Last weekend I went to the most amazing dinner party; a pop-up dinner party! A party where you design your own tables cape, bring your own food and drinks and invite your own friends! What type of party is this you ask?? It's Handmade Events pop-up dinner! Think of it as a fancy top notch reception but in the form of a picnic. They appear in about half a dozen cities across the nation to bring an incredibly magical night! They are just a few rules you'd must adhere to...First, fashion. You must bring your most fabulous All-White outfit! Whether it be a LWD, white denim to linen pants you'll want to dress your best to make a statement upon entry. Second, envision the most attractive table decor and bring it to life on your table. Think full and flourishing flowers, shiny silverware, luminous lighting to match your favorite theme. Lastly, conjure the most delectable dinner menu and bring starter, main and dessert course. Above are my favorite table designs along with my own with the help of great friends!
The secret location isn't announced until the day of the event. All we are provided is the city! It ended up being at Jack London Historic State Park. This was location was perfection. As you walk onto the property you are welcomed by hosted and greeted by the most beautiful stoned ruins. The backdrop are hills and ever-ending rows of vineyards. For a moment I felt like I was stepping in on a Tuscan countryside! There's much chatter and laughter as everyone prepares their tables to their liking. Once tables are set and food laid out, an acoustic guitarist serenades the large group as we wine and dine under the setting sun. It was so fantastic! Once everyones finish then the REAL fun begins...it's time to hit the dance floor! As much as I enjoyed the acoustic sounds I was very ready for the DJ to begin spinning on the turntables. People, music, dancing, lights, and stars. Variables that equate to a delightful evening. I am literally counting down to the Pop-up dinner in San Francisco. Now that I've had dinner in this format, I don't think I'll ever go back to traditional! Thank you Handmade Events! I shall see you again!
Till next time dolls!
