The Informal Table for a Potluck

Are you thinking about throwing a potluck party for this Christmas season?  After consulting with your friends and family about what dishes everybody will bring, read some tips here on how to put the party together.

–         If you don’t have a big table, you can put together smaller tables together. This is ideal as the menu is composed of many different dishes.

–         Use white plates as a base. Since everybody is bringing their own dish you will end up with unmatched serving pieces. You can also use disposable plates in pretty designs. This way you will still have a coordinated table.

–         A complete glass set is not necessary, and you can use different glasses. If you still want to keep a coordinated table, you can pick glasses with a round bottom or glasses with a stem.

–         Make sure there is a beautifully designed place card for every guest and that there is a little present at every place setting. And don’t forget to add a seasonal touch such as branches or lights.
