What to bring?

What to bring?

Diner en Blanc is a unique pop-up event. Guests bring certain items as a tradition of the Diner en Blanc events, so that the location is kept a secret until the last minute and so it just pops up out of no where and then disappears without a trace. This unique part of the event keeps the ticket price low and affordable.

As a member you are reinvited back to the event next year, and so once you have invested in some items, you can re-use these in the future. It is a truly sustainable event!

Diner en Blanc Members need to bring the following for themselves and their guest:
  1. A square Folding Table between 50-90cm
  2. 2 white folding chairs (can be covered in a white cloth if not white)
  3. A table cloth and white napkins (white napkins are needed for the napkin wave)
  4. 2 plates and 2 sets of cutlery - must not be disposable (even if you purchase the Ultimo Hamper)
  5. 2 plastic glasses (due to Licensing Laws glassware are forbidden)
  6. Print out of their reservation confirmation and ID (to prove their identity and that they are over 18)
  7. A meal (or can pre-purchase one from our online store)
It is optional but recommended to bring: decorations for your table (focus on white), candles LED or other battery powered lighting, water/juice/softdrinks (note no BYO alcohol, and none will be available for purchase on the night - you must buy alcohol in our online store up to one week before the event) 
It is a good idea to carry some of these items in a white basket (or a basket of a neutral colour or an esky wrapped in white material) and use a trolley to transport them (the trolley can be stored under your table and doesn't need to be white).
Guests must also wear white, elegant attire.

To help you find some items you need (at an affordable price), particularly items that are difficult to locate, here are some suggestions of where you can buy items. We are not affiliated with any other these businesses, and you will need to contact them for more information.
