Happy Spring….Fashion!

March 21, 2013

We all know that fashion determines trends, colors, and textures. It also tends to inspire us to not only dress a certain way, but to think about our events in a new light as well. Feeling edgy? Feeling bold? Now that Spring has come, we can finally prepare ourselves for a colorful season ahead.

What to look out for?

Oysters XO Tasting

March 19, 2013

OystersXO describe themselves as an “innovative culinary experience” – we’d have to agree, as long as you also add the word delicious. After we heard about OystersXO and their “Oyster Girls”, who walk around events hand shucking oysters, we couldn’t wait to see – and taste – the action! Our chance finally arrived last week at the  Mandarin Oriental, and believe us,  it was worth the wait. The charming girls, outfitted with oyster-carrying belts, were total pros at shucking the oysters!

A big thanks from the EVOKE team to the Mandarin Oriental, Washington D.C and the Oyster Girls for a delectable evening!

Bachelor Party: Bourbon & Bowties

March 12, 2013

One of the wonderful things about weddings is that the celebration lasts more than just one day. From the engagement party to the honeymoon, there is seemingly endless opportunity for fun… and when the groom thinks fun, he probably thinks Bachelor Party!

Why not ditch the cliched, R-rated, bachelor party for a Bourbon & Bowties bash? Gather the groomsmen for a swanky bourbon tasting and bring in a pro to give a lesson in the art of tying bowties. No matter where you’re from, you’ll be as dapper as true Southern gentlemen in no time.
