Our Story

Princess Party by MC is a family owned, mother-daughter team, that provides incredible attention to your child’s events. Our combined expertise in performing arts and party planning creates a truly magical experience.  We pride ourselves on bringing the highest level of detail to our characters/princesses.  We can assure you that your child will be thrilled and delighted with our princess interactions.

In 2018 we started Princess Party by MC by simply wanting to have a fundraiser for our neighbors and friends, The Palermo family. Their daughter, Kate, had been diagnosed with Leukemia.  We wanted to do something special, bring attention, & show our love. 

We spread word through our neighborhood and the result was magical. So many kids and families joined us in celebrating Kate. We have donated over $2,500 to Lurie Children's Hospital in Kate Palermo's name. ​
