NEW YORK, N.Y. , Sun. Mar. 22, 2015: You know spring is just around the corner when the flowers arrive at the Macy’s Flower Show, a tradition that has wowed millions of visitors for the past 41 years that was opened by Macy’s executives and Martha Stewart.
This year is even more special, as history is made with the first Chinese-themed garden in the Show, from March 22 through April 4th. The Sino-American Friendship Association (SAFA) showcases two extravagant “Explore Beautiful China” gardens at the “Art in Bloom” themed show this year on the highly trafficked mezzanine level at 34th Street in Manhattan.
The unique creation features a dress handmade from Chinese red envelopes as the centerpiece of the good luck and fortune gardens, which fills with flowers and traditional costumes representing the Chinese culture, and presents the idea of “moving upward.” Through the beauty of art, nature, and culture, the Chinese specialty gardens at the Macy’s Flower Show presents an unforgettable sight.
Chinese gardens highlight not only the beauty of China’s landscapes and people, but also showcase a video, which is displayed in store and outside the Macy’s building on its jumbotron LED screens, to demonstrate that the programs are empowering women by Sino-American Friendship Association and its member partner, China Women’s Development Foundation, as well as the Pink Love Initiative for Women by Didi DaChe.
