What to Write in a Thank You Card after You Ate

Some people prepare meals for their loved ones. Giving them flowers and gifts isn’t the only way of showing gratitude and affection. One can also write an appreciation message in an old-fashioned way and show appreciation for the meal that has been prepared with much love. If you are wondering how to write a appreciation card for dinners or meals you have attended, you need to read the following easy steps.

Thank You dinner


Address casually

Remember, this letter is being written to someone you have spent time with and shared friendly moments. You don’t have to be formal and professional. You can be casual and loving. You can address the friends of relatives who have had you over for dinner or lunch by their name or by saying other causal terms. 

Make it hand written

Don’t go for cards and printed thank you letters and notes. You shoud write a short appreciation message. This would have a very loving impression on the recipient. He will feel how you have genuinely taken out time to thank him. 

Perhaps the easiest way is to create a video when you have your smartphone or equipment come by and send it over – Look at how people appreciates one taking care of each other by providing others with food in need.

Mention details

When you thank the person for making lunch or dinner for you, you may thank him in a better way by mentioning the dishes you have never had before and how you loved their cooking. You should mention your favorite dish from the dinner and the one that you ate more than anyone else in the party. You may also mention details like the spice in something that made you go wow! These details will show how much attention you paid to the meal prepared for you. Further, it will also enhance the affection of the recipient of the letter. You may also mention a certain incident from the meal that you will always remember and cherish as good memory. 

End sweetly

You can end sweetly by saying how you would love to have your friends over at your place sometime too or how you will do the same for others in the future. Also, you can ask for the recipe of your favorite dish from the meal to actually show much you loved it. Mention a joke or humorous sentence that will enlighten the mood of the reader. Then end the appreciation message nicely by writing your name and the name of your wife or companion who was with you there at the meal and loved the dinner or meal too. This would be a perfect appreciation letter.

Dear Emma and Jorge 

A big thank you for buying Smith and I dinner last night. The meal as well as your company was wonderful for us. You guys made our night amazing and full of memories. It was really fun to be around you. We have meet after a year and I still feel the sparkle in our friendship has not changed a bit. 

The chicken was delicious and the dessert was simply amazing. It was hard for me to believe that you made this and Jorge actually assisted you. Smith was quite impressed with all the presentation. I can’t wait to do it all over again. 

Yours lovely friends,

Lita and Smith

Here are some awesome thank you notes just for you.
