Macy's Flower Show


On Saturday April 10th, we went to the Macy's Flower Show downtown Chicago on State Street.  We weren't sure what to expect, but wow were we suprised.  The flowers were amazing and covered every part of the store.  The event is held annually and always occurs around Easter.  It is a MUST see.


This was the scene in the famous Macy windows on State Street.  They were so striking and whimsical!

 This painting, is the picture they used on all of their ads to promote the flower show. It is an ABSOLUTELY adorable design.  The large Macy's shopping bags all had this picture on them too. 

  This giant balloon was in one of the large atriums. It was such a fun sight!  Notice the carpet they had running throughout the store.  It is designed after the picture they used for the promo.  Obviously, no expense was spared!

There were plenty of floral tablescapes to see.  Most of them designed by Lenox or Martha Stewart.



They had many seminars and speakers throughout the week. This picture was taken at the "Bedding in Bloom Brunch".  A style expert showed how to create the ultimate sleep oasis and shared some "breakfast in bed" recipes.

This was the scene at the famous Walnut room on the seventh floor of Macy's.  This display was absolutely breathtaking in person.

 The beautiful Burnham Fountain in Macy's.

One of the best parts about visiting Macy's on State is being able to visit the beautiful Millennium Park just a couple blocks away.   Here is a pic of Mac and Soran(Anne's boys) trying to be as tall as the big city buildings!
