Sample Thank You Note

for Dinner

Dear Sophie and Paul:

Dinner was absolutely fantastic. Alan and I truly enjoyed it.

Every bite was scrumptious, from the tender and delicious filet mignon, to that luscious pecan caramel cheesecake that melted in our mouths.

Honestly Sophie, you outdid yourself!

And Paul, you are quite the cornhole pro. Alan is demanding a rematch.

We had a marvelous time with the two of you, as usual. Let's do it again soon--next time at our place.

Thanks again, for a wonderful evening.

Leslie and Alan


Sample Thank You Note for a Coworker


I know that you missed your sister Rita’s birthday dinner last Friday so you could double-check the Williamson proposal figures while I was in Boston.

Thanks to you, the proposal was ready for this morning’s meeting; which was, I might add, a huge success.

I truly appreciate your stepping up for me when I got stranded at the airport. It’s good to have people like you on the team.

Please accept this gift certificate for dinner at TRU. I remember how much you enjoy French food.

I thought you might like to take Rita out for a belated birthday celebration. Just call a week or so ahead to reserve a table.

Thanks again, for all of your help.

Warm regards,

Great job!
