Happy Mitzvah Monday! The weekend is behind us and we are happy to proclaim that we managed to survive another absolutely AH-mazing mitzvah party! When you produce the detailed, labor-intensive events that we do, day in and day out, it can get a little stressful. But all that passion for producing the impossible in a matter of hours is what we live for! Cory’s Modern Mitzvah this past Saturday at Meadowlands Country Club was another example of that passion. We designed and produced an experience that not only WOWED Cory’s guests from the moment they arrived, but kept them engaged and energized right up until the last sweet second. Always wonderful to get a note like this from your client:

Thank you Brian and Evantine Design for creating such an amazing night. The room was spectacular. You are a pleasure to work with and your vision and creativity is like no other. Thank you for making everything work and creating a beautiful room. There was no detail left out. Thank you for not only doing your part but also reaching out to all my other vendors and making sure everyone was on the same page!!! You are awesome!!!!

I thank my entire, talented design and production team for their dedication and creativity. Team Evantine, we did it again! We worked together to manufacture some unique custom touches throughout the event that made CLUB CORY truly special!  Love, Brian Kappra, Creative Director & Chief Crazy Read the rest of this entry »

REAL STORIES: A True Blue B’Nai Mitzvah with a Modern Chic Vibe

One of our favorite party formats is to transform a traditional sit-down family celebration into a modern cocktail setting. While some entertaining purists find this a little unorthodox in formality, we know that for the right client, a casual chic party lounge environment works beautifully! Luckily for us, for this hip B’Nai Mitzvah we had the ideal family who not only asked us for something nontraditional, but whom also embraced our efforts from location selection to event design and party management. Armed with their trust in our planning and design skills, we orchestrated a cool, modern Bohemian-style lounge that everyone enjoyed. Take a look…

This weekend we’ll be installing another glamorous bat mitzvah celebration at the Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia. As the second mitzvah we have designed for this particular client, a stylish family who enjoys entertaining with modern, sophisticated parties, we’re as excited as they are to see the event come to life!  While we can’t yet divulge the event design or party details for this weekend’s event, we can share the spectacular soccer-themed bar mitzvah we created for the family two years ago.  {Photo: Susan Beard Design} Read the rest of this entry »

We went completely MOD for Arden Rose’s Bat Mitzvah!  As a HUGE fan of the Beatles, Arden Rose knew she wanted a 60’s-themed design for the celebration.  For the adults and combined areas we went MOD using one distinctively graphic Pucci fabric of avocado green, chocolate brown, orange and turquoise, as the dominant element in the event design.  For the kid areas we brought in tye-dyed and flower-power elements for a Hippy Chic feel.  It was Shagg-a-delic but in a knee-high white boot kinda-way.
