Preparing for Dîner en Blanc: Let's Start With The Basics!

You've gotten your invitation to Washington, DC's first ever Le Dîner en Blanc.  You've ordered wine and champagne, a gourmet picnic basket.  You're shopping for a fabulous outfit with très chic accessories in which you'll dance the night away.
But don't forget your basics!  When preparing for Diner en Blanc, it’s important to keep practicality in mind while focusing on elegance.  Diner en Blanc – Washington has prepared a list of suggested basic items that can ease your trip to the secret location.  Get creative!  Simple tables and chairs can be painted and dressed with elegant linens.  Roll-up camping tables fit easily into a bag.  A trolley can be packed with rope or bungee cords to free your hands.
You're required to bring a table (between 28" x 28" and 32" x 32") and two white chairs.  Covered in a white tablecloth, this table will be the canvas for your thoughtful, elegant display of food and tabletop decor!

We've done the research for you and here are our top finds:

1. Sierra Trading Post Roll Up Table
2. Square Roll Up Dining Table
3. Roll Up Camping Table
4. Lowes White Folding Chair
5. Folding Carry-All Cart
6. Ikea White Folding Chair
7. Ikea Dark Folding Chair
Logan Hardware also has a special offering for Diner en Blanc guests of a white table and two chairs to be pre-ordered and picked up in store.  Details will be updated here soon and as well as on social media.
