Yesterday’s Feather Your Nest event with Dr. Harville Hendrix and Dr. Helen LaKelly Hunt was fantastic.  They were so charming and gave us tips on forming better relationships!  They were all about communication and my favorite life-changing tip was about getting rid of the negativity.  They admitted that at one time they were addicted to negativity and resorted to using a sticker-chart to reward themselves when the went a day with out a negative comment, look or word to each other.

They got me thinking about the importance of great communication and it reminded me of Table Topics!  My dad always made us go around the table at family dinners or even formal dinner parties and share the answer to the question du jour.  It was great and certainly brought us closer as a family!  Table Topics is a fun way to do the same either with your family or friends.  They have blocks full of questions that can be used for various occasions.  They have them for couples, slumber parties, teens, book club, dinner party or “not your mother’s dinner party!”  They even have special travel size cases for picnic, barbecue, tailgate, honeymoon, bachelorette party, new years eve, road trip and more!  For a cocktail party they have napkins with the questions printed all over them.  Such a fun conversation starter!
Here are some sample questions:

  • what did you get into trouble for the most when you were young
  • in your opinion what are the seven wonders of the world
  • which historical sporting event would you like to witness
  • which is more important intelligence or common sense
  • if you could do something dangerous just once with no risk what would you do
  • where would you choose to live if you had to leave this country
