Handmade Events hosted its first PopUp Dinner picnic in Brooklyn, turning Prospect Park into a showcase of gourmet food and elegant white ensembles.

On one of the most beautiful nights this summer, Prospect Park was transformed as thousands of guests paraded by the lake to set up their tables at a popup picnic under the stars. The guests at PopUp Dinner Brooklyn ranged from master chefs to intrigued locals, and participants wore their most elegant white attire, decorating their place settings with food, flowers, and inspired decor. Serenaded by live jazz music, the 4,000 diners mingled, danced, and sampled each other’s cuisines. After the sun had set and many bottles of wine and champagne had been consumed, Ben Folds took over the stage and played his biggest hits on Acura’s white baby grand piano.

Ben Folds gave a sweet and nostalgic solo performance as the crowd sang along to his oldest hits. Seeming to adore the event as well, Folds remarked on the beauty of seeing a crowd all dressed in white from his perch in the center of the picnic. The musician was certainly correct about the loveliness of evening, as the sea of stunning white attire flowed and waved around the park beneath the vintage golden lights that hung from surrounding trees.

Having taken place in San Francisco, Chicago, Miami, Charleston, among other U.S cities, Handmade Events had yet to make their debut in New York City. Saturday’s event was a successful continuation of the spontaneous parties. Perhaps the most beautiful thing about PopUp Dinner Brooklyn was the organic way in which the participants created the event through their decorations, food, and fashions. While the Prospect Park Alliance, Acura, and Handmade Events created the space for the event, all those in attendance are to thank for designing an elegant and personalized evening. Check out the amazing styles from the evening below. Be sure to find a PopUp Dinner in your city sometime this summer!
