- If you are the host or hostess, make sure you have serving platters and utensils ready for when your guests arrive. Most likely not all of your guests will be prepared with everything they need to serve their food, so you're better off taking care of that earlier rather than later.
- Stick to casual dress. Nobody wants to wear heavy clothing or high heels at a summer potluck. Humid and hot weather will only makes your guests sticky and uncomfortable, especially if you have a fancier attire rule. Tell your guests to dress as light as possible, and to go for comfy sandals.
- Summer party equals hot weather, so don’t underestimate how quickly the ice will go at this potluck. No matter if your party is outdoors or indoors, ice goes fast so make sure to make enough ice in advance or buy a few bags from a local grocery store.
