This Is The Inside Look You Need To See Of The Most Coveted Dinner Party In NYC


On Tuesday, August 22nd in New York City – crowds of people dressed in all white from head to toe met at the fountain in front of Lincoln Center for a lavish dinner celebration called Dîner en Blanc. Passersby pulled out their phones to capture this fabulous moment while the setting resembled something out of a Gossip Girl episode. The wait list to attend this extravagant party is over 33,000 people, but this year we were lucky enough to join in on the festivities! Each guest brings everything they can carry (including tables, chairs and decor) to the location and sets up their own unique take on the night! Our founder, Colin Cowie designed the most elegant tablescape inspired by an enchanted white garden. The invitations were crafted beautifully by the talented designers at Engaging Invites. Colin arrived dressed in a bespoke all-white seersucker tuxedo made by New York-based designers Musika Frere, whose clientele includes everyone from Kevin Hart to A-Rod and Steph Curry. After enjoying a meal of (all-white, of course) cuisine, we danced the night away at the NYC event of the year! Here’s a sneak peak at all of the magical details that took place:
