Dear _______________,

Thank you so much for bringing over pizza for dinner last night. When you arrived at our front doorstep with two large pizzas in hand we felt delightfully surprised and incredibly grateful. Moving and unpacking is hard work and we hadn’t stopped to eat lunch that day. Sow when you arrived we were starving and ready to take a much-needed break and eat! You are such a thoughtful sister-in-law. I feel so lucky to be part of your family.

Thanks a million,

Christmas Dinner Thank You Note Wording

Dear _______________,

What a fabulous idea to host a Friendship Gratitude Dinner Party! As a newbie in New York with no nearby relatives to share the holidays with I really appreciate being invited to join you and your long-time friends for Christmas dinner. I love how warm and inviting your apartment is, and all of the white-and-red holiday decor was so festive. And your friends were so friendly and inclusive. The glazed Christmas ham you baked was absolutely amazing! I’d love to have the recipe. Thank you so much for sharing the joy of the season with me. It’s hard being away from my family and friends in California, but you helped make this first year away from home a bit easier for me.

Happy Holidays!

Dear _______________,

You are such a gracious hostess. Thanks so much for hosting our big Christmas dinner this year. Everyone had such a great time and lots of new memories were made. And dinnertime was amazing. What a fabulous feast! We’re all still talking about how awesome your bread-and-sausage stuffing was and your incredible mile-high apple pie. If you don’t mind, I would love to have the recipes for both of these scrumptious dishes. We feel so grateful that you opened up your beautiful home to such a large group of family and friends for Christmas dinner. Next week I’ll give you a call to see when it would be convenient for me to pop on by. I’d like to drop off your Christmas baking dish and a few pieces of Tupperware that you lent to me. Thanks again for everything.

Happy New Year!

Thanks for Helping Me Cook Christmas Dinner

Dear _______________,

I want you to know what a huge help it was that you came over to the house early to assist me with preparing all of the side dishes for Christmas dinner. I originally thought I could handle cooking up this important meal all by myself, but as a newbie host I realized pretty quickly that morning that there was no way I could pull it off on my own. If it weren’t for you we would have ended up having dinner at midnight instead of 5 o’clock. I cannot thank you enough for your willingness to swoop in and give me a hand. You are so awesome!

Thanks again,

Dear _______________,

Thank you for coming to see my mother in the hospital yesterday. She and I both really appreciated that you took time out of your busy schedule to come by and lift her spirits. Thank you also for inviting me out for dinner at a nearby restaurant once my mom fell asleep. That was so thoughtful of you. Over this past week the majority of my meals have been taken at the hospital cafeteria, so I really enjoyed going outside and having a nice dinner with you in a relaxed atmosphere.

Dear _______________,

I’m so grateful to have such great friends like you and Maggie. Thank you for stopping by to check in on me after my knee operation. And thank you so much for bringing take-out Italian food from my favorite restaurant. That was a real treat! I haven’t been able to cook much after the accident last month and then my surgery, so for the most part I’ve been relying on frozen dinners, canned soup, and pizza deliveries. Enjoying that delicious restaurant dinner you brought was so amazing. I’m hoping to be back on my feet again and feeling like new very soon. And when that time comes I’ll cook up a yummy gourmet meal and invite the two of you over for dinner. Thanks again!

Sincerely,

Dinner Thank You Note

Dear _______________,

I loved that you stopped by after work to visit me and meet tiny sweet Jack. As a single mother at age 38 with a newborn my life has really started to get hectic. But adopting baby Jack has been the best decision I have ever made. And working from home has been a huge blessing. Thank you so much for changing his diaper, rocking him in your arms and giving me a chance to jump in the shower. And a huge thanks for inviting me out to dinner at Juan’s Mexican Restaurant so we could visit a bit longer! You know how much I love Mexican food and socializing. As I get settled into a new routine I’ll be able to get more organized and be able to resume participation in our monthly Bunco Nights and our frequent happy hours out with friends. Thanks again for dinner and a great visit!

Cheers,

Oh my goodness, what a feast we all enjoyed at your home for Thanksgiving. That dinner was really incredible. I’ve never seen such a large spread with a wide variety of foods covering several different cultures. All the entrees, side dishes and desserts looked and tasted amazing. The buffet tables with restaurant-style chafing dishes all lined up in a row reminded me of those lavish buffets in Las Vegas. You really outdid yourself this year!

Thank You for Dinner

Dear _______________,

I can’t believe how long it took for us to finally get together, have dinner and catch up on life! Two years? That’s pretty embarrassing as we both live in the same city only 20 minutes apart. But I know, life gets hectic. I’m just glad to have had a chance to see you and your hubby and introduce you to my fiance. And once we were together I loved that we just picked right up where we left off, like no time had passed. Thanks so much for picking up the tab for dinner, you two were very sneaky about that. Hahahaa. But seriously, the next time dinner’s on us!

Love and hugs,

Thank You Card Wording for Revolving Dinner Party

Dear _______________,

Thanks so much for the dinner invite. What a great idea it was to have a revolving dinner party with a fun Mexican theme! I greatly enjoyed having appetizers and cocktails at the Johnson’s home followed by salad and entrees and the Davidson’s home. But the literal icing on the cake was having dessert at your lovely home. You really out did yourself with the Pinterest-worthy dessert table layout complete with a festive backdrop! When I first saw it all I could say was wow! Next month it’s my turn to host the desserts, and you’ve raised the bar pretty high! I may need to borrow a few cake stands and possibly enlist your help for the set-up. Thank you so much for being an incredible dinner hostess. And thanks for giving me some really great ideas for desserts!

Hands down you host the best dinner parties ever! Thank you so much for the dinner party invite and for including my new boyfriend too. We both had a terrific time. I was completely amazed at all the gorgeous food and desserts. Everything was so artistically arranged on beautiful tiered stands and platters. Your inventory of fabulous party supplies with tables, linens, chairs, pop-up tents and chafing dishes rivals that of a party rental store! And what a great idea to hire a bartender for the evening. The drinks were outstanding, and your event’s signature cocktail was delicious. I’d love to have the recipe. Thanks again for a delightful evening.

Sometimes the best dinners ever are those that are planned on the fly!
