The Dinner in White – Le Diner en Blanc Perth

From global phenomenon to highly sought after “secret,” Le Dîner en Blanc took over the vibrant newly opened Elizabeth Quay in Perth for the first time on March 20, 2016. This très chic picnic, imported from Paris, is equal parts mystery tour and glamorous pop-up feast. The secret affair was an unforgettable evening of elegance, beauty and magic.

Over 1600 foodies and cultural enthusiasts dressed in white attended the elegant affair catered exclusively by Ultimo Catering & Events. In essence, Dîner en Blanc promotes friendship, elegance and gallantry. Over the course of the evening, the diners enhance the function of the city’s unique public space by participating in unexpected moments, such as the napkin wave to signify the commencement of dining. As well as the lighting of the sparklers to celebrate the start of the dancing. Beyond the spectacle and refined elegance of the dinner itself, guests are brought together from diverse backgrounds by a love of beauty, good food, wine and impeccable taste.

In 2015, Dîner en Blanc took place in 65 cities around the world. Those interested in joining Dîner en Blanc Perth 2017 should register their interest early! The 2016 event exhausted the 1600 invitation allocations and over 5,000 people registered.
