A Perfect Match for any Occasion

Welcome to Necessary Accessory: Event Planning and Party Rentals!
Our focus is to advise, plan, and execute personal and corporate events flawlessly and professionally. The main accessory for any event is a professional and knowledgeable event coordinator who can help keep cost at a minimum, streamline the planning process and leave the client with a positive experience. The attention to intimate details will create a unique and memorable moment for all clients no matter the size or nature of the event.

Having been an event and group housing coordinator for Marriott International in the Washington, D.C. area for 8 years, I have worked with clients from all over the world whom have held meetings and conferences as well as weddings and other social events. I have been responsible for conceptualizing and executing lavish displays, themes, set ups and décor for special events to include grand openings and product launches. I have also had the opportunity to work with venues that have a variety of caterers by offering menu ideas and room style set ups.

I plan to enhance my expertise by attending conferences and trade shows annually so that I am up-to-date on the latest event planning trends. I hold several certifications in the event planning arena from Event Planning Standards to Planning Green Meetings. Currently, I am enrolled in the QC Event and Wedding Planning course and will be internationally certified upon completion.
