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.”

From the iconic An Post Green post box to Robin Redbreast landing on a frosted branch, to the Snowman or kisses under the Mistletoe – there is something to excite all, young and old alike.

There are 1,000 miniature handcrafted features set at a child’s eye level. They took over 10 days to build and include everything from Brown Thomas miniature present boxes, to tiny bespoke baked goods and little furniture displays.
