Cut the Tension With These Cutout Cards
Think of something more awkward than sitting around a dinner party table with a bunch of people who have nothing to talk about. The silence getting louder by the second. Go ahead, I'll wait.
You can't think of anything because there's just nothing worse. I'm honestly getting hives even thinking about it. But don't worry, sweet thang. Mama's here to help. Having an arsenal of icebreaker questions on hand is an easy way to loosen people up and de-awkward-ize the vibe. Simply print, cut out and fold these cards and toss them in a pretty bowl. You can either have each person pick their own icebreaker question card to answer or have one person pick the cards and go around having everyone give an answer. I recommend at least one round of cocktails before busting these out.
