La Maison de France 


Come beat the summer heat as we gather in the spirit of Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité to celebrate Bastille Day.

La Maison de France ( L'école - French School of Raleigh, The French American Chamber of Commerce of the Carolinas, La French Tech and L'Alliance Française) will celebrate with a Pique-Nique en Blanc on Saturday, July 10th at 6:00PM.

Pack your picnic basket and demonstrate your culinary prowess (or excellent shopping taste), and bring along your  joie de vivre in the spirit of the day. Upon arrival, you will be greeted with a buffet and, of course, vin.   Nibble on these culinary delights to fuel your creativity as you decorate your picnic space, remembering that white is de rigueur.  (While packing your own picnic is not required, it is definitely suggested to enhance the élan of the event!)

White, rosé, and red wine will be served along with the hors d'oeuvres, and you may also pack an appropriate vintage to pair with your picnic.  Sharing is certainly encouraged!

Dress with éclat, remembering that head-to-toe white is the evening's theme.  

Prizes will be awarded for the Most Creative Decor and Sumptuous Spread, and the best outfits.

The cost for this unique event will be $35 per person.  Seating is very limited, so please reserve early to ensure a space.

Tables will be laid with white cloths.  Participants will bring along their picnics, wine glasses, place settings, flowers and other accessories and decor to enhance their space.
