DINER EN BLANC
a few months back we were lucky enough to be invited to diner en blanc in seattle by a friend. i had never heard of the diner but quickly looked it up after she extended the invite. i thought it sounded really fun and said yes right away. diner en blanc is an invite only pop up dinner. you wear all white and bring everything you would need for a dinner, from a white table and white chairs to drinks and food. we were all given a portion of the meal to prepare. we were in charge of the dessert, my favorite to eat and prepare! we made creme brûlée, i made julia child’s recipe and let me tell you it was the best! easier than i thought too. we brought a torch with us and let everyone torch their own, that was a fun addition to the night! between each course you wave your napkin in the air and everyone shouts out. the whole thing is pretty great!
all the people dressed in white, eating fantastic food with great friends. oh and the best part is you don’t find out your location until last minute, like 20 minutes before. each year they switch up where it will be hosted. this year it ended up being at volunteer park. we drove in and followed the sea of white, carrying our chairs and dessert. this was one of our first outings in seattle and felt like a great way to experience the city. the night was topped off with sparklers. thanks steph for a great night! so glad we were part of it and got to meet some of what are now our dearest friends in seattle. i really do love this city!
