Macy’s Flower Show 2021, In Case You Missed It

Macy’s Flower Show 2021 was unexpected. They scrambled, putting it together much faster than usual as COVID restrictions slowly lifted. We went on a photo safari for sharing with readers who may not be able to see it themselves.

Walking through Macy’s Flower Show 2021

When we moved to New York in 1990, the annual flower show in Herald Square drew me from my office on lower Madison Avenue for an irresistible lunchtime visit. But this year, its role in celebrating spring in New York City carried special significance.

Outside, flourishing pink bouquets bordered thoughtfully arranged window displays.

Aware of a pandemic still spreading, Macy’s playfully reminded visitors about social distancing.

Inside, floral displays top sales floors, but that’s a small part of much greater beauty.

The mesmerizing sweetness of this main aisle display demanded a video because a still could never capture it.

Escalators are a convenience, but at Macy’s, they were also a treat with displays guiding you past.

At Macy’s Flower Show 2021, a theme of strength but also beauty.

With tourists returning, the sidewalks were busy, even on a weekday. But only locals can fully appreciate the “To New York City from Macy’s” salute.

The main floor was a rich with floral design as it was with shoppers.

The main aisle was a sweet-smelling pleasure, but a different appreciation awaited above.

Well-planned designs included altering support columns with flowery arrays.

What struck us the most? On the main floor, Macy’s designers took the trouble of adding blue birds on the wire, a nifty unexpected touch.

Going Down?

Going down… If you can still find time for Macy’s Flower Show 2021, it runs for one more week, closing on May 16th.

But if you can’t, we hope we did it as much justice as possible without taking you there.
