Instead of cooking for the blog this weekend, I found myself cooking for PopUp Dinner Brooklyn. An outdoor dinner with musical entertainment by Handmade Events.

They provide the chairs and tables, and the attendees bring everything else. Food, drink, tablecloth and napkins and everything else needed to enjoy a slap up meal with friends.

I attended with Corrine of Absolute Events by Corrine, and Jasmine of Fanci Fantastic. Corrine and Jasmine were the perfect partners for this event. I created a simple menu, Corrine designed the table and Jasmine provided the champagne and dessert.

We had so much fun. This was our first popup dinner, and we didn’t know what to expect, so we went simple, with the plan of attending next year armed with full knowledge of what to expect.

Many regulars went all out, here’s my favorite table designs and accents.



The fashion was inspiring also – click here for a review of Jasmine’s fav looks. Check her out with her new best friend as the sun sets! I think you will agree that they both know how to add the right accents to their outfits.

Set up started at 5pm, dinner at 7pm and the entertainment concluded at 10pm. It was a fabulous event, and I will make sure to have my fingers poised for next year’s PopUp Brooklyn Dinner.

If you can, you should join me too. Sign up for alerts from Handmade Events and expect the option to buy tickets for this June event to appear in your inbox as early as October 2017.

Handmade Events replicate PopUp Dinner Brooklyn in many other cities, in fact there is another in New York at Governors Island in September.  Check out their site and get involved.

I’ll leave you with this – a cute finale from our table neighbors. I’ve got to do this next year!
