With a table adorned with a candelabra Amanda Stonehouse attended her first Dîner en Blanc with the master of the dinner lay out, Kathleen Kivilahit, adorning the silver spectacle with crystals and flowers.

“We brought everything, three piece settings, trays to put all the food on, lobster, prawns. We want to have fun, and we are doing it right,” Kivilahit said.

Allons-y!

One of the sponsors, Chantal Diaz has attended the past three events and brought her daughter, Nicole for her first event now that she is 19.

“I am really excited I could finally come to the event, I will definitely be having a drink tonight,” Nicole said.

“Look at this sea of white, it’s perfect. It’s a very well attended event, everyone comes dressed up and has fun, what more could you ask for? Chantal said. “Over the course of the last three years, I have tried to collect anything that is white and sparkly.”

Due to the fire ban the fête could not end with the traditional sparklers, so guests waved light sticks in the air instead to signal the end of the evening.
