Categories: ChristmasFlowers

      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 others. We cannot wait to share it with you!
