Thanks for joining us in 2018
in 2018 at Macy's
Chicago. Gorgeous blooms.
Fantasy flora and
season’s “Once Upon a
Springtime” show imagined an
amazing world of wonder. It was
to lose yourself in all of the
breathtaking delights as you entered a
land typically seen in
only the most
fanciful fairy tales. In our spectacular
settings, heroic characters
triumphed over competing
forces to usher in the beauty of spring.

Shoppers curled up for story time with Lewis the Duck as he shared his flights of fantasy. The garden was full of character and color with a rich variety of florals including calla lily, geraniums and snap dragons.

TThere once was a beautiful princess named , who lived in a kingdom called . Each year, she'd ask her (aka Mother Nature) to change the cold winter weather to the warmer temps of spring. Mother Nature would always grant her wish to change the seasons.
One winter, however, , the wicked Snow Queen, was determined to not let the cold come to an end. “” she shouted, as she cast a magical spell. Snow fell heavily for . “There’s only one season now—it’ll be winter forever!”
The Princess felt totally and she went to Mother Nature for guidance. “You need a potion to reverse the Queen’s spell,” she advised. “Find the Sage, a wise old shaman. He’ll have what you need.”
SSo the Princess bundled up, left her kingdom and trudged across the forest through the snowstorm. Soon she encountered a family of talking who offered her cookies to snack on during her journey. “Have you seen the shaman?” the Princess asked. CONTINUE
“He finds comfort at the inn down this path,” one creature answered. “Look for a Homewood Suites sign.” When the Princess arrived, she quickly convinced the shaman to hand over the spell-breaking potion. “” she exclaimed. “We must hurry back to the kingdom to save spring!” The shaman and the Princess had a visit with Sinclair's Dino who wished them good luck on their journey as they filled up the with gas at a nearby station and they were off!
BBack home, Mother Nature had already urged a hibernating dragon to awaken and melt the snow with his fire breath. The Princess handed vials of potion to and to spread all across the lands. In a flurry of glorious activity, butterflies carried the concoction into an ominously cloudy sky. Then, as if the heavens had opened up, sun rays began to beam bright again. Fields of flowers bloomed and blossomed into life. And, miraculously, spring had returned.
