Dreaming of a trip to France for the holidays? Me too 🙂 But, if you really are like me, waiting for your dream to come true can take longer than I have patience for. Instead of waiting, why not bring Paris (or any of your favorite destinations) home for holidays?
3 Ways to Bring Paris Home for the Holidays
- Set the mood with themed holiday decor, like Paris in the 1920’s. Fill your room with golden tones, candles, jeweled glasses, crystals, and vintage art.
- Plan your French holiday menu, complete with frisee and grape salad; duck with cherry-port sauce, potato gratin with leeks and bacon; and a dessert of classic French apple pie.
- Celebrate traditional French holiday customs by making your own Yule log or Bûche de Noël; singing French Christmas carols; displaying a creche or nativity; or attending midnight mass/service at your local church.
Ciao and Joyeux Noël!
