Blooming Lovely – we’re on the road to Ireland’s Largest Garden Festival!

Nervous but excited about out first trade stand Bloom which is just 4 days away. We’ve spent the last few days finalising our stand layout and getting everything in place. Bloom is open to the public on Thursday 31st until June 4th and our plans are well in place…

I’ve gone to the show the last few years for the day out and also to see if there was any business like Pretty Bird in existence. Returning year on year, we never saw anything quite like what we had planned for Pretty Bird to become and what it is now. So we are very excited to be going back this year with purpose!


Those of you who know me and have worked with me, know I have a slight touch of OCD! So of course I want everything to be perfect! We hope we have created a really eye-catching stand that will draw people in to see our fabulous product ranges and also to say hello!


See snapshot right of my Pinterest board – we’ve hopefully created something like the below, but on a shoe-string budget! 😉 Expect something vibrant and flowering at stand F12 in the Indoor Garden and Fashion Tent!


Last year I have to say I absolutley loved two very different gardens. Des Kingston’s Rustica Hibernia Garden was really special – a treasure trove of antiques, beautiful planting and quirkiness. He was pretty cool too and more than happy to stand in for a pic and a chat with everyone!

I also absolutely loved Leonie Cornelius “Everyone has a Dream” garden. It was so serene, so tranquil.

Can’t wait to see what Bloom 2018 has in store!
