A First Timer’s Guide to CINEMA DE LA MER – The Super Secret White Party

10 Tips for enjoying the alfresco dinner and selection of movies and unique entertainment

Imagine a spectacular scene of hundreds dressed all in white coming together for the ultimate pop up picnic after dark.
The fourth installment of CINEMA DE LA MER, The Secret White Party presented by Vero ENT Associates takes place in Vero Beach on Saturday, November 23, 2019. The hush-hush “banquet en blanc” marks the opening of the Vero Beach Wine + Film Festival’s 5th season. The highly anticipated event raises funds for the nonprofit arts organization’s award-winning June 2020 fest, student film prizes, Director Apprenticeship Program in Toronto, Canada and free community film events in Vero Beach.

It’s a surprisingly delightful night out on the town. Enthusiastic guests arrive carrying décor and dinner to a secret location. They’ll spend the night dining, sipping, laughing, dancing, watching movies, and connecting with new friends. “Embrace the serendipity of the evening and you’ll have more fun than you ever thought possible!” said Jerusha Stewart, Executive Director of Vero Beach Wine + Film Festival, Inc.

Here are few tips to make sure your night is a wondrous wonder in white.
1. Reach out to your friends and see if you can join their table for this magical night of mystery. Or sign up to receive your personal invitation at
2. Once you’ve received your inbox invite, reserve your seats before the reservations close. No tickets are sold at the door.
3. Gather your guests for a memorable dinner party under the stars with live entertainment, short films program and spontaneous performances. It’s as much fun to attend solo. Be prepared to make new friends and join neighborhood networks.
4. Do a quick Google search for “white party dress” or “Dine en Blanc tables” and you’ll find thousands of dress and decorating ideas.
5. Visit your favorite retail haunts for white dinnerware, flatware and cool glassware to create your special tablescape.
6. Serve your favorite comfort foods for the perfect pop up picnic menu en blanc. Flavored popcorn, a selection of white cheeses, chicken salad, macaroni and cheese, deviled eggs, potato salad, Fettucine Alfredo, coconut cupcakes. Skip the red sauces. After all you are wearing all white.
7. Have a designated driver or service chosen before the night begins. It’ll make it much more relaxing as you’re imbibing at the Bubbly Bars.
8. CINEMA DE LA MER is big on social media. Be sure to take lots of selfies, group pictures and document your decorating efforts – there will be plenty of photo opportunities.
9. Please plan on watching the short films before, during and after dinner! Seats will fill up fast in the VIP screening lounge…go there early. . .you don’t want to miss out!
10. Some guests will go all out, but don’t feel pressured to do more than you are comfortable doing. The point of the night is to have FUN supporting a wonderful cause.
