“Best Kept Secret Picnic ” in Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love.
Hey, guys! Alev here, with Private Paparazzi Productions. Are you ready to party? We sure are! It’s time for the worldwide annual extravaganza that is DÎner en Blanc – “Best Kept Secret Picnic ”.It occurs all around the world, at least once a year, in every major city. On Thursday, August 21st over 3,500 people gathered for Diner En Blanc Philadelphia.
We were officially invited to attend this awesome event, and it is unmistakably the epitome of old French elegance with a modern twist of whimsy: All of the guests don their finest white dresses and suits; some wear funky hats that are simultaneously outrageous and sophisticated, and meet at secret location. This year it was spectacular whew of Avenue of The Arts.
Everybody brings his/her own white table and chairs, white tablecloth and place setting.
White wine and champagne flow, as everyone dines, mingles, and greets passing helicopters by waving their silk napkin “flags”.
The band, in the meantime, keeps up the festivity with irresistibly groovy jazz.“Bright, bubbly, and beautiful” aptly fit the description of Dîner en Blanc.A huge THANK YOU to Natanya DiBona and one great team of volunteers, who made this night possible for all of us to enjoy!
Thank you for inviting Private Paparazzi Productions to take part in this magical event. We look forward to many more “Best Kept Secret Picnics ” in Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love.
