Neiman Marcus's Crawl Tube Experience
The tarp has been uncovered and the gorgeous holiday windows have been revealed. Neiman Marcus downtown is already a stunning destination for this Christmas season, but if you have little ones then it is a must! Kids literally get to climb inside the fantastic holiday windows and experience it from within. The glitz and glamour are beyond fabulous.
Dallas Christmas Lights
We may not have bundles of snow falling during our winter season, but Dallas is the créme de la créme of Christmas lights. Downtown Dallas is a glowing display and the lights in Highland Park Village are unbelievably beautiful. This year I plan on driving around Kessler Park and do a little winter wonderland dreaming.
The Dallas Flea - Saturday, December 1
Y'all know how much I love The Dallas Flea and I am super excited about stocking up on Christmas presents at this upscale indoor flea market! For a five dollar entry fee, I'll be oohing and aahing over the holiday decorations, local artwork, furniture, and fashion!
Children's Medical Center Holiday Parade - Saturday, December 1
New York may have the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, but here in Dallas we have the enchanting Holiday Parade benefiting the Children’s Medical Center. Complete with giant inflatable balloons, bands, performances, and even a few celebrities.
Perot Museum - Opening Saturday, December 1
Save the date and give the gift of science at the Grand Opening of Dallas's newest museum on December 1st. The building itself is a piece of scientific art - the outer skin is made up of 656 textured precast concrete panels and has a fantastic 150-foot glass-enclosed tube-like structure protruding from the side, making it a stunning addition to downtown Dallas. I am so excited to check out the interior and visit the museum.
The Nutcracker - Now through December 2
For me, nothing is more magical than The Nutcracker. as a child it was apart of our holiday traditions and I can't imagine a more perfect way to celebrate the season. The dancing, the music, the costumes - all contributing to Clara's legendary fantasy. So join the wintry wonderland as Texas Ballet Theater presents The Nutcracker.
Elf at Main Street Garden - Saturday, December 8
"We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup." I'm pretty obsessed with all holiday movies but Elf is without a doubt one of my favorites. And something about about snuggling up with my hubby on a blanket with some hot chocolate on Main Street Garden's lawn, while we watch Elf, makes me feel giddy inside.
Dallas Heritage Village
For years Dallas Heritage Village has been transforming its nineteenth century houses and commercial buildings into one of the loveliest places to celebrate the holiday season. With their Candlelight event and Victorian Christmas they promise to bring history to Dallas in a magical way.
Studio Party - Saturday, December 15
Tis' the season to support your fellow Texan artisans, and if you visit my blog regularly you'll know about my obsession with Dowdy Studio. I've already acquired a massive wish list from their wagon and am so looking forward to their December studio party. Come shop the Dowdy Studio Wagon and enjoy local brewskies and some holiday spirits! It's going to be fun!
Be sure to check out other events in Deep Ellum, the Bishop Arts District, and Klyde Warren Park.
