We were also fortunate to be in Sainte Mere Eglise and Pointe du Hoc for D-Day June 6th.
While on the same trip to France in June, we were invited to attend the 30th anniversary of Diner en Blanc. The event theme is Everything is White. Your clothes and all accessories. You bring your own standard sized table, the tablecloth, the napkins – all white. You bring your own food - appetizers, main course, dessert, wine – no hard liquor. The couple next to us had all white food – they were committed to the concept. You are assigned to the group with leaders that escort you to the secret location and when you arrive, help your group line up the tables and get settled. I was a little nervous about attending what is basically a pop-up party for 14,000 people. I get antsy when I’m around more than 6 people. I was fascinated by how calm and orderly everyone was. The clothes were elegant and creative. The roving orchestras were fun and talented. An excellent evening to do one time only.
