On Thursday, April 30, we hosted our first EVENING OF DESIGN benefiting the Animal Advocates of Barnwell. Our sold out audience learned how to create breathtaking table settings and centerpieces to complete their next party. Each guest enjoyed our delicious appetizers as they learned great tips on hosting the perfect party. We are so thankful for such a successful event that raised $600.00 for the Animal Advocates. Guests left our fabulous event with wonderful gifts from Evelyn's and tasty pet treats from the Animal Advocates. We are planning our next Evening of Design event for September. Be sure you are on our e-mail newsletter list to learn about the exact date before anyone else. Limited tickets will be available for our September event "Decorating for the Holidays".

What a wonderful time I had at this event. Although I had already planned a Bridal Tea for the next weekend, I quickly grabbed a few extras to use at my event. They were a hit and I can hardly wait for the next one!
