OMG ~ OMG ~ OMG, You Guys!
I’m Going…I’M GOING!
Ok, so WHY exactly am I so excited and, perhaps even more importantly, why am I sporting this “all white” outfit?
So maybe a little explanation is in order. You all have heard about the fabulous Dîner en Blanc that originated in Paris back in 1988, right? You know, when a group of friends who hadn’t seen each other in years decided to reconnect with each other and they each brought a friend. Come on…I know you’ve been hearing the buzz about this…
That party was such a blast that they decided to do it every year and continue to bring new guests and friends. They then decided to start holding these “join in the following year” gatherings in some of Paris’s most beautiful locations. You all are with me, right?

Then the concept and party just got BIGGER and BIGGER each year and started branching out to other cities around the world, such as: Barcelona, Copenhagen, Moscow, Cape Town and Tokyo ~ just to name a few. And, THEN, it was brought to the United States to cities like New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Boston. And NOW… wait for it…it’s coming to Albuquerque!
NOW do you understand why I’m so excited??? That’s right ~ Albuquerque is about to have a party like NO OTHER that this city has ever seen. And I’ve got my registration confirmation email. I’m sooo IN!
I got “IN” during Phase 1 of the registration. Phase 2 invitations go out tomorrow ~ September 9! There IS, however, a waiting list ~ but you can get on it by clicking here.
Dîner en Blanc literally means Dinner in White. You, and hundreds (and in some cases, thousands) of your girlfriends…
will dress in head-to-toe white.
And this goes for your man, too. NO exceptions. Accessories must also be white, but metallic accessories are allowed. (If you’re needing some assistance with white clothing and accessories, be sure to contact Runway Apparel…they can help!)
You will conduct yourself with the greatest decorum and will follow proper etiquette.
And creativity is encouraged. Go for a white hat, white mask, white gloves. But don’t forget ~ ELEGANT is the look you are striving for.
The location is top-secret and no one will know where they are going until right before the event begins. Everyone will meet up at designated meeting points thoughout the city and will be taken to the event location via buses. Attendees must bring their own:
Event approved sized table and 2 white chairs ~ along with a tablecloth and napkins (in white cloth, of course), 2 white (non-disposable) plates, 2 sets of cutlery and a complete meal for this “chic picnic” they are about to embark upon.
All the tables are lined up in proper order and you, and ALL your new friends, will wave your white napkins high up in the air and
enjoy the most ELEGANT dinner you’ve ever attended with lots of engaging conversations with your closest friends.
There will be a band, dancing and even SPARKLERS!
This is simply going to be AMAZING! I am so excited to attend this special dinner.
Dîner en Blanc Albuquerque will be Thursday, October 9, 2014. Learn all the details and follow along here.
So tell me…
Will I be seeing YOU there?
