Designers, Moms and party planners, Saewon and Ranhee started Merrilulu in 2017 to make parents lives a little bit easier. Frustrated by planning their own kids’ birthdays, they set out to create party décor that’s better designed and easy to execute. Make memories. Not stress!
Both founders are passionate about design and met while studying at the Rhode Island School of Design. Ranhee was Design Director for eight years at Skip Hop and Saewon had success running her popular Etsy shop, The Paper Wonderland. Friends first, business second, their partnership and love for creating special moments is the glue that defines Merrilulu. When they’re not chasing after their kids (five total between them), they’re huddled at Starbucks coming up with new themes and ways to bring turn-key party planning solutions to busy parents.
We’re determined to help parents take pride in their parties, joy in the planning process, and focus on celebrating life’s special moments.
