the sidewalks of Knightsbridge. People were stopping to take pictures and videos (including us) – it was worth traveling 6,000 miles from San Francisco just to see these enchanting displays… and to shop at the world’s most famous department store of course!
Did you know that Harrods welcomes over 15 million visitors every year? Be sure to visit Harrods’ Food Hall on the ground floor – there’s nothing like it in the world! Ah… the selection of cheeses, caviars, seafood and shellfish, rotisserie meats, international deli treats, teas and coffees, cakes, pastries, chocolates, champagnes and wines… a feast before your eyes!
Have any of you seen Harrods’ Crystal Christmas-themed window displays yet this year? If you’re in London this holiday season, head over and check ’em out! Let us know what you think of them.
