Get a nice cloth tablecloth (light-colored) and have everyone write what they're thankful for on the tablecloth. Keep this going every year. Use different colored markers for each guest. Or, if you don't have enough colored markers for that, have everyone use the same colored marker for that year, a different one for next year, etc. You'll want to put a clear plastic "tablecloth" on top of this one so that you don't ruin it.
