Punch by the cupful makes a comeback on the party scene. That’s what I am hoping for. How great would it be to throw a fun dress-up party with actual punch!!! Maybe even Champagne punch. I would be channeling my parents on any Saturday night during the holidays during the 1970’s!!!! My friend Sue Sartor (you know how I LOVE her dresses), recommended this week’s book club choice, Parties Around A Punch Bowl by Kimberly Whitman. Here’s the 411:
Consummate hostess Kimberly Whitman introduces the lively, rich history of the punch bowl, from India to England & Europe to the American South and beyond. She creates a dozen festive party ideas organized around a punch bowl: an Easter Egg Hunt, a classic Blue and White Party, a Bar Cart Party, a Fall Gathering, a Holiday Breakfast Coffee, and more. Recipes for both alcoholic and nonalcoholic punches, plus recipes for what to serve with it are the center of each celebration. Kimberly’s expert hostess tips are scattered throughout. A variety of punch bowls, bases, and glasses featured in the book will send readers out shopping for their own special style.
Kimberly Whitman is a lifestyle and entertaining expert. She has published seven books on entertaining, done countless television appearances, and a daily radio segment on Dallas’s number one morning show. She is an editor-at-large for Southern Living magazine. Kimberly and calligraphy artist Jen O’Neal have created the Halo Home line of monogrammable linens and popular emoji cocktail napkins, which are found in over 85 stores nationwide.– Amazon.com
