Vancouver's seventh annual Dîner en Blanc was the ultimate garden party

For its seventh year in Vancouver, Dîner en Blanc brought 4000 people onto the lush grounds of VanDusen Botanical Garden. Surrounded by greenery, diners showed off their best (white) outfits and were treated to art and music while they ate at one of the best locations to date.

 

Here are a few photos of the magical evening in the gardens...
