For 25 years, although the tradition was born in Paris, cities all over the world host an annual dinner unlike any other. The location is kept a secret, despite hundreds, if not thousands, of invitees preparing themselves for an eloquent and elaborate evening of fine food, champagne and entertainment. Attendees embark on a journey to the top secret location, from all over the given city, and it is only upon arrival that the whereabouts of each Diner en Blanc (DeB) is revealed.
Sound exciting? If you’re like me and enjoy your food and drink as much as your fashion and sharing a special occasion with friends, then the inaugural Diner en Blanc Melbourne is an event not to be missed. I am extremely excited to be getting involved with DeB Melbourne and hope many fellow Melbournian’s will join in this exclusive celebration. As the name suggests, the theme is always white. Both women and men must be dressed in white, appropriately of course and strictly white wine and champagne may be consumed. Invitees may bring with them hampers of food and drink or they can pre-purchase baskets to be collected at the venue.
To pertain to the elusiveness of DeB, you must be invited by someone who has previously attended DeB, however as Melbourne is yet to have hosted its first, be sure to register for this event nice and early. I can’t tell you where it is, but what I can say is that Diner en Blanc Melbourne 2015 will be held on the long weekend in March on Saturday 7th.
