A Hygrade Occasion

A Hygrade Picnic Life July 23 1956Well, isn't this lovely. Wearing your finest clothes, lounging on a perfect green-velvet lawn. Sipping something sparkling. This is how we all have cookouts, right?

Soon she will be trying not to get hotdog relish all over that white dress. Or maybe she will try some of that delicious fake Spam! What a feast this will be.

A Hygrade Picnic Life Detail July 23 1956 How about that delicious Hygrade Party Loaf over on the left? Or it might be something else called KP. That might be Kitschy Pâté. I don't really know (Actually, I think it might be Kingan Porkomatic or something).

Whatever it is - bon appétit!

From Life, July 23, 1956, large version here.

A good friend of mine just attended a posh outdoor wedding on Martha's Vineyard this past weekend, and I am certain that this photo was taken at the reception. Looks just like the one she sent me from her phone.

KP? Party Loaf? (shudder)

Is that a BBQ or a wedding reception for two?

It's a good thing this chick isn't partying with Clinton, or she would have hotdog relish all over that white dress!
