Heartfelt Thank You For The Hospitality

Being invited to someone’s house for a dinner or party is one of the nicest feelings in the world. However, it can be hard to find the right way to say thank you for your hospitality to the host.  

When someone opens their home to you, they are doing something truly special.  They are welcoming you into their lives  and sharing a part of themselves with you.

So when it comes time to say thank you to your host, be sure to express your gratitude in the best way possible.   

Here are some ideas on what to thank someone for their gracious hospitality!

What Should A Good Thank You Note Include?

While the perfect thank you note may vary depending upon who receives it, there are a few rules that apply to any message. A good thank you note should be written in a timely manner after receiving an invitation/event or hosting an event yourself.

The cards should also be handwritten and hand-delivered if possible; while typed or emailed messages are also appreciated, they are not a substitute for the handwritten ones. Personalized messages and stationery will be best received by your host.

A good Thank You note should:

1) Address the host personally.

2) Thank them directly.

3) Be specific as to the event, or time period in question.

4) Give a hopeful wish for the future- to see them again, or host them at your home.

5) Reiterate the message.

6) Close
