WE’RE CELEBRATING 20 YEARS AT THE RITTENHOUSE!

Unbelievably, this week marks the 20th anniversary of the opening of our Evantine Boutique at The Rittenhouse!!!!!

Although we were creating some of Philadelphia’s chicest parties for years (and years, and years…) before we moved into this prestigious hotel, it seems like just yesterday we signed the lease for the lobby retail space. From designing stylish parties and lavish weddings in their elegant ballroom, to wrapping up fresh floral bouquets daily for dedicated clients, landscaping the garden with seasonal blooms, and decorating the lobby for the holidays, over the past 20 years we have gotten to know the hotel inside and out as our second home! Truly, it has been an inspiring 20 year partnership!

Over the years we have had the pleasure to work with many talented members of The Rittenhouse staff. Most particularly, Lori Maslowski in the catering department. Right up to last night when we were back in the ballroom with a cool Mad Men-themed party! As usual, Lori and her talented food and beverage team made sure each and every detail was taken care of beautifully and efficiently.

Thank you Team Rittenhouse for all that you have done and continue to do! Everyone at Team Evantine looks forward to another 20 years!

Love, Brian Kappra, Creative Director of Evantine Design

ABOUT US: Behind the Scenes of a BUSY Weekend of Party Installation at Evantine Design

June 13, 2012

It definitely takes a village {and a really big warehouse of inventory} to pull off multiple large events in one weekend! We’re grateful to have both to play with on a regular basis… color us GRATEFUL.

All will be back in order in the warehouse by end of the day Tuesday…  truly is an amazing process that takes months, sometimes years, to master. That process is event production and we’re happy to be a part of the process every single day.


ART & FUNCTION: A Warehouse filled with Party Props, Event Decor and Wedding Inspiration

May 21, 2011

We pride ourselves on serving as a creative melting pot that blends art and function into engaging experiences.  But, what’s in the secret sauce? An amazing idea for an event can come from anywhere, take any shape or form – but making that brilliant idea come to life in an inspired, efficient and organized fashion is a whole other thing.  Frankly, it’s that complete package that makes Evantine different.  But we’ve created something truly special – our homebase and #1 party design resource – the Warehouse.  Take a peek inside to see how we use it, share it and work it.  Everything we need to produce parties is right here.
