The Secret Location Revealed - Dîner en Blanc Costa Rica 2017 - Our Life in Costa Rica


Upon Arrival
Our secret destination was...

Museo de los Niños - San Jose
 Children's Museum, San Jose Costa Rica
Site of 2017 Dîner en Blanc

and THIS is why I LOVE Costa Rica!!!

Unique Museum

The museum, which is situated on an isolated rise just north of downtown San Jose, is one of the premier examples demonstrating why Costa Rica is so unique compared to other Latin American countries.

Not only was the Children's Museum the first of its kind in Central America, its location in an old military prison was chosen to send a message that the future of the country would not consist of wars and political struggles, but the education and care of its children.

Additionally, by establishing the museum in what was formerly the main military fortress of San Jose, Costa Ricans have chosen to remember the lessons of the past, with such buildings serving as daily reminders of what might have been if the country remained embroiled in civil wars.

Because of its size, the former prison was particularly suited to become the Children's Museum, which boasts more than 32 exhibition rooms and numerous activities and experiences for kids both indoors and outside.


and......

Here is our video highlighting the glamorous and magical 7 hour event condensed into 8 minutes & 40 seconds

Enjoy!

Can't wait till next year!!

If you are in Costa Rica we hope you will join us 
or sign up for an event in a city near you

These are photos of our table in various stages of decorating and throughout the evening
The candles would no stay lit due to the wind (note to self - "next year bring covered candle holders" The lighted balls ended up inside of the lantern to make enough light for the table


Early table prep






Lighted balls now inside the lantern

The table is not complete without the honorary Eiffel Tower
