In case you haven’t noticed, we are very fond of our French heritage here at Soirée – from our name to my last name (Guérard), and even to the name of our blog! So of course we couldn’t let the biggest fête in France pass us by without sharing our favorite ways to celebrate. Our team has gathered all you need to wear, serve, play, and admire for Bastille Day on Monday, but we might go ahead and start partying this weekend. It’s the French way of course!
