A highlight of any kid’s childhood is the amazing birthday parties they have. A great birthday party needs several things to be memorable: a great cake, games, friends, and music are a few must-haves that will make the day memorable.

But a princess making an appearance at your kid’s birthday? They’ll be talking about that for years.

Shawn DeSantis of Skippack, Pennsylvania is offering the magic of a princess appearance at your child’s next birthday with Your Part-Time Princess, a party service that brings the guest of honor of your choice to life.

DeSantis, a Gwynedd Mercy student in her senior year, started Your Part-Time Princess about two years ago. A long-time fan of performing arts and musical theatre, DeSantis knew she wanted to work in the arts and entertainment fields. “I knew I wanted to incorporate musical theatre into my career,” she said. 

Your Part-Time Princess is a unique business in that it is a one-person show. DeSantis dresses as one of several princess characters that her party wants to meet. 

While there are many other related companies in the Mongomery County area, DeSantis prides herself on being completely independent and self-sufficient. 

“I do this all on my own and that’s what I wanted this company to be,” she said. “I wanted it to be me running social media, me running websites, being the princess, everything behind the scenes.”

She has appeared as one of several princesses on multiple occasions and she always brings the characters to life at her parties. “Each child connects differently with each character,” she said.

DeSantis, like so many other businesses during this time, has been adapting to her new circumstances with how her business can operate.

Your Part-Time Princess offers a few different types of packages, including a half-hour to one hour package, which offers face painting, picture taking, dancing, storytime, and the occasional singing around a birthday cake. 

While she can not attend birthday parties and gatherings in person as she has been, DeSantis is now offering her characters to appear virtually for the events she comes to. She is also offering to do drive-by appearances for at-home parties.

You can contact Shawn through her website or through her social media page.
