Yes, you can be a princess

Just last weekend, after chasing each other around the yard and playing with bubbles, the  newly 2 year old little birthday girl sat on my lap, placed her hands on the table with fingers spread wide, and looked up at me with big, brown eyes. "Nails?" I asked, "I'll start with your favorite color - purple." She then proceeded to watch in awe and ask for two more rounds of colors.

This is what it's all about

These moments where the child connects with the character make my world melt. I built this company on the mission of connection. After all, it is "Princess & Me Parties" as in the princess and the child.

If you're looking for more magical moments like this, then keep reading. This could be the gig for you.

Meet the Owner

Hi! My name is Ali and I'm the owner of Princess & Me Parties. My princess journey began at Walt Disney World and in Disneyland where I was "friends with Cinderella" for three years, then continued as I performed for several Southern California character companies.  


In 2014 and with many years of "princess-ing" under my hoop skirt, I started my own company. I wanted my company to be different.

  • A company focused on making the birthday child feel special

  • On creating an engaging performance that kept groups entertained

  • And on nurturing & mentoring the performers


This company is filled with radiant performers who love what they do and it shows. They perform with my company for years or until they get swept off to Broadway, national tours, theme park contracts, movies, and tv shows. 


Growing up, I didn't have a mentor who could give me guidance and supportive feedback. But as an adult and business owner, I take on that position with my cast, through continuous opportunities in (paid) skills training.

My hiring and training process is thorough and expectations are high because I believe in you and in what this company can be for families everywhere. The hundreds of five star reviews from clients speak a lot to what we do here, but the gracious words from my performers speak even stronger. What I do here is different. I hope you'll join us on this fairytale journey.
