As promised, I'm reporting back about Macys Flower Show at the downtown Minneapolis Macys. They have gone back to setting it up in the 8th floor auditorium again so the lighting is funky - pretty dark with fairly obvious spotlighting. Despite that (and the crowds! note to self: don't go during spring break next year), there were many charming little scenes and views. It also smelled heavenly, thanks in large part to the bountiful lilacs!
Above is a very cute elf house, complete with a little elf door. No elf to be seen, though; he must've been on vacay.
