As we are entering the 4th season of the Dinning outside Pop Up Galas, Diner in White events, Diner en Blanc, et al, I am moved to share some of me previous posts and articles on this topic.
I've written at least 6 posts as well as 2 guest posts/articles for other blogs and online columns. I have attended 3 Diner en Blanc Philadelphia events - about to help with my 4th year for #DEBPHL15, and we will be attending our 3rd annual Collingswood Pop Up Gala in September. I've got this thing down pat!
If you are new to the flash mob-esque scene of the White Dinner Party spectacles, here are some links to read/check out. I have lots of photos, videos, ideas, and insight to what works and why there were years that were better than others: go with the flow, try to meet up with your friends, and remember the mantra, LESS IS MORE!
