The anticipation or excitement was building for days. In the 41 year history of the Macy’s flower show this had only happened twice before, Starbright would be appearing. Once the news was out, the lines started forming. Like the Beatles in 1965, Starbright was taking the city and Macy’s by storm. Our fans, affectionately named “Starbraniacs”, were camped out for days (Macy’s would tell you just under 10 minutes) just for a chance to get a glimpse of our leader and creative inspirator, Nic Faitos. This impromptu picture was taken of Nic with some lucky fans who finally got the chance to meet the supreme leader. The fans, never knowing when they would ever get the chance to meet Nic again (Nic would tell you just come on by the store he would love to meet you) nearly fainted from their joy.
Once the crowd settled down, the floral demonstration began. This year’s demonstration centered around classic floral designing tools including designing with floral foam. The picture shows Nic demonstrating how to properly place a flower stem in floral foam. In the background you can see Socrates, a Starbright floral artist, preparing a one of a kind bouquet to be given to randomly chosen lucky winner. The lucky winner was believed to have stated that this was the single most glorious moment in her life.
Macy’s is a mainstay of both New York City and America at large. We were proud to have been included in their majestic and spectacular floral extravaganza and sincerely thank Macy’s and all the attendees for the opportunity and their support. We look forward to being asked back in the near future (if the Starbraniacs promise to behave).
Starbright Floral Design is the “Official Florist of the City that Never Sleeps” and we deliver smiles through flowers. Sometimes we try to deliver smiles by poking fun at ourselves in this blog, hope it worked.
