Bord Bia Bloom | Phoenix Park, Dublin | June 2nd – June 6th
It could be a megawatt smile or a radiant glow, a brilliant hat or style down pat, dazzling designer or bargain chic, a child’s delight or love at first sight or maybe even just a sunny disposition!
Emily Murphy and Jan Gray from Cobh in Co. Cork were dazzling Brightest at Bloom finalists in the blazing sunshine at Bloom by Bord Bia in Phoenix Park when the event last ran in 2019. Now organisers are calling for entries from Cork to be crowned Solus Brightest at Bloom 2022. It is open to ladies, gentlemen, children, people of all abilities and sunny dispositions young. Solus Brightest at Bloom is a nod to Ladies Day but is all-inclusive. It is not about fashion but more about luminosity, brightness and light. The final will be held at Bord Bia Bloom on Bank Holiday Monday, June 6th at 2 pm when the yellow carpet is rolled out at The Eureka Garden association with Solus light bulbs.
Solus is inviting people to simply take a bright selfie and upload it to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #BrightestatBloom. Finalists will be invited to attend Bloom on Sunday, June 6th to the ‘yellow carpet’ where a winner will be chosen at The Eureka Garden in association with Solus light bulbs. The Solus team will also be busy hunting for megawatt smiles and all sorts of sunny dispositions amongst visitors to Bloom from June 2nd to June 6th. Solus are offering a prize for the winner of Brightest at Bloom of a VIP helicopter ride and finalists will receive a hamper of goodies from Solus at the final.
Bord Bia Bloom, Ireland’s largest and most spectacular gardening event, takes place in the Phoenix Park, Dublin from Thursday, June 2nd to Monday, June 6th. Now a key feature of the June Bank Holiday Weekend, Bord Bia’s annual showcase of the best of Ireland’s horticulture and food industry will once again feature a range of impressive show gardens, food features and family entertainment. As part of the Solus ‘Planet First’ sustainability initiative, Solus will gift visitors of Bloom over 30,000 of their new sustainable shopping bags which are hugely popular at the event each year
The Eureka Garden in association with Solus light bulbs was designed by sculptor Niall Deacon and inspired by Archimedes’ eureka moment’. It brings visitors on a sensory journey from the sauna cabin at the entrance, through lush, green planting, to a plunge pool that Niall has carved from a boulder on his farm in Wexford. The garden offers a sanctuary where you can switch off, relax and reflect on life. A large mirror in a carved granite frame provides a focal point and reflects the layered, naturalistic, woodland planting. Tall, arching trees form a canopy and provide shade for the wide palette of woodland perennials. Subtle flowers are dotted around the garden naturally and informally, including Magnolia x wieseneri, Corydalis elata and Darmera peltata. The plunge pool in the far corner of this small show garden provides a haven to immerse yourself in the garden, test the Archimedes principle, or simply reflect on your own eureka moment
