SERI KERTZNER

CHIEF PARTY OFFICER, MOM BOSS, egg lover

Welcome to the party!

I grew up in Toronto, but my very broad childhood imagination kept me dreaming of a life in New York City. In 2001, I made that dream a reality by landing a job in finance at Kate Spade, later moving onto production for Club Monaco and J. Crew.

Shortly after I moved to New York, I met my husband, and 10 years later came our first son. That’s when I made the decision to leave the corporate world and start a business revolving around my dream of partying for a living.

So Little Miss Party was born- a unique event planning and styling company that focuses on the special details tailored to each of our clients. From custom designs to day-of coordination, you can truly be a guest at your own party with LMP behind you.

In order to make Little Miss Party successful it was imperative to build a team who could join the party with enthusiasm, dynamic personalities and creativity.

Here we are today, a group of incredible women who live and love to party.

MAGGIE ANTALEK

creative director, a.k.a. "crafty maggie"

Maggie was raised in Buffalo, but moved to Boston in 2010 to attend Northeastern University. Her love for DIY crafts, styling, and design made her the perfect candidate for LMP, starting remotely in 2015 and officially making her way to NYC in 2017. You may even know her as @craftymaggie, a nickname coined by Seri when Maggie first starting creating in-house party decor and DIY blog projects. She loves every minute of the jam packed creative work days with the LMP family. When she’s not directing photo shoots or hand-crafting custom decor, she's working on her jewelry and watercolor collection, Ramblerose.

NATALIE CARDENAS

DESIGN + EVENTS ASSOCIATE, floral guru

Natalie was born and raised in the suburbs of North Jersey. Her love for parties began at a young age while working at a family owned flower shop where she designed floral arrangements for a variety of events. She later attended Rutgers University where she majored in Art and minored in Entrepreneurship. In her final year of school, she discovered Little Miss Party while searching for an internship opportunity and couldn’t have been happier. Outside of LMP, Natalie is a huge foodie, always finding new places to explore her tastes. She enjoys indulging in a good Netflix show and spending time with loved ones.

Shaylan was raised in southern New Hampshire and attended Northeastern University in Boston, where she received her BSBA in Marketing with a minor in Music Industry. Shaylan brings over 15 years of events, entertainment, public relations and experiential marketing experience to Little Miss Party.

MICHELLE BACHMAN

cofounder + ultimate foodie

Michelle was born to entertain. Coming from a family of professional chefs, she’s been in the kitchen since she could walk. In an attempt to satisfy her other passion she studied Fashion Merchandising at Virginia Tech and later moved to NYC where she worked in the industry for Macy’s and J.Crew for almost 10 years. But her desire to entertain and play hostess never wavered. Michelle made the decision to leave the world of clothes and team up with her friend and colleague from J.Crew to fulfill her love of cooking, styling and partying.
