Paint the town white!
Sydney Social 101 was invited to paint the town white with 3,000 other sydneysiders at a secret pop-up picnic, Dîner en Blanc. The mystery location was revealed as busloads of beautiful people decked out in white from head to toe swarmed Bondi Beach for a spectacular event on the iconic beach.
What began as a “friends and word-of-mouth only” event has grown into an international epicurean phenomenon on five continents and claims the title of the world’s largest secret dinner party. Diners continue to gather at a secret location for the sole purpose of sharing a high-quality meal with good friends in one of the city’s most beautiful locations.
Doubling its numbers from last year’s inaugural Sydney event, the intriguing dinner treated foodies and cultural enthusiasts to an unforgettable evening of elegance, beauty and magic. True to tradition, guests gathered at meeting points all across Sydney to have the secret dinner location revealed to them at the very last moment.
Guests dressed in white from head to toe, supplied their own epicurean feasts, chairs, fine china, silverware and white tablecloths to create the spectacular white scene on Bondi Beach. Over the course of the evening, the chic picnic-goers dined and celebrated amid live music from DJ’s Jimmy 2 Sox, Tim Fuchs and Graz.
Breathtaking moments included the waving of cloth napkins to mark the beginning of the dinner, as well as the lighting of sparklers signaling participants are free to circulate, mingle and dance. When it was time to leave, guests packed up their dinnerware and tables, picked up all their litter and headed into the night, leaving behind no sign of their elegant revelry.
Dîner en Blanc Sydney promises to be even bigger and better in 2014. For more information visit http://sydney.dinerenblanc.info/
