About Pretty My Party

Hello and welcome to Pretty My Party! I’m Cristy, the girl behind the blog. I’m so glad you found me and I hope you enjoy reading!

If you LOVE parties, entertaining, holidays, and pretty and creative details, you’re in the right place! I absolutely LOVE featuring stylish party and holiday ideas, recipes, crafts, and more here on Pretty My Party!

I’ve always been obsessed with pretty details and making everything look perfect! Call it Type A – that’s me! I absolutely LOVE entertaining and enjoying and celebrating life. My obsession with details really went full circle after I found out I was having a baby boy! I was so excited to pick out cute little outfits for photo shoots, setting up the perfect jungle-inspired nursery, and of course planning celebrations for all of this milestones! Since planning my son’s 1st birthday party, my parties have been features on major websites and in magazines, which you can check out below!

In 2012, I started Pretty My Party as a creative outlet for myself, and since I was working in journalism and knew all about writing, editing and content creation, I took a leap of faith and starting blogging about my party planning obsession! By this time, I was planning my son’s 1st birthday party, which was a blast! The theme was a colorful modern jungle theme, inspired by his nursery. After that, I found that there were moms just like me, who LOVED planning parties!!!

Since I’ve been following party and wedding blogs for years, my friends and family were always asking me to help them plan their parties, so I knew the blog would be a perfect way to share my ideas with the world! I LOVE helping people plan parties even online! I love getting emails from readers asking for my help and I love sharing where I shop for the best party products. Just think of me as your personal party planner!

Whether you’re a parent or grandparent, bride-to-be, party or event planner, blogger, or in the creative industry, there’s something here for everyone! I hope you enjoy this blog as much as I do and I hope it inspires you when you’re planning your next party!
