Ok, it's over, but better late than never, I say .... What did you do to celebrate? In fact, I'm not sure if 'celebrate' is the right word, but it is the date that commemorates the 1790 fete de la Federation, which marked one year on from the storming of the Bastille.
Things got a little tricky for King Louis xvi and Marie Antoinette.
....lets say they got very carried away...lost their heads so to speak....?
Anyway, I for one am glad to have an excuse to 'french it up' at least once a year, and this year I found myself at the Bleu Blanc Rouge Sydney french festival.
and red lippy slathered on,
I roamed around the stalls (unfortunately not many, but I will give them a break as it was their first event) which included french champagne,wine and cheese tasting areas, cooking classes, a garlic stall, stage entertainment and more.
And of course, last but not least, my favorite stall, French Affair, with the gorgeous Sue, and all her french inspired goodies.
All in all, Sydney turned on a special sunny Sunday.
So, what did you do for Bastille Day? Dine out at a french restaurant? Cook up a master chef french dinner chez vous? Or simply sip on champagne under a setting sun? What ever you did, I hope you had fun!
Here is a snippet of Paris going off with a bang!
A bientôt, Gigi
