Hands-down, one of my favorite events of the summer here in the twin cities is called dinner in white. The tradition started in Paris years ago, and it is where hundreds of people get together and set up a fancy picnic in a public space, dress up, and dine into the evening. My friends and I participated a couple of years ago and we are going again in a couple of weeks. We bring in everything including the tables, chairs, food, and decorations. It’s such a magical night!!
In the meantime, we are busy planning the menu, figuring out who is going to bring what, and the most important thing… What we are going to wear!! The rule is we have to wear all white. Last time, I tried to go with a bit of a twenties, Gatsby theme. This year, we are thinking more Gypsy punk circus flavor. I’m still open to suggestions though…
Have you been to, or heard of dinner in white? If so, how did you prepare? Do you have events like this in your city? Or any annual summer traditions?
