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.
Classical art, pop art, impressionistic art was all represented.
Flowering full size cherry trees lined the aisles.
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.

What fun to go shopping and finding yourself in a garden full of blossoms…..
Never get tired of flowers.
Wow… When I was little, I shopped with my Grandmom and Mother.
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.
Thanks Darlene, I thought the trip was a great combo though I wish I had more time for shopping!
Eye-popping to eyes weary of winter and ready for spring! Thanks for sharing, Claire.
Weary is right, I am ready!
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.
Thanks you for the beautiful pictures….It was the next best things to being there.
Stunning photos. Looked like somewhere I’d like to spend a great deal of time. Shopping and plants. My version of heaven.
Thank you so much for sharing the beautiful pictures from Macy’s.
What a lovely site.
