39th Annual Macy’s Flower Show March 24th – April 7th

Nothing says spring like two million flowers and exotic topiaries.  Sixty-five years ago, Macy’s Flower Show began as a fragrance festival at the Union Square store in San Francisco. In 1953, the Macy’s Flower Show made its debut at The Herald Square store in New York City.

Working in the New York City garment district at Broadway and 38th Street for many years, I found this event to be extremely inspiring.  Literally steps away from my job, I would walk over to Macy’s, and this show would bring me to a whole new world of endless inspiration and phenomenal urban sanctuaries. The palates of color were endless.  This show always evokes such beauty, and inevitably gets the creative juices flowing.turned to sidemissedThe fantastic part about the Macy’s Flower Show is that everyone will enjoy it. The world famous department store makes sure it’s a family affair.  It’s not only for artists or flower  enthusiasts.  It is a beautiful collection of arrangements from all around the world for everyone to enjoy.green and orange

Every year they pick a different theme. Last year was Brazil.  This year they will be drawing inspiration from the spirit of South Asia.  If you haven’t been, I strongly suggest you check it out this year.  It’s always a great spirit booster, and I’m sure you would agree.

Throughout the store, they have many other things to participate in, such as high tea for the ladies, balloon twisting and glitter tattoos for the kids. Teens can enjoy creating headbands and listening to music spun by the in-house DJ, and men can enjoy hand rolled cigars up on the 3rd floor.

Some of the featured gardens this year will be
