Do you want to mimic a "traditional" picnic set-up where everybody gets a paper plate and plastic utensils and fills their plate from big bowls of mixed raw foods, such as salads with dressing?

I opt for simple containers with finger-ready foods. No recipes, no plates - pick and eat only, which is okay because my guests are my grandchildren. There is something about "raw" that also says "simple" to me.

I like both of those suggestions, and agree the fingers before forks tradition could be used with towels or damp cloths to keep fingers clean.   Simple tongs might be preferred, and plates prepared with individual raw strips or small chunks and salad options in a bowl.   I have resorted to sandwiches with raw filling -fish or meat- when in mixed company to avoid attention, till some *** discloses what I am eating to the surprise of all present!!!   I refuse to be embarrassed!
