Just a reminder that this event has some rules: you have to wear white and you must bring a table, chairs, and a tablecloth (all white of course) and as always, the location for Dîner en Blanc will be kept a secret until the day of the event, which goes on rain or shine. This year marks the 30th anniversary of Le Dîner en Blanc de Paris, which launched in the city of love in 1988 thanks to François Pasquier and a handful of friends.
