Springtime at Macy’s

We recently took a foray to the Macy’s Flower Show in San Francisco.


The theme this year was “A Bohemian Garden”.


This was the 63rd year that flowers bloomed inside the department store.


The Flower Show is renowned and also occurred this Spring in New York, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, and Chicago.


The tradition began in Macy’s Union Square, which hosted the first ever department store flower show, right after World War II. It was created to promote the store’s perfume.


In a rough retail year, and an even harsher flower-show year (with venerable shows calling it quits), it was nice to see even a scaled-down version of spring pastels, floral magic, and a little fantasy. Even The Teen liked it.
