Planning at least two weeks before the party can do wonders. So, let us have a look at the things that you must remember while planning a successful Halloween potluck party.
- Prepare a diversified menu consisting of starters, appetizers, main course, desserts, and beverages
- Decide the menu items after a thorough discussion with your guests and if you are short of ideas just scroll a little
- Ask every guest whom you want to invite to bring at least one dish from the menu and labeled serving platters
- Make sure none of your guests has any issue with any specific food item
- If someone expresses his or her inability in bringing that particular dish, ask to bring some ready-made dish like the same or simply substitute it with another dish from the menu
- As a host, take charge to prepare the main course at home and take care of having adequate number of plates and bowls
- Create a Halloween potluck party signup sheet so that there remain no confusion about who is going to bring which food item. You can also take the help of our free and downloadable Halloween potluck party signup sheets to serve your purpose.
- Place a spooky table cover on your dining table and arrange the tongs, bowls, spoons, plates, and napkins
- If you don’t have any spooky table cover or centerpiece for the table, draw a large spider web in white on your black table cover and your Halloween table cover is ready to grab all the attention
- Go green and try to use only biodegradable plates and bowls so that you don’t have to clean and it poses no harm to the environment
- If you are not getting biodegradable plates and bowls from your nearby shop try to use other kinds of disposable plates so that you are not compelled to do the cleaning job at the end of the party
- Again, as a host make sure you have enough napkins for all the invited guests. If possible customized the napkins for the Halloween potluck party
- Place trash cans to collect the dirty plates at a strategic location inside or outside your home so that it does not become difficult to your guests to locate the same
- Say no to double dips and usage of hands to pick any food item as this may appear very gross to other guests
- Have plenty of water bottle on the table or arrange a water dispenser
- Put a signage outside the guest washroom so that anyone doesn’t face any difficulty or awkwardness
