Without a doubt Dîner en Blanc will go down as one of my most memorable moments of 2013.
One gorgeous evening, one secret location, 3000 people, all dressed elegantly in white, dining with good food and good wine, celebrating with loved ones.
This is the second year that Dîner en Blanc has come to Australia and this year’s Sydney secret location was Bondi Beach.
The location was only revealed to us only minutes before we arrived to the event. Let me tell you I was over the moon when the coach arrived at Bondi Beach.
I was devastated that I missed out on the first Sydney event held outside the MCA with a gorgeous Sydney Harbour backdrop. But I am so glad that they selected my favourite beach for this year’s event.
Nothing quite compares to having a glass of wine while burying your bare feet into the soft white sands, hearing the waves crashing to the shore and watching the sunset down the horizon.
It was breathtaking.
For a brief moment, all the lined up white tables and chairs did make it seem like we were at a private beach wedding!
All “stressful” preparation leading up to the event as totally worth it. What to eat, What to wear and What to bring.
We all had to bring our own white tables and chairs, food, wine glasses and cutlery. But the adventure of lugging our gear to an unknown destination and seeing everyone do the same was just so spontanous and fun.
At the end of the day it was simply taking time away from our busy city life to dress up and share a splendor meal with our friends and loved ones.
Such a magical experience that I’m never going to forget.
