Annual Bastille Day Party Planning...

Help me plan my Bastille Day annual party!

This will be the first year of our new "Bastille Day" party that we will host each year. We are both French so we thought what better time to have a party than Bastille Day??

Here is some background:
Bastille Day, July 14, is the French national holiday. The occasion commemorates the storming of the Bastille prison in Paris on that date in 1789, an act the led to the French Revolution. Today, Bastille Day is celebrated in France and abroad with fireworks, parades, festive food and drink and getting together with friends and family.

There are plenty of foods that lend themselves well to the event - but I don't want to just serve French food and wine, I want to throw a fun spin into it...

you know, a nod to marie antoinette with cake
something involving "heads" (no head cheese please)
skewers, etc

big props to anyone who comes through with some killer (haha) grub.

thanks in advance!!

*additional information
lollya is vegetarian and GF, the man is not and loves his meat. lollya = not afraid to cook it.
I'd like options for everyone!
