How To Use The Questions On Thanksgiving

Keep your conversations flowing at your Thanksgiving meal with Thanksgiving conversation starters.

Here is an easy way to create a beautiful table {and conversation} this Thanksgiving. After printing out the conversation cards, create a beautiful place setting with them.

  1. Simply buy a few silk leaf branches from the craft store or dollar store. 
  2. Pull off a few leaves.
  3. Place them in the center of each plate. 
  4. Then print out the Thanksgiving conversation starters and cut them apart using scissors or an Exacto knife. I recommend using a white cover stock paper for the cards. 

Questions For Thanksgiving

These conversation starter questions are perfect to start the Thanksgiving table talk. They prompt thought-provoking questions, encourage storytelling, and even provide a dash of humor. Here are some examples of the free conversation cards…

“What is your favorite thing to do as a family?”

“Name a person who inspired you the most this year?”

“Say something you are grateful for about the person on your right?”

“What Thanksgiving tradition do you enjoy the most?”

These are great questions to engage with family as you enjoy your Thanksgiving feast!

Thanksgiving Conversation Topics And Ideas

After using the cards with questions about thankfulness, consider adding a twist to the conversation on your own.

Funny and Lighthearted Prompts: Add a touch of humor to the dinner table by including funny conversation starters. These can range from silly hypothetical scenarios to light-hearted jokes related to Thanksgiving traditions or quirky family anecdotes. Laughter is an excellent way to bond and create a joyful atmosphere.

Personal Reflections: Encourage guests to reflect on the past year by asking questions that prompt introspection. For example, ask each person to share a personal achievement, a lesson they’ve learned, or a goal they have for the upcoming year. This can inspire meaningful conversations and encourage individuals to support one another in their aspirations.

Thanksgiving Trivia: Add an element of fun and friendly competition by incorporating Thanksgiving trivia into the dinner conversation. Test your guests’ knowledge of Thanksgiving history, traditions, and even interesting facts about turkeys. This interactive activity can engage everyone and spark lively discussions.

I know every year I have hosted I have taken the time to create a memorable place card or napkin ring…something I would make.
