I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Where-To-Go Wednesday - Macy's Flower Show 2017

What: Macy's Annual Flower Show

Where: Macy's Herald Square
             34th Street
             New York, NY

Who: Everyone

When: Now through April 9, 2017

Me- Every year for about two weeks Macy's has a flower show. Every year there is a different theme. This year's theme was carnival. It was pretty. They had a lot of colorful flowers. They had a ferris wheel. They had horses, a unicorn, a dragon, a rabbit and a lion. They were the animals from a merry-go-round. The ferris wheel was not really big enough for people to ride on. The merry-go-round animals were but you couldn't really ride on them. They weren't really on merry-go-round. They were just all in different places and had flowers all round them. They were a lot of people at Macy's Flower show. There was a lot more people there than last year. It was hard to get near all the flowers. It was still worth it to go though because the flowers were all so pretty. I look forward to the Macy's Flower show next year. I wonder what the theme will be then.

Mom - Every Spring for two weeks the first floor of Macy's in Herald Square is awash in colorful flowers. This year's show opened on March 26 and will close on April 9. The display of flowers is very beautiful. However, the attraction of Macy's Flower show is more than just  the lovely floral displays. Every year's show has a different fun theme. Last years theme was flowers from around the US, and they had different flowers representing different regions of the country. This year's theme is Carnival. The brightly decorated arrays of flowers will definitely make you think of Carnivals. There are ticket booths decorated with flowers. There are merry-go-around animals decorated with flowers. There is a Ferris Wheel. There is a section named after the Midway, there is a section called Fun and Games and more.  If you are in New York City this week, and you have some time to spare and not a lot of money, and you want to see something beautiful and nostalgic, you might want to visit Macy's Flower show. Just be aware the exhibit is quite popular and at times the crowds can be quite large.  It still worth it, however, if you really love flowers and/or you really love carnivals or just want to see something really pretty.

Macy's Flower show also takes place in several other Macy's throughout the country.  Go to http://www.visitmacysusa.com/macys-iconic-events for more information.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for Theater Thursday.


  1. The flowers are beautiful! I love the way they are displayed. What a fun day this would have been to stroll around amidst beauty and get some good display ideas.

    1. It is even more beautiful in person. Thanks for visiting Says Me Says Mom and for your comment.

  2. They do such a lovely job every year. Didn't see it in person this year but I was lucky enough to be in the city last year while it was going on. I work in a nursery so flowers are my thing!

    1. This is only our second year but we love it. Thanks for visiting Says Me Says Mom and for your comment.
