Bastille Day Party Ideas


Besides Serving up some fine french cheese like Brie, Goat cheese, Camembert, or Roquefort, there are plenty of ways to add French Flair to your party. As long as the cheese is good and plentiful, all else can be arranged!

  • For edible decoration guests will feel guilty for enjoying, may we suggest trying this oh-so-simple Eiffel Tower Cookie Sundae recipe from¬†What’s Cooking?: A Cookbook for Kids (Ratatouille) with an introduction and recipe by famous restauranteur,¬†Thomas Keller. In it, you will find the most ingeniously simple idea of an Eiffel Tower made of wafer cookies! The blog Books Alive shows the final product of this edible iconic symbol of France! The image below is the finished product from the Books Alive blog.

  • Don’t put away all those 4th of July decorations yet! You can still re-use Red, White and Blue decor from your last fete. Just try to coordinate the blue on the left, white in the middle and red on the right, and steer away from stars and stripes. Alternatively, grab some on sale while they’re still available and just stick with basic solid red, white and blue. Food can also double as decor (as long as they last on the table!) So you can display those blueberries and strawberries next to your Brie for a blue, white and red theme and voila!

  • Set the party mood with a Bastille Day playlist! Browse on youtube, Spotify, or Pandora to find a French playlist. Songs with accordions could be a fun way to take you back in time to a bistro far, far away…
