Window Wednesdays: Part 2 Macy's Flower Show 2008

Theme for 2008: Seven Wonders of Fashion

Such details. So beautiful. The roaring 20s -hands down- is my favorite window. I encourage anyone in NYC to check out these wondrous windows before they are taken down.

Each year one of the Big Apple's most iconic stores - Macy's on Broadway - hosts its annual flower show, turning over part of its store to incredible floral displays. Using over a million flowers from all over the world, horticulturists create wonderful floral displays that attract thousands of camera-toting visitors from not only across New York, but from all over the world. Held over two weeks, the store also organises a number of family-friendly events, workshops and demonstrations to tie in with the show.

Gina+Matt designed the artwork this year.Graphic Logo For Chicago/State Street Flower Show-very trendy, fresh & Latin inspired.The store is transformed into a tropical wonderland. Plants definitely feel out of place in a department store, such as this one. You notice the overall effect right away. I loved the Macy's building that is built out of natural plant/flower materials. The details are wonderful. Here's a link to Martha Stewart's book signing during the flower show. She got some great interior photos as well.

Beautiful pictures, thanks for sharing! I would love to go and see it in person (and I would have loved to see Martha Stewart last weekend)! I love her and can't wait to see her new floral arrangements with 1-800-Flowers.com, I bet they will be spectacular!
