Last week, we went to the Boulevard Haussmann where are the 2 main depatment stores in Paris : Les Galeries Lafayette and Le Printemps.
At this time of year, they showcase the magic of Christmas.
Better than words, look :
very class with oits black-yellow-silver-and gold decorations
An upside down Christmas tree, hooked on to the ceiling.


the pink and purple version, the giant CHRISTMAS TREE

After seeing all these wonderful decorations, I wish you to make sweet colorful dreams. Do not forget that the waiting is an important part of the magic.

In a following post, I'll show you the animated-toys in the windows. Spoiled children!

Après avoir regardé toutes ces merveilles, je vous souhaite de faire de doux rêves colorés. N'oubliez surtout pas que l'attente fait partie de la féérie de Noël.

Dans un prochain 'post', je vous montrerai les vitrines animées. Enfants gatés,va!

  4. What a happy post, Catherine.
    I remember very well the Galeries Lafayette and Le Printemps as I went there with my aunt many many years ago. These stores are so comfortable and pleasant!

  5. Paris à Noël c'est vraiment magique, hier j'ai vu a la télévision l'illumination des champs elysées, c'était fantastique

  6. Wonderful post! I can't wait to decorate the house for Christmas. We will do that in two weeks from now.
    I've never tasted the recipe of Ratatouille but i hope do that when i visit France one day.

  7. So, beautiful. I have heard of people hanging Christmas trees upside down, but have never seen one. It is much more beautiful than I imagined!! Thanks for sharing. This is the happiest time of year!!

  8. Hi Catherine..most sho[ps here wait till 1st December to light the displays. As I love them so much I'm glad to see yours.
    My favourite has to be the last photo. Lovely display with the gold of the shop behind..

  9. Sometimes, like now while seeing your post, I miss all those Christmas decorations and music and mood.

  10. Gorgeous! I am so excited! I am going to sneak a peek at these displays this weekend!

  11. My favorite is the upsidedown tree... I should try that at home:)

  12. Beautiful! But it's not even THANKSGIVING YET! What happened to the thrill of waiting in anticipation for the post-turkey day unveiling of the wonders of Christmas. I miss it! Pretty soon they are going to leave everything up all year round, taking it down only to dust it off and put it back sometime in August since there are no other holidays then. AACK!

    Ok. I'll quit whining now. ;0)

  13. Passer Noël à Paris, je l'ai fait 2 fois : SUBLIME... Mais cher un peu...

  14. Wow!!! This is grand, Catherine! I love those colors of Christmas ...
