Macy’s Flower Show
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.
