Good etiquette dictates that when accepting an invitation, a note announcing your acceptance should be written, especially if the event is formal. This note should be handwritten, formal and gracious in tone, and must be sent within a few days of receiving the invitation. If a RSVP card is provided, a few succinct lines can be written on the other side of the card, otherwise, you can use your own stationary, or purchase a set from local office supply store. Do not use printer paper!

Write an AWESOME thank you note for dinner

If you’ve had dinner at a friend’s house or went to a dinner party, be sure to follow up with a thank-you note.

First I will share some reasons on why you should write a thank you note for the dinner. That will be followed by one exception. And then I will share tips on how to make your note awesome!

Reasons to write a thank you note to host:

Their Time: Making dinner takes a lot of time and organization. Most hosts clean their house extensively to have it ready for visitors.

Hospitality: The host opened up their home to you. They hosted a potluck for your group. They may not have had to prepare all (if any) of the food but they still had you into their home.

The food: To compliment them on a dish you enjoyed. You can also request the recipe in your note.

It’s polite: Show your good manners and get invited back again! If the host feels appreciated they are much more likely to do another dinner.

They respected your diet: The host followed your special diet (paleo, no sugar, no whatever) or made your favorites. They didn’t make anything you are allergic too or hate.

Gathering everyone together: Eating together is about more than the food. It’s about spending together, connecting, and building stronger relationships.

Add your own reasons!

Exception – the weekly meal:

If you have a weekly meal with the same group of people you do not need to write the host a thank you note each time. Be sure to thank them in person before leaving each week. Then you can write them an occasional thank you note.

When possible, my sister has me over for dinner about once week. And my parents have my husband and I and my sister’s family over for lunch nearly every Sunday. I say “thank you” each time but do not send a weekly thank you note.  I feel that a weekly thank you note is over the top and eventually will just become routine and not meaningful.

How to make your note awesome:

Indicate when the dinner was. Mention something specific that you liked. Only saying “Thanks for dinner” will feel very generic. What exactly are you thanking them for? If you loved a particular dish tell them. If you met new friends at the dinner, thank the host for the introduction. Recognize the amount of time it took them to prepare.

The specific details make your note awesome!

Example formula for dinner:

Dear [insert name],

Thank you for dinner [insert when dinner was]. I liked the [insert favorite dish]. [insert one or more of the reasons listed above – phrased in your own words]. I hope we can share dinner again soon!

Thanks Again,
[insert your name]

Thank you for dinner thank you note examples:

Dear Jennifer,

Thank you for having me over for dinner last Tuesday. I enjoyed visiting with your family. And thank you for making a 21 day sugar detox friendly meal! The Brussels sprouts were fantastic.

Love Heidi


Dear Violet,

I enjoyed the dinner at your house last Friday night. I am amazed with the amount of dishes that you made and they were all so wonderful. Thank you for spending so much time to prepare it. The grilled lamb chops were my favorite!

Thanks Again,

Heidi


Dear Cindy,

I was very impressed that you bought Practical Paleo to make a paleo meal for Ted and me. I hope you like the book as much as we do! We enjoyed the meal you made for us and appreciated that you are giving paleo a chance. Next time we will have to our place for more paleo inspired recipes!

Heidi


Dear Mr. and Mrs. Jones,

Thank you for inviting Ted and me to your home for dinner. The pot roast and mashed potatoes were delicious. Your living room felt cozy with the fireplace during dessert. Next time we will have you over to our place!

Best regards,

Heidi and Ted


 

Dear Janet,

Thank you for dinner! Being invited over at the last minute was a welcomed surprise. I was so happy to not have to make something after work. You are a wonderful neighbor and friend. The chicken soup was amazing too!

Sincerely,

Heidi


 

Dear Bill and Lindsey,

The dinner party was awesome last night! We had a great time eating, laughing, and visiting with the others.  Your friend, George, is so funny! Where did you find the time to make all of that food? The walnut stuffed dates wrapped with bacon were one of the best things I have ever tasted! We are looking forward to the next party already!

Thanks again!

Lina


I hope this post will inspire you to write thank you notes to the host when you’re invited to dinner!

 

Start by thanking the host for the invitation using a phrase like “Thank you so much A gift with a note explaining how sorry you are that you can't be present lets.

Thank You For Inviting Us

Dear Julie and Tom,

Just a note to say thanks for the lovely dinner the other evening; we really enjoyed ourselves. The meal was scrumptious, especially the chocolate dessert. You must give me the recipe sometime. It was great to meet your neighbours, Joan and Dave. They seem like a really nice couple and you obviously get on well.

Next time it's dinner at ours!

Thanks again and see you soon.

Love,

Dear Joanne,

Thanks for inviting us to brunch last Sunday. We had a lovely time and enjoyed trying out your new recipes. You should write a book! We adored the eggs benedict and those tiny blueberry muffins.

It was great to see your Mum again. She is looking well after her operation.

Let's catch up again soon.

Love,

Party Thank You Notes

Dear Peter

Thank you for inviting us to your 50th birthday party. We had a fantastic time last night and Thomas has a headache today to show for it! We hope you enjoyed yourself too and are not feeling too delicate today.

The food was simply delicious and the service superb. We can't wait to go back to that restaurant again. I can't believe they let us all sing until the early hours of the morning; what stars!

Thanks again for the great time.

Love,

Sleepover/Overnight Stay Thank You Notes

Dear Tom and Rosie,

Thanks for having us last weekend. We really enjoyed it and the kids had a great time. You both made us feel so welcome and went to so much trouble in ensuring that everything was perfect.

Your house looks wonderful. It's amazing how much you have achieved in a few short months of renovating.

We look foward to you all staying with us in the autumn.

Thanks again and take care.

Love,

-------------------------------------------




Dear Deb and Bob,

Let's just say we really enjoyed staying with you last week. The kids can't stop talking about what a good time they had and can't wait until the next time!

You really put yourselves out for us and we felt totally spoilt. In fact it was like staying in a hotel what with all those fabulous meals you prepared and the fluffy towels in the bathroom.

We are looking foward to you staying with us in October as we always have such a good time together.

Thanks again and see you soon.

Love,

------------------------------------------------------




Dear Deb and John,

Thanks for having me for the last 5 days.  I had a fabulous rest, just what I needed.  I hope I didn't put you out too much as I know that having visitors can be tiring.

My flight home was delayed, yet again which was such a nuisance.  So it's back to normality now, after having been so spoilt.

Thanks again and lots of love,


-------------------------------------------------




See how easy it is to say thank you in a few short sentences. I hope my thank you note samples have given you some of your own ideas to encourage you to write the perfect thank you note.

I want to send an email of accepting an invitation as the chief guest?

How to accept an invitation as the chief guest?

In your letter, you first have to express your appreciation for the invitation. Then, accept the invitation. You can also reiterate some of the information that was included in the original invitation to show the host that you understand the event. It's also important to ask if there's anything you need to prepare before you show up to the event.

Was this helpful? Yes | No| I need help

Letters like this do not have to be lengthy; you just want to make sure that you understand what is required of you for the event and what you can expect when you arrive.

See more questions like this: Hi, actually we are going to go to another country for a meeting and the host declared: " We will arrange the transportation and accommodation accordingly. " Now how can I accept it by email?

Your friend,

There is an invite to our general secretary, I need to accept the letter and accept our participation in the event?

Acceptance letter for an invitation.

To write a proper acceptance letter, make sure you cover the following points:

  • Your appreciation of the invitation.
  • Your understanding of the event.
  • Your acceptance and confirmation of attendance to the event.
  • Ask if anything needs to be prepared prior to the event.

The letter does not have to be long. As long as you confirm that you are indeed attending, your letter is good enough to send.

Well I'm looking for more examples from native speakers -- not only invitations but also postcards, short notes, messages?

Hope you can help me, please? Thank you. More samples of different types of letters.

Keep in mind that letters, especially those for invitations, should never be too long. All you need to do is state the purpose of the letter and include the corresponding details. You also have to indicate what type of response you are expecting from the person you are writing to. Most letters are expected to be that way unless it's a very personal letter.

Although you are requesting that the time is changed because of a previous engagement, this reschedule may take you out of the running for the position.
