All of the Fancy Things.
5. If raw oysters freak you out, serve them broiled.
9. Make a decadent champagne custard for dessert.
11. In lieu of a whole cheese plate, serve adorable, bite-size baked brie.

16. Or go the easier route, and adorn store-bought macarons (already fancy) with glitter paint.
