NYE 2013 French Bistro Party

I searched high and low for ideas on how to host a French Bistro-themed party.
So if you land on this page by searching for the same topic, hope this helps.


Table setting: 
Hubby created an Eiffel sketch and a chalkboard canvas with the menu written on it.

Party Details:
Personalized glass tags

For the Kids:
Bought some Disney tables for our little guests and it was such a hit! 
Also made a truffle mac and cheese for them.

 As for our outfits, it was more Michelin star than bistro, LOL! 
Oh well, it made for such fun photos!
