Christmas Village for my local florist

edited November 2011 in Photography/Video
My local florist change her window display every 2-3 months, depending on the season...Never seen any Lego in there...So A couple of months ago, after picking my son at school, I meet the florist outside her shop, and ask her if she would be interested to have a Christmas village in her window in Lego....She accepted...so i build a few different things, nothing compare to some of you guys that create fantastic MOC and things, but I am still proud of myself :)

I built the houses and trees at home, and we put everything together last night.

here is the results, I will try to put more pictures later.
Thanks for watching

    Beautiful!
    How did you do the snow?
    It'd look great with some (real) christmas tree lights round the edge of it :)
    What a great idea

    Ive always thought the Ollivanders building from Diagon Alley would look great with that set, never seen them all together before and now I think it even more!

    That's really wonderful Eric, very impressed!

    Edit: I love the tree as well Savage, would be a great way to use all those palm trees I seem to have kicking around.

    Very nice, I will be attempting something simular (but on a small scale) for my home in a week or so.

    Great stuff, did you get any free flowers in return?
  • legonut80legonut80 UKMember Posts: 314
    That's great, i think people will stop to look in at that display :-) i also love the big tree
  • SupersympaSupersympa SwedenMember Posts: 534
    @atkinsar I do it for fun...but I am sure my wife will get flowers for free (which will save ME money, LOL)

    I forgot to say that I also gave polybags to her so she can give to kids that find the two Santa's helper that are hidden...well...not that difficult ;)

    Is that the town hall type building from the village square layout? (can't remember the exact name or find the set, the anniversary one I think, with the cinema as well).

    Great idea, and well executed! (but where are the polar bears...? :P)

    edit: found it http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=10184-1 Nice work!

    Your work is beautiful, but your warmhearted and generous offer to the florist is more beautiful than anything else!! ;-)

    Fab!
  • jwsmartjwsmart Member Posts: 298
    Nice!
  • SupersympaSupersympa SwedenMember Posts: 534
    Thanks everybody ;)
    makes my day all your comments!

    The florist asked me to think about another display I could do.
    I am very glad with that!

    PS: I am sorry about the low quality of the pictures...

    Amazing fair play to you, loving the snowboarder on the hill
  • MinifigsMeMinifigsMe Member Posts: 2,844
    Just thought I'd add, this is my Christmasy-fied MMV and MMR. Dead simple, but creates quite a large village when added to the winter village sets. :)
  • allmybricksallmybricks Member Posts: 156
    Great idea Savage_Steel !
  • brickmaticbrickmatic Member Posts: 1,071
    Love that you're spreading LEGO cheer with a fantastic display and gifts for kids to boot! It's awesome!
  • Si_UKNZSi_UKNZ NZMember Posts: 4,179
    looks great!
    bet the holiday train looks fab next to those
  • princedravenprincedraven Essex, UKMember Posts: 3,768
    ^^^^ Loving that Savage, really nicely done, the small touches really set it off.
  • MinifigsMeMinifigsMe Member Posts: 2,844
    Thanks mate, I've made a nativity to put in the barn now (the angel is quite nice and simple - I used vellum for the wings) but the baby is just a head in a turban, looks a bit odd!
  • princedravenprincedraven Essex, UKMember Posts: 3,768
    Can you post some more pics when you can :)
  • LegogeekLegogeek Orange County, CaliforniaMember Posts: 711
    @Savage_Steel excellent layout with the "Christmasy-fied MMV and MMR" :o)
  • The_Brick_BuilderThe_Brick_Builder Member Posts: 658
    Great mod Savage! Looks excellent and could go into any City layout seamlessly.

    Along a similar theme I thought I'd share the attached, which is on my sideboard at home opposite the (real!) tree. The core is the obvious winter theme sets, but I've added a few bits here and there.
  • Si_UKNZSi_UKNZ NZMember Posts: 4,179
    Skislope, yey! Looks great with the Emerald too, nice collection.
    Those weighted snowboards are great, they really work!
  • MinifigsMeMinifigsMe Member Posts: 2,844
    ^^ I like the rack for the skis - the whole thing looks good though.

    Si - I got the ski slope on your recommendation for the white plates. got it out and it was pretty much assembled. It never got dismantled. Nick and I spent ages racing each other down the slope. Then my nephew came over and added obstacles (scorpians and spiders). Great little set for playability!

    Here's a few more pics for @princedraven and to inspire all you Lego Heathen's who haven't built their winter sets yet! (It's nothing special, but cute non-the-less!)
    (sorry the photos are a bit grainy, it's in a dark corner)

    I see you have a Genie from series 6 already! Might have to use that excuse (similar to 'needing' a Roman soldier for my nativity scene). It's just a modded POP dagger fight but need to drop in some figs.
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,594
    I may be a heathen who hasn't put together my Winter Village but I do love Christmas. Last night I found this photo of a model I built back in September and had forgotten about (so this was probably my first proper MoC rather than the market stall for the Brickish party). It's been demolished now so I can't take any better pictures. Looking back at it, I wish I'd brick-built the reindeer rather than trying to mod the cow - looks very bizarre! ;) But hey ho, live and learn.

    Lucy that's awesome! I know there's complicated moc's out there, but my favourite part of lego is the details and yours is full of them! I love the stockings, the snowboards by the door and the carrot and mince pie for Santa and Rudolf.
    Ps I like the cowdolf :)

    @andhe - yep, got the genie in my first bag, and 30 bags later I've not had another! (or a butcher or snowboarder!) Dagger fight would be good for it, if I hadn't built my barn already I'd have used that. Love the POP sets for parts and fleshies :)
  • SupersympaSupersympa SwedenMember Posts: 534
    @lostintranslation, yes looks like a well fed reindeer! :)
    well done Lucy on that moc.
