Fall Table Topics Ideas

Table Topics Ideas for the Fall Season

Here are some Fall season-themed Table Topics session ideas to help engage a group discussion amongst your friends. 

Leaves are changing; temperatures are dropping; the kids are back in school, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and “Winter is coming” (wink to Game of Thrones fans). Keep the conversation going with these fall season table topics questions.

Fall Table Topic Themes

  • Have leaves (real or fake) with various fall colors in a bowl, and have each leaf have a different question for your table topics session.
  • Or use the color of the leaf and a word printed on it to be the source of their story (i.e., A red leaf, the term is “car”…now they have to tell a story about a red car.)
  • Put various types of Halloween candy in a bowl, and each candy refers to a pre-determined question or topic. The contestant gets to keep the candy after their speech. (Check out Halloween Table Topics for scarier questions!)
