Le Diner en Blanc

on April 29?

No Little White Lies

It’s been more than two years — April 17, 2016, to be exact — since Le Diner en Blanc (The Dinner in White) popped up for the first time in Las Vegas at The Park with more than 1,000 people dressed in white dining outdoors with white tablecloths, napkins, dinnerware, centerpieces and chairs just off the Strip.

Le Diner en Blanc, originated in Paris, France, three decades ago to celebrate friendship, elegance and gallantry, returns to a secret location revealed minutes before its start this Sunday, April 29. Here are tips to ensure that the experience, from 6 to 10 p.m., is tres chic:

Dress code: Elegant and white only, and stylish and tasteful originality is encouraged. Ladies: No pops of color. Gold, silver or nude accessories and shoes are fine. Gentlemen: Brown shoes and belts are fine, but no black.

Once confirmed, each guest’s participation is mandatory come rain or shine.

The event can take place anywhere, so be prepared (flats/wedges are recommended).

The event is very structured with key moments throughout, so arrive at the start as not to miss anything.

Table setting: All-white.

To ensure that the location is kept secret until last-minute, guests meet at an assigned departure location and are escorted by a volunteer.

Guests must leave with all their belongings, leftovers and litter.

Guests must bring a table, two white chairs and a white tablecloth.

Guests must bring a picnic basket of food, stemware and white dinnerware. A catered picnic basket option picked up onsite is available online during registration.

Beer and hard liquor are prohibited per Clark County regulations. Guests wishing to enjoy wine and/or champagne must reserve online through Le Diner en Blanc’s e-store. Guests are welcome to bring non-alcoholic beverages.
