Still more:


7) Close-up of the "garland grove" from the lower level.





8) Overhead decorations already in place down one of the wings.




9) Cluster of small lamp pole trees.




If these decorations seem familiar, it's because Crabtree has used the same decorations in the same places as long as I have been taking photos there (since 2005).
They are a good set. Not sure I would want them to change. Would worry that what replaced them might not be as good!

It all looks wonderful. Thank you, Crown. You certainly picked a perfect time to visit Crabtree!

Yes, I always hope each year to catch them in mid-stream -- after the ornaments are in the mall but before they are all installed.
When the "blossoms" are still "buds", so to speak!

Yes. I, too, love seeing the "buds" begin to form as well. It truly is a thrill to experience. Although we are still just under four weeks away from the beginning of the Season, it is great to experience a little bit of its magic beforehand. And, what better magic to be experienced than your tradition at Crabtree?!

Christmas Street at The Bay brightened my day today. I was ecstatic when I spotted that it had moved to the bottom floor!

A blurry display:

A sleigh of Santa's on guard as you walk on to Christmas Street:
