Macy’s Flower Show is in full swing with Towers of Flowers

The 37th Macy’s Flower Show is in full swing now, ready for spring in one of the colder parts of the USA. The show ends on April 10th, so it’s not too late for New Yorkers and their neighbors to check out the happenings. This year it’s spectacular as always: you’ll find 100,000 plants in all their glory on the Main Floor of the Broadway Building, on Herald Square (so-named for the Herald Newspaper which was headquartered there).

Each year the flower show has a theme, and this year it’s “Towers of Flowers.” This means that visitors can expect to see architecture and 11 special gardens made all out of flowers. One centerpiece is a 16-foot tower and the windows are full of flowers as well.

Famous architecture, such as the Eiffel Tower and the Great Pyramids of Egypt, have been made up in floral versions. There’s even a tropical and cactus section. (While daFlores.com doesn’t deal in cacti, we do have an extensive selection of tropical flowers for delivery.)

And there’s magic in the air: the organizers are pumping the scents of lavender and chamomile through the air to entice you in. This is a far cry, of course, from the Macy’s parade and all that good stuff, but it does have one thing in common — the show is a real spectacle. If you love flowers, like we do at daFlores.com, then you should check it out. The website is macys.com/flowershow.

While this kind of thing isn’t what daFlores.com does, we are in the business of stunning flowers. We have several towering arrangements that are sure to bring admiring comments: check out our Sunburst Tower Basket, for example. This cheery arrangement with big yellow sunflowers is just right for birthdays, thank-you messages and is a happy gift for those who aren’t feeling well. Browse through our arrangements and, just like Macy’s, you can fill your home with gorgeous flowers.

Send a bouquet to your favorite tax person this year

If you’re an average joe who leaves taxes to the last minute this year, spare a thought for the tax preparers. The next two weeks mark the busiest and most stressful periods of their year as documents turn out to be missing, requests come in three days before the 15th and the paperwork just keeps piling up.

 

Taxes are bad enough for ordinary people, which is why many of us choose to have someone else take on the hassle. So why not acknowledge the work these people do for us and have a bouquet of flowers sent over on the 16th of April?

 

While the work doesn’t stop immediately on April 15, much of the pressure is off. Sure, there are the refunds and the revisions and the late-filing returns. But a lovely daFlores.com flower arrangement to say thank you for the service is sure to be appreciated.

 

This simple and friendly gesture is sure to be appreciated and will maybe alleviate the sense of burnout. Mixed arrangements, such as our assorted gerbera and sunflower arrangements are perfect, but for a more elegant gift (or a gentleman) try our tropical flowers. Add a  bottle or wine or box of chocolates to make things a little more special.

 

You can browse daFlores.com arrangements by price or occasion, and we’d suggest looking in our tropical flowers or birthday sections for ideas. With so many gorgeous flower delivery choices, we are sure that you’ll find something that fits the bill. Set the date for April 16 or April 18 (the next Monday) and you’ll stand out as a thoughtful person who truly appreciates the service.

 

DaFlores.com works only with florists who’ve been in the business for 10 or more years, ensuring that the flowers you send for this professional gesture are absolutely second to none. And as always, they were growing fresh that morning. Give your tax provider a smile today with a daFlores.com flower delivery.
