14 December: Meet Emma and birdyhome
Today we have Emma Cathie, Acting Category Manager for Home, holding this beautiful Personalised Framed Heart Print by birdyhome, which has been created especially for her! Simon is Emma’s fiancé, and today is six months until their wedding day.
Emma and Simon are getting married by the beach in beautiful Cornwall. It’s a place that is special to both of them, and having considered getting married abroad they decided to opt for somewhere more local, where they could be surrounded by family and friends. The venue they’ve chosen is modern, and the views speak for themselves, so Emma and Simon are keeping the decor simple with lots of flowers and hurricane lanterns. Their personalised heart will be proudly displayed at the evening reception!
Emma will be enjoying a lively Christmas at home in Gloucestershire. There will be 15 members of the family jostling around the Christmas table, and everyone gets to unwrap a present hidden in the Christmas tree. It must be quite a tree Emma!
Graphic designer Deborah Hutchings was inspired to launch birdyhome thanks to her love of all things quirky, nostalgic and vintage. Her unusual creations make perfect gifts, and her Personalised Framed Heart Print certainly sums up what shopping at notonthehighstreet.com is all about – customers investing thought and care into their gift choices for the ones they love most.
Christmas starts on Christmas Eve for Deborah, when she goes to the Christingle service with her family; it’s a truly magical moment when the lights are dimmed and the church is filled with candlelight. Her favourite treat is homemade Christmas pudding, and her preferred soundtrack to the festivities is Fairy Tale of New York by Kirsty McColl and the Pogues.
