Dîner en Blanc . . . oh how to sum up such a special night in one post? Ever since my interview with Natanya DiBona where I covered everything you need to know about Dîner en Blanc Philadelphia, I have been obsessing over Philly’s second annual all white pop-up dinner picnic. And Thursday night it finally happened. And it was perfect.
My three girlfriends for the evening! Kenya, Kelly & Tara were such fun dates. Check us out in Philly Style Mag!
Always need a solo shot! My dress is by Taylor Dresses (currently on sale!).
We were given wristbands with the #DEBPHL13 hashtag on them. Love this idea!
As our evening was a girls night out, we had to get crafty with our transportation methods. The Magna Cart was perfect for transporting our table, chairs, and of course, baguette 🙂
Before we left, Kat went over some instructions for the evening to our group.
Then we were off! After a quick walk down JFK, we passed some road blockages. But where was there a public space big enough to fit 2,500 people? Oh – no big deal, we were eating ON JFK, right in front of 30th Street Station (omg).
Before DEB, Kory Aversa & Natanya had told me how fun it was to make friends with the people sitting around you. And that we did! A big shout out to our dinner & dancing buddies, Sue & Steve! It was so nice to meet the two of you.
Some of the tablescapes at the event were utterly fantastic. Check out this beaut!
At 9:15 exactly everyone at the event lit sparklers and danced to Coldplay. AKA my dream. After dinner, it was time for some mingling & dancing! I ran into so many fab Philly friends! I loved Jeta (1/3 of Philly blog Global Lipstick)’s look.
There were even ENGAGEMENTS at Dîner en Blanc! Check out these cuties. Congratulations!
With my DEB planning friend Jade of style wallflower.
I love this shot of some of the many tables. Talk about a party 🙂 The event was truly a refreshing and exciting way to spend a night in Philly. All of the prep work gathering supplies was so worth it when you saw all 2,500 other guests putting forth the same amount of effort. I already can’t wait for next year! Dîner en Blanc – you rock.
