Tabletop Style At Diner En Blanc Philly 2018

Diner En Blanc, which originated out of Europe is an all white picnic party that pops up in various cities for one night only. The location is kept a secret until the very last minute, guests wear elegant white clothes and bring their own tables, decoration and food (although you can order from an onsite caterer beforehand as well as obtain flowers). I’m always amazing that they cart the tables, and it’s impressive when they bring elaborate table settings as well. Especially when Diner en Blanc Philly is always held the 3rd Thursday in August when it’s so HOT! But people do it, they love it and every year the party grows.

Philadelphia’s 7th annual Diner en Blanc is less than a month away and the event’s two passionate organizers — Natanya DiBona and Kayli Moran

How amazing is this wood carving centerpiece including the Philly skyline

Just beautiful
These folks created an epic table

Inspired by Black Panther they created Wakanda

Launched with just a handful of friends by François Pasquier nearly 30 years ago, Le Dîner en Blanc® de Paris now assembles over 10,000 guest every year, with a record 15,000 people attending the 25th anniversary in 2013.

Anyone may participate, however everyone must remain simple and leave their social status at home. During the Dîner, we are all equal and no one enjoys preferential treatment – François Pasquier

The simplest things in life, like friendship, are universal. Any event that promotes sharing and discussions over a meal can happen in any country in the world: you just have to give it a name, and the name today is Le Dîner en Blanc.  – François Pasquier

Wow, did they carry the water too that was used in the floating candle display?
Aisha Harris-Leone and her amazing table. You can’t tell from this photo, but her dress is lit up as well.

This young lady’s table included a tree which featured photos from the previous year she and her friends attended
It’s just amazing people will not only attend the event, but bring such elaborate table decor.
