Dinner in white also known as Dîner en Blanc is a worldwide event originated in Paris. It is a gathering of white-dressed people in a public space, where they set up a temporary, chic dining area. Would you like to take part in a pop-up outdoor celebration like this? See how you can do your own take.
Your kit for plan A
If you have received an invitation to Dîner en Blanc, first make a list of items to bring along. Start with a lightweight table and white FEJAN chairs folded away in a flash. Then, add a tablecloth, matching tableware, and decorations. A delicate GOTTGÖRA lantern for small and large tealights would be a perfect fit.
Your kit for plan B
If you are planning the dinner in white in your own backyard, there is no need to look for foldable furniture. Try the stackable VÄDDÖ outdoor chairs instead. You can leave them outdoors even after the party, as the plastic is both fade resistant and UV stabilised to prevent cracking and drying out. Add cushions to make the chairs comfier and TERESIA sheer curtains to get more privacy in your open space. Want something even more exciting? Then, ask your guests to wear white LUSTIGT masks.
The details make the feast
The dinner’s guests are always asked to dress up in white. And so is the table. Match its new white tablecloth with pastel flowers, candles and glasses, and add some affordable dinnerware, such as OFTAST, VÄRDERA or OFANTLIGT. These can help you make a luxurious setting without spending too much.
The blazing finale
A traditional Dîner en blanc is usually finished with a joint lighting of sparklers. It marks the end of dinner and is the signal to fold your chairs and head home. Unless you’re home already – then it’s simply a good way to highlight the moment.
