Who Brings What?

It’s really not a good idea to say, “Hey, we’re having a potluck on Valentine’s Day – bring something” or else you’ll end up with 50 trays of store bought Valentine cookies and other potluck desserts!

Try to plan how many main dishes you’ll need, how many sides, desserts, appetizers, drinks, finger foods, etc and let people choose what they’ll bring on your potluck sign up sheet.

You don’t need to stress them out with EXACTLY what dish they’ll bring, but at least get them to commit to bringing one of the above so you have an ideas of who is bring what and everything is covered.

The Basics

Don’t forget to delegate which co-workers will bring the plates, napkins, cups, ice, eating utensils, etc to your potluck.


It’s fine to have a work potluck where people just mingle and eat, but you CAN plan some games or some sort of activity to make it a little extra fun.
