WITH THE COMING OF THE NEW YEAR, we’re ready to renew and refresh our blog presence beginning with, well, blogging! Duh! The last few months of 2014 were a blur of parties and events, and sadly, hopping on the blog and sharing the journey wasn’t as often as we like it to be. But we know you understand as we all get a little bogged down from time to time, right?

We ARE grateful to see that after 35 years in the weddings and events business, Evantine is not only still relevant, but THRIVING!

Time sure does ZOOM by when you’re busy planning parties and we’ve had some biggies this year already!  Hard to believe it’s time for Ball on The Square, one of the most prestigious non-profit gala events in Philadelphia. As there is always much to do for this spectacular evening, our design team has already begun the installation of tents, air-conditioning, staging, sound and lighting. But instead of focusing on the long hours and detailed production in progress, let’s take a quick look at last year’s glamorous Ball on The Square for inspiration. {Photos: Marie Labbancz}
