We are so beyond excited to announce the publication and launch of our first book
BLATHANNA: IRISH SPACES IN FLOWER.
Ruth, Kasia and Ultan have been working
tirelessly on this project for months and it truly is a labour of love to share with all our
customers. Inside, are stunning colour photographs of locations from all over Ireland, both
historic and cultural which have been adorned with Appassionata’s signature blooms.
This is an opportunity for Appassionata to share with our many loyal customers over the
years, floral enthusiasts and newcomers to the flower world what the company’s ethos, style
and approach to the craft is all about. Appassionata’s work brings us to places all over the
country, creating arrangements that draw inspiration from Irish heritage and all over the
globe. The seasons and cadence of weather also plays a massive part. It is this flow of colours
each season and mix of both old and new we have filled our book with.
So much of this book is a love letter to the island we live on. Some of the locations featured
are King’s Inns, The Westbury Hotel and the Museum Building at Trinity College meshed
with wonderful woodland locations like Glendalough and Cloghleagh Bridge. Each location
is iconic in its own way and serves as a setting for each arrangement imbuing each scene with
a different attitude, light and quality, not to mention colour and all types of flowers.
This year, Appassionata will be celebrating its 15 th birthday and it seems only fitting to send
this book out into the world to be able to share the celebration with everyone.
BLATHANNA will make the perfect Christmas gift for any flower or art lover. A beautifully
bound, green, hardback cover encasing hundreds of stunning images sure to inspire and ignite
We cannot wait to share it with you!
