Potluck Party TableThe Oxford Dictionary defines “potluck” as “a meal or party to which each of the guests contributes a dish.” As such, its very nature involves everyone chipping in for food and refreshments, instead of leaving everything up to the poor host—a great solution for celebrating during a cash crunch.

The Washington Post suggests that potlucks can be divided into two categories: first, the official and organized “everybody has to bring something” affair, and second, a more informal event in which the host hopes that guests are considerate enough to bring some food with them. If you’re planning a potluck party, it would be best if everyone is informed about it, the better to avoid confusion and other mishaps. Here are some tips to help you with your potluck preparations.
