After a 15 year career in banking in New York City and Connecticut, Julie was ready to get back in touch with her creative side and launched My Classic Party in 2013. Since the launch, Julie's work has been featured on several popular party sites including Kara's Party Ideas, One Stylish Party, Spaceships and Laserbeams, Pretty My Party, and Whimsically Detailed.
My Classic Party is located in Rye, New York. Party planning services are available for Westchester, New York and lower Fairfield, Connecticut counties.
From our initial consulting call, we start gathering information to create a personalized event. When you sign your contract, the planning process begins. We then start collecting inspiration to create the design. You will receive a party summary detailing out your event itinerary, food options, and decor inspiration. An onsite visit is next followed by a detailed list with associated costs. Once you approve the costs, we take care of the rest and begin purchasing.
We only accept a limited number of parties each year to ensure each client receives a great experience. Are we a fit? See what some of our past clients had to say:
"Julie, you are an amazing creative genius! We can't think of how Annabelle's party could have looked any better, or gone more smoothly and easily. Thank you for making me look so good - you deserve ALL credit!" - CS, Rye, NY
"Thank you so much for all of your hard work and extraordinary services! Stephen's first birthday would not have been a success without you. Here's to hosting more parties together in the future!" - JA, Harrison, NY
"Thank you for making Athena's party so lovely and special! I can't believe you were able to pull this all together for us in such a short time. We will definitely be using your help for our next family event!" - BD, New Canaan, CT
