They say to “bloom where you are planted,” and what better place than at New York’s at! From March 20 to April 3 at Macy’s Herald Square, commemorate our country’s vast variety of flowers and sceneries.

With the help from partners including Girl Scouts, Homewood Suites by Hilton, Krazy Glue, Royal Caribbean International and Sinclair, this two-week celebration is action-packed and picked to perfection.

Stop by LeSportsac to create your very own floral crown and when you get hungry, you can head to GODIVA for a chocolatier demonstration that includes a chocolate dipped strawberry tasting! Listen to acclaimed a cappella group, The Filharmonic or watch a performance by cast members of the hit Broadway musical “Beautiful—The Carole King Musical.”

Make it into a family fun day with face painting, arts and crafts and balloon twisting in the Kids’ Department. Girl scouts will be assisting in creating nature journals, as well.

Perhaps the most rewarding part of this event is making a difference. The Juniors’ department is teaming up with Operation PROM to donate a dress for every prom dress sold. Tackle girl power with flower power, am I right?  There will even be a special performance by YouTube singing sensation Andie Case. Eliminate the stress of dress shopping (trust me, it’s still fresh in my mind from three years ago) by turning your outfit hunt into a Prom Shopping Party with Macy’s.
