Susie Nadler did a little interview with me right here about doing parties in public spots. (I just wonder what the rules in Paris are…)

Wow… I've always loved the idea of a "private" party in a public location. I once saw two people picnicking on the median of the highway in a field of flowers! It was beautiful and quite funny!!

you will get the chance to attend the biggest party in a public place i know of: the famous "diner en blanc" in paris. you really have something to look forward too. we did one in berlin this year and it was magic!!!

Oh what a myriad of wonderful locations for parties you will have in Paris. And the added romance of the city!!!

Great insights! I especially love the Chinatown alley idea.
Have you ever had any problems with party crashers? I once attended a wedding in a public square in Portland, and the passers-by added their well-wishes without being obtrusive. It was so sweet!

Those are always the best parties.

I remember seeing set tables right on the banks of the Seine, just by the bridge that crosses on to Ile de la Cité.
So exciting that you're going to Paris, come visit us in London!

I've been meaning to stop by and tell you how much I l-o-v-e-d this. intimate gatherings in big public places are my favorite. they always feel so private even in wide open public spaces.

the Diner Blanc in Paris is by invite only- you have to know someone who can get you an invite and then the location is sent out only an hour before the event. I've been dying to go but haven't quite managed yet Parties in public places are illegal in Paris (the sheer size of Diner Blanc makes it impossible to stop, but the police are EVERYWHERE when they do it). You can't even set up a folding table in the public parks without the park guardians threatening to call the police immediately. The way around this is to hop the fence once the park has been 'closed', but it isn't ideal. The one place that you are allowed to have a picnic/party (but setting up tables and chairs is always going to get attention from the police) is on the quays, especially along Ile St Louis or Ile de la cite.
