Potluck dinners are an enjoyable way to get together with your neighbors or community members to celebrate an event, a victory, or just simply to have fun eating and being together. Planning a potluck, however, can be tedious without a proper system of organization. You’ll need to create an event checklist, a to-do list for the organizers, and signup sheets for people to input the kind of food they’ll be bringing.
You’ve come to the right place. Here we have compiled sample signup sheets for your potluck dinners suitable for many settings—whether it’s a Christmas potluck, an office potluck, or a get-together potluck between club members. These are easily available for download, so you don’t have to go through the trouble of making a fresh one.

Planning a Potluck Dinner
- Have a theme in place. It is a good idea to center all you preparations around a single theme; that way, nobody gets confused about what to bring, what to wear, or what to expect. Themes can vary from the types of cuisine (Chinese, Mexican, Italian, etc.) to an ingredient that should be used in every food, or to a method of cooking.
- Plan the courses. A typical potluck will have appetizers, main courses, desserts, and drinks. Put up a signup sheet before the potluck so no two people will bring the same food. We have sign-in sheet templates available for this task ready for you to download.
- Count the mouths to feed. Give the members of your potluck group exactly how many people they will be cooking for. The potluck signup sheet will give them a rough estimate.
- Serve only the best. Prepare the food at such a time before the dinner that they are still fresh and hot. Tell your potluck members to make it taste and look good.
- Stay organized after pandemonium. To make sure that no utensils or food items or containers are lost, it is a good idea to provide a sign-out sheet as well. You can browse through our selection of sign-out sheet templates to help you with this.
