The best trick you could possibly do however, would be to have a nearly new (presumably bridge) deck that matches theirs in color and brand. Open the deck, do a couple of so-so effects and say "these cards are too old. Let's send them back in time to when they were new!" and transform the old cards into a fresh pack. Then the next time they ask you to do a trick you'll have better material to work with...
Next time you come over though be prepared to do something killer like color changing deck with "their" deck.
