The Colours of India - a Picture Heavy Post

Gentle Friends I have wanted to post these snaps all week.  They are from last weekend.  Although it was a very low key three days of movie watching and doing our usual stuff around the house - we did make it out and downtown to Union Square.  Why, you might ask did I, a non-shopping type, want to  make a trek down to a shopping Mecca like Union Square.....  it was to visit Macy's..

....  they were in full swing with their annual Flower Show....


This year the theme was "The Painted Garden" and was all about the lovely colours of India!!!  All the front windows where just full of floral displays ....



This is a free event and the show is all over on the ground floor..... in the makeup, perfume, jewelry and handbag departments....  here are the snaps...













It is really hard to show in a few snaps the lovely flower displays and the impact they made - but -  It was a super time and we'll be going again next year!

Thanks for stopping by, do stop again!!

Take care,
edgar

Oh my goodness Edgar. Beautiful pictures! Reminded me of the beautiful flower shows in Boston, MA and Portland, ME. We would go every year and always looked forward to them. None down here in NC in our area. Thank you so much for sharing.

Beautiful! Was in SF a few weeks ago and the flowers were beautiful everywhere. Had the best cup of coffee in Little Italy! I need a refill.

WOW. That'll brighten a day! Just beautiful! I wonder where the flowers go when it's over.

WOW!!! Our Macy's in Oregon certainly doesn't do lavish decorating like that. Come to think of it, they don't have a big Thanksgiving Day parade either. One of the perks of living in the city is being treated to such events, I guess. Thanks for making the 'trip into town' to take photos and sharing them.

Beautiful floral displays! Thanks for sharing the pics!

Katherine said...

Oh W-O-W!!!

Gorgeouse. I just love Macy's. I am not a "trek to Mecca" shopper either, but when I'm home in NYC it's always Macy's....and the sad realization that I am hopelessly out of style!

How spectacular it must have been LIVE, but at least we got to see a bit of it! Thanks for sharing the Painted Garden.

Gorgeous!! Someone else posted the Colors of India for the Macy's display in Minneapolis. Both were so amazing. Thank you so much for sharing these pictures.

Marie said...

Wow, that is beautiful! Macy's should always look that pretty (for those of us that are frequent shoppers :D)

Jodi S said...

Wow what a gorgeous flower show! I'm jealous! Hope you enjoyed your time!

I was in SF this time last year and saw the fantastic floral displays in Macy's then, lovely to see your pictures of this year's display. It really is an amazing sight!
