7,000 baubles, a mile of green foliage and one million pin lights - it's Christmas window time

It’s actually October – but don’t let that put you off.

BROWN THOMAS UNVEILED its Christmas windows at its Grafton Street store today.

Today, 21 October, a whole 64 days until Christmas.

The windows contain more than 10,000 decorations, 7,000 baubles, over a mile of green foliage and more than one million pin lights.

Creative Director at Brown Thomas John Redmond said,”Each window has been hand-built and takes approximately one week to construct.”
