The French have all the enviable touches when it comes to entertaining and food. Their sophistication and nonchalance at the same time make the perfect recipe for a pleasant evening. What better way than to combine the best of French entertaining with their quality of food for a French-inspired dinner party? Colorado Party Rentals tells you how!
French Table Styling
When it comes to setting a table that looks both effortless and chic, take a few cues from the French. Forgo full matching sets of china. The table should reflect what you have, but no need to make it matchy-matchy. The china can be a jumbled assortment of flea market finds and mismatched dishes (remember the nonchalance we mentioned?). Your glasses don’t have to all match, either. Just be sure they are all clear and should all have stems.
Unless you have a particularly beautiful table with old, weathered wood or a classic farmhouse table, you should probably use linens. Old linen sheets make perfect tablecloths. For the napkins, monogrammed white napkins are always classy and go with any style. No need to fold into fancy origami, simply place alongside the plate.
On every table should be an open bottle of wine and a carafe of water. Be sure there is plenty of wine! Food display is paramount when it comes to dining French style. If you don’t have a salt shaker, put salt in small finger dishes on either side of the table. Long loaves of crusty French bread on either end also add the finishing touches to the meal.
For foodies, French food is the epitome of gourmet. Choose a genuine recipe, Julia Child’s French cooking, or another solid French recipe and make it ahead of time! Have several sorts of cheese, including blue cheese, and crackers with grapes as your appetizers and have a good time, enjoy your food, be merry, and above all, spoil your guests!
