Why Go To A Match Screening? When You Can Organise A Cricket Screening Potluck Party Right At Home
Let me just say it out loud. Going out for match screenings is such a hassle! I mean, you turn into Sheldon from Big Bang Theory to pre-book a table with just the right angle and lighting. You have to step out, take an auto, then train, then the metro and you also got to walk for 10 minutes just to reach your destination.
And, when you’re finally there, you are tired. But hey, what if we tell you that you can throw a cricket viewing potluck party right at home? Wouldn’t that solve all your problems? I mean, you get to watch the second ODI match between Indian and NZ on 8th February, while you enjoy it with your friends. That way, you do not have to cook the entire menu all by yourself because your guests will pitch in to get food items.
Wondering how to organise this party? Keep on scrollin’
1. Get Your Cuisine Sorted For Your Potluck Party!
When throwing a potluck party, you need to make sure that you have a fixed cuisine. I mean, you don’t want to have a house party where one guest gets Italian and the other South Indian, right? You can have Mexican, Chinese, BBQ food which will also give your guests the freedom to cook the cuisine and eat what they like!
2. Assign Categories Not Dishes
Best way to make sure that you have everything on the table is by assigning people with categories of foods like appetizers, mains, sides, and desserts. This way, when you actually sit to have food with your friends, you don’t really miss out on anything.
3. What Are Your Food Portions Like?
Since you and your guests will have a lot of options to choose from, make sure to estimate the portion of the food by keeping the number of guests in your mind. This way, you will get to taste it all without actually wasting anything.Good deal, right?
4. Drinks. Drinks. And Drinks.
Potluck party hai aur cocktails nahi? You can keep a couple of pre-mix beverages that your friends can just pour and have a sip from. You can even assign your guests to match their food items with the cocktails that they’re bringing.
5. Label What’s In Your Food
What if your guests are vegan, or lactose intolerant? Well then, you need to mention the ingredients on a stick-on note so that they don’t end up eating it. No one wants a medical emergency in the middle of a cricket match!
Small Stuff Of Counts
6. Rearrange Your Furniture To View The Cricket Match
Get mattresses, chairs to point towards your TV/ projector so that you can watch the match while having food. You can set up tiny tables to keep the food and the utensils on. This will make it easier for everyone to serve themselves.
And, when you have taken care of that, all you have to do is put on the match and potluck it out!
