Wonder. Wow. Whimsy. All three words are used to describe last week’s Le Diner en Blanc Birmingham. This was the inaugural year for the event to be hosted in Birmingham, Alabama.
The Magic City (another name for Birmingham) has emerged from its traditional roots and becoming an innovative, sophisticated mecca.
Therefore, it’s only fitting that such an event had its turn with tastemakers and professionals residing in the Birmingham area.
Hosts for the exclusive all-white picnic were Jasmine and Lynda Allen, owners of Destination Birmingham which is a local event management firm.
