When it comes to the holidays we’re sticklers for the traditions: The mulled wine, the carols, the open fires and festive trees and, of course, some of the best holiday shop windows in the world. To celebrate Modenus’ newest trade show collaboration with Ambiente Frankfurt, one of the world’s largest gift and table top shows, we dreamed up a contest that we hope will make you get you all warm and fuzzy and festive and triumphant.

Once you have nominated your favorite shops, be sure to get your friends, family and followers to vote for your entry. Our three prizes have been graciously offered by our friends at Villeroy & Boch and will be awarded based on the nomination with the most votes.

Iconic Tiffany on Old Bond Street in London. One can only imagine how mesmerized I was when my stroll led me to the most lovely Tiffany jewel box Christmas windows. Romantic and quirky little life-like scenes were animated with life-size jewels. True fantasies they were in miniature and sparkling form.
Taken at La Cumbre Mall in Santa Barbara, CA. Vote for me and I promise to rub the mixer for good luck on your behalf.

I would love to spend one night living this life! The garland is dramatic. The paneling is exquisite. The bar cart twinkles. The piano is a stage. The colors pop. Bravo!

SUBMITTED BY PATTI JOHNSON Every year my family ventures down Memory Lane to a small shop in Rochester Hills, Michigan for the best in Holiday Decor Windows. It was always so much fun taking our children to Sherwood Forest when they were young, and we still enjoy this holiday venture visiting Sherwood Forest!

The jeweler is one of the first Fifth Avenue shops to roll out its annual wintry display, although Van Cleef may be slightly ahead of the game because it has another occasion to commemorate-it's 75th birthday.

Located on 59th Street, Bloomingdales is one of New York City's most famous department stores, and their holiday window displays are worth a visit. Each year, Bloomingdales holiday window displays reflect a timely theme.
RAIN, a lovely shop, and one of my favourites on W49th and 6th NYC. The simple, organic nature of the Christmas window display perfectly illustrates the wares within.... handcrafted products using natural ingredients with African origins. I will be Christmas shopping at Rain.
These iconic department-store window displays add some eye candy to your holiday shopping spree.

One of the most beautiful windows in our area each year is the Holt Renfrew Holiday windows. This year they were inspired by the Northern Lights. The windows are unveiled with quite a celebration near the end of November and are a delight to view. Unfortunately when I updated my phone I lost my images, so I have borrowed these from the Holt Renfrew website. The window is simply stunning.
