Macy’s Downtown Minneapolis Store Showcases a Floral Spectacular


Chicago, IL – February 19, 2014 – After a blustery winter comes the renewal of spring and the famed Macy’s Flower Show® with Gardens by Bachman’s, where fantasy and discovery await! Set to kick-off the season of flora, a multicolored jeweled splendor takes root at Macy’s Downtown Minneapolis store. From Sunday, March 23 through Sunday, April 6, 2014, The Secret Garden, the theme of this year’s floral extravaganza will offer spectators a peek behind the magic and majesty of lush landscapes.


“This year, we’ll travel on a magical journey of discovery. Macy’s own secret garden will be filled with wonder and fantasy. Lush foliage and fragrant flowers delight at every turn. As you pass through the gateway you will be enveloped by rich and dynamic colors, elaborate scenic elements and breath-taking landscaping that will showcase hidden floral treasures,” said Mike Gansmoe, the producer of the show.


For nearly 50 years, Macy’s Flower Show has delighted generations of floral aficionados in the Twin Cities with over-the-top presentations of sumptuous gardens that showcase millions of live flowers, plants and trees from around the globe, all designed by Bachman’s. Born of many terrains, Macy’s Flower Show features disparate flora blooming in unison despite their various internal climatic DNA. Taking root in unexpected settings including store countertops, specially designed architecture and even full-scale auditorium presentations, Macy’s Flower Show is staged in unique fashion.


In addition to serving as the official celebration for the start of the spring season, Macy’s Flower Show is also a prime showcase for some of Bachman’s most renowned floral and entertaining designers. These décor wizards will bring to life the rotating Flower Show favorite – Bouquet of the Day. The one-of-kind floral creations are stunning floor-to-ceiling, over-the-top installations that interpret the theme of the show through the lens of each designer’s unique aesthetic. These limited-time masterpieces are always a highlight of the show and will be in place on the first floor in the Cosmetics Department.


The Macy’s Flower Show is also the perfect backdrop for two weeks of in-store special events, including fashion shows and cooking demonstrations that will delight floral fanatics while celebrating the rejuvenating power of the season.


Free to the public, Macy’s Flower Show will be open during regular store hours.


Macy’s Flower Show in Minneapolis gives special thanks to Bachman’s and Dolce by Dolce & Gabbana for making this beloved Twin Cities tradition possible.
