Я думал дать тебе пару советов, но вряд ли ты примешь. Ты пойдешь своей дорогой, как всегда, а твои друзья будут лишь орудиями, используемыми или отбрасываемыми по обстоятельствам. Это. Более мне нечего сказать.

There is no one who doesn’t love a great dinner party. Who doesn’t love getting invited to a friend’s house and enjoy a meal that they don’t have to cook? It is always so much fun to dress up and go to someone’s house and enjoy a good conversation along with good food. You can enjoy meals of various cuisines. The dinner should always be completed with good-mannered etiquettes. After the dinner ends, the guests should always thank the hosts for the amazing party by sending thank you notes to appreciate the host.

Wouldn’t it be amazing if you thank your host for being very generous and making sure you ate to your heart’s content? Whenever someone invites you to his or her place for a dinner party, you should always send them a thank you note as soon as possible to show them that you have been honoured to be invited as a guest to their house. Who knows, maybe you get invited to their next party for your wonderful manners. On the other hand, if you do not send one, it may not get noticed but if it does, you will be perceived as a rude and ungrateful person. Maybe you won’t get invited the next time. We should thank the host for their precious time, remarkable hospitality, and phenomenal food, courteous and polite behaviour. The host puts in the effort of sending an invite, preparing the meal, being gracious as a host, serving and cleaning up after you leave. Letting him/her know how much you appreciate it is the least you can do. This small gesture goes a long way to show your appreciation.

Here, we are listing some of the best thank you notes that you can send after a dinner party.

Thank you so much for the delicious dinner last time. The food and drinks were superb.

Meeting your family over the dinner was a fantastic experience. I would love to meet your family again.
The dinner was yummy and the cocktails were incredible. Thank you for hosting such an incredible dinner party.

Hence, we have concluded 20 dinner party thank you notes that we think, will be helpful to you in the near future. In today’s society, sending thank you notes for a dinner party is a highly ignored etiquette. But, we should never forget the importance of this small gesture which has an immense effect and shows a lot of thoughtfulness. Sending a thank you note to your hosts means a lot to them. So, go ahead and make your hosts feel special and appreciated.

thank you for a lovely dinner

Hi,
In two independent English texbooks I find this:
"Thank you for a lovely dinner."
With or without context it is quite clear that this is said at the end of the dinner in question and that both the speaker and the listener have in mind one and the same dinner. In my opnion, "the" should perlace the indefinite article, but this is just a logical deduction of mine.
Please, clarify,
Thank you
In fact "Thank you for a lovely dinner" and "Thank you for the lovely dinner" are both polite expressions that would serve equally well. Perhaps the subtle difference might be that using "the" might refer more to the food aspect, while "a" would refer more to the whole, social event. Personally I would opt for "a".
Thank you, Meeracat,
Could I interpret "Thank you for a lovely dinner." to mean "Thank you for one really lovely dinner."?

I'd say it has more the flavour of:

"That was a lovely dinner - thank you".
No, that would not be correct. "Thank you for a lovely dinner" is a normal, polite way of ending an evening where dinner was served. You would say it even if it was a horrible dinner, but it refers to the event. But it refers to the social event not to a particular number of meals.
Thank you, Meeracat, when I put 'one' in bold I wasn't referring to the number of the meals. I did that on the grounds of the fact that 'a' owes its origin to 'one'.
And still, natives are natives!
a is a, one means it isn't two or three. . . Though you might say, for example; "could I please have a piece of cake" or "could I please have just one piece of cake". The second infers an intention not to have a second. The first leaves your options open. My advice is to always keep your options open for an extra piece of cake.
Probably because I'm overly picky, I would say "Thank you for a lovely evening." and, if warranted or perhaps if I have my fingers crossed, I might add "the dinner was delicious."
I agree with sdgraham. In old-fashioned manners, it was thought a little impolite to say "thank you for dinner", because it suggested that eating at another's expense was the real reason you came. "Thank you for a lovely evening" or "thank you for the wonderful time we had" would, under that view, be considered better.

I think there's another fine point to make.

If you're leaving and speaking to the hostess (or host) who actually cooked the meal, I think it would be very bad manners not to mention that the dinner was lovely.

I know if it were me and I cooked an entire meal for someone, they darn well better mention that it was both lovely and delicious.

In my opinion, either article would work, nikkieli.

In this particular instance I've presented in my post here, I would prefer:

"Thank you for the lovely dinner. It was delicious."

It would then seem that a serious misunderstanding would be possible, because there are many people who were taught that no matter how delicious the dinner, it is never polite to say "thank you for dinner", and that what one should express appreciation for is the enjoyment of the host's company rather than the products of the host's kitchen.
Probably because I'm overly picky, I would say "Thank you for a lovely evening." and, if warranted or perhaps if I have my fingers crossed, I might add "the dinner was delicious."
A side note: I believe that sdgraham is referring to a convention among children that if you say an untruth with your fingers crossed, it doesn't count as a lie. I don't know how widespread this is. Thus, if the dinner wasn't very good, and sdgraham wants to be polite but not be guilty of lying, he crosses his fingers and says it was delicious.

Edit: I see that that this post has a slightly different understanding of the convention, but the effect is the same. The above is my childhood understanding. Only sdgraham can tell us which was on his mind.

Wow, GreenWhiteBlue,

I didn't post that just to be contrary. I really meant it. It's my experience here in Michigan that you always compliment your hostess on her culinary skills.

I would even go a step further. It's extremely welcomed when you like someone's cooking so much, you ask for their recipe.

Unless it's a formal gathering by a bunch of snotty, uptight people...this is not behavior that would be met with sneers and raised noses.

That compliment - "Thank you for that delicious dinner. You're a wonderful cook." would happily be accepted here in midwest Michigan.

The only time I would consider controlling my apparently "bad form" would be if I didn't know the hostess hardly at all and it was such a big party there wouldn't be much opportunity to have such an intimate exchange.

You and I don't live that far apart. It's amazing that our outlooks are so dissimilar!

And one more thing: if I slaved over a hot stove for a couple of days cooking my uh, head off, I'd be very depressed if no one said anything about the dinner itself.

AngelEyes

Sorry, it was a tongue-in-cheek comment referring to polite conversation where we sometimes tell little untruths in order not to offend somebody. In other words, a dinner or portion thereof might have been truly awful (or something we personally 'don't like) but we say "it was delicious" out of consideration for the host or hostess even though it might have been a superhuman effort to choke down something.

Cagey has accurately pegged it.
Following up Loob's idea, I think the implication of thank you for a lovely dinner is
- There are lots of dinners in the world.
- Some of them are lovely, some of them are not.
- The one you gave us was lovely.
- Thank you for arranging that this one was a lovely one (one of the lovely ones).

I admire and agree with this explanation of why "a lovely dinner" seems more gracious (to me).

Yes. For my part, if someone I had entertained at dinner at my house said "thank you for a lovely evening, I had a wonderful time", I would consider that person polite and well-bred. It would not occur to me to be be upset or offended because that person had not complimented my cooking, no matter how long I had worked on the meal, nor would I dismiss her as snotty and uptight because she indicated that the main reason she came to my house was not for a free feed, but for my company and conversation. Instead, I would think more highly of her for that very reason.

Maybe I would judge which article to use based on the level of familiarity with my host/hostess.

The indefinitea could mean anything. It's exactly that: indefinite as to what you're really trying to say. Also, in my mind, it goes to the inner reason for my choice of which word I'd use in the first place. Thank you for a lovely dinner. is one step removed from intimate for me.

It could also be based on nothing more than well-bred manners to say the accepted form of a congenial good-bye. It's vague but highly socially acceptable.

It could also indicate that I feel like I'm in more sophisticated surroundings and that indefinite article lifts my responses a bit symbolically using language. What I mean is: maybe I really did love the meal, but I still want to retain a level of formality.

I'd use the definite article under these circumstances:
1. I would want to leave no questions in my host/hostess' mind that the particular dinner served to me that night was delicious. Not just any dinner was good. They're dinner was scrumptious. I might even switch from the to the more personal pronoun your.
2. It was held at the home of a very good friend. And the meal was great. And I loved my friend and wanted to make him/her happy. And the compliment was heartfelt and sincere.
3. I'd want to make a definite statement with no doubt in my mind.

GWB: in light of your response, I'd have to admit that even if Emeril himself prepared your dinner, my stomach would be churning in such dreaded anticipation of giving an incorrect farewell, I wouldn't be able to eat much of anything. My appetite would have left long before I did.

I couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable time than I had at your dinner party. The decorations were marvelous, the food superb, and the company fabulous. You have an ideal home and family. I don't think we'll ever forget John's funny stories after dinner.

We are fortunate to have such wonderful, thoughtful friends. We're very spontaneous, so don't hesitate to call or drop by when you feel like getting together.

Our sincere thanks for having us in your home when we attended the Doe conference last week. It gave us a chance to catch up on the news and get acquainted with your family. We especially enjoyed our evening conversations over bedtime tea. I hope we didn't impose too much on your busy schedule. Please remember that you are always welcome to stay at our place when your travels bring you to Kansas. Thanks again for your warm hospitality.

I can't tell you how much I appreciated your kindness in letting me stay at your home when I was in Springfield. It was a delight to see a loving family interact and enjoy each other's company. It showed me how a family can be close in spite of everyday pressures. You and John have created a great home atmosphere.

I would really like for all of you to come on vacation to our house near the seashore next July. I have plenty of room, and Jane would like to meet you all. I've told her a lot about you. If July is not a good time, how about August?

I want you to know how much I appreciated your inviting me out for the evening when I was in Springfield on Monday. I enjoyed the dinner and conversation, and it was a great pleasure to meet your husband.

Thank you for your kind hospitality.
