Macy’s Flower Show 2012!

5 Apr

Last Monday I took a short trip down to New York City for work and I was so excited to learn that I would be down there for Macy’s annual Flower Show!  The theme of this year’s show was “Brasil, Gardens in Paradise” and they set up a huge tent on Broadway Plaza where you could walk through on your own or with a tour to see the amazing gardens, floral displays, and even a huge Tucan made entirely of flowers.  I read that one of my favorite event designers, Preston Bailey, had done work for the show but unfortunatly I wasn’t able to see it since he was displaying later on in the tour (The show lasts about 2 weeks!) Besides the tent, all of the window’s down 34th street were done up with flowers and costumes and inside Macy’s they had flowers on display as well.  The entire show was free of charge and it goes all day during store hours.  The one thing I wish I had done was written down some of the types of flowers in the tent because most weren’t marked and now I can’t remember all of the different kinds I saw.  I hope I can make it down there again next year and I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys flowers and gardening!
