The sophisticated all white formal event is back in Philadelphia. Dîner en Blanc is set to return on August 18, 2016. The event location will not be released until the day of the event, but hosts Kayli Moran and Natanya DiBona threw a preview party at Reading Terminal Market to give people a little taste of of whats to come, literally.

Chef, Luke Palladino of Luke Palladino Catering created a beautiful Farro Panzanella sample dish for the event, along with food samples and desserts from 33rd Street Hospitality Catering and many other caterers.

But, food was not the only big thing of the night. The table decoration contest caught the eyes of judges as well as preview party guests. Here are some of tables from the talented designers.

At the end of the day, there can only be one winner. This table (below) rose above the rest to the eyes of the judges. This table was created by Chef Jacqueline Peccina Kelly and Laura Eaton which was inspired by Titian R. Peale Butterfly and Moth Collection housed at the Academy of Natural Sciences.

The food was delicious, the designs were beautiful, but there was one last important concept that is vital to Diner En Blanc: Outfits and jewelry! The dress code is all white, but guests got to see how they could spice up their outfits with accessories from Touché.
