Preparing for Diner en Blanc: Table Essentials!

Now that you've gotten your table and chairs for Le Diner en Blanc, you can concentrate on the fun planning of your elegant table setting!  

You'll need to bring a white table cloth, dinner napkins, non-disposable dishes and cutlery, glassware, table decor, and battery operated candles.

We've done a little research for you with some suggestions on where you can find what you need!

Joanne Fabric or other craft stores are great resoures for table covers and linen napkins.

White dishware is easy to come by, but this set from Target offers a little flair!   

Cutlery is plentiful at Bed Bath and Beyond.

Stemless wine glasses leave room for a more elegant floral arrangment and table decor!

B.Y.O.F. (Bring Your Own Flowers!)  Craft stores like Michael's sell flowers perfect for Le Diner en Blanc and they'll stay good for years to come.  Or you can B.Y.O.F.F. (Bring Your Own Fresh Flowers!) from local shops like Surroundings and Flowers on 14th.  

You'll need something to keep your flowesr in, too.  Ikea has all kinds of glassware and vases.

Don't forget to bring a corkscrew for your pre-ordered wine, trash bags, and water.
