Seri Kertzner and Michelle Cassera Bachman are the party planners behind the site Little Miss Party, a premiere party planning service offering a one-stop shop for all of your entertaining needs. About perfect party planning, they say, "The key to a successful party is a relaxed host. And the secret to being relaxed… is getting yourself organized and ready for your party in advance! Also, keep it simple! Less is more. A few bud vases, candles, bite-size appetizers and a signature drink will make for a laid-back evening where your guests can take it easy and enjoy!"
