Having a luncheon in the grass completely nude while the men are fully dressed? While that may make quite an impression, it is so 19th Century (Get it? Impression? 19th Century? I crack myself up sometimes). No, the mid-20th Century way to have a glamorous luncheon in the grass is to actually avoid sitting on the grass. But a picnic table won’t do, either. The truly glam-set just pull their boat up to the cement curb of the lake and lay their spread out that way. I’m not sure if ascots are required for the men or not.
Could this be considered a picnic al lago?
