That’s right everybody, the elegant, pop-up chic picnic that is Diner en Blanc is coming to London! It’s all happening on Thursday, September 20th!
If you’ve never heard of it before, Diner en Blanc has been running in Paris for over 20 years and annually gathers more than 15,000 people in one of Paris’ most amazing public locations, like Notre Dame, Versailles, the Louvre, Place de la Concorde, Champs-Elysees, Arc d’Triomphe, etc etc. Last year, for the first time, there were several Diner en Blanc’s held in other countries, which were Canada and the United States. In the US, the New York event was a huge success, with 30,000 people signing up on the waiting list for only 1,200 spots.
The best part about this whole thing is that the location of the event until is kept secret until guests literally walk onto the site and are told to start setting up. Everyone brings their own folding table and chairs, white tablecloth and napkins, picnic basket with high-quality menu items, actual cutlery and dishes and glasses (no plastic!), and their own choice of wine or champagne.
