I read this on Katie McCoy's HeliumBalloon blog: Macy's latest window display is called "Dream in Color." It's an homage to Spring and living in harmony with nature.

Constructed by local artist, Eloise Corr Danch, these displays looks as fragile and delicate as a real flower.

Eloise's paper flower sculptures are on view through April 19th in the windows at Macy’s flagship Herald Square store on 34th St. between Broadway and 7th Ave.

The installation features 20 ornate headdresses and more than 2,500 paper flowers strung into colorful, swirling garlands.

Macy's also offers free 20 minute tours of spectacular imported gardens:

The Paradise Garden features over 300 different species of tropical plants, from green palms to exotic flowers. The Woodland Garden celebrates nature's beauty with annuals, perennials, trees and shrubs. The Community Garden reflects and honors the efforts of the several hundred community gardens that are scattered throughout the five boroughs of NYC. The Living Garden is Macy's salute to the Plastic Lawn Flamingo and its impact on American gardens. Lastly, and my favorite, is The Pink Garden featuring an ornamental Peach Tree that does not bear fruit. Check it out! Suzi
