Macy’s Annual Flower Show NYC 2022

Hi friends, welcome back! Each year, the Macy’s at Herald Square (34th Street) is adorned with beautiful flower arrangements to celebrate the spring season. Per Macys, “This year’s Macy’s Flower Show will bring floral beauty and dazzling scents together to create a multi-sensory experience”. The free show runs from March 27th until April 10th and can be found in the fragrance and handbag departments closest to the 35th Street and Broadway entrances.

This was my first time visiting the flower show, but the inaugural show began in the 1970s. I usually try to avoid this area unless it’s Christmas, but a beautiful flower show seemed like a good reason to return. I went on a Monday afternoon hoping to avoid the inevitable crowds and I will say, it was a very pleasant experience compared to the craziness in December.

This year’s show is a combination of flowers mixed with fragrances from Good Girl by Carolina Herrera, Miss Dior by Christian Dior, Daisy by Marc Jacobs, Donna Born in Roma by Valentino, and FlowerBomb Ruby Orchid by Viktor&Rolf. The mezzanine level hosts a unique display for each fragrance and I loved how different each fragrance was presented. They all smelled heavenly, but my favorite is probably the Miss Dior.


I’m all smiles crossing the Macy’s Flower Show off my Spring Bucket List 🙂 I thought the winter weather was over, but it was only 30* in NYC, so I begrudgingly bundled up.

I loved being surrounded by the bright and cheerful blooms, it was a nice oasis on the bitterly cold day.

As much as I miss the cute Christmas displays, I thought Macy’s did an excellent job adorning the exterior with bright, bold, and beautiful blooms.

I spy with my little eye the Empire State Building in the Macy’s window 🙂

I had a delightful time meandering through the Macy’s Flower Show and would highly recommend checking it out if you’re visiting NYC in the spring! I’d also recommend coming during the week to get uninterrupted pictures because Macy’s get extremely busy with shoppers and people trying to capture the perfect Instagram shot. I spent about half an hour viewing the florals, but you could spend as little or as long as you’d like here. The Macy’s Flower Show is definitely worth the trip and I’m looking forward to crossing more items off my NYC Spring Bucket List!

  1. So nice to see the blooms and green of spring Lyssy. Looks like Macy’s does it up right. Love the shot of the ESB with the overlay of flower reflections on it. Thanks for sharing. Allan

    1. It is nice to see the hopes of spring in the city! Glad you liked my artistic shot, seems like a picture you might take 🙂

  2. Department stores that put on decorative displays like this are worth a visit. I’ll gladly pay a bit more for their goods versus a warehouse like superstore. Thanks for sharing the beauty and joy. 😊

    1. I agree! It’s a good way to give back to the community while also gaining sales and shoppers. Glad you enjoyed 🙂

  3. Simply seeing the word “Macy’s” made me smile. What a festival of vibrant colours, that last shot through the window with The Empire State in the background is a work of art. At first glance I thought it was a hologram!

    1. Thank you! I was trying to get the window display and the Empire State just jumped out at me. It was my favorite picture of the day 🙂

  4. For a second I thought that was YOU in the dress in the ESB photo. Macy’s must be doing very well to spend whatever it costs to create this flower show (and other seasonal displays). You wouldn’t know it if you went to our store here in Colorado Springs. Macy’s anchors a dying mall, and has zero displays to lure you inside. Also, your comment about visiting during off-peak times made me think of the athletic club we belong to – I’d recommend it the same way. You don’t want to be there around 9am or 5pm on weekdays or you’re going to have a whole bunch of workout buddies.

    1. Ha I am not very fashionable! The Macy’s near my parents is pretty rough too. Seems malls area. thing of the past. Would be sad if Macy’s went under and this store got shut, but it always seems so busy. Ah yes I am not a fan of crowded gyms. We are lucky because our building has a full gym that only residents can opt to join. Back in MI I used to get to the gym by 6:30 to avoid the traffic and crowds, seems like a whole different person of myself, anything before 7:30 seems early haha.
