Bergdorf's Teatime

Bergdorf's Teatime,watercolor on Etsy, sold 5.5" x 7.5
Time for another fabulous Bergdorf's Xmas window...
The 3-layer cake toute en blanche stood waiting...
Surrounded by endless gateaux up the whazoo - here a Bundt cake, there a sponge...
Some cakes already sliced, waited patiently...
While others extravagantly decorated awaited the knife....
Where was Mr. Right?
Always on time in the past. This was no time to be tardy. And on the day she was decked out in melting icing...
Monsieur Singe plunged his fork into a nearby chestnut torte, unable to contain his rampant appetite! "Gourmande!" she cried.
Other singes slurped and munched on the plethora of desserts and exotic teas, remembering their days in the jungles of Singapore...
A treasure trove of iced cookies beckoned to Jean-Jacques R....
Another singe, Jean-Paul S., balanced his tea and cake ever so delicately....
"One can't be expected to wait forever can one?" He asked.
If he doesn't show, C'est la vie... The white chocolate ganache began to drip, drip, drip...
Quelle domage.
I've never seen a "white" macaron.
Vanille, oui, mais snowy white? Non.
In the land of fantasy anything goes...
BON WEEK-END!

Oooooh, that teacup painting is beautiful, Carol! Well done, M'lle. And I have to admit, when you show these NY windows this time of year, I get very nostalgic for my years growing up there. I used to just love seeing all the wonderful windows. I always try to convince myself they're "not as nice as they used to be" but your photos show them just as glorious as I remember 'em. Have a great weekend. Magical post!

These photos are transporting, like a good book. Thanks for taking me window shopping with you in New York. Now, let's go buy something! I'd like that monkey, how about you?

That Berdorf window designer - amazing! I want to quit my job and do windows. Am puzzling over how to get the texture on the sliced cake...maybe spray paint cut styrofoam? And the bride in frosting! So much better than icing the cake...no one's going to saw into the bride with a cake knife and ruin the concoction!

I like the simple, winter-y palette too!
(Is that a meringue on the saucer? Yum!)

Is that tea in your cup? I think not! ;-)

Carol:

Thanks for the wonderful photos of the fabulous windows! I showed them to my wife who forwarded this email to many of her girl friends, who where equally taken by them.

The post today (12/29/08) with the link to NYTimes photog Paul Cunningham's stills depicting the holiday season in NYC, concluding with these windows was much appreciated as well.

May you have a great new year.

Steve in Chicago.

PS: I think all that Japanese is a ad for a porn site. Google does a good attempt at translation, which seems to hint at it.
