Alethia Jackson is a political aficionada who fused her acumen for political correctness with her passion for being the perfect host. Be Our Guest Event Staffing and Planning is her most treasured creation.
Influenced by the grace of First Ladies, like Michelle Obama, Alethia knows that flawlessly planned events should not just be for state dinners at the White House. Her philosophy is that every client’s event should be executed and styled to perfection based on their vision.
Her love of entertaining and hosting events in her Washington D.C. home was the inspiration for launching Be Our Guest in 2014. She understood that for many, the barrier to curating a great event was not having an extra pair of hands to allow hosts and hostesses to focus on engaging and enjoying their guests – which is the most critical element of entertaining.
For today’s professionals who want to host events but are intimidated by the tasks of developing a theme, décor and menu, Be Our Guest is their solution.
Be Our Guest has staffed some of Washington's hottest gatherings and assisted several corporations and non-profit organizations with high-profile convenings.
As President and Founder of Be Our Guest, Alethia does not allow budget or time constraints to deter her from customizing amazing and stylish events others will envy. She is a native New Yorker who moved to Washington for a career in public policy. She has a successful career in politics and corporate affairs, representing various Fortune 50 companies. Her profession affords her the opportunity to travel extensively and attend some of the most sought-after and exquisite events across the globe – Paris, Milan, Los Angeles, Silicon Valley.
She invites you to be her next guest.
