Dîner en Blanc

I was reading the Toronto Star this morning after retrieving it from my mailbox and was so intrigued about this first ever flash mob (invite-only) picnic that took place on Tuesday in the city's Distillery District. Apparently, it started in 1988 in Paris, which is pretty darn cool and it's been surprising the tradition has been trending for such a long time.  
Dîner en Blanc literally translates into "Dinner in White" (Thank you 9 years of learning French!) and it reminded me of those summer "white parties" which have similar concepts. I thought these pictures and the cobblestone scenery were absolutely stunning as I'm a city girl at heart, though I live in the suburbs at the moment. You can click the links provided for additional reading.

This is all so pretty. I'd be the girl to get a food stain on my white dress though haha.

I love these pictures! I've been to a "white dress" party once before. It was some sort of fundraiser and I got an orange stain on my skirt while eating! (:
