Delightful and Dangerous: The Punch Bowl

Celebrate this holiday season with a punch, a  punch bowl that is.  This historical way of serving cocktails is making a big come back and David Wondrich's book "Punch" tells of its delights and dangers.   Take a look at some bowls that are deserving of becoming the main attraction at any party.

I love the shape of the 14-piece liberty punch bowl set.

The cheers punch bowl has an art deco look.

Crate and Barrel's 10-piece set is simple and elegant.

When hosting your next party consider using a punch bowl.  It's an easy way to serve a delicious cocktail to a lot of people without being tied up at the bar.  It really does free one to chat and mingle with the guests.  Be forewarned, the ladle is very easy to pour and your guests will be in a holiday 'spirit' rather quickly.  To see photos of a recent party I hosted , due in part to a great find at a second hand store, go to Cocoon's Facebook profile.
