  5. Use laminated funny photographs of your guests as placemats. It’s hard not to story-swap with these staring at them as they eat!
  6. If you can, opt for round tables for circular seating. Then people can chat as a group instead of being limited to conversing with the person sitting right next to them.
  7. Who doesn’t love an ice-breaking game of trivia?
