My party/picnic supplies are stored in several boxes. I recently went through some of the boxes, especially those that would be useful at the next (and last) Speakeasy party.

Bottom-heavy pitcher.

Two-gallon bucket. Handy for mixing up non-alcoholic drinks such as iced tea, limeade, etc.

We have over 500 shiny "cow" stickers. We don't need to buy more. The small galvanized bucket can be used as a little wastebasket on the table, to collect used toothpicks.

Two plastic pitchers. The green one would be used behind the scenes, the acrylic one could be used in the Speakeasy because it looks close enough. The two bus tubs are handy, not just for collecting the dirty dishes but also to use as a portable sink for washing the dishes.

Galvanized metal bucket. I usually fill it full of soft drinks and ice, and put a large folded-over towel underneath.

Another large heavy pitcher. Teabags for iced tea. Toothpicks that should be packed in the big toothpicks and skewers box. The green food coloring is so we can put a drop in the Limeade. Doorstops are handy to have, a big chunk rubber one would be even better. Dish soap is important but in a pinch we can substitute shampoo.

Another plastic pitcher, with 48 oz. of orange juice. That's one 12-oz. can of concentrate, which I mixed up in the bottle of the two-gallon bucket - the first line is the 2-quart mark, but by using it I didn't splatter any orange juice. I've found the limeade to be more popular than the orange juice; we can skip it if we want to.

Glass pitcher, plastic pitchers, and crystal art deco pitcher.

Small glass pitcher (basically a large glass mug with a pour spout), very bottom-heavy pitcher, and the heavy glass pitcher.
