Cookies and Platters

My awesome wife serves on the local PTA.  Once, there was some cookie consternation at a student event.  Some grown-ups were dumbfounded that there were no serving platters or tablecloths for the refreshments. (My very wise wife is an adherent of function before form.)  The plastic cookie containers from the grocery store just wouldn't do.  Something had to be done to prettify the situation.  They got as far as cutting the tops off the packaging to make it more "presentable."

All the kids wanted was the cookies.  Who were the platters for, and who were the cookies for?  In our interactions with our youth, or even with the other adults involved, are we more concerned with platters, or with cookies?
