The Story

Meri Meri designs everything fun for life’s celebrations – partyware, seasonal decorations, heirloom-quality children’s gifts and dreamy dress-up. Our products are inspired by the imagination of childhood and rooted in sophisticated design.
The story began in 1985 when founder Meredithe Stuart-Smith sold Meri Meri’s first range of glittery greeting cards to Bergdorf Goodman in New York City. Tableware and bunting soon followed, along with the invention of the ‘cupcake kit’ in 2008.
Founder and President, Meredithe Stuart-Smith

Now selling in 69 countries, in over 5,000 shops and online. Meri Meri has offices in Cheltenham, UK and Reno, US.

The Meri Meri Story

The ‘maker’ spirit that began at Meredithe’s kitchen table in Los Angeles thirty years ago, has found its way to our three-floor studio in Cheltenham, England. Everything we produce undergoes an imaginative evolution, starting with that spark of a new idea through to the careful choice of a finish to make a product perfect.
Fun, quality, and superior design drives our team of talented designers, illustrators, and crafters to conjure up our latest products.
