I love it.  We’re doing something similar only (and you have to remember that we live in the deep south) we’re doing a grits bar instead of a baked potato bar.  As long as your guests are fed, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with doing it this way.  And yay for having an awesome relative willing to help out!

We’re doing something a lot like this, too. I think it’ll work out great!

I’ve been to a similar reception and I thought it came off very classy.  My only suggestion (and it sounds like you wont’ have that issue) is to make sure there’s a filling veggie option.  A potato bar seems like it would fit the bill, though.

So cute!  If you are crafty, you could make really sweet signs for the fixings.  If she’s okay with it, wou could actually name the potatoe bar after your generous aunt.

Personally, I think pot luck would cause you major stress (bad food, food that doesn’t go together, people not coming through and you’re missing a major dish etc.)  This is a great option and really sweet!

I think that sounds soo good!  It kinda reminds me of a family holiday; very casual and intimate. So sweet of your relative to offer!

I think it’s a great idea!  Much better than the sandwich bar my mother suggested

Carving stations are like the new buffet — classy and fun.  Guests like having choices and moving around!  Yay!
