Plan a Potluck Dinner Write up your invitation list and determine whether you’d like to contact people by phone or by mail. If the individual does not have a title, just type the full name.

After you have found the perfect invitation and have everything printed, it is time to address the envelopes. Printed address labels can be impersonal. Thank all your guests and offer to send an update to everyone via email as to what was collected and where it will be used. Will it be a small affair that can be held in someone’s home or are you looking to create a bigger event?
