What a Blooming Weekend?

Despite the poor weather conditions on Sunday, Bloom was blooming this weekend and welcomed almost 80,000 visitors to the Phoenix Park Dublin.
Bloom is Ireland's largest gardening, food and family event.  There was something for everyone at the Bloom event, from live cookery and craft demonstrations to free gardening advice/workshops from the experts and great live entertainment for all the family.  Kids can attend Bloom for free, which makes it a more affordable day for all the family.
At 2012's event, the Brasserie Restaurants at Bewley’s Hotels sponsored one of the gardens which combined the artistic direction from Gold Medal Winner Gary Hanaphy with the relaxed and informal dining atmosphere of The Brasserie's at Bewley's Hotels.  
The 'Table For 4' garden won a Gold Medal.  ‘Table for 4’ garden involves al fresco dining and entertaining in a plush, luxury setting, where the colour palette of varying shades of green has the therapeutic effect of allowing guests to relax, de-stress and thoroughly enjoy their dining experience.
The Brasserie Group Executive Head Chef Brian McCarthy was busy cooking up a storm for all the winners of the ‘Table For 4’ competition, Congratulations Ruth Rock, Anna Hannigan and John Taylor.
We had a number of familiar faces who dropped by to view our award winning garden, we were delighted to show off our award winning garden to Pat Kenny, Mimi Murray, Corinna Hardgrave and many more. Thanks to all.

We would like to thank everyone that came and viewed our ‘Table For 4’ garden and we are looking forward to seeing you all at Bloom 2013.
