Typically held on July 14
th, France’s Bastille Day celebrates the fall of the monarchy and the
beginning of the French Revolution. Though it is France’s Independence
Day, this holiday is celebrated around the world. You will even find many
parties held in your favorite event space in the New York Area.
Decorate in France’s Colors
The colors on France’s flag are blue, white, and red. Similar to
the United States’ colors, but in a different order and for different
meanings. There are several ways you can deck out your event space in
France’s colors to celebrate Bastille Day. Hang the French flag
in place of curtains. Decorate your desserts in blue, white, and red.
You can even get creative with different alcohols to create custom cocktails
in France’s patron colors.
Hire the Right Entertainment
If you are celebrating Bastille Day, it may be safe to say you’ve
heard of the Can-Can. This popular, showgirl-filled dance was made famous
through Paris’ Moulin Rouge. Now, the Can-Can is practiced around
the world, and it can make an appearance at your Bastille Day party. Ask
your party space rental for recommendations for other French-themed entertainment,
such as singers, dancers, and mimes.
Serve Delicious French Food
France is known as one of the world’s greatest creators of delicious
cuisine; you cannot have a Bastille Day party without serving some of
France’s greatest delicacies and dishes. French wine and cheeses
are an absolute must at any French party. You can have a “make your
own crepe” bar set up with fruits, desserts, and savory toppings.
Or you may decide to offer a full five or seven-course meal in true Parisian
style. Be sure to hire a French-trained chef to cook for your party, because
you do not want to misrepresent one of France’s greatest achievements: Cuisine.
