Decoration Ideas for a French Party


You don't need a passport to transport guests to a fabulous French-themed party. Offer some fun, romance and a little bit of mystery. Choose a more specific themes, such as "An Evening in Paris," "Spring in Paris" or "Moulin Rouge." Also, consider various levels of formality. Then, begin decorating for a French look.

An Evening in Paris

  • An Evening in Paris can be a party filled with mystery, intrigue, and elegance. This theme is fitting for a formal evening. Have a nighttime Paris scene setter, which includes a backdrop of the Eiffel Tower and a full moon. If you have light walls and want to create a darker look, use dark velvet pipe and drape.

    Tables should be classically designed. Place white linen cloths on your table. Your centerpiece can include a single rose or a dozen roses. The number of roses depends on the how large the tables are. You may also include candles in your centerpiece for full-fledged romance. Use candles throughout the event to heighten the ambiance. Play French music for added romance.

Moulin Rouge

  • The classic tale of Moulin Rouge has a distinct look and feel. This event can range between formal to informal, so decorate as such. Red and black will be the color palette for the party. Buy or rent a neon Moulin Rouge sign and place this near the entrance. Moulin Rouge scene setters are available as a backdrop for your event. Have streamers and balloons. Use dark velvet pipe and drape to add luxury.

    Entertainers can heighten the atmosphere of your entire event. If you have a high budget, have cabaret entertainment, female vocalists and a band. For a more affordable option, play the "Moulin Rouge" soundtrack.

    You have various options for table centerpieces. Consider feathers or roses in a vase. Lay out a square rhinestone cloth beneath your centerpiece. Have red and/or black tablecloths.

Springtime in Paris

  • Display a Parisian flag near the entrance of or at your event. Utilize the flag's colors for your theme: red, white and blue. Place white linen table clothes and use classic single red rose in a glass vase as your centerpiece. Look for replicas of famous French artwork, such as the works of Claude Monet. Have a scene setter with a Paris background. Hang a giant poster of the Eiffel Tower. Play French music. Food is also an integral part of the Parisian atmosphere, so include wines, cheeses, crepes and creme brulee. Hire a mime, artists with palettes and easels, or a caricature artist.
