OMY Design & Play is well known for it’s great big coloring posters but recently they introduced a great activity for the little hands during a birthday party. Next to plates, placemats and cups, there are balloons, hats and garlands that you can personalize. The lovely illustrations are engaging and entertaining and are a great way to spark children’s fantasy.

Behind OMY are two designers, Elvire Laurent and Marie-Cerise Lichtlé, graphic artists and illustrators, both graduated from the Arts-Déco of Paris. After creating their own graphic arts studio in 2005, they combined their enthusiasm and experience to form OMY Design & Play, a line of cheerful and creative products.

They regularly collaborate with different partners on several projects, and in the case of the paper plates with My Little Day, an online boutique shop dedicated to children’s birthdays that sells only non-branded products

Of course you don’t need to throw a party to have an excuse to use these items :-). Just throw a couple placemats in your bag the next time you go and check out a new restaurant with your mini me.
