Plan The Ultimate Thanksgiving Office Potluck

Thankfully most companies are closed on Thanksgiving but that doesn’t mean you can’t still spread the holiday cheer around the office. A great way to do that is with an office Thanksgiving potluck!

Follow our tips below to plan the Ultimate Thanksgiving Office Potluck!

Make sure everyone at your workplace knows about the potluck by sending out an office wide email. And we all know that not everyone checks their email in a timely manner so post a few flyers around the office, in common areas such as the break room or kitchen.


Everybody loves pie, but you don’t want to end up with 6 pumpkin pies and no turkey at your potluck! Be sure to post a sign-up sheet so employees can announce what they are planning to bring, this will help to eliminate duplicate dishes. Also consider including a list of suggested items, this way you can ensure that everyone has a genuine Thanksgiving experience!


Thanksgiving is a time for helping others. Ask employees to bring non-perishable foods to donate to a food pantry.


Make sure you have everything you need for the party by planning ahead. Do you have enough tables and chairs? Do you need table linens? Are there enough plates, flatware and cups? Will there be other activities such as games or raffles? Determining what you need in advance will help guarantee that you get everything you want and will eliminate any last-minute running around.


While food is typically the highlight on Thanksgiving, surprise your employees with games, contests and prizes. These activities will encourage everyone to get to know each other and promote team-building.
