Careers

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.

Meri Meri continues to reinvent the luxury children’s birthday party with couture-quality dress-up and a newly introduced range of sustainable partyware.

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