When someone thinks enough of you to invite you to a dinner party, you should send a thank you note as soon as possible afterward. Don’t be surprised if you are on the next guest list because of your excellent manners.
What a lovely dinner! Thank you so much for inviting me and being such a gracious hostess. You have always been an excellent cook, and you really outdid yourself with the lasagna dish. I hope to see you at the next civic club meeting.
Dear James and Judy,
Thank you for inviting Sarah and me to your dinner party. The exquisite lamb shank was delicious. I would love to have your recipe, but I doubt it will be anywhere near as good as yours. Sarah and I are having some friends over for an open house during the holidays, and we would love to have you join us. I’ll call you as soon as we have the details.
