Xmas butter sculptures in Toronto’s Royal York Hotel lobby

19 Dec


The Royal York Hotel decorates its lobby each December to welcome visitors over the yuletide season. Although the hotel lobby is one of the largest in the city, the space appears intimate and warm. Butter sculptures in numerous glass showcases depict the traditions and stories of Christmas. The colourful Christmas tree at the west end of the lobby is the focal point of the seasonal display.
