How to Organize a Potluck Party

The term "potluck party" has an old-fashioned ring to it. We picture ladies in their Sunday bonnets and June Cleaver dresses, teetering in high heels while carrying a large dish covered in a checkered cloth. But in reality, potluck parties are an ideal form of entertainment for the contemporary host or hostess who would like to gather with friends but is too busy running between the office and the soccer fields to host a formal party. Whenever the impulse to host casual get-together strikes, you can call up your friends, neighbors or family, tell them you're organizing a potluck, and ask them to bring along one dish to share with the rest of the group.
