SERI KERTZNER

PARTY BOSS, SpiderMOM, 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 Antalek is the newest Member of the LMP Team. Maggie was raised in Buffalo, but moved to Boston to attend Northeastern University. Her friendship with Abby through Northeastern and her love for DIY crafts, styling, and design made her the perfect connection to LMP. You may even know her as @craftymaggie. Now officially a resident of NYC, she loves every minute of the jam packed creative work days with the LMP family. When she’s not directing LMP photo shoots, she's working on her jewelry and watercolor collection, Ramblerose.

MICHELLE BACHMAN

cofounder + ultimate foodie

Michelle Bachman 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.
