I have been so excited to finally get to post all these recipes and ideas for Weddings and Graduation...which are two very big Punch events! Here is another "Party Idea" from the 50's:
Is there a June graduate in your family? Why not mark the great occasion with a lawn party for classmates of 53? The girls in their white party dresses, the boys in their blue coats, can toast each other's success with Amber Punch served dramatically from a wonderful fruit-garnished watermelon bowl. Have a camera and plenty of color film to record this event.
