What do you think of when you see a punch bowl up on a pedestal? I think of wedding showers and receptions of friends and family. Do you remember the ice cream floating in soda concoction, and trying not to ladle an entire scoop of orange sherbet into one glass? I remember the baby showers of my friends, whose kids are growing up and driving and graduating and planning their own futures. What about when the ice all melted and everyone was drinking watered down Hawaiian Punch? You know what I'm talking about. I recall a variety of celebrations, being all dressed up, standing around, waiting for something to happen, sipping out of the cup, and practicing my "Don't I look good in high heels?" look. I'd love to post a picture of that, but I can't seem to find one!
The Holidays are coming. Share a recipe for Ye Olde Punch Bowl. Or share one of your favorite punch line memories.
Ah! And look! Here, I have a fine punch bowl with pedestal, ladle and 11 cups for sale. All glass except the ladle. $15
Margaritas could be fun! Maybe someone should take this to the Junk Gypsy Prom in Warrenton! hmmmm
