This fountain greets you, after you enter the gate at the Blaisdell Manor (built in 1910) in Minneapolis. We were there for a wedding reception, and there were people milling around everywhere sipping champagne so it was hard for me to get shots of all of its beauty, minus people. But here are a few.
Many of the guests were from France, and this little French boy was just too adorable to resist snapping a photo of.
This is the chandelier in the foyer, entryway.
The cool light above the stairs.
I went upstairs, and no one was making use of this room.
And I looked down on the garden fountain. Like the photos of The Basilica of St Mary's, these were all handheld and no flash. We ate dinner in the ballroom and I shared my dinner with you a couple of days ago. I had pork chops, and some cute little dessert. Each dish came with an orchid and I had fun playing with mine. You couldn't tell, could you?
