On Saturday night, more than 5000 foodies, fashionistas and cultural enthusiasts gathered at Hyde Park for the 7th edition of Le Dîner en Blanc - Sydney.
Once again, this year’s edition gave Sydneysiders a chance to exhibit their fashion sense, showcase their classy taste for design and elegance and share their gastronomic delights. World-renowned for its photogenic moments, Saturday night’s Le Dîner en Blanc was no exception!
Toting elegant picnic baskets filled to the brim with gourmet treats, they set up their tables and chairs and created unique table decor designs, including elegant chandeliers, and lanterns and sparkling lights. As soon as all table settings were perfected, the beginning of dinner was signalled by the traditional waving of white linen serviettes. Draped in white silk, dancer Cassandra Bartho charmed the crowd with an angelic Serpentine dance choreographed by Kate Wormald. Music filled the air throughout dinner, while guests dined and enjoyed the company of friends. After dinner, thousands of glowing sparkers signaled the opening of the dance floor, with an energetic performance by returning DJ Dan Rowntree.
At the signal of the end of the evening, guests packed up their belongings as well as all their rubbish and left the site as if the night as never happened but with a head full of unforgettable moments and new friendships.
