Macy’s Flower Show-Art In Bloom

bloom

Shopping and a flower show – what a combination!! I was in heaven when I visited NYC’s Macy’s Herald Square store and saw the phenomenal floral creations covering every available inch of the store. Along with the clothing and shoe displays, you can enjoy over the top floral creations and artwork. Designers even bedeck an escalator area with flowers!

Many of the support pillars had hanging gardens of Babylon! Just think of watering these for the entire run of the show, Sunday, March 22 to Saturday, April 4. This years theme was “Art In Bloom” and the artworks were outstanding and memorable.

A veritable horticultural art gallery greets you when you step through the doors, with floral displays depicting different major movements in art history.

Floral seminars, painting sessions, and other special events occur throughout the show with famous floral designers like Martha Stewart and Jes Gordon performing their magic. The central arrangement, a celebration of Easter and Springtime was a show stopper. Three or four bunnies were peeking out behind the flowers and people gathered around trying to find them all.

  4. Claire,
    The Macys’ Flower Show was fabulous. I could not decide which I liked better: the Orchid show at the NY Botanical Gardens or Macys. Can never get enough flowers. Your photos are great.

  7. This is great. I may have to visit our local Macy’s and see if they have a flower show. Macy’s in NYC has the best dressed windows and store displays though.
