The day of:
Set up a station where guests write what they are thankful for as they come in. Set this up near the beverages or snacks and have them fill it out while you get them a drink. Have them drop it into a bowl for later.
Once you have each guest’s answer, take each flag and wrap it loosely around the pencil, writing side up.
Place one spiral in each vial and place at each place setting.
