When in Manhattan earlier this week for a WAG story, I stopped by Macy’s Herald Square.
The annual flower show, this year themed “Art in Bloom,” had opened the day before.
I specifically stopped in to see the first installment of the Bouquet of the Day series as it was to feature a creation by Martha Stewart.
WAG’s July 2014 cover girl, as you just knew she would, designed an amazingly spot-on spring display, topped by a basket overflowing with bursts of flowers seemingly emerging from oversize eggs and bunnies peeping out here and there. (Check out her blog for a full description of the features and installation process).
Stewart’s bouquet actually had a three-day display and yielded to other designs that will continue to be switched up as the show continues.
As always, the blooms are everywhere in themed gardens (exploring art movements from Abstract to Art Nouveau) – and the Broadway entrance includes a statue inspired by Michelangelo’s “David.”
And don’t forget the windows, which start the show before you even enter the flagship store.
The show, with related events, continues through April 4 during all store hours.
