Holiday Potluck Party Themes and Pairings
Cheers to holiday party season! Whether you’re on a committee to organize one for the office or looking for a great reason to get your local Wine Sisters together, look no further than the tried and true potluck.
But don’t just put together the same old thing you did last year! This year, start with a theme that helps your guests get creative with what they bring to the table.
Below are a few themes that will get the creative juices flowing. Plus, wine pairings to truly make it a party. Enjoy!
Big Italian Family
From baked ziti to stuffed shells, meatballs to minestrone, the possibilities here are almost endless. Bring your work family or group of friends together over a big, hearty Italian themed meal. And don’t forget the affogato!
Recipe to try: Anitpasto skewers from Weary Chef
Put all those Italian favorites on one skewer and watch them fly off the table at your potluck. Hang onto the recipe to use as an appetizer at your own upcoming dinner party.
Recipe to try: Gumbo-laya from The Cozy Apron
Yep, you read that right. Gumbo + jambalaya = gumbo-laya.
Eat with Your Hands
Keep the party casual with a theme that involves little to no silverware. Think dips, hand pies and skewered treats here.

Learn a little more about everyone at the party by asking them to bring a dish with ties to their hometown.
