This has got to be one of the coolest things in my book! I feel so cool for stumbling upon this so-called "Diner en Blanc" Le dîner en blanc.
It originated in Paris in 1988 as a reunion of friends (everyone wore white in order to recognize one another), that has since grown to 10,000. This "pop-up" party happens every year (each year in new location) and the attendees dressed entirely in white comes together at an undiclosed location through a word-of-mouth campaign. Organizers pick the perfect secret location and guests arrange their tables, plate their own salads, turn on their LED votives, arrange charcuterie boards and bring their own bottle(s) of bubbly and there's jazz music playing over the background.
Sounds amazing right? But ofcourse, the French are civilized and sophisticated like that.
