[SCA-AE] Feast Question

Greetings from Solveig! I am helping plan a Japanese feast
tentatively scheduled for about May of next year. Here is a question
Presentation is an important part of Japanese cuisine. Thus, we are
thinking about bundling basic Japanese feast ware of some sort into
the on-Board cost. Here are the options:
1. Everyone onboard gets a set of feast ware.
2. Only an "above the salt" group gets a set of feast ware.
3. Nobody gets a set of feast ware.
Another interesting question is whether to make the feast ware for
temple style (and this implies a vegetarian menu) dining or for elite
style (and this implies your furry, feathery, and finny friends being
on the menu) feast ware. Both are interesting.
Another issue is of course seating. Traditionally, Japanese sit on
the floor during banquets. To what extent should people sit at
tables? I'm inclined to group those at tables as foreign guests and
have them use their own feast ware.
Anyway. I'm looking for suggestions.
Thank you very much for your help.
Your Humble Servant
