The TableTopics Story

Fifteen different TableTopics products
About the Founder

TableTopics® conversation starters is an idea that grew from a genuine desire to have more meaningful conversations with family and friends.

Our founder, Cristy Clarke, came up with the idea on her way to a holiday party. She wasn’t looking forward to having the “same old small talk with the same group of friends.” So, she jotted down a few questions to ask each guest. Her fellow party goers loved it and she did too. The next day, she did the same, this time around the dinner table with her husband and three young daughters. They loved it! And, TableTopics® Questions to Start Great Conversations was born.

“I truly believe that every conversation has the potential to be great – to inspire us to action, enrich our relationships, and connect us with the people we care about most.”

—TableTopics Founder Cristy Clarke

Question Writing

Cristy crafted the questions back then and we have a small team that does the same today. From time-to-time, we call on an expert in a field or on a subject just to make sure we really capture the essence of a topic.

Packaging and Design

Cristy tapped the brilliant team at Propp + Guerin, an award-winning graphic design company based in the San Francisco Bay Area, to come up with the beautiful cube container that holds the perfectly proportioned 3 x 3 inch cards. She wanted TableTopics® to be something you wanted to keep on your dinner table, kitchen counter, or coffee table all the time. It had to blend well with any décor and catch your attention at retail. It does all that and we wouldn’t change a thing.
