What better way to bid farewell to this fabulous summer than by throwing your very own pop-up dinner party? Pop-up restaurants have been, well, popping up all over cities like Portland’s Cruz, San Fran’s FoodLab and Brighton in Manhattan, with famous toques temporarily taking over a space for a night here, a week there, to create a spontaneous dinner party their guests will never forget. Take a cue from these pop-up professionals and throw your own seemingly impromptu dinner party to cap off summer right, whether it’s at your favorite park, on the beach or even on the city sidewalk. From guest list to décor to a delicious menu, we’ve got everything you need to plan the perfect pop-up dinner!

Where to Have It
We got our inspiration for a pop-up dinner party from one of our favorite party and lifestyle bloggers, Jordan Ferney of Oh Happy Day, who’s been known to throw fabulous pop-up dinners in settings as diverse as a beach under the Golden Gate Bridge, an alleyway in San Fran’s Chinatown and on the rooftops of apartment buildings. A pop-up dinner can happen anywhere from a park to a seaside dock to a pretty orange grove as pictured—the key is to make sure you pick a public place to host your pop-up party, or else you’ll have some very confused property owners wondering why there’s a fabulous dinner party they weren’t invited to happening on their land!
