Pop Up Dinner Party En Blanc


"Imagine a night
Where thousands
Come together,
Dressed in white
With food and wine
To decorate tables
And dance
In celebration of
The unusual,
The unexpected,
And the unforgettable."


Have you ever heard of the PopUp Dinner Party? Handmade Events chooses the location, sends out the invitations, and provides the tables and chairs. You wear all white, bring your own food, drink and tablescape.

Like any Society Social, I jumped at this fantastical idea of a flash dinner party and a chance to decorate, of course! The location was disclosed just two hours before the festivities began and once we received our secret email, on to Brooklyn we excitedly set out with a multi-course meal and fine china in tow. No excuses when your company is based on a love of entertaining!

It was a shimmery summer night, the crowd was ethereal buzzing about in white. I chose my float-iest, most gossamer-like dress and wore sparkly flowers in my hair, the same ones I wore on my wedding day.


 Under the stars and the moon we sang, we danced, and we drank rosé {sangria}.

"In hours, the space was empty, with no trace of the magic that had happened."

 My darling friend, Jen and her beau James, were our partners in crime for the evening. They took these beautiful photos and were such good sports when I, in my dinner party high, splashed them with sparkling water at the end of the night ;) Head over to Jen's style blog, Skirt the Rules, for more. 

p.s. The next PopUp Dinner Party is in one of my favorite cities, Charleston. I imagine it will be doubly charming. More here
