Harrod's 2012 Christmas Windows and Parade

Has the Christmas spirit hit you yet? I'm trying to juggle Thanksgiving and Christmas at the same time. Everything is so rushed! I dislike that. Well anyway! Harrod's in London is in the Christmas spirit. Last month I showed you the designer sketches of the Disney princess dresses at Harrods (click HERE). Harrod's just recently revealed their "Once Upon A Dream" Disney Princess Christmas Holiday Windows and I thought I would show you the end result. What do you think of them now? Harrod's also held their annual Christmas Parade last weekend. It included some classic costumes from years past and a pleasant mix of new such as Mickey & Minnie Mouse and the Disney Princesses. I included the video so you could see all of it. Hope you all have a great weekend!

  7. I adore this...love all the decorations and excitement!! I wish it could just be that and not all the mean people trying to buy everything and snatching everything from you. People should be merry and fun, but it seems to bring out the worst in everyone. I just prefer the parades and music and baking and try to stay away from all that, I do my shopping online or get there as it opens to avoid people, hahaha!! But, how can one not feel happy looking at these displays, they are wonderful :)) Have a super weekend doll, hope it's a lot of fun for you!!! xoxo

  13. Oh, I'm definitely in the holiday spirit! Which is pretty unsual for me around this time.

    I love the whole "fairy tale princesses gone high fashion" vibe. Department stores always do such a lovely job on their window displays.

  22. Really beautiful post, Kim!
    I'm just sad that I won't be able to see those wonderful Harrod's Xmas windows in person. I've been lucky enough to be in London twice in december and I can say that seeing it in person is even more special :)

    Have a sweet weekend!

  30. Oh Kim!!! I have been to Harrods twice and to me it's like an adult Disneyland, so to add the window displays and parade is just over the top indulgence!!! I wish I could go, I would even bear the cold to be there now :)

  34. Wow! What a colourful post, Kim. That's a great Disney theme too. I'm hoping to visit London before Christmas - maybe just a day but still worth it to see the displays and some Christmas shopping of course!! By the way I loved the images in your last post - I'm surprised I haven't come across this magazine in Dubai. Must look out for it. Have a great weekend.

  38. Kim,
    I loved these images. I was not aware of the beautiful theme and windows at Harrods this year. (It's been busy on this side of town too). Love the sketches & how they transferred into such amazing windows. WOWZA!
    Have a great weekend love.

  53. This is my favourite part of the season because of all of the stunning and unique installations and displays. I saw Selfridges last season. I won't be able to see these this time, but how wonderful are they! I agree with Irenita in person it's a magical feeling. Wishing you a great week lovely. xx

  57. Amazing photos & stunning displays! I still can't believe it's already November and the holiday season is so soon!

  58. Beautiful! Yes, all the shops have put up their decorations; we can definitely feel that festive spirit. I do wish Christmas was a little less commercialised though!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I have missed this Parade. But my mom said it was the best Parade ever. I wish I could participate for an event at least one time. I love the color combination and it was so glamorous.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I absolutely love the designs for the Disney Princesses! Tiana is probably my favorite out of this set.

    I don't even want to start thinking of Christmas. Although, I will admit it's my favorite time of the year. Let's get through Thanksgiving first. I am looking forward to the Macy's Day Parade though.
