About Me

Michelle Shuey is the Founder of The Effortless Affair. Before starting The Effortless Affair, Michelle worked for 10 years as an Operations Analyst for a hedge fund in New York City. 

Today, Michelle helps busy moms to plan, execute and enjoy their child's party through her party management system. She manages the whole event from invitations to breakdown.

Michelle is on a mission to be the secret weapon busy moms use to throw an incredible, custom party for their child.

When Michelle is not crafting away in her basement, she is playing outside with her family and having impromptu BBQ's  with friends that sometimes last all night.

"The Effortless Affair took my yearly Oktoberfest party and turned it from a backyard BBQ to a party to remember. The process was simple.... Everything they executed turned out beautifully and it was our best Oktoberfest party to date!"
