Kraft Paper for Entertaining



Potlucks are the best. The stress factor is low, almost zilch. And the food is varied, there’s almost always something to please everyone. The hardest part of any potluck, especially a big one at the holidays, is explaining who made which dish and what’s in each dish and blah blah blah. If it’s 20 or 30 dishes, it can take forever.

Problem solved! I run 100% recycled kraft paper down a long table, splash about a bunch of markers and direct guests to write down all the delicious details right by their dish. I also love the consistent look it offers when there’s a mishmash of different plates and containers.

I did this for the Marisa McClellan potluck this summer and Apartment Therapy asked me to explain the idea in a recent video on their site. Enjoy the photos from our kraft paper potluck and check out my One Minute Tip on Apartment Therapy.
