"The Conference Center hired Accent Event & Design for the 2022 holiday season. They provided fantastic décor throughout our building. Cynthia was fantastic to work with and her set up and tear down team were professional and efficient. The comments we received from our patrons were all very positive.  I would highly recommend Accent Event & Design for any of your décor or event needs".

"Cynthia made our Special Day absolutely perfect!  Her creativity, expertise and execution, from start to finish was flawless and created our dream wedding. Our guests stated that it was the best wedding they had ever been too. We are still blown away!  Cynthia was collaborative and partnered with our wedding vendors to ensure everything went perfectly.  Having Cynthia as our wedding planner allowed us to be present and enjoy our day free of stress.  She was a pleasure to work with and made our wedding unforgettable!"

"Cynthia transormed my 1970's house from a drab 25 year rental to a fresh clean home. 
She knows the importance of
detail, precision and dependability.
  I would recommend her
to my best friend!"
