Stones with messages on themScatter a handful of Penny Stones on banquet rounds, and ask attendees to answer the questions printed on each. Questions include, "What is a favorite summer memory?" and "What would you love to try?" The topics will get strangers talking, and the stones themselves, made of recycled glass, might become a conversation piece as well. Each bag of 21 stones costs $15; aim to purchase one stone per person. If you have more time than stones, ask attendees to answer the opposite of the questions, i.e., "What are you loath to try?"
