picnic in the park with a side of art; yes please.

Hey curvy curlies, this past Sunday I had one of the most fascinating nights of my life! I picnicked and partied in the park under the stars at the Parisian inspired Diner En Blanc. This white party is a pop up dinner that has been hosted by cities all over the world. Guests must wear all white, pack a picnic basket full of treats (food and decorations) and gather at a secret location - revealed just shortly before dinner time. Get this, I was lucky enough to attend Las Vegas' inaugural Diner En Blanc, just a few feet off the strip! Crazy, right? Who knew this desert city was so chic? Well, believe me, it is! 

Imagine hundreds of people in funky white, elegant white, summer white...you get the picture. A sea of beautiful people wearing all white, with white table decor and performers dressed in white as they entertained us. One word - epic!

The setting for this amazing and visually stunning experience was The Park, Vegas. The Park (a lovely entertainment space and gathering place/date destination) resides between the Monte Carlo and New York, New York hotels. The Park hosts several eateries, a casino, an entertainment arena and the piéce de résistance; Marco Cochrane's Bliss Dance.

Bliss Dance

Bliss Dance is a 40 foot sculpture who embodies the beauty, grace and strength of all women. I adore everything about her. The way she flaunts her curves in complete confidence while balancing her massive frame on one foot, inspires me. She is beauty in motion, and it was my absolute pleasure to commune with her before and after Diner En Blanc. Oh, and she lights up in the evening! The next time you are in Las Vegas, I implore you to visit her at The Park - you will not be disappointed.
