There are certain items that are really handy to have for your guests. For paper/other disposable products, consider having a little stash of the following:
- Paper Plates (may be even the kind that snap together to create a lidded plate)
- Paper Napkins
- Plastic Utensils – assorted
- Paper/Foam Coffee Cups – with lids
- Foil Pans – with lids
These products especially help when your guests are preparing to leave you. A homemade meal on the road becomes a possibility when you offer them plates, napkins, and utensils. The driver can take along a strong cup of coffee, if you have a disposable cup to give him. Foil pans provide opportunity to share the enormous quantity of left-overs that may very well be there after your meal(s). Always have the perspective of being better able to serve your guests. This is one simple, affordable step in the right direction.
