Bastille Day is Saturday, July 14, and to celebrate France’s national day, we’re dedicating the week to the very best French things. You may be familiar with stories we’ve done on French pharmacy products and cookbooks, but we’re going even deeper this week, from the best books on Paris and French baking to the greatest French pantry essentials and lesser-known French beauty products. Welcome to Made in France week.
It’s official: France is heading to the World Cup finals. Whether or not you’re a fan of le foot, it’s hard not to get swept up in the frenzy of extra-time goals and penalty kicks. And everyone loves a soiree (or a low-key brunch). So to celebrate Sunday’s big game against Croatia, here are a few last-minute ideas that will arrive just in time for a laid-back gathering for all the Francophiles in your life. Vive la France!
Mini France Flags
Grab a handful of these mini Tricolores and stick them in empty wine bottles for instant tabletop decor. Or wave them each time France has possession of the ball.
