French Fun
  • Play French music; check online or at your local library for best selections.

  • Pin the names of famous French people on the backs of guests as they arrive; guests have to figure out who they are by asking questions.

  • If your guests are trivia buffs, make your own version of French trivia. Award the winner with a French music CD.

  • Plan an adventure trip to France as a group activity. You can often get a custom tour for a group of 16. Ask guests to bring travel books, brochures and ideas.

French Decorations

  • Fill French metal flower containers with fresh lavender or sunflowers.

  • Place a Monet print on an easel in the party area. Or display travel posters from a travel agency.

  • Place a bag or bottle of herbes de Provence (a mixture of herbs commonly used in French cooking) by each place setting for a take-home treat. Tie cards with guests' names to the herbs if desired.

French Food Presentation

  • Use crisp white serving dishes; borrow from a friend if needed.

  • Serve salad on a large platter instead of on individual plates to make a dramatic presentation. It will also save you time, and guests get to choose their favorite parts.

  • Search on "coffee press" at the Betty Crocker® Store. You'll find plenty to tempt you! It's the trendiest way to brew coffee.

  • France is famous for its pottery, fabrics and Santon figurines depicting Provençal people. Use these treasures to add French flair, color and authenticity to your table.
