From those precious first steps to the memorable walk down the aisle and everywhere in between, Dads have been there to celebrate all of the special moments. Whether giving advice, cracking jokes, or being a shoulder to lean on, our Dads hold a special place in our heart. We want to take a minute to say thank you and Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads who have helped make all of our events so special!

Imagine… everyone dressed to the nines, casino gaming and fabulous entertainment provided by NYX Live. This years University of Maryland Smith School of Business Monte Carlo night was unforgettable.  EVOKE and the creative vendor team: SYZYGY and John Farr Lighting, created an environment where guests felt regal and sophisticated. The event was designed with a European state of mind, making the guests feel as if they were walking into a real Monte Carlo Casino. Along with dancing to the beats of Leko and crew and gaming the night away, guests enjoyed a fabulous menu created by Occasions Caterers. Lets just say… there was an endless meatball station!

“Spontaneous Happiness”

June 11, 2013

Vacations, among many other things, have an interesting way of inspiring us. While I (Kaitlyn) was visiting my hometown last week, I stopped by True Food and Kitchen in Newport Beach for dinner.  While reading over the menu, my eye was immediately drawn towards the specialty drinks and cocktails, specifically one named “Spontaneous Happiness.” I was quickly reminded of how much fun you can have not only with creating a specialty drink or cocktail, but also by personalizing the name.

Whether it is a specialty drink only offered to those who know the secret code, or your favorite drink labeled with a fun name that describes you most, specialty drinks and cocktails are a fun way to show your personality at any event!
