Thank you for dinner

Sample "Thank You for Dinner" wording.

After a dinner party, it's always a good idea to send a thank you note within a few days. If it's your sister who has you over for dinner every weekend (and you host her family too), you can usually skip the formality, but otherwise, just do it. Chances are, you have a lot to be thankful for.

Think about everything that goes into hosting a meal: plan the menu, shop for ingredients, clean the house, set the table, cook the meal, serve the meal, clean the dishes, and then clean the house all over again if children were involved. I'm sure you say thanks on your way out but wouldn't a little "thanks again" note be that much nicer?

If you received a hand-written invitation to a dinner party, you should handwrite the thank you note. For a casual dinner with your good friends or an Evite invitation, email or a thank you phone call the next day will do.

Thank You for Dinner: Sample notes

Dear Maura and Neil,

Just wanted to thank you again for last night. We had an absolute blast with you guys. The kids played so well we forgot they were there, the food was delicious, and my face hurts from laughing so much. What more could we ask for?

Next time our place!


Dear Jana and Ray,

Thanks so much for dinner last night! The food was fabulous and those wines were outstanding. Thanks for sharing them with us!

It was so nice to finally catch up. Let's put another date on the calendar soon. Does the 29th work for you?


Thank you for dinner
Dear Kay and Bob,

We had such much fun with you last night! Thank you for that amazing dinner. The chicken was so fantastic my kids are begging me to get the recipe-- I can tell you that has never happened before! Everything was delicious, including of course that amazing dessert that looked so professional I still can't believe you MADE that.

We so appreciated your having us. It was great getting to know everyone better. We look forward to more fun in the future!

Thanks again.


Dear Xander and Yeta,

What a great evening! Thank you so much for dinner. We ate and drank too much but couldn't help ourselves; everything was outstanding. And that game was a riot. I am still laughing thinking about it.

It was such a nice end to a long week. Thanks for having us! Can't wait to do it again soon.


Thank you for dinner
Dear Jessica and Troy,

It was great to see you on Saturday. Thanks a ton for hosting dinner at your house. The kids were so excited to see you, and of course it's always fun to play with the dogs!

Thank you also for the fantastic gifts for the kids. Camryn LOVES origami-- she and her friends can play for hours making all sorts of things! And Nate is bananas about his magic kit. Today he walked to school with his top hat on his head and his wand in his hand. He was thrilled to impress all of the kids at school as he pulled a rabbit out of his hat!

It was so nice to see you and catch up. We really miss you and wish we lived closer. Hopefully it won't be too long before we see you again.

Much love,


Dear Tina and Gary,

We just wanted to remind you what a great time we had at dinner the other night. You two are truly impressive cooks! We are still talking about that delicious shrimp, and the cake looked like something out of a magazine.

We always enjoy spending time with you all and the kids get along great. We’re looking forward to next time at our place!

Thanks so much,


Thank you for dinner
Dear Mrs. and Mr. Mister,

We are still talking about the wonderful evening we had with you! It was so thoughtful and generous of you to invite us to dinner in our own town. Dinner was absolutely delicious and we so enjoyed getting to know you.

We're very excited about the wedding; Heather and Ralph make an outstanding couple. We look forward to having Ralph as our son-in-law and to many fine years ahead.

Thank you again for your hospitality.

Warm Regards,

Anita and Don,

Well that was worth hunting down a sitter for! You guys rock. The food was elegant, the drinks were top-quality as always, and it was so much fun that my head still hurts. Thank you so much for having us!!

Looking forward to more fun this summer.



Dear Janet,

I just wanted to write a quick note to thank you again for the lovely dinner you arranged for my birthday. It was truly a wonderful night out and so special to celebrate with dear friends. We are truly blessed to live in a great community with so many wonderful people. I feel very lucky to have met you and look forward to many more fun times together.

Thanks again for everything.

With love,


Dear Karen and Nora,

Thank you so much for hosting such a lovely party. It's always so nice to see you both, and it was fun to visit with you and with so many of our friends. And of course, I'm always impressed with the amazing food you serve. The butternut squash ravioli is truly the best I've ever had!

I hope you enjoy this holiday season and I hope we'll see each other more often in the new year.

All the best,


Dear Renee and Matt,

You two are quite the gifted party-throwers! We had the best time last night. All the food was fantastic, the music was perfect, and Matt, those mixed drinks were way too good. It was so fun to see all the neighbors and we even met some new ones.

Thanks so much for providing such a great evening for everyone. People will be talking about it for some time!

Warm regards,
