Skating at Tiffany's.....

Each year I try to get to one of London's Ice Rinks that 'pop' up for the Holiday Season. This has become a bit of a festive tradition, probably because it reminds me of New York.
My rink for the last 2 seasons has been Somerset House, which in itself is a beautiful setting but with the added feature of the 'blue-lit' rink it becomes truly stunning.
The other draw is that this rink is sponsored by Tiffany's, so the Tiffany blue is everywhere!
Due to no time on the run upto Christmas, I saved my trip until the early new year, (rink closes 25th Jan) and managed to get over there after work just before the deluge of snow hit the country.
Skating is not one of my strengths, so I am just a viewer who indulges in a Hot Chocolate & cupcake! which is found in the Tiffany Tuck box!
I Y Tiffany's.... the 5th Avenue store is breathtaking glamour, even when it is filled with Christmas shoppers in December!... obviously with the popularity of the silver floor over the last few years, it has become distinctly recognisable... however within the diamond hall the glamour of yester-year is still around.
Here are some photo's from my trip to Tiffany's New York in December......i'm coveting the cake stand complete with boxes!

Oh I LOVE skating and try and go every year too. Last year (I mean 2008) was a washout: we went to the moat of the Tower of London and the ice had a layer of water on it PLUS someone had had a rather nasty accident and there was blood on the ice, and tney made us all queue up for like over an hour while they got the ambulance crew in to pick the poor person up. It was total chaos. The year before that, at Somerset House, one of our young nurses' husbands fell and smashed his wrist to smithereens. Hmmm, maybe you're right to sit it out, and so would I, just so I could indulge in a Tiffany cup of coffee!!

I haven't made it there yet... maybe I'll pop down for a nose one night after work - like you I'll be a spectator rather than participating!!

Wow that looks so lovely Teresa, but I must admit that watching sounds better than skating (not that I've ever tried and I always have a fear that I'd fall and someone would skate over my fingers). New York must have been magical Yola x
