From Easter which is round the corner, to bar mitzvah’s, first birthdays, tenth birthdays or Christmas, there will be something for every special occasion. And behind it all, is founder, Meredithe.
“I’ve always loved to create, the process of coming up with an idea and bringing it to life. I’ve made thousands of things over the years, some brilliant and some not so much, but it’s easy to choose my favorite. When Meri Meri first began, it was just me, my kitchen table, a bunch of cards and a huge pot of glitter. These days, I’m lucky enough to work with an incredibly talented group of designers and artworkers in our Cheltenham studio.” Meredithe says.
MERI MERI was founded over 35 years ago. With a close eye for trends and market patterns, this allowed them to keep their fingers on the pulse and get their products front and center. But most importantly, they operate as a design studio, a network of creatives with one key mantra.
“We believe in childhood. We believe that those first years are magic, and sacred. We believe in the beauty and joy of family, and we put that belief into everything we do. Our lifestyle and celebration products may be in stores and shows all over the world, but our focus is firmly at home.” Says Meredithe
Meri Meri has every product imaginable. From timeless designs to wacky and out there to make a party really stand out. A burst of creativity for every occasion and a huge list of more decorations for the dedicated customers! Meri Meri, we are in awe of your work.
