My first time seeing the Big Guy in a mall!

Santa Claus visited by girls and boys at Billings Bridge Shopping Centre in Ottawa:


A little blurry, but it was a beautiful setup. I think it has been around for at least five or six years:


Hanging decorations:


That is all I could get today. Billings Bridge is a neighbourhood mall in Ottawa. There are probably only about 60-80 stores.

Rails and Walls.

1) Beautifully bedecked iron railing!


2) and 3)
Subdivision wall decorated for the season!


Absolutely beautiful Crown. Much like Ryan's photo, I wish there was more of this in Ottawa. I never tire of this decor.

Wreaths.

1) Twin wreaths welcome visitors to a small local shopping center.


2) and 3)
Nice wreaths adorn another shopping center where I get my groceries.

Signs.
While railing and lamp post decorations are usually my favorite, I also like sign decorations of this sort.

1) Elegant wreaths adorn a local subdivision sign.


2) Shopping center entrance sign invites visitors to enjoy the holidays within.


3) More wreaths at the entrance to another nice, local neighborhood.

More beautiful, seasonal storefronts!

1) Christmas wreaths flank this store's name.
(Note the lights over the top of the store. These mall ceiling lights move and flash red and green during the holiday season. A nice mood setter!)


2) Bright sign flashes on and off to grab the attention of potential customers.
(It grabbed my attention for a photo shot!)
I particularly like the corner greenery. Nice touch.


3) Every year, Brooks Brothers can be counted on for a classy display!

4) I like the plaid background on this one.
(Sorry for the glare. I adjusted brightness and contrast the best I could to minimize it.)


5) Ticknors can also be counted on each year.


6) Garland border lends class to this display at Williams-Sonoma.

Beautiful additions, Crown. I too love the plaid!

Looks like if you can't find it somewhere out there now, it can't be had.
Thanks, Snowflake!

Great photos, snowflake. So many nice things. I want them all!

Crown, those wreaths are classy as usual. I would love to have a brick home and one of those on the door. Oh, and those lights inside Crabtree?! Wow. My only real downfall thus far is that I haven't been to a decorated mall - outside of Billings Bridge. I am slipping at that this year. Hopefully I can at least get to one!

A brick or stone house would be stunning with one of those wreaths!
