We Can’t Keep it to Ourselves, Our Flower Boutique is Moving!

March 30, 2016

Evantine Design Floral Shop and Gift Boutique is Moving to Washington Square Philadelphia

NOW YOU KNOW OUR EXCITING NEWS! Seems almost like a birth announcement, and frankly, it feels kinda like that!

AFTER TWENTY YEARS at The Rittenhouse Hotel, EVANTINE, our floral boutique and fine gift store, is moving across town to a BIGGER and BETTER location! Of course, we are grateful beyond words for the patronage and support of the residents of The Rittenhouse Hotel and Condominiums, as well as the Rittenhouse Square community. But it’s time to move on to something new on another square…

OUR NEW STORE will be located at 715 Walnut Street in the Washington Square neighborhood near trendy restaurants, swanky apartment buildings, historic townhouses, and other chic boutiques. Our new cool digs will offer more of what you love about EVANTINE, custom fresh florals and beautiful plants, as well as stylish novelty items and wonderful fine gifts for the home.

BUT WE’RE NOT OPEN JUST YET! Someday soon, VERY SOON! We promise. We’re still working hard, getting our amazing inventory on the shelves and our luscious flowers flown in from around the world. We’ll let you know when you can stop by for a visit. And, right about that same time we’ll be re-launching our EVANTINE DESIGN website! Everything at once! of course. Is there any other way?

Until then, watch for our updates on social media via hashtag #shopEvantine.

With much love and gratitude,

Brian Kappra, Creative Director


SHOP: Patrick Michael Fabric Clutches for the Savvy Styliste

May 29, 2015

Patrick Michael Fabric Clutches Evantine Design Store at The Rittenhouse 2

PATRICK MICHAEL FABRIC CLUTCHES are made with discontinued fabrics sourced from textile mills around the world, making each bag totally one-of-a-kind, eco-friendly and fabulously stylish for Summer. Or Fall, or Winter, or whichever season you need them for and feel inspired by!

Perhaps a brilliant wedding party gift? Our brides tell us all the time how almost impossible it is to figure out the perfect gift for their bridal attendants. Cashmere wraps? Necklaces? Earrings? Sure, all sweet ideas sure to please AND serve a purpose. But, we love the idea of these pretty evening bags from Patrick Michael serving as delicate, fashion-forward gifts for your gaggle of bridesmaids! All the same gift, but each getting their own unique variation! A gift to cherish for years to come and one not to scream BRIDESMAID when seen on the street. A win-win in our book.

Just a few photos of the lovely clutches now available in our retail store at 715 Walnut Street, Philadelphia.

SHOP: Spring is Blooming in Our Store with Faux Flowers

March 20, 2015

spring into the evantine design store

Okay, calm down, you saw the word “faux” and thought… what? A floral designer and Best of Philly florist selling fake flowers? YEP! Yes, we are. Proudly, we might add. And, yes, we know exactly what you’re thinking. Fake flowers are nothing but waxy plastic leaves, fraying petals, fading ombré coloring, and, the pièce de résistance, a liberal coating of dust you can proudly display ever-more on your hall table. Does that about sum it all up? Well, think again! Those days are GONE!

The {faux} flowers currently blooming in our Rittenhouse shop are nothing like the scary fakes of old. Not only do these elegant silk petals, flowering branches and edible fruits look the part, they’re perhaps the laziest finishing touch we’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. No watering, no wilting, no rotting stems festering at the bottom of your favorite vase or vessel – what’s not to like? Sometimes you just need EASY for dramatic impact on an everyday level.

When we opened these boxes we couldn’t believe they were fake flowers either. But hey, don’t take our word for it. You’ll have to come in to view these babies yourself. Seeing might well be believing on this one. There’s even a whole gaggle of silk herbs and ivy topiaries in every shape, size and container you can imagine. Hey, if your favorite celebrities love them, perhaps you can too!

So, next time you find yourself on an A-list yacht or high in the penthouse suite, peer a little closer at those pretty pink peonies. Better yet, put your nose in them and see if those beauties are really REAL. You’be be surprised how many of these babies we sell. {we’ll have your bunch wrapped up and ready as soon as you call…}

P.S. And YESSSSSS, we still do, and always will, have luscious real and infinitely fragrant flowers here in the Evantine Boutique as well. Duh.

SHOP: The Subtle, Simple Jewelry from Jane Hollinger is Perfect for Valentine’s Day

February 3, 2012

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...

We’re happy to announce that Evantine at The Rittenhouse is now carrying Jane Hollinger Jewelry! Believe it or not, this young jewelry designer has been working with metals for over 20 years. She received a B.F.A. in sculpture and went on to create several businesses in the early 1990’s, which included custom metal pieces for interior designers with a small side jewelry business. When people on the streets started stopping to ask Jane where she got her jewelry, Jane Hollinger Jewelry was founded! That was in 1998 and Jane’s intent, then and now, focuses on making high quality, modern pieces that are not only extremely personal but classic in nature.

“I’m interested in the essence of an idea: of distilling an impression down to its simplest form. I view all things I see and hear as a possible resource for my jewelry ideas. A textile pattern, a piece of music or shadows and light are all things that have inspired my work. I love the idea that the jewelry holds special meaning to the wearer, and that many of our customers tell us they never take the pieces off.”  Jane Hollinger

As seen in Lucky, Martha Stewart Living, Dwell, Design Sponge and People Magazine, Jane’s elegantly feminine pieces are popular pieces to be enjoyed every day or for special occasions. Each piece is handmade, made-to-order by her in-house team using domestically sourced materials and metals that are carefully recycled. Jane uses Sterling Silver, 10k Gold, 14k Gold, Brass, semiprecious and precious stones, and to a lesser degree 14k gold-fill and vermeil. Although she’s known for her sweet hearts, flowers and starbursts, there is a wide range of designs to choose from.  So there’s a look for everyone!
