Every year Macy’s welcomes Spring with the annual Flower Show—a magnificent themed floral extravaganza that takes place in three flagship stores across the country. In 2019, Macy’s Herald Square in New York City, Macy’s State Street in Chicago and Macy’s Union Square in San Francisco celebrated a more than 70-year floral tradition with Journey to Paradisios, Operation: Inspiration, an otherworldly realm of glorious blossoms, lush plant life and amazing flora where visitors experienced what could exist in the great beyond.
For more than 70 years, Macy’s Flower Show has delighted generations of floral aficionados with over-the-top presentations of lavish gardens that showcase millions of live flowers, plants, and trees from around the globe. Native to many different landscapes, Macy’s Flower Show offers visitors a unique opportunity to enjoy these florals blooming in unison, despite their distinct climatic DNA.
Taking root in unexpected settings, such as store countertops, windows and specially designed architecture, including grand bridges, columns, and topiaries, Macy’s Flower Show is staged in distinct fashion at each of the three locations. The show is free to the public and open during regular show hours.
The 2019 Flower Show, Journey to Paradisios, was a space-inspired floral fantasy featuring marvelous celestial blooms. Transporting fans into a multi-dimensional world of space, adventure and discovery through flowers and eccentrically landscaped gardens, Journey to Paradisios celebrated the wonder and mystery of the cosmos.

In addition to the planetary exploration, Flower Show spectators had the opportunity to enjoy a host of themed in-store events including floral, food, and fashion demonstrations, celebrity appearances, and more during the two weeks the show was in full bloom. Attendees could also purchase Flower Show-themed memorabilia—from Mission Control and Flight Crew totes to pin packs and Comos and Rocket pouches.
