Inside Our Bastille Day Backyard Bash

July 6th, 2018

You may have heard it referred to as “the French 4th of July”, but this patriotic holiday is — like all things French — unassailably cooler than the rest. It’s the anniversary of the day Parisians stormed the Bastille on July 14th, 1789, releasing political prisoners and marking a turning point in the French Revolution. Now Bastille Day is a national holiday with the largest and oldest military parade in the world, and a time for people of all nationalities to celebrate French culture. This year we decided to get in on the fun by hosting our own Bastille Day celebration, complete with all the French cheese, butter, and champagne we could find. This is exactly the kind of thing the whole CS team will always say YES to.  Scroll down to see our Bastille Day bash in action, and start making your own plans for July 14th.

    Francois Hardy, Serge Gainsbourg, I am dating myself, but they bring so many wonderful memories, add the cheeses and wines, and I am back into my youth.

  2. What a fabulous idea! French Baroque and Classical history is one of my passions, however, I’ve never thought to celebrate France’s Independence Day before. I think this is a very clever idea and a great excuse to get together with friends and family and have some fun. I’m glad this post came before July 14th because now I have the opportunity to preach the idea to my family and friends and see what they think! I think my dad will be all for it because there isn’t anything he loves more than cheese … okay, maybe my mom and me too lol! You look très chic in your outfit dear “D
