The Dataw Island Visual Arts Club hosted a Diner En Blanc on Sunday, September 14 as part of their 10th anniversary celebration.
How does a flash mob serve dinner? Why, elegantly and dressed all in white, of course. In celebration of the Dataw Island Visual Arts Club’s 10th anniversary, members and guests were treated to a Diner en Blanc in a beautiful natural setting. The location was kept a secret until the day of the event when 120 fashionistas and foodies went into action and converged setting up white table decors, epicurean treats, and surprises for all.
The dinner began at 6 p.m. with corks popping and delicacies from caviar to lobster salad presented to tease the appetite and set the stage for an elegant picnic served on china with crystal glasses and silver candelabra. Each couple or small group planned and executed their dinners with all arriving to create a beautiful world of white linens, candlelight and guests in their finest white apparel. Dinner was served, the sparklers were lit and just as quickly as it all began, everything was whisked away and all that remained was the natural beauty of the island ruins and the cleansing rains of a late summer storm.
