About Us

As founder of My Pretty Princess Party, I was determined to achieve one goal–bring dreams into reality. Ever since I was a little girl I dreamed about being a princess. When I go to little kids parties and I see their faces light up when they see me, or my other performers walk in, I feel so fulfilled. Being able to help children see their heroes in real life makes me feel like I am helping to fulfill little children’s dreams.

I personally design and make all of the costumes that my characters wear. I take pride and responsibility in providing the most authentic character experience for those I entertain. I learned the art of sewing while working in a theatre department’s costume shop. I gained a passion for character role playing while in high school but further developed my skills while working on my undergraduate degree in Humanities and Theatre. 

I am so grateful for you in being interested in my company. I promise that you will not regret booking your party through My Pretty Princess Party. We are determined in creating the best experience for you and your party guests.

As a company we are dedicated to creating a magical experience at every party.

We accomplish this by remembering that we are Making Dreams Come True!

Thank you,
