The Pumpkin & Posey Story


Hi there! Pumpkin & Posey was founded in 2015 by Irish Art Director and Graphic Designer Jo McAree. Jo has an Honors Degree in Visual Communications/GraphicDesign from D.I.T, Dublin and has worked as an Art Director/Graphic Designer for companies such as Rothco Advertising, Dublin, Saatchi and Saatchi, New Zealand as well as Lecturer at Massey University, New Zealand and South Essex College, UK.
After an around the world, working and travelling trip, which lead to meeting her partner Brett on a dive boat in Vietnam (long story, don't ask) two beautiful children were created, nicknamed Pumpkin and Posey (Harry and Primrose). After many sleepless nights (11 months to be exact!), the delirium finally got to Jo and she decided to follow her secret dream; part time stay at home mum, part time owner of her own design business.
The store is a celebration of all things super cool for children and parents alike. Celebrating life's special moments, such as births, weddings, birthdays and just lovely designs for your home, all designed or hand picked by Jo.
Pumpkin & Posey is based in beautiful Lady Bay, Nottingham.
