Macy's Herald Square 2010 Flower Show

Macy's in Herald Square has been a shopping institution since 1902. It is one of the last turn-of-the-century department stores in existence. I have to admit, I love the Thanksgiving parade and one of these days I would love to see it live but I normally am a Bloomingdales person myself. I decided to attend their annual flower show this year as did visit it many years ago. Let's just say, I will be going back to actually shop a bit as didn't have time with checking out the flower show and taking shots galore!! The shoe department was very scary. I had to leave quickly as a sale was going on and I saw too many great little shoes calling my name!!! 

The store is transformed into a flower wonderland. This year's show features 10 different garden environments with over 30,000 varieties of trees, flowering plants and lots of color. You can take free guided tours which I thought was a nice touch or just walk around on your own. I decided to go it alone as they have a program guide on the main floor which tells you were all the displays are located, the store is very big so this is a good idea!! My goal was to arrive 1st thing in the morning before the crowds really got heavy. For those who like table settings, they have some great ones and I took shots of all for you to see. This will be quite a few posts as there were many shots taken and lots to see. So sit back, have a latte and maybe a biscotti and enjoy the flower show. Spring is in the Air !!!

I liked the handbags promoting the flower show

Your enthusiasm for NYC inspires my own - which is pretty great to begin with. Next time you are at Macy's, check out the small building hidden behind all the signs at the corner of 34th and Broadway. It is the most famous "holdout" building in NYC - the owner just would not sell, so they built the huge store around it.
