I received an adorable package from my friends at Avène, Klorane, and Rene Furtherer for Bastille Day, and inside there was a little packet with French Phrases for Your Picnic. After sharing this on Instagram, I asked if I could create a post around it so you could bookmark the phrases and practice for your picnic at home in your backyard or your future picnic in Paris.
