Entertain Friends with a Quick and Easy Potluck

Entertain Friends with a Quick and Easy Potluck

The whole point of hosting a potluck is to spend time with friends and eats lots of comforting food! There shouldn’t be any stress or worry involved. That’s why we think a potluck should be the next party you throw.

Stick to simple salads, creamy casseroles and perfect pies for this potluck. You won’t spend too much time in the kitchen, and neither will your guests. That’ll give you time to mingle, sip a couple drinks and have a fantastic time!

Presentation Pointers:

  1. Before you decide to go for your famous casserole that needs to be heated up, ask the host if he or she will have room in the oven. On the flip side, if you’re hosting the potluck, ask your guests if any of their dishes need the fridge or oven.
  2. Pick a theme! Parties are so much more fun when the decorations and music match. You could do a Mexican potluck or one that corresponds with the season. 
  3. Not everyone is comfortable with bringing a dish. If you know someone who wants to attend, but prefers not to cook, ask him or her to help with the drinks or utensils.
