Happy Memorial Day weekend in the US! As the unofficial start of summer there is one thing everyone wants to do: Grill Out! Let’s see what’s on our vintage ad picnic menu, shall we?
First up: hot dogs! So convenient in a can! I can see thousands of cold-war era backyard bomb shelters stuffed to the rafters with cans and cans of wieners. Why, the nuclear winter will seem like a picnic with all those hot dogs!
Or maybe we can tempt you with a hamburger, fresh from the tin?
Let’s not forget the condiments! What’s a picnic without ketchup?
Or folks losing their minds over mustard?
…and to wash it all down?
Many wishes for a happy and peaceful Memorial Day!
I think it’s time we bring back the punch bowl! Enough with the wine and craft beer at every party, I want a big crock of Cheerful Whatever poured into a cut glass vessel large enough to take a bath in.
You aren’t on board? You will be after you see these delightful retro recommendations!
You can find this punch bowl at literally any second hand store anywhere. I love thrift shopping and there is always at least one punch bowl at any local shop.
Named after someone in the Four Roses test kitchen was heard shouting “Merry Christmas”after sampling the newest punch recipe. They were later found sleeping it off under the break room table.
Is it just me or is this headline a little threatening? Still, there’s meat and a bucket of rum in crazy-adorable cups so count me in!
It’s important to have sustenance on hand to soak up all that hooch. Be sure to adorn your party table with Elf on the Shelf’s older cousin, Judgy McStink-Eye, who sits on the buffet and makes note of everything you eat and drink. “Oh, you’re having another plate of food…well that certainly is a choice.”
By the way, that’s a tower of tuna…at a cocktail party…where people have been drinking. Good plan!
