Thanksgiving potluck party can be a good opportunity for you to learn some new recipes and taste some really awesome dishes. Moreover, it eliminates the need to spend long hours cleaning in the kitchen to prepare food in a large quantity for your guests, but like any other party, a thanksgiving potluck party also needs extensive planning. So, please have a look below.
Prepare a guest list
This is the first step in planning any party be it a birthday or a potluck as unless you know the number of guests you will have in your home and their names, it is not possible to coordinate with them. You can consider inviting your friends, colleagues or family members in the thanksgiving potluck party.
For invitations, either you can make use of free downloadable potluck invitation cards that are available on many sites over the web or you can also create DIY customized invitation cards for your guests. Do not forget to include your contact number on each of the card so for any queries regarding the party, they can get in touch with you immediately.
Prepare a menu
Now, this one is a herculean task as the menu must include a great variety of lip-smacking dishes that everyone should love. Also, you need to take care of the fact that whether the majority of your guests are vegan, vegetarian or non-vegetarian. Choose some appetizers, starters, desserts, drinks, and of course, the main course for your thanksgiving potluck party menu. The best way to do the same is to consult with your guests about the menu items. This way you can never be wrong.
Assign one dish to each
This is a crucial step in planning and there are many online tools that can help you in assigning a type of dish to each of your guests invited in the thanksgiving potluck party. You need to thoroughly communicate for the same as it may happen that some of your guests are not aware of the recipe of that particular dish or have no time to prepare the traditional dish because of work or family commitments. So, before assigning the dishes, it better to forward them the potluck party menu. Again, if someone does not know how to cook, substitute the assigned dish with any readymade food item like pizza, burgers, cakes or sandwiches. It is advisable that as a host you should assign the main dish to yourself so that in any case the person assigned to bring the main course could not attend the party remaining guests can have the main couse which is very important.
Request to bring serving platters
It may happen that you don’t have so many serving platters at your home, so it is wise to request your guests to bring their service platters along with the cooked dish. If you have plenty of serving platters and bowls, it is wise to skip this step altogether as not many may seem comfortable with the idea or may get offended. Also, check whether you have some extra tongs and bowls for the occasion or not.
Buy biodegradable plates and cups
There is nothing wrong to go green while having your own enjoyment. So, instead of opting for your regular utensils for the party, buy biodegradable or environment-friendly utensils from a nearby shop. If you are not getting the same, choose disposable cups and plates so that at least you don’t have to engage in cleaning all the dirty plates.
Decorate your home beautifully
Now that everything is done, invest some time and energy in decorating your home but while decorating do not forget to place a trash can at a strategic place to collect the dirty plates and cups. Also, place as many napkins as the number of your guests on the table cloth covering your dining table. As a host, you can also buy something from the market to award the one whose dish got the most appreciation from other guests present in the party.
