Spice up the conversation with Tabletopics

Have you heard of Tabletopics?  They're little cards with big questions, grouped by theme!  Hosting a bridal shower, a barbecue, a golf outing, or a book club?  Maybe something else?  There's probably a Tabletopics set for your event!

While it would be fun to just sit around and flip through the questions, I can think of several other uses for these:

1) At an event where people don't know each other very well.  Leave the cards lying around anyplace where people might congregate.  The ice will break and conversation will start to flow!

2) As a creative place setting.  Prop the cards up with a placecard holder, and write the guest's name directly on the card.  If you don't want to do that, get some sticky notes in a color that compliments the card, snip off the sticky part, attach that to the card (cut to size), and write their name on the label you've just created.  Regular labels will be too sticky, and potentially damage the card.

3) As a drink coaster. Take a set of "photo coasters" and instead of a photo, slip a card inside.  Functional and fun!

The Tabletopics web site also has some food, drink, and playlist ideas for decade parties - check it out for 60s, 70s, and 80s inspiration.


Tabletopics are available at Elevenzees, 1903 W Division St, Chicago or online at tabletopics.com

Those look like fun! They definitely need to add the '90s!
