If you are PLANNING to host a New Year’s Eve PARTY this year, why not consider making the party a POTLUCK event.  Most people consider potlucks for picnics and parties for other occasions, but a potluck is rarely opted for when throwing a New Year’s Eve party.  However, there are a number of advantages to hosting this type of event. Some of these advantages include reducing the amount of work required by the host of the party, ensuring the guests all enjoy some of the food provided and cutting down on the amount of leftovers the host has at the end of the evening. This article will examine the logistics of hosting a potluck New Year’s Eve party.

A potluck is a good idea for a fun New Year’s Eve party.  Some hosts may be hesitant to ask their guests to contribute a dish for the party, but there are a few ways to make the potluck a  fun EVENT. One way to do this is by implementing a theme for the party. The host can take the responsibility for preparing the main course and then ask each guest to bring another part of the meal to the New Year's Eve party with the stipulation that the dish they bring should fit the theme of the party.

While a potluck New Year's Eve party greatly reduces the responsibility of the host in terms of food preparation, it is important for the host to remember that he/she is still responsible for coordinating the meal.  The host should ensure that  all of the components of the meal are provided.  This is important for preventing each guest from bringing a dessert while none of them brings savory items such as the main course, side dishes, salads or appetizers.  One WAY the host can do this is to indicate on each guest's invitation which type of dish they should bring. The host may ask 2-3 people to bring side dishes and 4-5 people to bring appetizers, 4-5 people to bring side dishes, 4-5 people to bring salads and 2-3 people to bring desserts. This will help to ensure there is a VARIETY of items in each category.

It is also important to consider food service when planning a New Year’s Eve party. This logistical matter is especially important if guests will be providing foods that  must be served hot. The host might want to consult with the guests to determine WHAT they will be bringing to contribute to the New Year’s Eve party and HOW the food should be served.  If it is necessary to serve the item hot, the host should plan ahead to make preparations to reheat an item, or keep the item hot if the guest arrives with the item still hot.  This is important because dinner is unlikely to be served immediately when guests arrive.

Beverages should also be carefully considered when planning a potluck New Year’s Eve party. ONE WAY to deal with beverages is for the host to supply ALL of the beverages.  This is a neat solution because alcoholic cocktails are particularly popular for New Year’s Eve parties, and the host may prefer to plan on providing a few signature cocktails throughout the evening and will want to ensure they have the ingredients necessary to create them. While the host may want to provide all of the alcoholic beverages, he/she may allow a few guests to bring non-alcoholic beverages as their contributions to the pot luck.

Finally, when planning a New Year’s Eve potluck, it is important to ensure the guests are aware of any dietary restrictions which should be considered when making food for the party.  For example, if the host is aware that several guests require special diets such as diets for diabetics or diets for those with high blood pressure, he/she should inform the guests who will be preparing food for the party of any restrictions. The host may also want to ensure at least one main dish item is vegetarian in case any of the guests do not eat meat.
