The Macy’s Flower Show-Thank You To All!

Photo Apr 03, 1 38 53 PMThe 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.

 

Photo Apr 03, 1 08 12 PMOnce 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).

Macy’s Flower Show-Come by and see us!

Spring flowers are here in NYC.  For 41 years, Macy’s has welcomed spring with their annual Flower Show at their flagship location in Herald Square.  It truly is a New York City event that is not to be missed.    2015’s event is themed, Art in Bloom and is running from March 22 through April 4.    This year Macy’s has added an attraction that can’t be missed.  Sure they will have dramatic showpieces, and breath-taking displays of flowers guaranteed to bring a smile to all, but in addition, Starbright is thrilled to have been asked to present a Macy’s floral seminar for the third time.   Mark your calendars and set aside Friday, April 3 to come visit it us at Macy’s.  This year’s selected topic is classical floral designs with a Starbright spin.

Our Creative Director at the Macy’s Flower Show!

For 39 years, Macy’s has welcomed spring with their annual Flower Show.  A celebration of all the joy that flowers and plants bring to our lives, the Herald Square flagship store is decked to the gills with blooms and greens.  This year’s event was themed, The Painted Garden and featured arrangements and displays of plants native to South Asia.  The dramatic showpiece for this year was a life size elephant, elegantly draped with a blanket of flowering vegetation.

The other highlight of the Flower Show was the second appearance of Starbright Floral Design.  We were thrilled to be asked again this year to participate in one of the live floral design demonstration given throughout the two week long show.  Starbright’s resident performer/designer, Tom Sebenius lent his flair for the dramatic once again to the cause.  This year’s selected topic was succulents.

Tom demonstrated how to make a desert inspired planted garden to a knowledge hungry crowd gathered in the Fine China department on the eight floor of Macy’s.  Showing how sand, moss and stones will complement the strong and bold architecture of the unique succulents, Tom explained that succulents have become increasingly popular among Starbright customers.  Because the Flower Show is a celebration of spring, Tom also demonstrated how he often includes succulents in wedding flowers.  Much to the delight of the attendants, Tom fashioned a chic and modern bridal bouquet using orchids, arabicum, folded leaves and succulents that he showed how to wire and tape appropriately.

Macy’s has long been a mainstay of both New York City and America at large.  We are proud to have been included in their majestic and spectacular floral extravaganza.  Not only does Starbright appreciate being included in this long standing New York tradition, but we also join Macy’s in welcoming spring and saying thank you to the flora that makes this season sing!
