The countdown is officially on for this year’s Diner en Blanc, NYC. If you didn’t know, I’ve been on the waiting list for this iconic pop up dinner for the past 2 years!! Why you ask?
Here’s a little bit about the concept of the event and why it’s a pretty, pretty big deal:
At the last minute, the secret location is revealed to thousands of friends who have all been patiently waiting to learn where “Dîner en Blanc” will take place. Thousands of people, dressed all in white, and conducting themselves with the greatest decorum, elegance, and etiquette, all meet for a mass “chic picnic” in a public space.
Over the course of the evening, guests experience the beauty and value of their city’s public spaces by participating in the unexpected. Beyond the spectacle and elegance of the dinner itself, guests are brought together from diverse backgrounds by good taste and a love of beauty. Le Dîner en Blanc recalls the elegance and glamor of high French society, and guests engage one another, knowing that they are taking part in a truly magical event. There are no disruptions: no car traffic, no pedestrian traffic—only amazed and astonished looks from passersby observing the scene before them. And participants, like spectators, wonder whether it’s all not a dream…
In preparation for this event you need to do A LOT! And when I say A LOT, I seriously mean it. From getting the right attire, the right food and also the correct equipment for the event it can be quite daunting. However, Amazon has been a life saver and I’ve been going to work getting things like a pop up table, chairs, table cloth etc.
Since Thursday is around the corner, I want to share with you a few inspirational bits for this epic event. I absolutely cannot wait!
