The October 2007 Kingdom Exchequer Handbook
doesn't really say. I searched under feasts and head table.
Page 39 does have this statement:

2. We may not accept donations of alcohol (CP, VIII).

(I am left wondering if we are getting more stringent on alcohol.)

The Local Exchequer Handbook April 2006
states what Gretchen mentions below but more importantly on page 32 it 

" B. Money may not be spent on events closed to the general populace and 
without a specific
administrative agenda (SFP IX.E).
This includes Royalty Dinners, Peer Parties, or similar events. Special 
expensive dishes presented at a feast intended
for the consumption of only a few people is allowed, although strongly 

Did the same search through the Seneschal's Handbook
and didn't find anything there.
