Last night was pretty magical. I spent the evening dining with almost 2500 people in the middle of Will Rogers State Historic Park. Best described as a “happening”, the event, produced by Handmade Events, is designed to bring together thousands of people for a pop up dinner, al fresco, for an enchanting evening.
Tickets were $30, and tables first come first served. You bring your decorations, your “tablescape”, your food, your beer and wine and dine with your friends (and your 2000 new friends). The invite stated you must be dressed in white and the location was not revealed until 3pm on the day of the event (though you knew it was in the Santa Monica area)
I was invited by the Main and Rose PR girls, who were running press for the event. As such our table was hosted, and we were treated to food and drink and an expertly decorated table. The team went for an old Hollywood/Movie theme to honor Will Rogers.
One of the best parts was wandering around checking out how other guests had decorated their tables, one of our favourites was the Alice and Wonderland themed table (complete with costumed guests) but everyone was in the spirit of the event and everyone made an effort.
It was a really special event (one that Ludacris showed up to, check out my instagram!) and I’m definitely on board for next year, in fact I can’t wait.
