Providing all of this information sells the feast to the planners and the 
finance committee.  However, it is still difficult to convey my complete 
vision of the feast to the people working directly with me.  This has lead 
to misunderstandings about achieving textures, portions and other things. 
Curiously, I didn't even realize I was visualizing the entire feast until a 
friend who was working with me spotted what I was doing.

Fortunately, I usually work with a core group of good people. 
Unfortunately, they can still misread the instructions, so we still need to 
double check.
