Whether you are invited or doing the inviting this holiday season, choosing a potluck over a more formal dinner party can relieve a lot of stress. When everybody brings something it takes a great deal of pressure off the host and offers guests the joy of contributing to the festivities.
If you’re hosting you need to …
1. Pick a theme for the menu, like Comfort Food, Thanksgiving Bounty, or Christmas Favorites.
2. For one dozen people, at the least, you will need approximately two or three appetizers, two side dishes, bread and butter, two desserts, one salad, and one main dish.
