Diner en Blanc Sydney 2013 – even the Australian Government couldn’t crack the white code
What’s white, holds 3000 people, in Sydney and no-one knows where it is until the very last minute? Organisers and sponsors of Le Diner en Blanc achieved something even the Australian Government was unable to do, like keep a secret – secret.
Diner en Blanc’s eventual 2013 picnic spot was revealed as we wove our way in our ‘white’ bus along the Esplanade to alight on the pristine sands of Bondi Beach.
What a truly amazing sight! 3000 chic, white bedecked picnic-goers ferrying tables, chairs, white table linen, fine china, silverware, candelabras and all things one needs for a stylish dinner party, out onto Australia’s most iconic beach.
Diner en Blanc originated in Paris 25 years ago with the basic premise of sharing a high-quality meal with good friends in one of the city’s most beautiful locations. MiSociety would challenge anywhere in the world to outdo the vista that prevailed on Bondi Beach this night as the waving of the white serviettes signaled the start of the ‘elegant’ devouring of either purchased or home made dinner hampers. Guests on the VIP and Media tables were treated to French delicacies from the Kitchen Food Company married with the incomparable Piper Heidsieck Australia Champagne and the Treasury Wine Estates fine wines – yum.
Bondi Beach was dressed in her superb best as the setting sun channeled hues across the sands bathing all things white in a golden glow before slipping slowly and seemingly unwillingly, behind the headland.
Le Diner en Blanc runs to a strict schedule with the lighting of the sparklers next on the agenda to herald a mix, mingle and boogie segment geed along by DJ’s Jimmy 2 Sox, Tim Fuchs and Graz playing French inspired classics.
MiSociety attends many, many wonderful events each year. As guests of this extravaganza we, along with every Diner en Blancer we partied with, were truly impressed by the massive organisation and logistics behind the execution of an event of this magnitude that delivered a super good feel atmosphere and a huge fun time. Bravo!
Le Diner en Blanc 2014 will need to be a real doozie to outdo 2013 (and the word is – it will be). Le Diner en Blanc website
