Macy’s Flower Show – Philadelphia – Grand Court 4/5/09 – 4/19/09

Last week I took my regular short cut through Macy’s and saw a sign:

The Macy’s Philadelphia Flower Show will be showcased in the Grand Court at Macy’s Center City, the site of Wanamaker’s flower shows from the 1930s through the early 1970s. For this year’s Flower Show, we’re proud to be partnering with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, founded in 1827. The PHS runs the Philadelphia Flower Show, the world’s oldest and largest indoor Flower Show.

Featuring stunning landscapes, celebrity guests and renowned floral designers, Dream in Color will transform our Center City store into a vibrant, colorful dreamscape, showcasing unique garden environments overflowing with thousands of exotic trees and flowering plants.

1PM – Fashion and home designer Rebecca Moses makes a special appearance to introduce her new Heart Soul Style Summer Entertaining Collection exclusively at Macy’s. Inspired by her life in Italy, Rebecca will demonstrate how to create three affordably beautiful table settings with her colorful, whimsical and refreshing new collection, just in time for spring. Although most of the displays are on the first and 3rd floors, springtime flows onto the sales floor too.
