Gotta be honest, I haven’t been a huge fan of Diner en Blanc since I attended it a few years ago at Yards Park. It was just a whole lot of planning and money spent while dealing with the event’s in-built anxiety-inducing moments (over making sure I had the right gear to making sure I got on the final invite list to not knowing where the location was until the day of the event - but hey that’s what I signed up for and to each their own). But when Lauren @laureninouye16
mentioned her idea of doing a Déjeuner en Blanc, a no-frills pared-down version among a small group of friends, at a table by the rose bushes at the @usbotanicgarden
, I embraced the idea with open arms. Most of the items pictured here I obtained in one hour of shopping around in Georgetown - table decor from @tjmaxx
and name cards, vanilla creme cake, I ❤️ DC cookies from @deandeluca
, and peacock feathers from a party favors online shop. Lauren ordered food from @momofukudc.
All in all a smashing success and so much fun! Looking forward to our next Déjeuner en Blanc! #igdc #thatsdarling #darlingweekend #onthetable #diy
