They say one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, so maybe it’s not that hard to believe that the centerpiece of the most elegant party of the year was trash. We’ll get back to that later. First, let's talk about the night to remember.
September 1, More than 2,000 ladies and gents dressed in white, celebrated a special evening on Turtle Bay Resort’s Stables Lawn at the 5th annual Dîner en Blanc in Honolulu.
History of Le Dîner en Blanc
Le Dîner en Blanc tradition has actually been around for 30 years and originated in Paris, France. It started when a group of friends decided to meet in the park for a picnic. They all wore white so it would be easy to find each other. Now three decades later, the tradition lives on in more than 80 cities around the world where people meet up for an elegant picnic in a beautiful location.
