How to Throw an Impossibly Elegant French Dessert Party

Every Francophile spends their days dreaming about macarons, cr?me br?lees, and pain au chocolat--and we're no exception. That's why we tapped Manger blogger Mimi Thorisson, who details her mouthwatering culinary adventures at her scenic ch?teau in Medoc's wine country, to not only share a few classic confections from her upcoming cookbook French Country Cooking ($28; available for pre-order on amazon.com)--but show us how to decorate for a cozy-chic (read: French?) soiree. From the easy-to-prep, laid-back menu to a table setting that's full of antique appeal, read on for the full breakdown.
