Meet The Owner

Lindsey Mensch

Owner & Lead Planner


Lindsey graduated from the University of Miami with a major in business and a minor in art. She spent the year after college backpacking across Europe before moving back to Chicago. Before starting her business, Lindsey spent 4 years working as a corporate art consultant and 2 years in sales. Lili Marie Parties started as a hobby from helping friends and families plan their children’s parties. It became very clear that there was a big void surrounding children’s parties in the event planning industry. In May of 2014, Lindsey took a leap of faith and quit her corporate sales job and started building Lili Marie Parties full time.

What's with the name "Lili Marie"?

As a kid my sister's and mom called me Lili and my middle name is Marie. What better name for a children's party planning business then your childhood nickname.


Traveling:  The more off the beaten path it is, the more I want to go. India, Cambodia, New Zealand, Thailand, Greece and Spain are just a few of my favorites. Still on my bucket list are Turkey, Argentina and Africa.

​I'm the most happy when I'm outside moving around. Snowboarding, running, yoga, bike riding, hiking and scuba diving are at the top of my list. Don't ask me where my obsession for 4-wheeling came from but the obsession is real!
