I have a dedicated basket for my feastware. My plates, bowls, eating
utensils, etc live there along with candles, a spare tablecloth [if needed]
napkins, salt and pepper [with small containers to house them], and - most
importantly - plastic bags to put dirty dishes in in case the site does not
allow you to wash there.
That way all my feast items are always - usually - most of the time - :} -
ready to go.
