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 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!
These were the flowers below the balloon. The picture on the right is the basket of the balloon.
Some pictures of various displays on the first floor.
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.
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!
