A meal with friends is only ever as good as the questions we ask one another. Too often, we fall back on polite but not so inspired staples: ‘Have you got anything special planned for the week-end’ ‘What do you do?’, and so on. But there are questions that work like magic keys that open up our hearts, draw out our memories and prompt our latent reserves of generosity, fun and interest.
This pack collects together 80 of these sorts of questions, to ensure that a meal together can be at once meaningful, entertaining and touching. Laid out on place cards, the questions gently and charmingly pull our fellow diners towards the sort of topics that matter most to our deeper selves – and help us to get the most out of one another.
