What to do when the cocktails are awesome, but not the conversation?


Have you ever been to a dinner party where there's been an awkward lull in the conversation?

Maybe most of the guests don't know each other and don't really know where to start the conversation? Or maybe someone has just totally put their foot in it and now there's an elephant in the room? Or what if there is one guest who is just monopolising the conversation and no one else can get a word in?

Worse yet, the host is off in the kitchen cooking - so there's no one to turn to in order to rescue the dinner party from impending disaster?

Well, here are my Top 20 Dinner Party Conversation starters guaranteed to get the table talking and the party back on the right track:

"I totally put my foot in it when..."

My absolute favourite food is..."

Something secret you may not know about me..."

When I get around to it I will..."

A road-trip I'd love to take is..."

If I could swap my life with someone else for a day..."

"Things that should never be discussed at a dinner party..."

"A pet hate of mine is..."


"My favourite smell from the kitchen is..."

"When I need a good laugh I..."

"The strangest gift I've received is..."

"My blood really boils when..."

"If I could live anywhere in the world..."

"When I die, I'd like to be re-incarnated as..."

"If I had a million dollars to spend in just one day..."

"Five things I always have in my fridge are..."


"My secret TV indulgence is..."

"My worst fashion disaster was..."

"The strangest thing I've ever swallowed is..."

"My perfect weekend is..."


Try out these conversation starters at your next dinner party - and you can expect to have some great laughs and - hopefully - leave the party with some great new friends too.

Your Comment
How about asking another guest a question about themselves? Like "How was your day today?" or "What kind of things do you really love doing?" This may be more interesting to others than jabbering on about oneself! Just a thought .... Xxxx

One our favourite conversation starters is to get each person to talk about one of their most embarrassing moments. With a few drinks it can be hilarious.
