Some of you have may already heard of an event called ‘Diner en blanc’ which originated 25 years ago in Paris. It is where people gather all dressed in white for a giant “chic picnic” where only the day before they have been advised of the secret location. Hundreds of people are invited and are expected to conduct themselves with the greatest decorum, elegance, and etiquette to enjoy this unique evening.
This event is held all over the world at different times and if you have a chance to attend, I would not turn it down! This all made me think of how fun it would be to hold your own “dinner en blanc” event or party (obviously not at that large scale). If you are wanting to throw a final summer party before August slips away, perhaps consider having an all white theme. Here are some more picture inspirations I found if this catches your eye. xx Glamour Planner
If you have a staircase like this or even a large lobby, tying balloons together into a tall tower gives a dramatic effect. Simple flowers or leaves that have been sprayed can be used for centrepieces at low cost.
Can’t forget about the heels! These would be ideal for an en blanc evening.
For a larger centrepiece you can use tall vases and flowers such as roses and individual flowers at place settings. Chair covers make a world of difference to your atmosphere and aren’t overly expensive to rent.
You may think it’s hard to keep your theme going through the food but there’s more than you think…meringues, coconut and white chocolate are just a few of many!
