About Cristy Posten

I’m the founder and voice of Pretty My Party and your personal party stylist for birthday parties, celebrations, and holidays. I can’t wait to help you plan your parties!

I have a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Arizona State University and a master’s degree in communications from Marywood University. After college, I started my career in journalism and worked in local media for 17 years. I’m also a wife and mom of 3 boys from Scranton, Pennsylvania.

I absolutely love parties and entertaining, but it wasn’t until my first son was born in 2011 that I began to style photoshoots and children’s parties. During this time, Pretty My Party was born!
